    Applejack is a pony who takes a keen interest in farm buildings, so it's not surprising that she's decided to visit Worcestershire to see Knowles Mill.

    224 Rainbow Dash at the King Charles House, Worcester, UK - Loganberry

    Rainbow Dash *could* be in Worcester because she's impressed by the history of this 16th-century pub, from where the future King Charles II escaped after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651. Knowing her, though, she's probably just here to check out the cider.

The peak is reached via a strenuous hike to the top, ascending approximately 1,500 feet (460 m) up the mountain in just 2.5 miles according to the park service (although it felt easy for us). It is the tenth highest peak in Oregon.

    240 Dashie visiting Guangzhou CBD(Guangzhou, China) - RogerDaily

    241 Hiking to Iceberg Lake below Mount Adams, WA - FluttershyHiker/FluttershyIsMagic

    Mount Adams is the second tallest volcano in Washington and the third tallest in the Cascade Range at 12,286 feet. It is one of the great sentinels of the Cascades, supporting 10 major glaciers. Iceberg Lake is a small glacial lake at the hoof of Mazama Glacier. The ponies are standing on the Iceberg Lake glacial moraine, which stands at 7,895 feet high. The moraine is reached via a very rough, steep, gravelly, and unmaintained trail ascending above Hellroaring Overlook, the common stopping place for most day hikers. Beyond Iceberg Lake, the "trail" continues to Sunrise Camp, a mountaineering camp for those ascending the rugged southeast routes on Mount Adams. This hike is located in the incredibly scenic and diverse Mount Adams Recreation Area, managed by the Yakama Indian Nation. For a great hike for those looking for a spectacular introduction to the Mount Adams area, try Bird Creek Meadows Loop with a must-do sidetrip to Hellroaring Overlook (total 5.5 miles loop from Bird Lake).
    245 Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy Visit the Wildlife Learning Center - ajnrules

    Rainbow Dash had a chance to go visit the Wildlife Learning Center in the Los Angeles suburb of Sylmar, California. She had a chance to invite a friend, and she immediately thought of the one chance that would enjoy it the most, the kind and animal-loving Fluttershy. And after a long journey, they finally made it to the home of Zeus, the blind screech owl with stars in his eyes.

    261 Ponies at North Cascades National Park, Washington - FluttershyHiker/FluttershyIsMagic

    Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, Spitfire, and Fluttershy are taking in the epic view from Cascade Pass, in the incredibly rugged North Cascades National Park, in northern Washington state. The North Cascades are the most rugged mountain range in the contiguous United States (in terms of prominence and depth of valleys), and has over 300 glaciers, more than any other park in the lower 48 states (more than 4 times that of Glacier National Park). More than half the glaciers in the lower 48 states are concentrated in this mountainous wilderness region called the North Cascades. Washington state as a whole has over 500 glaciers, more than any other state outside of Alaska. This rugged mountainous region is a hiker's paradise. Over 400 miles of trails traverse through the park. This view in the photo was taken from Cascade Pass, arguably the most popular hike in the park. The views from the pass are stupendous, and only get better above the pass on the Sahalie Arm.
    262 Ponies at Mount Jefferson, Oregon - FluttershyHiker/FluttershyIsMagic

    The ponies taking in the view of Mount Jefferson, the second tallest volcano in Oregon at 10,495 feet (3,199 m) high. They are standing on the summit of Triangulation Peak, in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness. The hike in to this destination is ranked as moderate. Not to be mistaken with Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson is located to the south of Hood. It is more scenic and offers better hiking solitude than it's more famous neighbor to the north, Mount Hood. The best hike in the area is arguably Jefferson Park via Park Ridge (strenuous).
    263 Ponies at Hellroaring Overlook, Washington, with Mount Adams (12,276 ft.) in View - FluttershyHiker/FluttershyIsMagic

    The ponies are taking in the epic view of Mount Adams, Hellroaring Canyon, the Ridge of Wonders, Mazama Glacier, Hellroaring Falls, and Little Mount Adams cinder cone from the Hellroaring Overlook in the Mount Adams Recreation Area. Mount Adams is the 2nd tallest volcano in Washington and the 3rd tallest mountain in the Cascade Range. Mount Adams supports 12 named glaciers, including the Adams Glacier, one of the largest in the contiguous United States. The Mount Adams Recreation Area is an incredibly beautiful area in the southwest side of Mount Adams. Nowhere else on the mountain are diverse wildflower meadows, lakes, creeks, waterfalls, glaciers, and canyon vistas found in such close proximity. Many hiking trails in the area offer hikers unparalleled vistas and scenery. In fact, the wildflower diversity and quantity here in Bird Creek Meadows is said to be just as amazing as at the world-famous Paradise, located in Mount Rainier National Park.

    265 Mount Hotham - Laska Nova

    Hey guys :) About a month ago I rode my motorcycle around Eastern Australia .. with my plush Dash for company. So I've put up a bunch of pics from the trip in different places etc. So this link is for one of the pics in the gallery, probably not the best one either. So can I just make the gallery folder my entry?? Thanks for all that you do Love you guys -Laska

    267 Temple of Louise - Laska Nova

    268 Hotham Ride of the Century - Laska Nova

    Another pic from the trip on the bike. This was taken from the peak of Mt Hotham, the road winding its way up here was something I'll never forget. It was so sketchy is some places, especially 2 weeks before winter when I did this, I wasn't sure if I was gonna make it down the other side... Anyway, this was probably the highlight of the trip and almost certainly one of the best days of my life thus far.
    269 The GOR! - Laska Nova

    And of course, the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. One of the strangest roads I've ever ridden but definitely one of the prettiest. PS. I think having Rainbow on the bike there kept me sane throughout this trip. I was riding around the country by myself, 2 weeks before winter on a new bike. Not to mention she kept all my shit safe cos nobody would steal a bike or the bag from the rack if they thought it all belonged to a biker chick. Oh, and aww man was it awkward when I had to get gas in those backwards countryish petrol stations and I was suddenly surrounded by hillabillies. Hahaha that was fun trying to explain the rainbow pony on my superbike :P Thanks again guys for all that you do. Love Laska

    Rarity is seen under the famous station clock of Kansas City Union Station.
    284 Rarity and the Western Auto sign. - Gregory Corliss.

    Kansas City is home to one of the only remaining Western Auto signs that actually lights up every night. If you come to Kansas city, everyone tends to leave with a photo/video of the sign. Due to harsh early light, the phone decided to focus on rarity, blurring out the sign heavily but it's there.

    289 Cherry at Street Fashions USA, San Fransisco - Nikita

    On my southwestern US roadtrip, I listened to the audiobook version of "The Disaster Artist," about the making of the movie "The Room." This building was mentioned as belonging to Tommy, and being one of the locations that the movie was shot at. So Cherry and I made a four hour detour to visit it.
    290 Cherry overlooks the Grand Canyon's Horseshoe Bend, in Arizona - Nikita

    This was my first time visiting the grand canyon. Cherry got right out to the edge of the sandstone to look down at the water below. I was nervous for her, but it's all about the picture.
    291 Cherry walks on frozen Abraham Lake, Alberta - Nikita

    Winter is coming. Driving to Calgary to Grande Prairie via the Icefields Parkway in January, we made a detour out to Abraham Lake, a man-made reservoir. I wasn't sure about the ice, especially when I noticed the cracking sounds with each footstep. Cherry, however, is lighter, and walks on four legs instead of two, so she was able to walk out onto the lake. We didn't see any of the amazing methane bubble formations that I'd read about before the drive, so we'll have to try again next winter.
    292 Cherry overlooks Glen Powell Dam from her rocky outcrop - Nikita

    Nants ingonyama, bagithi Baba! In an unintentional callback to a certain scene from The Lion King, Cherry Jubilee looks out from her sandstone outcropping. The Glen Powell Dam is in the background, upstream on the Colorado river that winds though the canyon far below.
    293 Cherry Jubilee salivates in the salty Death Valley - Nikita

    All of the "rocks" in this vast valley are actually large salt crystals. As such, it was difficult convincing Cherry Jubilee to leave what must have initially seemed like her own personal slice of heaven. But the area is called Death Valley for a reason—it was hot! We quickly retreated to the jug of water and life-saving air conditioning that we had left behind in the car. Though I had to agree with Cherry, that salt was mighty tasty. (Devil's Golf Course, Death Valley, California)
    294 Dashie at San Ysidro Church - QuilllStroke

    Hello EQD! As a person from New Mexico, I decided to take a quick snapshot of Dashie in front of historic San Ysidro Church. Built in 1868, this church is located in the heart of Corrales, a rural village located along the Rio Grande Valley. Even though it is no longer considered a place of worship, the parish hosts festivals, weddings, and celebrations every year. Ponies are even here in Corrales too, Seth! Thanks! @QuillStroke
    299 Sunset Shimmer and Applejack in "la campiña" Sabandia - Arequipa - Jasson
