What A Long Strange Trip
A friend from Cleveland, Ohio, Brian Daley, showed up at my apartment in Holland, Michigan during the summer of 1985, asking if I’d be interested in traveling to Wisconsin to hear the Grateful Dead perform back-to-back shows. After gathering my backpack, we then scoured the town in order to purchase the only remaining original formula Coca Cola available – following the recent change – and hit the road in his Honda Prelude.
Along the way, we must have bumped into at least a dozen people on the road that Brian, a Deadhead, knew from various shows he’d attended. That seemed rather unlikely – what were the odds? – though, less so upon arrival at the venue.
We set up a tent on the edge of a farmer’s field near the concert grounds, purchased tickets and proceeded to the first show, on Friday night. It was an excellent concert, though it took quite a while to exit the amphitheater, afterwards; something was obstructing the door at the top of the hill.
Once finally outside, we saw that a large car (a dark blue, Oldsmobile Delta 88) had parked crosswise, directly in front of the exit. That car belonged to friends of ours – Bernie, Libby & Roger – from Holland, Michigan, who heard that we had gone to the show and took a road trip to join us. Realizing that we would likely be very difficult to locate among the crowd, they decided to be as conspicuous as possible. Indeed!

On a recent visit to Cades Cove, located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, near Townsend, I pulled over to park near a creek and explore the area. This photograph was taken that day.

After a rather strenuous ascent up the mountain from Lower Catawba Falls, I was finally greeted by the beautiful & isolated 60-foot tall Upper Catawba Falls, which I had to myself for the entirety of my +1 hour visit. Prints available.
Prints available. Only 26 miles east of Asheville, North Carolina, the picturesque Catawba Falls stands 100-feet tall and is located in the Pisgah National Forest. With a second waterfall upstream, and also many smaller falls along the Catawba River, this park features several beautiful and peaceful areas to enjoy.
Prints available. Downstream from the top waterfall on Paine Creek, there are several smaller falls following gravity through a boulder-strewn hillside – as seen here, dropping 10-feet on to a fallen tree in the plunge pool below. I hope you enjoy my photography.
Hikers: if you haven’t visited this area, the Laurel-Snow State Natural Area near Dayton is one of the best kept secrets on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. Whether hiking to Buzzards Point, Laurel Falls, or anywhere between, beautiful scenery abounds!
Prints available. From Richland Creek in the gorge, a hike up the ravine, along a few narrow passes and boulder fields, this beautiful waterfall on top of Paine Creek awaits visitors. Located on the Cumberland Plateau near Dayton, Tennessee.
