The Sistine Chapel - absolutely insane. The Vatican museum is a death trap but you have to go through it to reach the chapel where the guards are shouting “silencio” over the heads of the tourists.

Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Zion National Park in summer

South Rim Grand Canyon in summer (great in winter)

Like others, the Sistine Chapel in summer of 2001. Really felt not worth, elbow to elbow for hours. I wonder if Covid will change their queuing process.

1. The picturesque Charles Bridge in Prague on a sunny weekend day.



2. Times Square



3. Mont Saint-Michel, France. Never made it past the 1000+ car (and 100+ bus) parking lot. Traffic was backed up for 5 km.

I’m now having flashbacks to Zion summer of 2018 when the shuttle buses were running and if you started from the visitor’s center, it was a two hour wait to get on the bus. (The workaround was to walk the bike path up a coupe of bus stops and then get on the bus from there- quicker and a pretty walk along the river) I suspect that the current capacity controls now in place in Zion main, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain, etc. will remain even as covid fades.

This! We went for the 50th anniversary over Christmas break. What a mistake that was!

Times Square, New Years Eve, pre-covid (obviously).

I got lifted off my feet to be sucked under the crowd and the lad that took me had to reach down and drag me to the surface before I got trampled. I was terrified.
Ah, youth!

I honestly don't know what a DH is. I only know it as designated hitter. Could you please fill me in?
