Glade Creek Grist Mill

This is the Glade Creek Grist Mill in Babcock State Park in West Virginia. I have been alluding to my new project for some time. It has finally begun. I am embarking on a multi-year journey around the United States to (surprise!) take photos. In addition, I will be writing, podcasting, blogging and hopefully incorporate some video at some point. I would love it if you all came along for the ride. I will still be posting some of my highlights here, but hop on over to http://www.miles2gobeforeisleep.com to find out more.

River, Clouds and Mountains

This was another beautiful fall scene on my drive down from Alaska. Really a beautiful ride, even on a cloudy day.

Beautiful British Columbia

This seen was just so beautiful I had to pull over and try and capture it. This is somewhere in British Columbia on my drive down from Alaska.

Northern Lights

This was my first somewhat successful shot of the amazing Northern Lights. It was hard to focus in the dark and it took a pretty long exposure to catch it, but they were certainly cool to see. This is Whitey’s Cabin at the Maclaren Lodge in Alaska. IMG_9899.JPG


Alaskan Scenery

What a spectacular view down McCarthy Creek at the Wrangell Mountains. This is in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park in Alaska.

Matanuska Valley

This area was once covered by the receding Matanuska Glacier in Alaska. It has left a pretty spectacular valley.

Mountain Colors

The purple mountain, green trees and blue glacial lake are so cool in this picture. Still on the Icefields Parkway, but now in Banff National Park, Alberta.

Mountain Scene

I really like this one. The mountains, the trees, a beautiful glacial river – what more could you ask for? Along the Icefields Parkway in Jasper National Park, Alberta.

Springwood

This is Springwood, the former home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park, New York. FDR once famously said “all that is within me cries out to go back to my home on the Hudson River”. This is that home.

Tetons and Trees

The Grand Tetons are such powerful mountains. They demand respect. This is just north of Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.
