Some travelers are very cautious about what they pack. Others not so much… Three inert blocks of explosives were detected in a traveler’s carry-on bag at the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP). This wasn’t a test. It was a military instructor who stated that he forgot they were in his bag. Instructors needing to travel with inert explosives training aids should plan ahead and find another way to transport their training aids. They are prohibited in both checked and carry-on bags. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays because the explosives detection professionals must resolve the alarm to determine the level of threat. Even if they are novelty items, you cannot bring them on a plane.

This high-speed night shot shows off the stunning West Building of the National Gallery of Art. The Gallery and its gorgeous Sculpture Garden (which features an ice rink in the winter time) are located on Constitution Avenue NW between 3rd and 9th Streets NW. Between the East and West Buildings, the museum’s collection features roughly 141,000 paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and forms of new media that stretch all the way back to the Middle Ages. 📷 : @sevendayweekender #MyDCcool

Photo @tylermetcalfe | A traveling cyclist rides towards the towering mountains of Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming. Last year I embarked on a cross-country bike ride from the headquarters of @natgeo in Washington, D.C. to the shores of Olympic National Park in Washington State. The trip took me through ten states, four national parks, and 4290 miles over the course of 107 days. Check out the feature “American Bike Project” at natgeo.com for more.
