Geez, we just rotate through family photos.

But this one could keep you browsing for hours, Al:

(And for those who aren't ER'd, this website contains photos that aren't safe for work by any stretch of the imagination...)

Just a shot of a nice sunset....or is it a sunrise? I don't recall whether I found it during a Google search, or if someone here in the Forums had posted it. If it was the latter, "Thanks!".

And my other desktop has this as the background....a elk in front of a cabin in Rocky Mountain N.P. At this point it was about 75' from our van.....about 5 minutes later it walked across the road directly in front of the van. Too cool!

Just switched to this yesterday. Eldest sparring with a 4th degree last weekend. Saw this one when I was downloading and thought it was funny.

Excellent downtown Seattle view. A question- usualy on a clear day the wind is from the North, but you seem to be on a North approach to Sea-Tac. Had you already taken off and headed back South for your destination?

Looks more like an outhouse. Are you planning to sell compost?
