    Quite the opposite of Copacabana or Ipanema beaches, in a good way- no crowds and lots of tranquility. Looks like a beautiful location.

    How on Earth can anyone "think" Bolsonaro will "improve things, with all he promised, including the devastation of the environment, from clearing out Amazon to allowing seriously nasty chemicals into Human food chain, according to the capital's orders, to advocating ever more violence inflicted upon those who are different then him, including murder of political activists etc. etc.?!?

    Concretely, in terms of these images and the general theme of the thread - these sights are doomed to ever more erosion and disappearance, along with those who would advocate active action to preserve them... The mind boggles sometimes...

    You mean he is a weakling and has no balls? Why have faith in him, then?

    This thread is made to let the pictures speak so to say....
    Political thoughts about the future of a country are off topic here...:)
    Please return to posting pictures.

    Thanks.

    Here are some photos from a couple hikes in Arizona. An old Windows phone was used to take these.

    First shots are from the Flatiron in the Superstition Mountains (about a half hour east of Phoenix):
    This shot was taken at the end of the hike, but shows our destination (the outcrop furthest in the distance).

    Almost to the outcrop (Flatiron). Can see two people on it, for size perspective.

    A makeshift memorial where a plane crashed near the top in 2011 claiming 6 people's lives (including 3 children). Bits of the plane can still be seen scattered about. Story here: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/3-adults-3-kids-killed-in-arizona-plane-crash

    Hoodoos at the top. Clouds were very low that day.

    View from top.

    These are from Picketpost Mountain (about an hour east of Phoenix):
    What we are hiking up.

    Getting close to the top.

    The road we drove in on.

    Saguaros are skinny from lack of rain. Ones this tall are well over a hundred years old.

    Weavers Needle on the horizon. Is 17 miles (27 km) away from this location, in the Superstition Mountains.

    Friend I did these (and many other) hikes with is a good landscape photographer. Some of his photos can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelgreene_wildmoments/

    Yen, with men like him there will be fewer and fewer such images to post, so what's the point of posting them, if we are not going to defend them?
