On the Road and In Your Backyard

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, pictures from valued commenter Bill.

This was a month ago or so, but we got weather last night so let’s pretend it’s more recent. Driving out of Wilkes-Barre, came to the top of the ridge, and every tree was ice-coated, all the way to the other side of the valley. Seemed to be isolated to that particular spot, as I didn’t see any more as I made my way south to Jim Thorpe. Bitterly cold that day, so I imagine the ice stuck around for a few days.

Do Not Pass

Good for me, pulling over like a responsible person to snap photos.

Didn’t pull over for this one. SAD!


Thank you so much Bill, 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.

    Little is more beautiful than a world covered in diamonds, but this is a view I very much prefer from the safety of the inside of my home.

    @debbie: @OzarkHillbilly: @MomSense: the thing I miss about my house in Michigan, walking out into the surrounding fields after an ice storm and enjoying the beauty, especially when the sun glinted off the crystals before it melted them.

    @rikyrah: You are very kind, my thanks. I suspect you have me confused with Bill in Glendale, CA, whose pictures do in fact rock. I think it’s because he gets out of his car to take them.

    @rikyrah: Ditto. I’m losing hope of seeing a Poco photo from this year’s excursion. If it’s because he’s too busy living the good life, I can understand.
