It was literally a breath of fresh air to experience the fall colors this year. We are headquartered in fire-ravaged Sonoma, California. We evacuated for about a week, but unlike several of our friends, we had a place to come home to. We returned to smoke and ash. Some areas of the Napa and Sonoma valleys were destroyed: homes and memories lost, automobiles and possessions melted. But certainly not all was lost, as you can see in the above picture that we snapped on our way over the mountain from Sonoma to Napa and the old vines below, some of which were still sporting fall plumage after as many as 100 years.

Watch out where the huskies go, and don’t you eat that yellow snow.
God tipped over the snowglobe and fresh flakes fall, frosting the castle and the Canadian Rockies.
I am thrilled to be one of he first to visit an exciting new tourist destination, the island of Delitius.
This uninhabited paradise, defined by unspoiled beaches and a plateau bordered by lush greenery, is located atop a tectonic plate in a tropical zone. While temperatures can briefly hit 140 degrees F, or more, it cools down quickly to become quite pleasant. It is a healthy place to vacation, especially due to its namesake cuisine, a “delitius” marriage of fish, potatoes and brussels sprouts. Said one early visitor: “There is really nothing to do here but eat.”
Delitius in certainly to my taste. Book your stay early. Like many hot tourist spots, it could become spoiled fast.
Donald Trump’s careless, immoral immigration order is not only tragic for humanity but for travel, which promotes understanding and peace.
Shortly after the twin towers went down, I got an email from a National Geographic editor that a pending assignment for a story about an island in the Indian Ocean would not go forward. Exotic destinations were out, he said, Americans were turning inward.
