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.
