Photos from Chaco Culture Canyon

Postby Winston » August 16th, 2014, 4:35 am

Here are some photos of me from Chaco Culture Canyon, the last national monument I went on my Southwest Road Trip. It has the largest number of Indian ruins in the USA. (Notice the sexy hot blonde I was checking out at the end, whom I snapped photos of from behind lol)

Darn I can't embed them for some reason. It looks like Facebook doesn't allow that anymore. Here is the link to them. Click on the pictures to see all the photos.

My Photos of Chaco Culture Park

Postby Winston » August 30th, 2014, 6:49 pm

New photos!

Ok I've uploaded my photos of Chaco Culture Park into Picasaweb Albums. Here they are below.

Inside the Chaco Culture Park visitor center.

Image

Me at the Indian ruins site.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Ancient Indian petroglyphs I saw while hiking.

Image

View from hiking a trail above the visitor center, which you can see below.

Image

Ranger program at night in the amphitheater about astronomy.

Image

Telescope to look at the moon with. We all lined up to look in it. I never saw the moon that vivid before.

Image

Me at the camping ground nearby, which is the only place you can stay at here, since Chaco Culture Park is far away from any town.

Image

More later.

Here are some photos of me from my Southwest road trip prior to Chaco Culture Park.

Me at Painted Desert, Arizona.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Driving to a forest campground on the border between Arizona and New Mexico.

Image

Found a campsite to park and camp in for the night.

Image

Found a better one closer to the lake. Parked there for the night and slept in the back. This is where I recorded my "5 Benefits Overseas" postcast: http://www.happierabroad.com/podcasts/5_benefits_overseas.mp3

Image

Me by the lake near the campground at 6am the next day. It was too cold there to sleep in, as the forest was at a high altitude in eastern Arizona.

Image

Image

More later.

After the tour, I talked with the ranger girl (a Mexican American) for a long time, since she and I had a lot in common. She was into writing too and shared a lot of my views. I took this photo together with her.

Image

Image

Photographing myself in the bathroom mirror. I did this because the mirror made me look so thin in the reflection. It was unbelievable. But it was hard to capture that on camera.

Image

Image

Image

Me at the UFO museum in Roswell, NM.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Me at a Civil War fort turned museum, near Capitan, NM. Here I'm trying on some civil war re-enactment uniforms.

Hey I like that shirt. Red and blue are my favorite colors, and I like stripes. People commonly wore that in the 70's. Stop telling me what to do. lol :P

Horizontal stripes make the wearer look shorter and fatter. Try vertical stripes of a darker color.
Longer hair would look better on you man, buzz cuts are not for everyone, I stubbornly tried that for a period but it didn't really favor me. Instead, the faux-hawk/loose pompidour makes a "phalic symbolism" that's nice and gives one "confidence" haha.
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

No. I left Arizona in June. What will you do there?

Most people say I look better with shorter hair. Buzz cuts look neat and trim. How come Obama looks good with short hair?

Hair is a pain to deal with. There's a reason why monks and military men get buzz cuts.

I also tend to look good in uniforms and suits for some reason.

Well I've finally booked my ticket back to Asia. I'll be leaving in a few days. Hope you enjoyed my trip reports.

America's nature is great, probably the best. But it's lonely having no one to enjoy it with.

I'll be heading to Taiwan first to visit my parents. Then to Philippines to visit my son and Dianne. And then to China from after that.

That's the game plan. Hope it works this time. Please pray all, that Murphy's Law doesn't get in the way anymore.

Let us know how things go for you in Taiwan. Try to approach girls when you are there like you did in Russia, Ukraine and the Philippines. :D
