Inside this unusually pretty gas station, fill up on iced tea with a splash of their pineapple-infused lemonade. Then, stock up at the deli counter and cheese case for all the makings of a perfect picnic on your way to Forsyth Park. 


Gas lanterns...the official light fixture of the French Quarter. How beautiful. Last time I was down there I don't remember seeing these. makes me want to go back.

Kings Canyon National Park, CA located in the Southern Sierra Nevadas. The Kings Canyon Scenic Byway (State 180) is one of the most stunning in California. Can get to Boyden Cavern, a cave carved in marble and is one of the most accessible in the park. Hike in the Mist Trail in June, and the view at Roads End is powerful. Grizzly Falls is reached by a short, easy trail from state 180. Note: no gas stations in park! Adjacent to Sequoia National Park. Stay at Cedar Grove Lodge, John Muir…


The above image was captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. The planetary nebula NGC 2440 lies about 4,000 light years away toward the southern constellation Puppis. In the shell of gas and dust, NGC 2440 contains one of the hottest white dwarf stars known, more than 30 times hotter than that of our own Sun. The glowing stellar pearl can be seen as the bright dot near the image center.
