Two Dead Trees, Big Stump Trail, Kings Canyon NP

Although it is the first trail encountered after the Kings Canyon National Park entrance, most visitors skip the Big Stump Trail.

Photographing Fall Foliage in Sequoia National Park

In my quest to photograph fall foliage in each of the National Parks, I revisited Sequoia National Park at the end of October 2015.

Photo Spot 46: Congaree National Park – Weston Lake

Located in South Carolina just a half-hour’s from its capital Columbia, Congaree National Park preserves the largest remaining old-growth bottomland forest in North America. The easy 2.4 mile boardwalk loop trail is an obvious choice for an introduction to the park, offering diverse perspectives, and natural environments. It begins on the bluff where the visitor […]

Photo Spot 34: Great Smoky Mountains National Park – Clingsman’s Dome

The Appalachians, largest mountain range in the Eastern US, culminates at its southern end in North Carolina and Tennessee. Those two states split Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which preserves one of the finest virgin deciduous forest in the world. The top of Clingsman’s Dome is the highest point in the Park, at 6,643 ft […]
