Captain Jack Swigert at the Capitol

I learned a lot of interesting things during our tour of the US Capitol. I did not know that each state was allowed to have two sculptures inside the Capitol. There is one area that is full of sculptues and others are scattered through the magnificent building. I partuclary liked this one that stands guard in the Capitol Visitor Center.

This is Jack Swigert who was a native of Colorado. He was an American test pilot, mechanical and aerospace engineer, United States Air Force pilot, and NASA astronaut. He is one of the 24 people who have flown to the Moon. I like the reflection of the visitor center in his visor.

Bavaria–The Alps

I live on a mountain. I have also traveled a lot through different mountain ranges in Colorado,California,Utah,New Mexico,Maine,Canada,Pennsylvania,North Carolina etc. It is amazing how different mountains can look and yet so similar at the same time. A mountain in Pennyslvania and one in Tennessee can look very much alike but you wouldn’t confuse them with the Rockies.

These are the Alps in Germany near the Austrian border. I don’t think these look like any other mountains I have seen but can’t say what it is that makes them look so different. I have never been to the Canadian but this doesn’t look like Colorado to me.
