That does look like a neat place to go.  I liked seeing the picture of the bearded vulture, don't recall seeing one of those previously.

I don't know how this will work, since I've never shared IG pics via forum before, but I recently made an unplanned visit to White Sands, NM (USA) and was really moved by its beauty.

I'm disappointed I couldn't have waited around a few more days, since twice a year (including the first Sat. in April) they open up the Trinity Test ground zero monument! I'd like to plan a return trip to not only see the monument, but also spend a night camping on the dunes. The night sky is supposed to be beautiful there.

I saw that one too, yet didn't get around to posting it before it didn't show up further.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

I believe Patagonia is in South America.

Going to be in Fairfax, VA for a work trip soon. Won't have much time, but wonder if there is anything nearby (outside of DC) worth seeing. Anyone been to the Manassas battlefield? Other suggestions?

Patagonia is in South America ... Argentina & Chile.

Unless one counts the business, which is in Ventura CA. :icon_wink:

And yes, I've been to Manassass Battlefield a number of times.  I have enjoyed it.  It is a smaller overall park then say Gettysburg or Antietam, although I've enjoyed exploring the area where the 1st Battle was fought which is the most accessible, and I've hiked through a good portion of the 2nd Battle area north of the main area that was fought over in both as well.

Here is another place I'd like to go see ...

If things go bad for gun owners here in Canada this is where I'm going.

It's bad that warhammer might die but it would be a tragedy if it stays dead!
