Arkansas is Awesome!

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.  

10,000′ Up to 200′ Below – White Mountains to Death Valley

 At 10,000 feet up in the White mountains, high above the tree line, these ancient bristlecone pines have been documented to live up 5,000+ years, making them the world’s oldest living organism.   
 After running around through the Inyo forest for awhile, I headed down into the Eureka Valley, 
to visit the tallest sand dunes in the US, looming 700 ft over the dry lake they inhabit.
 The Racetrack Playa in Death Valley, unfortunately, the strange phenomena that occurs here with the sailing stones is nearly at an end due to assholes stealing souvenirs.
 
A long road home….

Tonlé Sap & Siem Reap, Cambodia

Just south of Siem Reap lies Tonlé Sap, Southeast Asia’s largest lake.  Designated a UNESCO site, it harbors more than just an amazing array of animals.  Since the lake and connecting river reverse flow twice a year and it goes from empty to enormous depending on the season, local fisherman have formed an entire town floating on the lake’s surface, with schools, stores, and even an alligator farm. 

Roadtrippin’ USA – Part 1 of ??

I recently headed home for the holidays, and as I’ve always loved a good road trip, packed up the car with my buddy Wes and headed east for Pennsylvania.  I’ve since travelled 11,000 miles and taken 2 months on the road and already made the journey home, but I’ve been bad about blogging.  The first few images I’ve posted below, but will have much more soon to follow as soon as I develop my film.  Stay tuned!

Washington State (as of 12.06.11)

I’ve been wandering Washington State for the last two weeks, from the Olympic Pennisula to the Palouse on its eastern edge, this is a pretty fantastic place.

So the moon is fading, think I’ll spend some time in Seattle and get in a bit of civilization awhile, then start working my way back down south…

Hope this view was worth it, shortly after an 80 mph wind gust decided to topple and shatter one of my cameras into half a dozen pieces…
