You must own the image and have taken it yourself. Do not submit images taken by others even if it's a friend that is allowing you to use it.

From these images I may select ones for use as header images with your permission first.

It's quartzite. There was an army camp at the base of the rocks during WWII and they trained troops in rock climbing there. It's a popular spot for rock climbers now. There's a trail up the front side that takes you to an overlook on the left end of the rocks.

My "fondest" memory of Massachusetts is driving through downtown Boston a number of years ago. Good grief! :eek2: Are people required to have a driver's license to drive there? I couldn't wait to get back to my 3 stop light county.

John was a little confused on his geography, but he got the feeling right.

Well our governor finds it OK practice to issue licenses to illegal immigrants ... who then drive cocked & kill people .... then the governor blames drinking - NOT the illegal immigrant part. This state is so back-asswards you can't even imagine ... :|
