The Lure of Honeycombs' License Plates and South Dakota


ANIMAL_ACTIVISIT_SIGN.jpg

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the image of Mount Rushmore on the license plate of South Dakota. When I was an adult (2000), I finally made it to this awesome state. My images are from 2000 and 2002, but hopefully, 2008 will be another chance to visit this great state on the high plains.

Craters of the Moon Idaho: A Journey into the Earth


craters_of_the_moon_me.jpg

In 2002, I drove out west, and I stopped at the really cool named Craters of the Earth. The rocks were fun to play around on, but it was like many things in the great empty west - EMPTY. That said, the natural caves that were buried beneath the debris of geology's forces were really cool.

Going Out West...

Hopefully, just like Tom Waits sings, I'll look good without a shirt on when I'm hiking the canyons and deserts of all things in the South West and great void between the Rockies and the Sierras.

No One Can Dream a Place Like California


MUIR_KAT.jpg

The coast, the desert, the mountains, the cities, the stinky-footed hippies and the anti-2nd amm. behavior of those San Franciscans (although they do have a cool city otherwise). Yep - in the words of Jay Farrar, "no one can dream a place like California..."

The American World of Monuments and Granite on the Potomac: Washington DC


washington_DC_birthday_weekend_pictures_12.jpg

Mount Vernon - America's "First" President's Home

Ok, so it's not like Jefferson's home, but it's still nice - save the LONG waits to get into the mansion. And yes, it's true that Washington wasn't really a man of words (we can't all be Jefferson), but it is American history and it has a great view of the Potomac and a cool weathervane on top!

Washington Crossing Pennsylvania: A Re-enactment for Kicking Hessian Ass


washington_crossing_the_delaware_15.jpg

In 1776, General George changed everything by saying to Hell with decorum as he launched an attack on the Hessian garrison at Trenton by taking his men over the Delaware River. http://www.ushistory.org/washingtoncrossing/ Taking men that were pretty much down and out to the point that some of them didn't even have boots and making Ten Crucial Days work for the American revolutionary cause, George ensured his leadership would drive America to a new place in the world. These are pictures of the Christmas re-enactment of said daring venture.

The Gorge at Conkle's Hollow


conkles_hollow_24.jpg

One of the many joys of Hocking Hills Ohio (like nothing else in Ohio). The gorge is 1/2 mile walk in on flat ground, but it's sweet with the walls and the natural images - even if it's a paved path until you get to the end. Next time I go back, I'm going for the 2.5 mile rim walk, which is supposed to be incredible.

Hocking Hills Rock House: A Little Bit of Mesa Verde in Ohio

One of the many joys of Hocking Hills Ohio (like nothing else in Ohio). If it wasn't for the green, I'd think I was at Mesa Verde. My photos in the cave are a little dark, but if you go there at the right time, you can get the light shining in for fantastic shots. http://www.hockinghills.com/parks/p_rock.htm They're there for the taking - if you get there at the right time.

The Starting Point for Hocking Hills: Old Man's Cave


old_mans_cave_21.jpg

One of the many joys of Hocking Hills Ohio (like nothing else in Ohio) - if you don't have to deal with the crowds. There were way too many people there when I went. After seeing this and the dried up waterfalls, I had to say that nature was beautiful, but most people need to stay in the cities - especially if they bring their annoying kids who just clog up the trails.

Pictures that Almost Weren't: Mad River Kayaking Trip


mad_river_kayaking_trip_201617.JPG

The Mad River was a learning experience until I went in the river going down a tiny waterfall. Then, it sucked because I thought I lost my $250 waterproof camera. Fortunately, my brother in law found it in the front of my kayak when they recovered it. After that, it was a relaxing ride down a swift current.

Conasauga Falls - As the Thunder Roars, the Hike Continues


conasauga_falls_trail_9.jpg

Located in the Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee, this sweet 30 foot or so set of blocks creates a fair bit of drops from one level to the next. It's not a long trail (less than 2 miles round trip), and it's very manicured, though at the end, it gets a little rougher with debris. Nevertheless, there are stairs to the end, so that makes up for it. I actually ran down the beginning part of the trail and didn't worry about tripping. Coming up wasn't bad, but it is a little bit of elevation. The thunder that I heard while walking down sounded very prolonged and close to where I was. In fact, I thought the angels would bowl me over at some points.

With a Rebel Yell, it's going to take a little longer than we thought - Manassas


manassas_8.jpg

Whether you call it Bull Run or Manassas, it's definitely a powerful moment in American history. As the crowds watched and the politicians assassinated the careers of anyone who dared to say that the Civil War would last longer than a modern baseball season, the first shots were fired just south of DC. When it was over, the North was defeated and running back to their homes in the North and the generals were training men to continue a 4-year bloodbath across the hills, valleys, and cities of our country.

Remembering Antietam: The Battlefield and the Illumination

The pictures of the illumination are a little rough, but the sentiment of 1 candle lit paper bag for every dead or injured soldier in the momentous Civil War battle (23,000) is one of honor and commitment, which means a lot to me. Definitely worth the trip. http://www.nps.gov/anti/planyourvisit/luminary.htm

Burning of Chambersburg


BURNING_OF_CHAMBERSBURG_09.JPG

The annual tribute to the town that was ransacked and burned down by Confederates in retaliation for Northern aggression in the South. Some Confederates resisted and helped the town in the time of damage and pain. One Colonel actually disobeyed a direct order to do this, and gave up his position. A very powerful dramatization.

Located in Paterson, New Jersey, which no longer resembles the world of William Carlos Williams (it's a run down industrial city in northern New Jersey's New York City over-spill). It's a shame though because the width on these bad boys and their drop (apparently it changes between mid 50s and high 70s) makes them one of the biggest flowing waterfalls in the area (we were told just behind Niagara). I definitely would recommend them, but I would also say to make sure you go in daylight.

angel_falls_spring_2013_32.jpg

Sunshine, fresh air, dirt, water, sweat, and mud may be the answer to the meaning of life (definitely the spring and summer version), but finding wildflowers is always so much more fun with Heather. Scott Brown informed his readers that if you blink, you might miss the stream to the waterfall because it's such a piddly little thing. It is. Stick to the old trail when the Loyalsock goes back up the hill. You don't want that. Also, if you overshoot it, you'll go down toward a cabin and a fence for a wild area. If you've gone there, you're too far. The brush and the cold streams mean TURN AROUND - don't proceed on!

Trough Creek State Park: Rhodos, waterfall, rock, + a windblown trail


trough_creek_state_park_summer_2011_8.jpg

The home of Rainbow Falls, which also houses Raystown Lake, some superb views, a balanced rock, and a lot of rhododendrons and mountain laurel. The trail is really not maintained, and frankly, it's easy to get into adventures trying to find the blazes as things that aren't the trail, looks like the trail - not to mention how many trails all run together in one small section of the map. A nice place to hike - if you know that.

Centralia and Ashland: Where the mines run deep and the fires still burn


we_love_centralia.jpg

The coal fires that have raged under this town have driven out all but the die hards. You've gotta be a die hard to put up with the smell of sulphur.

Wildcat Falls - A Waterfall in the Backyard


wildcat_falls_7.jpg

Thanks to the owner for being so cool as to not care about unknown tourists asking to see his waterfall (blame Waterfalls of the Mid Atlantic by Gary Letcher). We knocked and he was generous. There wasn't much water, but I can imagine how beautiful the backyard would look after a rainstorm!

So we went Fourth of July Camping at Little Buffalo State Park


little_buffalo_state_park_28.jpg

The map says it's just outside of Harrisburg, but actually, it's a little more north. The Juniata River (pronounced JOO NEE AT UH - not JUAN EE AT UH - important note for people from Ohio) runs behind the campground we stayed at and Little Buffalo Creek is a nice manmade lake with a great walk around it.

Wissahickon Gorge: Philadelphia Nature Hike


wissahickon_gorge_33.jpg

The crown jewel of Philthydelphia's Fairmount Park. I can't say a lot of nice things about Philthydelphia (save it is Will Smith's home town - "hell yeah!"), so that's actually saying something.
