Grizzly 's smells of pepper and has bells in it.

It's a wonderful image norts, I'd love to do one of those epic US hikes. Unfortunately not a lot of players in this version of the game, it can be very slow and needs some patience. The only things I've seen on the CDT were trailheads of Berthoud and Loveland passes in Colorado, but that was briefly trudging through snow in a near whiteout on a bus trip. Some inventive googling suggests Morning Eagle Falls and Piegan Pass.

Yes eggs, along the Hooker Valley towards Stocking Stream Shelter, en route to the lake and glacier terminus.

Not quite right. This is a continuation of what starts there but you are looking at the ocean here, and the dusty hollow is much less spectacular than further inland.
The photo is taken from a quaint bridge, built specifically to become a bit of a tourist attraction.

Loved the Emerald Isle.
The Cliffs of Moher - and the small peninsula below is the only part in the area protected enough for Puffins to breed.
I believe Norts is up.
