Yet another picture of my favorite vacation place and that is Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. You get good exercise hiking to the many ruins and when you get there it has a definite spiritual quality. I enjoy just sitting at the ruins and taking it all in.
For me this is one of the most perfectly composed pictures I have ever taken. It is of the top storage area in the main community building for the Shaker village. I have been there on several occasions and never tire of going back.
One thing I definitely miss about New Jersey is all the diners that were there. We frequented many of them but this one was perhaps our favorite. If you notice from the picture that gas prices were considerably different in those years!!
