I couldn’t visit New York City without seeing the new One World Trade Center, which opened in October 2014.   Including the spire, the building is the tallest in the Western hemisphere and the sixth tallest in the world at 1,776 feet (a reference to the year the United States signed the Declaration of Independence). The glassed-in One World Observatory on floors 100-102 offers magnificent views of Manhattan, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in the distance. The See Forever Observatory opened on May 29, 2015, and the smooth elevator ride up takes only 60 seconds. Info on visiting is at: https://oneworldobservatory.com/

Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
