Picturing Palm Trees

If winter has set in where you are, this might seem like fantasy island. I have no idea where this might be. It looks like ship port, or perhaps an airport, or…. can you identify the place?

I know it’s not where I live, which is Colorado’s Front Range, just slightly higher in elevation than Denver. But it’s a Nordic Walking fantasy that I don’t need to indulge in right now. With the exception of one snowfall last month at this elevation, it’s still shirtsleeve warm during the day –perfect Nordic Walking weather. But the mountains are blanketed with snow, early-season conditions are great, and it’s only a matter of time before we see snow here too. I love the snow and the cold (and the fact that my poles have snap-on baskets for snowshoeing) and perhaps you do too. Or perhaps you’re in a part of the contintinent where winter has settled in or where the rain has been relentless. If you need a little light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel spirit-lifter, take a look at this Exel photo (used here with permission) at a quartet of Nordic Walkers striding among the palms.
