Crowsnest Pass:

- Home to a world famous rockslide that crushed the original mining town of Frank and killed several people in 1903. The highway now runs through the rock debris.


- A famous massive mining disaster took place here as well killing several more people.
- Was once a large center for bootlegging in the early 1900s.

Umm, that's about all.

Saratoga, California. Probably the most expensive place to live in the West Coast, if not the US. My family isn't that rich though...we live on the edge of Saratoga (aka Wannabe Saratoga). Umm...Steve Jobs lives maybe 10-15 minutes away. Yeah...I think that's all.

Um,
Kangaroos jumping around all the freak'n place, its busy jeez,
Steve(croc hunter) has to chase down the crocs that get in our pools over here, its a crazy house(country) i tells ya o.o

On the not-stupid-note

unique-ish where i live~

Our beaches they are bloody awesome
Our Wildlife, Animals, etc
Our Trams ^_^

Something that is unique but not a good thing is theres a place(up near the bushy-ish etc area round here) is the roads and the hills they are terrible to travle up and down from its like a hill HUGE( Those who are playing at home lol *The Great Ocean Road* is the name) and is *terrible* when your in the car with a fast driver :-( :\ gah
Imagine looking out the window and seeing nothing but sea and more sea while going fast around SHARP, bends etc :\
But when you drop down in speed its ok and pretty much straight, looking out the window can then be beautiful as i said our awesome beaches ^_^
