Mississippi and Alabama, 4th of July weekend, 2011

In 2011, we took a short holiday down to the Gulf Coast.  This one of my earliest “long” videos – just over 2 minutes – with a music track.

Photographs in Carol M. Highsmith’s America Project in the Carol M. Highsmith Archive. Highsmith, a distinguished and richly published American photographer, has donated her work to the Library of Congress since 1992. Starting in 2002, Highsmith provided scans or photographs she shot digitally with new donations to allow rapid online access throughout the world. Her generosity in dedicating the rights to the American people for copyright free access also makes this Archive a very special visual resource.

Leaving Rendezvous Mountain via Aerial Tram

From our 2010 travels, this video is looking back at the mountain as we ride the tram back down to Teton Village, Wyoming.

Early 20th Century Yellowstone National Park Footage

The Internet Archive site can be a good source for public domain material and is where, in 2009, I found the following video, which I uploaded to YouTube. It includes images of an early recreational vehicle — a trailer –, boiling an egg in a hot thermal pool, a man feeding a bear, Old Faithful geyser, and old Faithful Inn.

An oasis within the Utah desert

Fruita Campground, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, March 29, 20161

Fruita Campground2

The 71-site Fruita Campground is often described as an oasis within the desert. Adjacent to the Fremont River and surrounded by historic orchards, this developed campground has 64 RV/tent sites and 7 walk-in tent sites. Each site has a picnic table and firepit (walk-in sites have a grill instead of a firepit), but no individual water, sewage, or electrical hookups. There is a RV dump and potable water fill station near the entrance to Loops A and B. Restrooms feature running water and flush toilets, but no showers. Accessible sites are located adjacent to restrooms.

Open year-round, the Fruita Campground is the only developed campground in Capitol Reef National Park and as a result often fills by early to mid-morning during the spring and fall seasons. Sites are first-come, first-served. Site saving is prohibited.
