 +====== Path Images ======
  
 +I get lots of emails from well-meaning people to other "John Jolly"​s throughout the world. There is one person in the UK in particular that sends me lots of messages. I've told them I'm not the right John Jolly, but they haven'​t gotten the hint, yet.
 +
 +Nonetheless,​ today I got a very interesting set of pictures from them, and I really want to share these. The text of the message means less to me than the actual pictures themselves. I am posting the text of the message anyway for completeness.
 +
 +If you can better identify any of these images, please email me.
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage01.jpg|}}
 +
 +Clearly San Francisco. A little time and I probably could even identify the street
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage02.jpg|}}
 +
 +Probably a lake in Europe. I can't imagine the path existing near an ocean.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage03.jpg|}}
 +
 +Rather precarious. I'm pretty sure Lisa would have a heart-attack on this road.
 +
 +----

 +
 +Lombard Street, San Francisco
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage05.jpg|}}
 +
 +Clearly engineered by the Path of Least Resistance Construction Company.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage06.jpg|}}
 +
 +I would like to find myself reading a book along this train track. Simply peaceful.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage07.jpg|}}
 +
 +I really want to know where to find this place. I would make the trip just to walk it.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage08.jpg|}}
 +
 +Looks like a long drive to me. No idea where this could be.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage09.jpg|}}
 +
 +European castle, I just have no idea where.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage10.jpg|}}
 +
 +Judging from the fact they are driving on the wrong side of the road, I'm going to guess New Zealand.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage11.jpg|}}
 +
 +This might be the mountain monastery used in the new Karate Kid movie - the place with all the locks.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage12.jpg|}}
 +
 +Utah doesn'​t have a hole-in-the-rock,​ this place does. I wish I knew where this was.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage13.jpg|}}
 +
 +Wonderfully precarious. I'm pretty sure this is somewhere in China.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage14.jpg|}}
 +
 +Seems like a rather fun roller-coaster road to me.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage15.jpg|}}
 +
 +Less of an actual path, and more of a beautiful field of bluebells. Again, I would love to be caught reading a book here.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage16.jpg|}}
 +
 +A farm road - somewhere. I rather like the contrast of colors on either side of the road.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage17.jpg|}}
 +
 +This is the kind of road created to keep out the Visigoths.
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage18.jpg|}}
 +
 +Beautiful for the train passengers - rather an eyesore for beachcombers. What's this bridge doing in the middle of my pristine beach?!?
 +
 +----
 +
 +{{:​jjolly:​misc:​images:​pathimage19.jpg|}}
 +
 +Forget about finding me reading a book here, I want to live next to this. The water is simply inviting.
 +
 +----
 +
 +The message I received contained the following text.
 +
 +  May the path your life
 +  takes in the next year
 +  lead you to fun and
 +  adventure, love and
 +  peace.
 +  Have a Safe, Healthy and
 +  Happy New Year!
