On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
– note – this is the first auto-form-post –
Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. <- make a link, etc. -> You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
Today, pictures from valued commenter Wag.
Last week my family and I went camping in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. We had a fantastic trip, claimed to 14,000 foot peaks, and had fun visiting the old mining town of Creede. The wildflowers, particularly in a place called American Basin, were the best I’ve ever seen in my 55 years of living in Colorado.

Thank you so much Wag, do send us more when you can.
Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.
One again, to submit pictures: Use the Form <- make a link, etc. -> or Send an Email
— Clearly, there are some formatting and text issues to solve, but overall, we’re in a good place.
Thanks Wag – I so wish I was wandering that scenery right now – I cannot tell you how much I love that part of Colorado. I only spent 9 years living there, but the day I arrived, I felt a deep “what took you so long?”, and it’s been a deep love since. If I could, I’d move to the Lake City area in a heartbeat, as long as I had high speed internet and reasonable access to a city/good health care (Grand Junction suffices). Amazon delivers, and, TBH, living around such natural majesty is a grand way to spend your days on this earth. You’re blessed to have lived in Colorado for 55 years!
