Las Rocas Beach

Another nice sunset on Palenque. At the time of my first visit there was nothing here at all and we had to take a 25 minute boat ride back to the mainland in the dark. Now tucked just inside the jungle is a relaxing beach bar and restaurant where you can watch the sunset every day in comfort.

Center of the Universe

I had been up to this cool white pass in Zion years ago, and found out that more recently a park employee, like i used to be, had also discovered it and told people it was like the "center of the universe". I agree as far as it seems to be another of those areas with a science fiction feel to it. It made me think of distant futures.

Nabesna Mid Glacial Lake

This lake is a new phenomenon that was only 2 summers old by the time i came across it. I think what is happening is that the downward side of the lake is a small ridge and the glacier has lost enough mass that it can no longer ride over the top of it, halting it's forward movement. But, there could also be an ice dam somewhere in the area.
