This is the Greenbrier Hotel in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. It is a beautiful place and was also home to a secret underground bunker for the United States Congress until 1992. You can hear the full story on my podcast HERE.
I really love these old Ford touring vehicles in Yellowstone and Glacier. The yellow ones are in Yellowstone (fitting, huh?). The ones in Glacier are red.
Birthplace of the blues! This is Dockery Farms outside of Cleveland, Mississippi.
This is beautiful Stanton Hall in Natchez, Mississippi. Natchez is a beautiful town full of Antebellum homes, and this has always been one of my favorites.
This is the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia. Even the name sends chills up my spine. Originally opened in 1864, it was built to house 240 patients. At it’s peak in the 1950s, it held around 2500 in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. It is purportedly the 2nd largest hand-cut masonry structure in the world next to the Kremlin. Closed only in 1994, it is now open for tours (I will be back for one!), and even overnight tours! Yikes! I will see the inside of this building.
We really enjoyed our Swamp Tour with Cajun Jack in Patterson, Louisiana. He took us out for two hours and up into the hidden corners of the bayou. While it’s not the right season for seeing gators, we saw a ton of birds and it was just a beautiful day to be out.
This beautiful horse-drawn carriage has just made its way through the Quebec City Wall. One of the only walled cities in North America, Quebec no longer uses it for defense, but it does make a wonderful place to walk.
In an unexpected twist, I will be guiding a trip across Canada for the next few weeks. This is a beautiful horse drawn carriage making its way through lovely Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Canadian flag is the dead giveaway!
