Every year I sort through thousands of photos and choose my favorite twenty or so to turn in to a little art show in my classroom at school. Then I turn them into cards and mail them home to students. These are my selections from June 2017 – May 2018.

Last summer I stumbled on to the stunning Botany Bay Beach on the barrier island – Edisto Island. This part of the island is constantly being eroded and the sand is deposited on the south end of the island. Change of over time.
I have been slowly visiting all the State Parks and Historic Sites in Missouri. There are a total of 52 State Parks and 35 Historic Sites. In one weekend I managed to visit 11. During this trip, my favorite locations were the Battle of Island Mound and Watkins Glen Historic Site.
In March 2017, I spent some time exploring the National and State Park lands of the American West. We drove 4000 miles and visited 9 states. These photos are some of my favorite because of how peaceful these locations were in the off season. We made it to Chimney rock right at sunset and had the place to ourselves, and we visited Scottsbluff National Monument early in the morning before others arrived. Most people go south for spring break, I went North and was rewarded with rustic quietness.
Wind Cave National Park ranks highly among the US Parks. I stumbled on to these beauties while driving through the backroads of the park.
