These are pictures from my trip back to my old stomping grounds have been posted in their own gallery on my website. I've grouped them into a few sub-albums:
Miscellaneous -- Things that didn't fit with the others. aureth should look at this if only for three pictures.
Farm Ruins -- I found an old farm about 3 miles from my parents' property that's for sale, with copious ruins on the land. I suspect when I come back for Thanksgiving it will be sold and the old buildings torn down, so photographing this became something of a mission for me. urocyon would be proud.
Skidloader -- Because men love powerful toys, cigars and playing in the dirt.
Scenic Overlook -- This is the Black River Falls scenic overlook, which you can only reach from the Westbound side of I-90/94. I stopped to use their facilities and ended up taking an additional 45 minute break to tromp up a steep hill in dress shoes, wool slacks and a heavy black long-sleeved shirt so I could get some photographs.
Tourist Trap -- The Black River Crossing Oasis, where aureth, jenwolf and I stopped for lunch on our way to CONvergence 2002. It's a gift store, a restaurant, a gas station, a hotel and so much more! It's also home to towering, terrifying fiberglass ... things.
