A highlight from my recent backpacking trip along the Western Uplands Trail in Algonquin Provincial Park. Sunset from one of the campsites on South Pincher Lake, two days into the backcountry.

A drying net and a bicycle rest near the boats on a fishing beach South of Puntarenas.
The cloud-covered cone of Arenal volcano recedes as we cross Lake Arenal on the ferry to Monteverde.
Another moment, and a towering cloud, in the sunset from Sankaber camp, in the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.
Another sunset from the hill above Sankaber camp, Simien Mountains National Park.

Sunset illuminates the misty ranges of Simien Mountains National park, from the hill above Sankaber camp.

As we were driving along the China Road (between Bahir Dar and Woldia), we passed a spring and then turned to find this juxtaposition of farmed land, homes, and peaks in clouds. It was a welcome respite from the first part of the drive, which had been relentlessly clear and sunny.
A farmstead in the rural village of Zigroa, outside of Mekane Eyesus (Iste) in South Gonder. The crop in the front is tef, the national staple crop of the highlands, with maize in the background. Eucaluptus, an introduced species, is the most common type of tree seen in Ethiopia, where it is used as a building supply, for firewood, shade and windbreaks.
