Snaking River Canyon: Travel Photo Contest Friday 25

Update: The winner is Dawn…who guessed Fish River Canyon in Namibia, the second largest canyon in the world (after the Grand Canyon)! Thanks again to Dave and his truly professional travel photo site.  Here’s what he had to say about Fish River Canyon: “Fish River Canyon was an out of the way stop on our epic cycling journey from Cairo to Cape Town. We had been cycling for almost 4 months at this point and instead of keeping to the smooth paved roads all the way to the finish, the race directors decided to take us off road one more time to Fish River Canyon.

Impossibly Blue Tropical River: Travel Photo Contest Friday 20

Update: The winner is Brett! The picture was taken in In Kanchanaburi, Thailand at Erwan National park and waterfall of the same name. Just down the street from where the Bridge of the River Kwai story was based, this beautiful river and waterfall system is full of little fish who eat away at your dead skin. Strange feeling but definitely worth the trip. The bonus is that you’ll likely be one of the few foreign tourist there as most will be down at the beaches of the southern coast. Brett’s prize is a link to his very cool Travel and Foodie blog:  Our Tasty Travels. Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday.
