Hi Thomas & list
Wow that makes 2 strong candidates for falls this year.
Thanks for the information. I added it to my new falls page....just
below West Texas. I also included a neat link to a Google maps of the
town of Maribo on the island of Lolland, Denmark. If anyone has any
better pictures or has talked to Thomas Grau about this I would love
any additional details.
