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.
On the Road will continue, but it will be forever Alain’s.
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!
Today – with more Poco!
So, these are older submissions that were stuck. I am freeing them and will do more tomorrow. Have a great day everyone!
First uptrav, a picture from valued commenter Lee.
This is our first grand-pet. Our daughter adopted this little guy from a Cat Cafe in her college town. His name is Noodles.
Noodles with a smile.

Here he is enjoying her company as she studies for finals.
Thank you so much Lee, do send us more when you can.
Next, a picture from valued commenter Dog Mom (sorry about the delay in publishing – this was a week or so after my mom’s funeral and I was still in a daze)
I mostly lurk, sometimes I get a comment in – usually late to the game on any given post. I’m in Rochester, NY and wondering if we can get a meetup organized – or even a Western New York meetup.
Turkeys in the Mist
Taken on 2017-12-05
just a little south of Rochester, NY
About 20 turkeys and a couple of deer foraging their way through the yard. Today they would be turkeys in the snow
Thank you so much Dog Mom, do send us more when you can.
Finally, from quinerly, who is on this trip already and will soon submit more pics.
Hey Alain! Poco and I are so glad you are back! We spent Saturday planning our yearly trip to NM. New route and intense map studying knocked Poco out. When we leave St. Louis our first stop is Lawton, OK, then through Hobbs, NM for 3 nights in the Carlsbad/Guadalupe Mountains NP areas. From there, to Alamogordo and White Sands for a night and then to the the Las Cruces area for 3 nights. Finally, one night in Truth or Consequences before we hit Bernalillo/Albuquerque/Santa Fe areas for a month.
This picture was taken in Poco….. the ex street dog’s favorite spot….his “mom’s” bed on Saturday, 12/9/2017. It was cold in St. Louis today. He is thankful to be off the mean streets. Poco would sure love if any fellow travelers have restaurant/off the beaten path suggestions. His bandanas and winter coat are packed for a January 17 launch.
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.
