[Tuesday Map] The Stony Recesses & Tower of Verrul

I’m putting together another set of printed maps for my incredibly generous Patreon patrons. To do so means going through my scanned maps folders, throwing them on a USB stick, and heading out to the print shop. 518 more words



Scary places right?

some enjoy the dripping walls, the shadows in corners,

the deep recesses of the mind

that keep us sheltered from what we fear, 72 more words



It is nearly sunrise. In the middle of the viny, creeper-induced claustrophobia that I’ve cultivated rises a chain-linked fence with, contrary to ordinance,  some razor wire at the top. 440 more words


Missouri- Meramec Caverns

I haven’t sat still for long this summer. I’m a bit surprised. So expect to see posts about all of mini US summer road trips on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. 278 more words

US Road Trip

Lewis and Clark Caverns--Click on image to view gallery!

Here is another gallery from our recent western wanderings. This gallery comes courtesy of Lewis and Clark Caverns in  southern Montana. I live not far from its more-famous cousin, Carlsbad Caverns.

Carlsbad Caverns is an amazing place, and I’ve visited numerous times, including last fall. But I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem, not far from Yellowstone National Park. It was one of the few places we stopped that is neither a national park nor a national monument (though it was once federal land before being sold to the state of Montana), so it doesn’t get the same amount of press. But boy am I glad we stopped and took the tour through the cavern! If you’re ever in the area to visit the other “big-name” national parks, you should spare a day to visit these limestone beauties!
