Art thrives in a deserted town

This is a bittersweet story of a town whose abandoned streets have taken on a new, although temporary, life.  It’s a shame to know that these works will be gone some day.

Atlas Obscura never ceases to amaze me with its collection of astounding places throughout the world.  I encourage you to browse.

Trying out my LeFors Design bookmark tool

Just wanting to see if my LeFors Design bookmark tool works.  I figured if I’m going to link to something, it should be to a story I contributed to and mentioned in an earlier post.

Mesa Verde National Park located in Colorado, US | Atlas Obscura | Curious and Wondrous Travel Destinations.

My first travel post!

If you are a friend of mine, you’ve most likely heard me talk about one of my favorite sites on the web Atlas Obscura.   The site is a collection of unique, quirky, and sometimes “other-wordly” places that exist around the world.   To better summarize what Atlas Obscura is…perhaps their mantra posted on their site would be best

“There is something new under the sun, every day, all over the world.  Around every corner is something that will surprise the hell out of you.  Atlas Obscura is for people who still believe in discovery.

We hope that’s you.”

Every time I browse the site I learn something, and makes me want to travel more and more and more (no offense Indiana).  Today I got to contribute some of my pictures and videos to the site, particularly an entry about Mesa Verde National Park.

 I took the photos in March 2010 while I was in Durango, CO for work.  Not a bad place to have some free time.    It was a real thrill to contribute to Atlas Obscura.  I wish the organization nothing but the best and will continue to support and hopefully contribute to again some day.

Enough of the chatting…here is the article
