April Travels Part III: Colorado National Monument

 

 

 

 
Above the Colorado city of Grand Junction is the magnificent Colorado National Monument one of the jewels of the US National Parks with which we were unfamiliar. The Rim Rock Drive that winds along the edge of the canyons must be one of the great drives of the world, so put it on your bucket list and prepare to be in awe.

April Travels Part I: The Palisade

 

 

 

I think the photos speak for themselves. This was our first day visiting Colorado and Utah last week where the grandeur of Palisade Mountain dominates the landscape above the small town of Gateway, Colorado.

Ascending the over four hundred steps of the Torre del Mangia of the Palazzo Publico in Siena.
Visit Italy Day Five to enjoy the spectacular view from the top of the tower.

Dramatic Tuscany

Whether in glorious colour or monochrome Tuscany takes your breath away.

 

The Three Graces cheekily contemplate two magnificent frescoes in the Libreria Piccolomini of Siena Cathedral.  On the left Enea Silvio, bishop of Siena, presents Eleonora d’Aragona to Emperor Federico III and on the right Enea receives the cardinal’s hat

The photo was taken with an iPhone 6S during our recent visit to Siena in October.
You can find more images of both the library and of Siena by visiting Italy Day Five.
