41. A Place to See Forever

My favorite places in the world have vast expanses to look out over. An ocean, a desert, the tops of a forest, the high mountains with views across the world.
For some reason, I believe we can see ourselves better when there is nothing blocking our way to see forever.

42. Lone Egret

Walking quietly along the water’s edge, how quiet and beautiful the egret. How elegant and proud and graceful.
An inspiration to those who watch it float through the sky.

43. Water's Edge

When I see a body of water, an ocean or a lake or even a moving river, I am always amazed at what lies beneath the water’s edge. There is an entire world under there, a world like our own.
Yet like our sky, the top of their world reveals little. Perhaps we are lucky to see a fish jump or a whale breech. We may find bits of seaweed along the shoreline, or shells washed up from the bottom of the sea.
But imagine, standing at the water’s edge, what lies beneath.
It is impossible.

44. Honest Greeting

When animals greet each other, it is only a matter of seconds and they know if they are friend or foe. Sometimes, as with prey and preditor, it is not even a matter of meeting, but of seeing or smelling from long distances.
What if a human, upon saying hello, or shaking hands, or even just looking into another’s eyes, could know in that instant if they were compatible, if they were to be wary of one another, or if they were to be a trusted pair for life?

45. Sliver of Land

As much as we populate the earth, their will always be a place set aside to be as it was.
A sliver of land that can remind us how the earth used to be before we came along.

46. Where the Buffalo Roam

The first thoroughfares of North America, save for the time-obliterated paths of mastodon or musk-ox, were the paths made by roaming bison and deer during seasonal migration, and between feeding grounds and salt licks. Many of these routes, hammered by countless hoofs instinctively following watersheds and the crests of ridges in avoidance of summer muck and winter snowdrifts, were followed by the Indians as courses to hunting grounds and as warriors' paths.
These paths, where the buffalo roamed, were invaluable to explorers.

47. Living Life

Humpback Whales
These giants of the sea live an extraordinary life. They sing to one another over many miles and leap out of the water for the sheer joy of it. Why not live life to its fullest.
“When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.”
Jacques Cousteau

48. Graceful

Giraffes are one of my favorite animals to come upon in the wilds of Africa. They have the gangly legs of a new-born foal and a body that looks unbalanced with its long neck and short, upright body.
But to see a giraffe run, to see a herd of them run, their grace and elegance is unmatched by any other creature around them.

49. Gentle Giant of Africa

The African Elephant is one of the most intelligent animals, with a sophisticated system of communicating. Like whales, they can create sounds that are outside the range of human hearing (called subsonic sound). By blowing air through large chambers in their nasal passages they can create low rumbling sounds that can carry as far as five miles.
African elephants have also been observed to become highly agitated when they come across the bodies of their own, and they have been seen to pay great attention to the skull and ivory of long-dead elephants.
They are the smart giants of Africa.

50. Lost Somewhere

In travel, we almost always get lost at some point or another. In true exploration, it is inevitable. If you know exactly where you are going, you will miss the best part..... the journey.
When I get lost, I always try and enjoy the moment of being in a new place, rather than fall into the fear of knowing that I am lost.
It doesn’t always work, but I am here, so I obviously found the way.
