The Big Thicket

The Big Thicket is a patchwork of forest in east Texas that is run by the National Park Service.

I had been here 9 years ago in a wetlands class […]

Trail Tales 12: New York

Sometimes I wonder where the past three months went. It will be almost three months ago that we were on Katahdin. I am certainly not where I thought […]
