A quick day trip through Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas – touring bath houses and local sites.
The loop that I chose started at a covered bridge near the mill, followed Slippery Rock Creek to the next bidge, and then returned to the mill. The whole while, I was surrounded by rushing water, towering rock walls, fly-fishermen, and tons of boulders.
The Blessing of the Fleet in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Golden Meadow, LA Catholic Church – Our Lady of Prompt Succor. The Blessing of the Fleet is not a new tradition: it’s been present in some form or another among the French-Catholic fishing communities of South Louisiana for nearly 300 years.
Clare Nolan vacations on the Hawaiian island of Oahu with a couple of friends from Melbourne.
The last collection of images from Parker’s NYC tour is a catch-all of whatever didn’t fit neatly into the previous categories: Chinatown, the subway, the Museum of Natural History, Wall Street, and Radio City Music Hall.
I will go right ahead and say it; this is one of the most impressive places I have ever visited. We explored the museum for about 5 hours… 4 hours roaming around at our leisure, and then 1 hour running around like maniacs trying to catch a glimpse of as much of the rest of the place as possible.
Parker explores MOMA! “I made sure to make this the first museum stop on our trip. And like most stops of our trip, we simply did not have enough time…”
Parker’s seventh part in the NYC series surveys New York City’s pizzerias, other eateries, and a few nerd outings to boot.
Part six of Parker’s New York City series highlights the green spaces: Central Park, the Cloisters, Bryant Park, the High Line, and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
NYC trip 5 of 10: Coney. Parker visits a desolate Coney Island, “At first it seemed a bit foolish to go when it would be so deserted and with none of the amusement park rides going. But it turned out to be a pretty good turn of events”
NYC trip 4 of 10: Times Square Insanity. Parker visits Times Square three times in part four of his slice of New York City.
NYC trip 3 of 10: Architecture. In part three of Parker’s slice of New York City, he focuses on the memorable structures that define the landscape.
NYC trip 2 of 10: Lady Liberty. We arrived at Battery Park at 8:00 AM to take off by way of the Statue Cruises ferry line towards the Statue of Liberty.
New York City, as I’m sure many will agree, is a place that needs many weeks, months, if not years to see. We just had a week, so we made sure to make the best of it.
Out-and-back scramble and hike along Panther Creek to the Panther Creek Falls near Cornelia, GA.
A quick hiking trip to Cheaha State Park in Alabama’s Talladega National Forest – bagging another state high point!
If you find yourself on the north end of town in San Francisco, follow the coast east from the Golden Gate Bridge, just passed Presidio Beach, and you will come to a small spit of land that juts out into the bay. Follow the stone-lined road passed St. Francis and Golden Gate Yacht Club, and you will find yourself surrounded by water and stone ruins. You have located San Francisco’s Wave Organ – defined on the Exploratorium website as, “a wave-activated acoustic sculpture.”
On the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge lies the other half of Golden Gate National Recreational Area and the Marin Headlands – a lush rolling land that dips down to the water for some fantastic views of the bay area.
If you’re visiting the San Francisco Bay Area for any amount of days, I would say that Muir Woods National Monument belongs on your list of must-see locations. We rented a car to get there, but the park is just a hop and a skip over the Golden Gate Bridge – 16 miles from downtown San Francisco.
When the 1967 flower-power anthem San Francisco said, “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair”, it was talking about the Haight-Ashbury District.
A stroll through Japantown in San Francisco, CA. See brilliant foods, toys, paper foldings, grocery signs, a wooden Vader helmet, and much more.
