Machu picchu. And climbing Huayna picchu, which is the big rock in the center of this photo. Top of the world.

Being close enough to the flowing lava to poke a stick in it, and see it catch on fire.


Hovering next to schools of butterfly fish at close range. And the Manta Ray experience, watching them pirouette.

Everyone here is posting seriously amazing places! .


I have never been out of the US, so mine is limited. I'm going to say the Badlands in South Dakota. I had been to that area of the US at all, so I had never seen anything like that before. We are going to Utah next, which I am super excited for lol But we are hoping to go on a safari in Africa in the next 2-3 years (Lots of saving to do)

So many but the one that sticks out is sunset at the Grand Canyon. I have never felt so close to God.

There's still plenty to see in the US. I lived there for a little over 50 years and never have tired of going back to places I visited then. I see them differently as I grow older, with more reverence.

I spent two weeks almost in the California wine country. I don't drink and had never been there before. I spent most of my time hiking in the hills that define the various valleys, Anderson, Sonoma, Alexander and Napa, just walking and taking in the subtle colors and the hot, dry weather.

Seeing the sun set over the Pacific Ocean on a deserted beach in Washington state

Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii - seeing all the old lava flows, hiking through the Iki crater, the glowing red crater at sunset

Driving up the coast of Big Sur in California, and hiking through the coast redwoods

The Pantheon in Rome - to think about how old the building is and how it is still standing to this day

Viewing the total solar eclipse on 8/21/2017
