Northern Rough Winged Swallow520 viewsDue to the easy access of the nest I will not disclose it's location.

I believe this to be as identified but, if you know it to be another bird please, let me know.

Jose254 viewsThis is Jose, one of our, shall we say extended crew members. Jose is taking a little R & R from cleaning bugs off the windshield of the Albatross, a job usually reserved for the Radioman and may I say, much easier while aircraft is parked.

The Osa Peninsula of Costa Rico is a perfect place for Jose to relax.

Hedge Apple?381 viewsWe found this, one of natures little oddities, along the Great Allegheny Passage, one of our many bike trips.

I have no idea of it's usefulness but, if the Major Leagues decide to go green, I'll be on the leading edge of the national pastime.

Pinnacle Lookout Tower408 viewsPinnacle Lookout Tower occupies the spot where an old Fire Tower once stood and is visible from the town of Unicoi, TN.

There is a trail leading to the tower from I-26, Unicoi exit. Better take along some water and energy bars, you will need both.
