Default Pikes Peak scenic view

A view from the scenic Pikes Peak Highway. Unfortunately, the cog railway which has taken many visitors to the top may be shutting down due to aging infrastructure and lack of funds.

Be sure to read the linked editorial concerning the rampant conflicts of interests, involving the owner of the Cog, the local daily paper, the Gazette, and the Broadmoor Hotel. The latter has been involved in a highly controversial "Land Swap" push, which would convert a public park into private hotel grounds.

I found some petroglyphs in California, near the Nevada border. They look more dramatic during sunrise or sunset than in mid-day. The other four pictures are mine, but the one taken by a professional photographer during sunrise is what got me interested in the area.

The petroglyphs took quite a bit of effort to find, but it was definitely worth it. Due to vandalism concerns (see: http://articles.latimes.com/2012/nov...theft-20121119 for an example) , they are not located on any publicly available map that I'm aware of. But after days of research and hours spent climbing up mountains and around boulders, I was finally able to locate them

Wow- those are nice. I've seen some in my travels, but that's a really impressive concentration, and look to be in very good condition.

Default Iron Ore Docks

These are in Marquette, MI. One is still operational. The other is decommissioned.
Mark Rose put me onto these. They are called "pocket docks." The functional one has 100 bins, or pockets, on each side. Each holds 250 tons of ore pellets. Two ships can be loaded at once.
