Up Panther Top

2008-11-02T14:30:12.675-05:00

Once a year, the Forest Service opens Panther Top lookout for a couple weekends so people can see the fall views.
(image)
You can walk up the road, though, about a mile, to get there, any other time of the year.
(image)
This time, a ranger was on duty to explain the views.(image)

I got a new camera to take closeups, since it was the one thing my trusty Kodak zoom couldn't do well. It's about time to record the flowers before they go away, anyway.



We have rain!

It's been a long time coming. So the pictures aren't much but today I'm thinking of my parents, married 70 years ago today amid the wreckage of a late southern New England hurricane....(image)

Southern videos

2008-09-24T11:41:51.763-04:00

Over at the Knoxville News, online editor Jack Lail has a personal blog called Random Mumblings, mostly about journalism, but sometimes he points out things of local interest, like this great You Tube site from photojournalist Dan McCoig that he calls Dan Traveling.

Most of the videos are from places around the South, especially North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Lail's link was to a video on the great face jug makers at King's Pottery in Seagrove NC.

Fun with trains

2008-09-22T17:18:51.188-04:00

Over at Mineral Bluff, Ga, they were having the second annual Ride the Rails festival. The old depot was renovated last year and now houses a growing model train layout.

On the outside, old timers and kids were having fun with trains.

(For some reason, size and layout isn't working today on my Blogger account.)
