"The more you let yourself be distracted from where you are going, the more you are
the person that you are. It's not so much like getting lost as it is like getting found."
"The Earth does not belong to us, We belong to the Earth."
"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."
Photo galleries are now current. Will work on restructuring the main pages over the next week...new stories should
be up here on the front page soon. I will upload older journal entries in 3 or 6 month blocks, as time allows and post a notification here.

Caney Creek/Brushy Lake
Bankhead National Forest, AL
My first trip out to field test my new dslr camera rewarded me with some decent photos of the upper and lower Caney Creek Falls. Also,
the late summer/fall bloom cycle was well underway, with a variety of sunflowers, lobelia, phlox and asters. Later, we visited Brushy Lake
and fished for a while, catching and releasing a little more than half a dozen bluegill.

June 1, 2012:
Natchez Trace / Duck River
Natchez Trace Parkway, TN
Adventure one of the Crypozoological Response Team, in search of the Duck River Beast. While we found no
conclusive evidence of the creature, we did find plenty of waterfalls and more trail than we could handle on a gorgeous
stretch of the Natchez Trace Parkway.
