Eastern State Penitentuary - Philadelphia

Looking up through the bars to the windows on the third floor.
This is a room with a view. You could lay back in your springy bed and look up at the stars.

This barbers chair has been home for many illegal haircuts - as in incarcerated people.

On the water at Smith Island

Later afternoon shot of a series of pilings, carb pots and smooth water on Smith Island.

This is a nice twisted broken pier on Smith Island

This is a land locked what I call flat bottom boat. I am not sure when this was taken out last but would have to be the person using it now.

Wilmington & Western RR - #98 4-4-0 Steamer

The favorite tool for the trainmen is the oil can along with the coal shovel. Here are the main drivers, little steam and their oil cans.

 #98 is pulling into the station passing the water tower.

Here the trainmen stands alongside #98 keeping warm on a blistery cold day.

This is what I call insurance for sunny days..
This is an early form of portable sterio radios...

Waterfalls, Mountain Goat and Avalanche Lake

With late snow still melting the waterfalls had plenty of water to show off.  Here is a silky waterfall above Saint Mary Lake.

 Mountain Goats were plentiful and thankfully the bear stayed their distance. This goat was definately relaxing in a bed of what they enjoyed as dinner.

Here is Avalanche lake with several sizable logs near it's exit to Avalance Creek.  The lake if fed by multiple waterfalls which cover over the lip of the bowl.
