    Sounds like a ZapperZ Photo Contest Title - well - almost.

    Here are some pictures taken up towards Turbo's neck of the woods.

    There are some other great photos by PFers in Moonbear's Disqualified! thread and several of ZapperZ's Photo Contest threads.

    I thought a separate thread of PFers photos of outdoors might be in order.

    So please contribute photos of your favorite places.

    Nice! Reminds me of this place I've been to called Bash Bish Falls. Beautiful scenery up there.

    Moxie Falls is one of my favorite places in the state. With all the rafters, canoeists, and campers visiting that region these days, the trail is heavily used. When we were kids, my friends and I used to hike up the road from the West Forks, take the trail to the falls, and hang out there most of the day without seeing another soul.

    Very nice!!!

    We lived in Northern Ca. during my last couple of years of high school, and a buddy and I frequented a nearly identical fall and pool that we too had to ourselves back then. My buddy's Black Lab, Grunt, would dive off of the cliffs right after us!

    We later named a goat in Grunt's honor. :biggrin:

    Here are the ruins of an abandoned boathouse on one of my favorite ponds. It doesn't have the best trout fishing, but it's OK, and it's easy to get to.

    That image of the waterfall is beautiful!

    And the pasture with fog and mountains is stunning!

    Another foggy one

    I went back to the cove this morning. It was incredibly foggy as you can see from this shot. Click on the image to see it in a larger size for more detail.

    Definitely do. Send your work to Nature or National Geographic! Actually I think NG.
