    Default Desktop background (wallpaper)

    I find it nice to put a wallpaper on the computer that is from some trip I took, although sometimes I use something from "somebody else's trip". This one here is from a fall tour - a short stop for lunch at a campground now empty of campers. This wing is getting older, and higher mileage. Yet I still love travelling around on it.

    What wallpaper do you have as your desktop background?

    The wall paper on this laptop is a slide show of pictures taken while spending the summer of 2012 in Yellowstone. Some 5000 pictures of that beautiful area. Sure refreshes the great memory. The old laptop has a slide show of different Goldwings.
