    This is a beautiful picture of a water fall into a cenote.

    That certainly IS a wonderful waterfall, though no amount of money nor padded barrels would see me over its edge ...

    Ah! So it was a waterfall who said you've got me over a barrel was it.

    I don't blame you. There are some where you can walk down into it safely
    but I wouldn't dare. There is a park in Cave-in-Rock where I could visit
    where one of these sink holes happened. They look like caves and you
    can go inside one like a cave. No having to go down a hole to see what
    it looked like. I had to walk around and find the cave opening and some
    of them in Mexico have walk in caves where you can go into a cenote
    without going down.

    Judy,
    I saw a program on the Travel Channel where someone who lived in Mexico had one of those on his property. He used it as a natural swimming pool. The water stayed at a warm temperature (in the 70sF) year round. It was beautiful.

    Hi Corno. the picture you posted tells a lot of stories for me. Makes me think of how it feels to live in front of a church. and when you loog around, almost everything is green! People there live in a flat land at the foot of a mountain range, but do you thinks they climb up the mountains when they're bored? Or when they need a magical fruit to heal a disease? Or probably pay tribute to some gods. I can only come up with a thousand questions here. But as per the photo, it's really beautiful. Calm, yet unusual.

    Unfortunately, I can't get the second and third photos to expand into wallpapers. That always frosts me when a picture remains postage stamp size. Why do people post such things?

    That first picture, judging from the roofs, must be someplace where it snows. WHERE is it?

    Not too long ago, I read someplace that some landowners in Arizona suddenly discovered that their place had a vast cave underneath. I guess they are still in the process of exploring to see what all is there.

    Yes, eye catchimg.

    I found this arresting picture elsewhere some time ago, and couldn't refrain from saving it, despite the feeling it had been manipulated at least a little - as so many photographs and even videos are today.

    But no matter.

    I know the territory where it was taken so appreciate its historic and photogenic merit, augmented for me by otherwise limited exposure to like treasures. The preservation of such a heritage photographically adds significzntly - considering how Canada and indeed much of the globe is being despoiled by "progressive" developers ploughing under remnants of past glories and Nature's beauties for short term economc gain.

    Who would have the audacity and bad taste to build a high-rise condo overlooking such a view? It could happen here, where our lakeshores are being denuded of their natural beauty and lined progressively by ugly monster homes or condos. But then, I suppose the people who buy such properties wouldn't appreciate such an outlook - a saving grace, perhaps.

    Do I sound too sour?

    I tried to comment on the Goytland picture but my reply turned up as a response to the Mexican one!

    right one.
