Via Bryce, Pink Coral Sands, Sequoia, Yosemite, and the San Francisco Bay area. We were referred to Susie's by a local as the best place for coffee and pie and we weren't disappointed. The main point of this post is that while sitting having our coffee...

Here is an account of meetings, conferences and groups that expressed interest to convene in Moab. Among them, the Farmers Prairie Dog Conference will be held in Moab in November. Don't know much more about it, but trying to find out more. The Rocky Mountain Psychological Association did some research to meet in Moab. The organizer replied, 'Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any direct flights to Moab from Denver." Perhaps with the approval of lengthening the landing strip at Canyonlands Airport, Moab could pick up flights from Denver and Salt Lake City. Moab...
Dear Landlords of Moab by dcroncher

Dear Landlords of Moab - It seems there is a conspiracy in this town to deny housing to any and all prospective tenants who are pet owners. After two months of browsing I have yet to see one ad that doesn't include the phrase **NO PETS** written just like so, for special emphasis from what I gather. As a pet owner this strikes me as more than a little unfair. What could be the reason for this boycott? Maybe you all have problems keeping the carpets which you insist on installing in your properties un- soiled? Perhaps you are convinced that people who aren't rich eno...

Denmark is a very beautiful place to photograph!!1 Just like many places in the world, but I happen to be in Denmark so this is what you get. One of the places to visit is the village of Dragør, a delightful seaport located on Amager, one of the many islands surrounding Copenhagen. Excellent eating places on the Harbor front overlooking the ocean. Esperson's is a delightful place to eat and worth walking to. Delicious fresh fish, salmon, and shrimp for the seafood lover. Serve also a fantastic hamburger for those who just can't resist trying one. It is famous for it...

It may sound surprising; after all, astronomy and night photography work by being in darkness. However, Flashlights are very important for both. Even...

Safety is not always first in our thoughts when we are trying to accomplish a task, but it is an important part of everything that we do. The childhood phrase, "it's all fun and games, 'til someone gets hurt," is just as true in adulthood as it was while playing rough with friends. An adult's mishap usually costs more money, takes longer to heal, and affects more people, than the young child's does.  The most commonly found form of safety is found during sports. For the players, that is the first thing they do. Before learning, or practicing their sports, they must ...
