July, 2010 I was here on Retreat with a friend. This monastery is located high in the mountains amongst the Red Woods, the flowing rivers while deer and wild turkeys shared in the peacefulness at the Cistercian Nuns Redwoods Monastery in Whitehorn, California
I have added many photos of villages in jungles in chiapas mexico. It was one of my favorite places to be. I did live there during the left wing zapatista revolt every evening the clouds would pass over and through our home. Curfew for all who wanted to be safe was 8:00 pm. ...
In March of 1990 I traveled to La Feria, Texas looking for my dream home. I found it and purchased my "castle" on 212 W. Magnolia. This is a beautiful little city to visit and it has some of the best Mexican food in its local restaurants..
In August of 2000 I was here in Michoacán del Campo and stayed at a historic hacienda with acres and acres of gorgeous woodlands all around. This town is ultra beautiful with rolling hills, jungle forest and rivers running through.
Visited Jacksonville Florida in 2008 traveling by car from Texas. The trip was long and more challenging because of detours. The scenery was beautiful as I passed from State to State., saw the Battleship in Alabama, drove through their underwater tunnel, enjoyed the many trees along Mississippi's highway, refreshed with orange juice and sweet bread at Florida's visitor center and enjoyed family at my sister-in-law's home.
