Amazing

So the Giant descended into the Irish Sea, swam across the Atlantic instead of trying to land in Scotland, then what? Anyway, got out of water in Idaho!

Re: Amazing

Re: Amazing

Rock formations always seem to look more
mythical when viewed from water!

Could this be the "impetus" for a new album???

You can only see these from the river so not many get to!

Funny...

I just came from Washington so I now recognize the names of these places in your photos after driving by/through them! I haven't spent much time there...it's an amazing state!

Re: Great formation

Thank you! I guess it's not too shabby for a disposable camera.

Happy New Year!
