“Much of the farming done at Machu Picchu was done on the hundreds of man-made terraces there. These terraces were a work of considerable engineering, built to ensure good drainage and soil fertility while also protecting the mountain itself from erosion and landslides. However, the terraces were not perfect, as studies of the land show that there were landslides that happened during the construction of Machu Picchu. It can still be seen where the terraces were shifted by landslides and then stabilized by the Inca as they continued to build around the area”
So much beauty in Olympia, WA. I took this photo a year ago today and reflect back on my time there often.

I saw this great idea from @graywoof posting pictures of his dogs eyes.
I loved that idea and decided to post this great shot of Tobi's eyes made by Gert-Jan IJzerman.
I love looking at Tobi's eyes. Due to his hetrochromia he has two different colours in his eyes. A groovy mutation.
Jag såg denna underbara idé från @graywoof som skickade bilder av hans hunds ögon.
Jag älskade den tanken och bestämde mig för att lägga upp detta fantastiska skott av Tobi ögon från Gert-Jan IJzerman.
Jag älskar att titta på Tobi ögon. På grund av hans hetrochromia har han två olika färger i hans ögon. En groovy mutation.
“On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.” Snapped this awesome photo of Devil’s Tower in Wyoming this summer. Such a beautiful and spiritual place. *

Climb a mountain 🏔 and chill? Why yes please.... . .
After 2.8 miles one way and 1400' (426.72m) in elevation gain I need a rest. . .
I recently challenged myself to hike 52 separate trails in Colorado within a 6 month timeframe. Why 6 months you might ask. We are moving across country in May and I am trying to see as much of this state as possible. . .
Deer Mountain in #RockyMountainNationalPark is 6 of 52.There is so much beauty along the Rocky Mountains and I would like to experience as much as I can. What are some of your favorite hiking trails and/or towns in Colorado? Would love to visit some of them. So many places to see and looking forward to visiting them. . . 📸: @tripaleygoestraveling#52hikechallenge#denverphotohikers#shotonlg#estespark@lgusamobile@denverphotohikers
