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.
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. 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!
So Tom Petty died twice, as it were. I like to think that he saw coverage of the horror in Las Vegas and couldn’t take it, having just concluded – successfully! – his final round-up tour. It just took him a while longer to shake loose this mortal coil.
I wish he was still with us, for his music, but also for him – I am a big, huge fan of his XM (known as SiriusXM) Radio program “Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure”. It’s some of the best stuff you’ll ever hear, and you’ll have lots of laughs learning about some great American (and British! and other!) amazing music. His knowledge, passion, oddity, heartiness, skill, cockiness, and subtle sensitivity were inspirational.
His radio show offers such a nice alternative to commercial crap it makes you weep, even more so knowing that he won’t be back to Rick’s Airport Recordings, having once again brought some rare recordings from his personal collection to provide – as he said, “the best rock, rhythm and blues”. It is an education, and I recommend it highly.
I just know Tom would wish we’d all roll some great tunes, likely featuring some of the great Wilson Picket:
And special bonus track from The Who, a band he often played. It wasn’t all American music!
Have a great weekend, everybody, here’s hoping it’s calm and without substantial horror.
Today, pictures from valued commenter WereBear.
Spent time at the lake with family. Gorgeous morning, when I timed the mist just right. Adirondack mountains, Labor Day weekend.
Cold evenings make the mists appear.
Sun just coming up over the mountain range in the distance.
Thank you so much WereBear, 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.
