Re: Where is this place?

Gotta be somewhere in Scotland, I travelled there but no idea about this. I just found a place called Tongue, how nice.

Re: Where is this place?

It looks a bit like Loch Leven

Re: Where is this place?

I suppose it does a bit (the Highland one), and that's less than ten miles away.

That's probably close enough (I got in with Nevada which is four times bigger than Scotland!).

It's Loch Ossian.

Re: Where is this place?

Loch is a very good word.

Sorry. This is going to be tricky. Ha!

Nope. But close..I think in fact it's a little bit different type of pine.
Same trees. The oldest ones are in the White Mts. which are also in the Great Basin but on the other side of Nevada (and just over the California border).

Also, your latest looks to be in Hildale, UT. Fundamentalist school crossing sign gives it away.

Hey! Colorado City. Arizona. I knew somebody would read the sign well.

What about this?

Yes!

I just wanted to open the door, walk in and start my usual "Ok, guys, so today we are going to...". The ancient orchard around lives, people can still pick fruit freely.

Trip was fabulous. Intense, but fab. I prefer to look and soak up the moment than take pics, but some will stay with me for good.

Re: Where is this place?

I think large open spaces have positive effect on human soul..pettiness disappears?

Re: Where is this place?

Or maybe Plockton, Scotland.

Famous for palm trees, and the weather looks about right!
