This museum is based in Philadelphia and has a rare collection of oddities and monstrous medical mysteries. The museum has a old stately home feel to it, high ceilings and dark wood cabinets containing jars of preserved human kidneys and livers. In amongst all this finery are a the Hyrtl Skull Collection, a nine-foot-long human colon, the Soap Lady and a two-headed baby.
"Rainforest Canyon." Taken in Oneonta Gorge, Oregon. Apparently it's just a few miles east of Multnomah Falls on the historic highway. The hike is great for all ages that can walk and it's about a half mile, but straight up a river and has a cool log jam. The canyon only gets about an hour of daylight to the floor, so if you want any warmth, start the hike at 11:45-12:15ish. There's a giant waterfall at the end, with a pool you can swim in.
"Taken at Kjosfossen Waterfall on the train journey from Myrdal to Flåm, Norway. We stopped for five minutes to admire and take photos of this beautiful waterfall when, suddenly, Norwegian folk music started, playing from somewhere, and this young woman just appeared and danced for us. It was all a bit surreal!"
