I’ve done a re-edit of the story on hospice care, cutting out about half a minute and making it a little more to the point (at least I think that’s what I did…). Please let me know if you think it works better this way!
Here’s another piece of the $10 Trips series. It’s about Devil’s Backbone, a marvellous lime stone ridge in the Cedar Creek district of the Mark Twain National Forest, about 20 miles south of Columbia. At first sight it doesn’t seem very spectacular, but the beauty of the place lies within the several, well-hidden rock outcroppings that offer breathtaking vistas over the Cedar Creek below. It’s a paradise for bird watchers, and I spent six straight hours on one of the rock outcroppings without moving an inch. It’s just incredible there, and this place definitely is one of my top favourites. Enjoy the show!
Yesterday I spent the whole day in the Finger Lakes State Park and the Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area. A former strip mining area, the place has been reseeded and the coal pits filled with water so that they form a vast maze of finger-shaped lakes. The parks offer something for everyone. Whether you like swimming, scuba diving, motocross racing, mountainbiking, bird watching or just plain, old hiking – you’ll get it here. Enjoy the show!
This is a part of the grad component for my staff photojournalism course. The idea behind it is to show a number of places that do not cost more than $10 (both ways) to reach and where people can spend a nice day or weekend trip. The first one featured here is the Shooting Star Trailhead at Gans Creek Wild Area, a part of the Rock Bridge Memorial State Park. Enjoy!
