  1. Hi Jeff,

    The amazing paths category has captivated me. I am curious to know where those paths are located. It would be helpful if there was a footnote or some description mentioning the place name and other geographical notes.

    Truly, you have a really great collection of photos!

    Thank you for sharing them.

    Sincerely Alnoor

  2. beautiful – love the green path and the bluebell path fantastic perception and vision thank you

  3. Thanks for sharing. Any idea where 05 is?

  4. Hi Joe. I did a bit of Googling and couldn’t come up with anything.

  5. Jeff, I did too, and found the same paths on 4 web sites. Tried various clues to get to the tree bridge but did not have any luck. I think I have seen 5 of the paths before, and I would bet 5, maybe 6 are from china. One reply on the Jay in Ames site credits some of them in Germany.

  6. Please tell me where each pictue is located. I am going nuts trying to figure it out.

  7. Thanks BillBoe! I’ve updated the image captions for the two that you found. Keep ’em coming.

  8. Lombard Street in San Francisco is numbered 004 on my list.

  9. the steam train is in South Africa, Garden route in a place called George alas this part is no longer running, train is Outeniqua Choo-Choo Steam Train

  10. No.6, I’m 80% sure that this photo is from the blizzards that fell on Austria last week.

  11. 14 is in argentina, iguazu falls

  12. Thanks a ton for the information everyone. I’ve updated the image captions appropriately.

    *Sky, I did a bunch of searching to verify the locations and I discovered that #14 is actually the boardwalk at Plitvice National Park in Croatia.

    *Rae, I don’t think the snow image was from anything so recent. These have been floating around the internet for a while now.

  13. Beautiful pic’s you should make Coffee Table book if you haven’t love them . Thank You Vernita

  14. Thanks Vernita, however, these aren’t my personal images. They’ve been floating around the internet for a while now and have popped up on several different sites. I got them in an email from my aunt.

  15. Number 10 has to be Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, Holland. Just received a TravelSmith catalog with a very similar image on the front cover.

  16. Jeff, I am completely spellbound by the Amazing Paths that you posted. I have not traveled out of the US so have no idea where these are. Could you direct me to a site so that I could identify them? (It would REALLY be nice of you since today is my birthday!)

  17. Jeff,

    That shot in San Francisco is on California St, not Lombard. In an Amazing Paths email I just received from a friend a Lombard St shot was also included.


  18. Annie sent us the “paths” too….wondering where they were, stumbled upon your website, thanks – Have a wonderful New Year! “Cousins” Col and Bob

  19. Found this link as well claiming Hungary for #2

  20. Wow, thanks for everyone’s help! Keep searching.

  21. Jeff, 08 is Tianmen Mountain in Hunan Province, China. 12 could be the road to it but probably not. You can see the mountain at

  22. #13 is South Africa

  23. Here’s the Tianmen Mountain website:

    Shows the road and the Ladder to Heaven.

  24. I beleive number 7 is the walkway out to Point Reyes light house, just north of San Francisco. It is hard to tell from the fog. I will try to find my photos I took there and share them with you.

  25. Pretty sure number two, with the houses on the water, is in Tyre, Lebanon

  26. #6 might be access road into the lodge at Crater Lake in Oregon. I’ve been there in May and the snow was almost this high. however, the car in the foreground appears to be on the left side of the road–so maybe not in the US. Just a guess.

  27. I love your perspective on pathways! Very Cool!

  28. The last photo, #14 is Plitvice Lakes in Croatia.

  29. #6 is in Japan, not sure of the exact location though.

  30. And #7 is the Ha’iku Stairs, Oahu, Hawaii.

  31. I agree #6 looks just like the road to Crater Lake in 1992.

  32. #7 is the Ha’iku Stairs, Oahu, Hawaii (also known as the Stairway to Heaven)
    #8 is Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, in northwestern Hunan Province, China.
    #9 is Don’t look down! Xihai Grand Canyon, Mount Huangshan, China
    #12 is Tian Men Shan Road in China

  33. Yeah, number 2 appear like Bokod, Hungary

  34. Number 11 I don’t know where it is, but looks like a mustard plantation.

  35. #12 looks very much like photos of Col de Turini in France – here:

  36. According to a recent article on Yahoo, the stairway leading to the hole cut through the mountain is Heaven’s Gate Mountain, Zhangjiajie City, China

  37. #12 is Hunan, China
