Beautiful stuff. And I can't help thinking that Larry lived a wonderful life, having done all of these trips, and seen all of this stuff with his own eyes.

Truly remarkable.

Wow. What a rich mixture of beauty, enticement (I'm ready to go!), and of course sadness. Thank you so much! :thumbsup:

Just read this post. What a blessed journey he had. After all the beautiful things he saw in life, I suppose he feels right at home now.

During all those trips I went cross country solo I always wondered if it would happen to me. I never was bothered with the idea I might die doing somthin I loved but I remember hoping that if it happened that I wouldn't suffer for a lot of time (maybe days).
Larry was a special person.
