This is part 8 of a series of posts where I post a picture or two from a location that I really liked. I call them "wow" spots because usually when I saw them, I said, wow. Since I travel alone, it doesn't matter if I say it out loud or just to myself. Although if people are around, I try to be quiet about it or else they look at me funny as though I'm talking to myself. Now I'm not saying I don't talk to myself when I'm traveling, but so far (knock on wood), I haven't answered myself on a regular basis. So far, so good.
This post gets me caught up to where I am currently, however, I'll be pulling out of here this Friday, 7/29/2016.
