Timberline Lodge Snow Pack – 1955

Today’s picture is showing off Timberline Lodge Snow Pack on Mt. Hood in Oregon. The picture dates from 1955. I can’t tell if we’re early or late in the season here.

Temple of Bacchus – 1956

The Temple of Bacchus is one of the three temples at Baalbek Ruins in what is now Syria. While this temple is larger then Greece’s Parthenon it is much less well known. This is despite the fact that it’s one of the best preserved Romans temples in the world. Baachus was the Roman God of […] more…
