    What are the two most amazing places on Earth that you've been to?

    For me it would have to be Pilar Beach in Cuba, and Otter Lake in Northern Saskatchewan ... specifically fishing from a canoe early in the morning with only the Loons ... it was amazing.

    How about you guys?

    Hanging out in the rainforest of Tobago was pretty spectacular.
    Florence for the history.

    idk. Sea world was pretty spectacular the first time... then it became meh.
    Orlando was the bomb, till I moved into it.
    I guess I'm just hard to impress for long periods of time.

    The Dead Sea and the Verdun Canyon were unlike anything I had encountered. Both unique and beautiful in their own ways.

    Well that's a long list for me. A two week hike in the Alps from France, to Italy and Switzerland was pretty nice. I also think that Moab, Utah is pretty special. Way back into the Colorado mountain backcountry in winter is also on that list...pretty incredible too.

    Never heard of these places before. Checked out Old Dime Box at this link (couple photos). Looks like a classic old town, with some great older architecture. I love checking out these type of places. http://www.texasescapes.com/CentralT.../DimeBoxTx.htm

    I had the chance to explore several slot canyons in the Four Corners area of the American West, just fabulous spaces.

    Drift snorkeling the Ichetucknee in central Florida is really nice, too. http://www.floridastateparks.org/ichetuckneesprings/

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.

    Top of Mt. Whitney via Sequoia NP and East Portal Trail. 125 feet deep off Molokini Is, Maui.

    Leaving Joshua Tree NP via Berdoo Canyon jeep trail in a 62 VW type 2 was pretty exciting too.

    Southern Utah is my favorite place to explore. My wife and I were just there about 6 weeks ago. This photo was from Canyonlands National Park, Island District (outside of Moab) taken several years ago.




    My second favorite place is southwestern Colorado around Silverton. There are lots of Jeep roads, ghost towns and old mining ruins around there.

    There was a blackjack table in the old Holiday Inn on the Vegas Strip and a frat party in Athens, GA with the seminal B-52s...

    oddly enough, one time one of those places was home, the local airport when i got home. and I just wanted to go to sleep. two days dragging my bike with me. and flying.

    and the other was a local larger mall once after hours when it was empty after months of the Christmas rush seeing it packed full.

    Ever wonder why they always have umbrella tables in an indoor mall?
    Is this to protect from spit on the upper levels?
