Earlier this year, my wife and I spent some time in north-eastern North Carolina on vacation. While there, we visited Merchants Millpond state park, which I would rank among the most scenic in the state. The day we visited happened to be the centennial celebration for the park, so the crowd was larger than usual. That said, we had a fantastic time. We rented a canoe and explored the pond, making this outing among my favorite state park visits to date. Here’s the accompanying photo album.
Last December, on a particularly warm day, my wife and I visited Cliffs of the Neuse state park. Located just south of Goldsboro, North Carolina, this park has some very interesting geography. High cliffs tower 90 feet over the Neuse river, in an otherwise flat area of the state. As usual, we took along our cameras, and this album is the result.
I’m backlogged on photos, so expect more in the coming days and weeks (I have 10 more albums to post!).
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:
- Atlanta Aquarium
- Sweetwater Creek State Park
- Kerr Lake State Recreation Area
- WRAL Hot Air Balloon Festival
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
