Spied: Toyota Hilux/Bimobil Camper - An uber-rare sighting around here, a right-hand drive diesel Toyota Hilux (Tacoma in the US, the Hilux in the rest of the world) with a German made Bimobil camper, or caravan body. It’s owned by an older couple from Germany, who had shipped it over to the states and they were touring North & Central America for 12 months. We crossed paths in the Wyoming mountains last summer and had a nice visit about their travels. I’m not sure which I envied more, having a year to spend on the road, or their sweet overland rig.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.Nelson Mandela (via fdny)

You may have seen this photograph (or one like it) floating around your social media feeds in the last week.
It’s the Grand Canyon filled with fog.
Gorgeous. Stunning. All the adjectives we use to describe things like space photos. They make sense here.
But is it real?
It certainly looked to be good to true to my eye.
But lo and behold, these images are real, tweeted out by the National Parks Service’s Grand Canyon team itself. I love when there is a simple answer to a viral photo question.
