I’m going to be playing catchup with the next few posts. Finally got around to working a bunch of images from some wandering around I did last year, I just kept on traveling and was so busy shooting I never found time to work the backlog.
Wanted to share some pics from a stop over in Arkansas on my last cross country tour. A huge thanks to the Chappell’s for taking me in, Cynthia for making me feel right at home down south and Charles for showing me some great spots and hikes in the Buffalo River Valley. Can’t wait to see ya’ll again soon!
Some old farming buildings long since abandoned in the Buffalo River Valley.
Blanchard Springs, in the Ozarks region, as fresh as it gets!
Getting a shower Arkansas style at Hemmed-in Hollow. At 209 ft., its the tallest waterfall between the Rockies and Appalachia.
Floating down the Buffalo.
Catching a sweet storm over the rolling hills of the Ozarks.
I spent a few weeks driving around the Rockies in Colorado and finding all sorts of great places long abandoned and slowly returning to the earth.
St. Elmo, a wonderful preserved little ghost town in the heart of the Sawatch Range, and the jumping off point to a number of old mining sites way up in the mountains.
Along Colorado’s Scenic Alpine loop lies the ghost town of Animas Fork, an amazingly well preserved ghost town that has stood dormant since this mill closed more than 100 years ago.
The bones of an old church jut out of a forest along Hwy 25 in eastern Colorado, the only remains of an old mining town which once thrived there.

An old dancehall in an abandoned amusement park, Central PA
A few from Crater Lake, OR
Many forest fires raging through SW Washington
Lighting flashes as the clouds open up an isolated rainstorm
Crop burns and hundred of geese coming in for a landing
High atop the Columbia River Valley, OR
Striated land shows just how series the drought has become in Southern California
My buddy Banks perched atop Sequoia’s infamous Mono Rock
The ascent up Mono Rock
Just down the other side of the Sierra’s are the strange tufa formations of Mono Lake
