A wonderful and rare bird is the California Condor. I visited the Grand Canyon last weekend and to my surprise, saw these beautiful creatures here which are part of a reintroduction program. If you get the chance, drop by the Grand Canyon to view the California Condor.

Old Rag

View of Old Rag Mt. as seen from Pinnicles overlook in Shenandoah National Park. Taken the day after Hurricane Katrina’s remains passed over the park, thus clearing the normal haze. After getting a lot of comments on the color saturation I feel I should level with how this photo was taken. It was taken with a disposable camera and developed as any other film would be, with no alterations at all. It was just that beautiful of a scene. The flecks are a result of a scan and do not appear on the physical copy.

“Looking for an excuse to take a hike? Then head to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and help rangers identify the locations of ash trees in the park.

During an upcoming stretch of Saturdays park biologists will be working to collect data and map locations of ash trees in parts of the park. And they’d be happy to have your help.

The dates to choose from are: Saturday August 28 (at Smokemont Campground in N.C.), Saturday September 11 (at Oconaluftee in N.C.), Saturday September 25 (at Deep Creek in N.C.), or Saturday, October 2 (at a location to be determined in Tennessee). On each of these dates the scheduled field activity will run from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.” Click here for more information on this opportunity.
