To eldancer1: thanks for critique
Hello Elau, thank you for the nice critique of the Tonopah sculpture. I had heard of that town for years from my uncle who loved to stop there for a beer on his way to other places. It is very charming in an old western style.
I know what you mean about exploring the places around where you live. There is so much for me to explore right here in my own county.
Trekearth helps me to get out there to see and experience the world more, like my hiking trips to the sierras. I saw more this year than in the last 5 years.
Have a great holiday,
