    Does the description of the town as Baroque indicate that it originated in the same time period of Baroque music? Just curious. While I am not an avid fan of heavier classical numbers, I do enjoy a good deal of the lighter Baroque music. Beautiful town.

    I guess the town is much older, but that a lot of buildings have been erected or modernised in the 16th century. Just like in the music, baroque architecture is "visually explosive" for lack of a better term ;)

    Lovely structure. Is the small lake around it meant to be defensive or decorative?

    Given that it was built in the 17th century, I guess it was mainly decorative. It was built for Cornelis Tromp, son of admiral Maarten Harpertszoon Tromp, 17th century commander of the Dutch fleet.

    Some pictures from my vacation to Yellowstone National Park. This place is amazing.

    This is Grand Prismatic Springs.

    This is a pool at the West Thumb Geyser Basin. Beautiful clear blue water and very hot.

    This is the Yellowstone River Falls. The picture can't do it justice. A marvelous site.

    If you ever get a chance to go to Yellowstone National Park, do it.

    My wife and I encountered this lady while vacationing in Southwestern Utah, USA. It is not an unusual encounter since Utah has "open range" in many areas. It was pretty cool. Her look was, "What are you doing on my road?"

    Speaking of animals and SW Utah, did you pass by the town of Kanab, where Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is?
