I forgot to say to George that this is a very nice picture. Is that little island in the background Peaked Island?

Very good picture! LIKE!

Best regards Z.

Typically, the monasteries in Ethiopia prohibit women and perhaps female animals. (I visited some of the ones on the islands in Lake Tana where women were prohibited.) I think there are places for women (nunneries) in Ethiopia too, which probably prohibit men. But the interesting thing about Debre Damos is that the visitors (men) have to climb a 20 meter rope.

I was here at the 100th Anniversary back in 2003. They were trying to reenact the flight with a replica, but there just wasn't enough wind that morning. At the very minute, 100 years before, that the Wrights made their flight, I jogged at about 10ft/sec from the beginning of their path to the end, the same true ground speed the Wrights flew at. It's one of the greatest moments of my life, and I'm grateful no one else in attendance thought to do it. Heck, hardly anyone was even over by the historical path at that moment. The crowd was a couple hundred yards away staring at the rain-soaked replica 'Flyer' (which we all knew wasn't flying anywhere that morning).

Oh my God! Oh my God! That is so gross. That lady needs to put some shoes on. That is disgusting!

This is a nice picture showing the relationship of the Tower of the Sun to Treasure Island and the Elephant Towers.

Indeed:  not one word!

Sevan prehistoric sites in the Cuyama Valley were excavated by Archaeological Research Inc, UCSB and Cal State Northridge from 1970 to 1973.
The sites were never written up or published until Dr. V.A. Levulette and the Far Western Anthropological Research Group pulled the results together and published them in five volumes in 2014-15.

The very narrow Clark's Fork Canyon is how the Nez Perce escaped from the US Army in Yellowstone in Sept 1877.

At this point, all of the old buildings, save those that were sold off and remodeled or refit to other uses, are now gone. Utah State University now owns the property. They are building a regional campus on the property beginning with a large building that is now nearly complete. Will be interesting to see how long before it shows up on Gogle Earth.
