A Grand Experiment's PhotoBlog

Today I was driving to work... I volunteer at Custer State Park, and it was my turn to open the Wildlife Visitor Center and assist any folks who happened to…

The other day, I went for a walk along the Creekside Trail in Custer State Park. The trail is a paved walking trail that runs alongside Grace Coolidge Creek and…

Last Tuesday, I headed out to Brazos Bend State Park here in southeast Texas. It's a low, swampy area, about 4,900 acres, which is home to different types of…

My last stop in the Dakotas was in North Dakota, at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I have to admit, I was there after the tourist season (late October), so…

Last Friday, Custer State Park held their annual buffalo roundup. I was fortunate enough to view it from the South viewing area, so I thought I'd share some of…

The Black Hills, formed millions of years ago by tectonic activity deep within the earth, turned out to be very rich sources of precious metals. In 1874, Custer…

On January 1, I thought I'd celebrate the new year by taking a hike somewhere nearby. One of my favorite hikes is Little Devils Tower (LDT) in Custer State Park…

This post is quite a departure from my regular landscape and outdoor posts. The other day, I attended a Santana concert at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo…

It's hard to describe a visit to Carlsbad. I stopped there on my way back from South Dakota and it turned out to be an underground wonderland. There were so…

On the way to the Black Hills, after 4 days of driving I stopped at Badlands National Park in South Dakota. I wanted very much to drop the trailer for a while…

I'm working on the photos from the journey to South Dakota, but I thought I'd share two from (literally) the road... On the way from Mount Rushmore to Custer…
