Sights and Scenes from places on Earth
I am lucky enough to say that Great Sitkin volcano in the Aleutian islands is an incredible and impressive view from the site that was the
Naval Security Group compound on Adak.
While stationed there, we would realize that only
20-odd miles of ocean separated us from the base--and Sitkin.
It was a pretty strong reminder of how short and fragile
our existence can be on this planet.
The huge redwoods of Humboldt County in the Pacific Northwest are another treasure in my memory.
That's a wildflower field overlooking the Grand Teton range in Wyoming, a view of eastern Washington state,
and a leafy sea dragon, a member of the seahorse family.
