🥇 Sand Dunes and Garden of the Gods in Colorado. by @kohsamui99

Our visit to Colorado was really turning into a amazing adventure we had already been to Red Rocks Amphitheater the Rocky Mountain National Park and after spending a couple nights at Rocky Mountain National Park doing a bit of hiking we then decided to move on to see the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado. Leaving our cabin that early morning it took just over 4 hours to reach the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado from Rocky Mountain National Park.

🥈 Traveling into a secret war zone: Burma by @ricko66

I live in Thailand for the last 20 years and I still in love with the country, the people, the culture and it is nothing less than magical times. Living here made me meet many people some good, some bad, some strange like everywhere in the world but without ever trying to meet important people I have crossed the road of quite a few very important ones from stars, ministers, high police and army officials, very famous monk. Life is strange and you never know what's will come next. I am an open person and if there is mutual respect I can be friend with whoever.

🥉 Chuuk Lagoon Part 8 some plane wrecks by @diveratt

Apart from the big wrecks in Chuuk Lagoon that we will come back to later, there are a number of airplane wrecks that you can dive to. I do really enjoy diving aircraft, they are nice and compact so you can spend a bit of time exploring every inch. The estimate is that the Americans shot down or destroyed on the ground over 200 hundred Japanese aircraft in the two days of operation Hailstone so there are bound to be a few.
