AOL Travel Library Winners

by Linda Walcroft

Back when AOL was still in a phase of providing features to paying members, they had a weekly Travel Library photo contest . These images were some of my weekly winners. I earned credits toward my monthly dial-up fee. (Yes, this was over a decade ago.)

They have been reduced in size for display here and a border added.


Clingmans Dome   Washington Monument   Mona Impersonator   Grand Canyon   20 Minute Cliff   Harpers Ferry   View with azalea   Mabry Mill   Eiffel Tower   Driftwood tree   Jackson Lake, WY  


About the places:
  1. Clingman's Dome is the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. A steep trail leads to this lookout tower.
  2. The Washington Monument is shown from across the Potomac River.
  3. A street performer in Paris impersonates the Mona Lisa.
  4. Marie is gazing over the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
  5. This view from the Blue Ridge Parkway is called Twenty Minute Cliff.
  6. Harper's Ferry, West Virginia can be clearly viewed from Maryland Heights - if you don't mind a steep hike.
  7. Wild azaleas bloom in the springtime in Virginia. This view is looking east from Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park.
  8. Mabry Mill in a light rain, Blue Ridge Parkway.
  9. The Eiffel Tower, Paris, seen from the Musee des Hommes.
  10. A tree became driftwood on the beach near Charleston, SC.
  11. The Grand Tetons from Lake Jackson, WY, were partially obscured by clouds. The photo is on color film, but the haze from a lifting rain gave the image a monochromatic hue. This picture was taken with a disposable panorama camera.
