horses, a boars head, and a bit of texas in the bluegrass.

after having breakfast at the P.M.G. natasha invited me to tag along and see where she grew up and the oldest strip mine in letcher county. i accepted the invitation because she's always talking about how blackey is the coolest place and how anyone who grew up on "the seven" is the shit, i had to see for myself. after arriving in her home hollow, we traded out the civic for her cousins enormous 4X4 Dodge to head up the mountain to one of her favorite places, where the power lines are. when we got to the top it looked like we had crossed state lines from kentucky to texas and tasha said that it looked as such. i imagine that this place would be the poster child for "reclaimed" land. tall dry grasses, grazing cattle and horses, an surprisingly what looked like trees or big bushes maybe. well these are some of the photos from the trip. there is a bit of humor at the end of the post, but you have to look for it. thanks tasha for leading me down the seven and showing me where you grew up.

tag! you're it.

put two photographers armed with cameras together and what follows is what i imagine looks like a ridiculous game of tag. imagine watching from afar two people in all sorts of awkward positions taking photos of each other. yes photo friends, we all look that stupid. i'm sure krista and i looked silly as we hiked along raven's rock this past weekend.

n.y. times article mentions summit city.

i was surprised to see carl kiilsgaard stroll through the door at summit city last week, but i quickly found out he wasn't there for the show, but was working on an assignment for the n.y. times. the story is on a new trail being constructed on pine mountain a.k.a. my front yard. go to the site to see carl's pictures and to read the story.

6 1/2 hour haul.

that's how far it is from whitesburg to mayfield, but it was well worth the drive to see so many great people, dabble with video, and tell endless poop jokes. thanks to hunter and katie for putting me up in bg. i miss all of you. move to whitesburg. we're always looking for a few good people.
