  •  Glencoe (4+ / 0-)

    I visited a friend in Scotland a number of years ago and completely fell in love with it.  I'm a frequent visitor; in fact I'm here now in East Lothian, still a bit jet-lagged.

    I have a pic of me at that same border crossing.  A few miles up the road, there is a coastal formation called Siccars Point, where James Hutton studied the rocks in 1788 and realized the earth was more than 6000 years old, in spite of what the vicar said. He's considered the father of geology, and that's where it all started.

    But my favorite place is the beautiful Glencoe valley.  It is just awesome, especially in a good rainstorm, when the hills sparkle from thousands of little waterfalls.  And if you're lucky, you get a magnificent rainbow you can reach out and touch.  

    I'm still mad about Nixon.
