Scenic South Dakota

Surprisingly, the town of Scenic, South Dakota is anything but and is currently in a state of ruin and disarray. Currently, the town sits abandoned and empty, as if it is waiting for nature to completely wipe it off the map, which may just make it the most abandoned town in South Dakota.

Monsoon Season Begins

The desert just woke up … The air smelt of creosote, and the distinctive olive-green bush with oily leaves was filled with bright yellow flowers. Wildflowers and a barrel cactus, withered and dry a few days ago, were blooming… dragonflies and birds filled the air, lizards, quail and roadrunners scuttled on the ground, a jackrabbit hopping across the trail, and a cardinal, with its bright red plumage flying by. Sunset brings bats, the sounds of frogs and the howl of coyotes. The desert awakes…

USS Cobia

USS Cobia was launched November 28, 1943, in Groton, CT. In June 1944, she began the first of six war patrols in which she sank thirteen Japanese vessels. By July 1944, Cobia had established herself in the annals of World War II sub history by attacking an enemy convoy bound for Japanese-held Iwo Jima. In 1986, Cobia was incorporated as a part of the Manitowoc Maritime Museum in Wisconsin, declared a National Historic Landmark, and placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Falling Man

The Falling Man site is located in Gold Butte National Monument. This is one of the most stunning landscapes in the Southwest…beautifully colored red Aztec sandstone, along with purple and orange rocks. The rock art in this location has many layers of history, being used by several generations over the millennia. Estimates date the rock art between 700 years old for the newest petroglyphs to 7,000 years old for the very oldest. The name “falling man” comes from a single image of a man that appears to be falling, located on the cliff wall. Based on the image and its location on a high narrow edge of a it’s easy to think that this was some form of memorial for an individual that fell. Per Guide

Wynwood Walls

The Wynwood Art District in Miami contains galleries, outdoor murals and private art collections. It was conceived in 2009 as a way to revitalize the neighborhood by turning warehouses into works of art. Formerly an industrial district, the area is now known for the murals that cover the walls of many of the buildings and much of the sidewalks. Wikipedia This building contains an arts and crafts business. This mural, and all the art I saw in the area, was done using spray cans.

Zion National Park Virgin River

The Virgin River has carved a spectacular gorge in the upper reaches of Zion Canyon: 16 miles long, up to 1,000 feet deep, and at times only 30 feet wide. Walking in the shadow of soaring walls, sandstone grottos, natural springs, and hanging gardens can be an unforgettable wilderness experience. It is not, however, a trip to be underestimated. When hiking through the Virgin River Narrows, at least 80% of the route is spent wading, walking, and swimming sections of the river. There is no maintained trail; the river is the route. The river current is swift, the water is cold, and the rocks underfoot are slippery. Flash flooding and hypothermia are constant dangers. Per NPS

It feeds on rodents, rabbits, hares, and some birds. Wikipedia I found him in front of the house and was surprised how close he let me get. The reason was he had a rabbit trapped below him that was hiding behind a cactus, neither wanting to move. Eventually the cat stood up and slowly walked away from both of us.

Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge Pat Tillman, an American football player who left his career with the Arizona Cardinals to enlist in the United States Army and was killed in Afghanistan in 2004 by friendly fire. It is an arch bridge that spans the Colorado River between the of Arizona and Nevada. The bridge is located within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and carries Interstate 11 and U.S. Route 93 over the Colorado River. The bridge was the first concrete-steel composite arch bridge built in the United States, and incorporates the widest concrete arch in the Western Hemisphere. At 890 feet above the Colorado River, it is the second highest bridge in the United States after the Royal Gorge Bridge near Cañon City, Colorado, and is the world's highest concrete arch bridge. I took this photo while standing on top of the Hoover Dam. Pedestrian access is provided over the bridge who wish to take in a different view of the nearby dam and river below, but the dam is not visible for those driving across it.
