Trip Reports

Trip Reports

The places I've been. The pictures I've taken.
The scars I've earned along the way.

"There are no unsacred places; there are only
sacred places and desecrated places."

This is a collection of photos taken of four different white trilliums.  These are great flowers.  Lots of textures, lots of nice things going on, visually.

Sandstone Falls

This is the conglomeration of a few different trips.  I kind of stumbled upon this place, not knowing what to expect.  What I found was one of the most unique sites around.

Zig Zag Falls

My hiking partner, Jeremiah Osborne-Gowey, told me of a couple waterfalls worth checking out.  Turns out, we were talking about different places.  I took a couple scouting trips and still found a waterfall.
