Photo Catch-Up

August 19, 2015

I recently realized that I had forgotten to post some news about various photo albums I’ve put up on my photography site. I’ve been woefully behind the times in getting things posted, but I’m slowly catching up. Here are the albums I’ve posted so far that I didn’t mention here:

I have a number of albums from California in the wings, followed by a number of albums for new state parks that I’ve visited. Stay tuned!

Carolina Beach State Park Photos

May 22, 2015

I’ve finally gotten around to posting some photos from a trip my wife and I took last year right before we got married. We visited Carolina Beach state park back in September, and enjoyed our trip (it was a nice break from all the hectic wedding planning). If you’re ever in the Wilmington, NC area, be sure to check it out!

Gorges State Park

November 22, 2013

I’ve just posted some photos from an autumn visit to Gorges state park. The park has improved significantly since I was last there, with the inclusion of a stellar visitor’s center (with some really nice views). Gorges remains one of my favorite state parks!

Lake James State Park

November 16, 2013

I’ve posted another photo album from my trip last month to the Asheville area. This time, the focus is on Lake James State Park, which is located near Marion, NC. This park has incredible vistas of mountain ranges over the lake, and was well worth the visit.

Lake Norman State Park Photos

November 15, 2013

I’ve just posted my Lake Norman State Park photo album, showcasing a few sights from the park. We visited this park last month during a short trip to Asheville. Though it was a cold day, the park was another nice one to visit.

Crowders Mountain State Park

November 3, 2013

Back in early October, I visited Crowders Mountain state park with my girlfriend and my family. Located west of Charlotte, the park is a very nice (and popular!) place to visit, with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside atop the mountain. I’ve just published some photos of our visit. If you’re ever in the area, check it out!

Fort Fisher Photos

July 3, 2013

I’ve just posted a new photo series showcasing Fort Fisher. This day trip involved a visit to both the aquarium there, as well as the state recreational area. I have now visited and photographed 25 state parks in North Carolina!

Stone Mountain State Park

April 22, 2013

Earlier this month, my girlfriend and I set out for yet another visit to a North Carolina state park. This time, we checked out Stone Mountain state park, near the town of Traphill. Stone Mountain is easily one of North Carolina’s most scenic parks, and offers fantastic hiking trails. Several waterfalls can also be enjoyed in the park, along with the site of an historic homestead from the mid-19th century. I’ve posted some photos from our trip, showcasing some of the sights from the park.

Jones Lake State Park

January 22, 2013

I have just posted an album showcasing some of the sites of Jones Lake State Park. Like Singletary Lake state park, Jones Lake is located near Elizabethtown, NC. The park offers some nice hiking opportunities, and is quite scenic.

Singletary Lake State Park

January 18, 2013

I’ve just posted some photos from Singletary Lake State Park, located near Elizabethtown, NC. This was a great park, but it’s typically only open to groups for camping trips. The ranger there was kind enough to let us hike the nature trail, so I was able to get a view of yet another of our state’s wonderful parks!
