Secluded Hideaway

This beautifully railed staircase led down to a cave-like enclosure, giving access to a secluded section of beach on the Philippine Sea.

Path into the Wild

This is another look at the beautiful boardwalk in the Russell Lakes State Wildlife Area near Saguache, Colorado. It seemingly leads across the San Luis Valley into the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range beyond.

Path of Tranquility

My wife and I discovered Russell Lakes State Wildlife Area near Saguache, Colorado by chance. It is a beautifully serene area nestled between the mountain ranges and not far from Great Sand Dunes National Park. It’s inhabitants seem to be mostly small birds, but the park’s location is breathtaking.

Ragged Fence

This ragged old log fence creates the edge of the Siamese Twins Trail in Garden of the Gods, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This photo is taken on the southern side of the trail and is often used by horses to access the Siamese Twins rock formation so watch your step. It is a great short trail to…

Up or Down?

This is a spiraling staircase in Vatican City. I love great architecture and design. Although this is the way down and to the exit, I think the image begs the question of up or down? Since this is a religious site, that very question might have been the architect’s intention.

The Depths of Dubrovnik

Within the walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia is a labyrinth of alleys.  Stairs guide you down into the heart of the ancient city and doorways lead into people’s homes.

Zhangjiajie Path

This is a rain covered pathway in China’s Zhangjiajie National Park. As you can see, the moss grows on everything (the stairs, the rock walls, and even the railings). Zhangjiajie is a beautiful green wilderness where the wildlife, rushing water, and epic rock formations make for some amazing nature hikes.
