This week’s response to the challenge is a tale of three travels.
We saw a “Close” for the first time during our most recent trip to Edinburgh in Scotland . Basically, these are narrow passageways between buildings, or small streets that are dead-ended. A lot of the closes in Edinburgh are found on the Royal Mile. Here are pictures of a couple of closes.
Last year, my sister, older daughter, and I, hiked the Little Haystack-Lincoln-Lafayette section of the Appalachian Trail in the Franconia Ridge section the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The trail running along the mountain ridge looks narrow enough to be scary, but they are OK to traverse on a day with good weather. This hike was one for the ages, at least as far as I was concerned, and something that I realistically hope to able to revisit at least a couple of more times while the body is still able.
Finally, these pictures are from a hike in Ditinn during our trip to Guinea in 2012 to meet up with our daughter (who was a Peace Corps Volunteer in that country at that time). I think every picture in the sequence below talks to the theme of this week’s challenge, perhaps in different ways.
