Well, much more tropical... but here is video from "Alcatrazes archipelago", south-east Brazil, that I recorded last summer.
It's a closed archipelago, 30 miles from the coast, only the Navy is authorized to navigate around it.
No tourism, no fishing... and no beaches as well, only rocks reaching as high as 1150 ft
It is part of the last 7% of the brazilian Atlantic rain forest...

Thiago,
 
what an amazing place.  Must Google Earth that place.  Thank you.

Those Frigate birds are astounding.

this is a landing zone for some "what I did on summer vacation" stoke.

Thiago, nice video.

I know I buried your Keys somewhere around here daddy!

Look for anything shiny, I still can't find my keys
After climbing 268 steps up and 268 steps back bown, still no luck.
But the view of Hatteras Island is a site to see.
Boys try digging over there!
Colsen I said DIG, not bury your brother
After a climb up Jockey's Ridge, we spot a prime location to dig em up
The largest natural sand dume on the East Coast
Daddy, Daddy, I found them!!!!!
We made it back just in time for the boys to enjoy the evening with their friends.
And watch a wonderful sunset.

Tropical climate, but the water was cool...

PS: How do I rotate the pictures?

"PS: How do I rotate the pictures?"

Thiago, I think you have to rotate the photo in some sort of photo editor before you upload them.  I don't think there's anything in the EpicSki photo loader that allows you to edit them after they're posted.

I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of rotating the two that obviously needed it.

Great photos, by the way.  I have a wonderful Brazilian family as regular ski school clients and they keep inviting my wife and I to visit.  I haven't done it yet and your photos reminded me that we need to get that scheduled.

Thanks for rotating the pictures Bob

You definitely should come to Brazil.
Unfortunately we don't get snow, but we do have lots of diferent enviroments and landscapes.

When you schedule your trip, let me know.

Thanks, Thiago.  I definitely will.

Congratulations on 2016!

I participated (as a volunteer) in the 2002 Winter Olympics and the experience is just amazing.  Brazil will be an outstanding host for the Summer O's.

 Summer treated me well on many fronts, even though the weather was marginal and we never really experienced great summer weather.
Here are a few pics from the Mitten.
Lake Michigan/Frankfort lighthouse.





Alpine slide with friends at Crystal Mt,


Walked the Mackinaw Bridge with my sisters



Went mt biking a lot and adopted a puppy that is going to turn out to be a great riding buddy.



Mostly, and probably the thing I take for granted far too much.....
I witnessed amazing sunrises from my kitchen window...

crasher bee
"crasher bee" with my daughter, taken June 2009, Big Talbot SP near Jacksonville, FL.


My wife lays flowers on grave of her father.  Her brother and mother watch. Taken on her father's first birthday since his passing.  July 2009 at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia. I live about 5 miles from here.  It's an amazing, sacred, historic place to visit.  My mom's buried here too..

BTW, great shots by the other posters.
