Little Rock, Arkansas

June 8, 2017

When I took these photos I didn’t understand the significance of this pagoda-like structure which is actually a gate (cultural sign of welcome) to the H.U. Lee International Garden in downtown Little Rock.

This park would have greater significance to devotees of the martial arts but I now wish I had gone in and walked around a bit as I’m sure it would be interesting (and probably equally photogenic) even for those of us not versed in the martial arts.

I am proud to say this is post number 999!  I have been very fortunate to share lots of photos and stories in at least two years of traveling around the “lower 48” and thank all of you for playing along at home.

But wait… there’s more.  I am going to take a short break to do some research for my upcoming trip to Acadia National Park in Maine and the Maritime Provinces of Canada (plus a little time in Quebec and Ontario provinces).  I start that trip June 28th, 2019 (three weeks from the day I am posting this), which will be here before I know it, so I don’t want to put by remaining research off to the last minute.

Post 1,000 will be a recap of 2017 and 2018 (miles driven, days on the road, number of pictures taken, etc).  I should have time before I head for Canada to post pictures of my week in the San Diego area which occurred in 2014.

And I still have pictures to post from 2015 and 2016.  Those trips, mainly east of the Mississippi, were both done pre-blog and I do have some, but not as many,  photos to post and stories to tell… eventually.

Stay tuned!
