Poverty Point

Blake - 14-Nov-22

I went to poverty point in october of 2022, it is extremely out of the way and not near anything. I recommend it as a day trip if you go to new orleans. If you need gas or food the Farmer one stop right by it is something I recommend, it's not gourmet but it's a friendly little spot with a bit of everything. I spent about 4 hours on an archaeological day (highly recommend) there, about an hour and a half to hike the site, 30 minutes in the museum and the rest at the archaleogical day exhibits. Atlatl throwing was my favorite demonstration. I highly recommend the 15 minutes of film the museum offers before you do the hike, it was extremely informative. The Mound A is the highlight of the hike, pictures do not and as far as I'm concerned do not do it justice

Statue of Liberty

Blake - 14-Nov-22

I went to the Statue of Liberty in November of 2022, the covid restrictions were mostly lifted and the statue of liberty cruises that got us to the island were packed and rocky, people piled on in hoards and they packed the boats full of people. Some people in line and I joked they were giving us the real experience. The statue of liberty was extremely impressive, the size and immensity of it were not understated and it's a beautiful statue. I plan on going to NYC again and will probably do a crown tour when I do so (this requires months of advance in registering) otherwise I don't plan on returning. I felt that I got everything out of the experience I could the first time.

Everglades

Blake - 14-Nov-22

I went to the Everglades the weekend before thanksgiving of 2019, the climate was perfect for the area. My first stop was the Flamingo campground area, I only spent a day in total and was not initially impressed with the flamingo area. If you are camping there or staying overnight I think it would be a good place to do so. I biked Shark valley tram road later that day which was an amazing experience. I probably saw upwards of a hundred alligators over 6 feet in length and a dozen baby alligators at the end of the trail. The observation tower allowed for a beautiful view. This is one of the world heritage sites I definitely plan on visiting again I would love to do an airboat tour or a kayaking trip.

Mammoth Cave

Blake - 14-Nov-22

I visited Mammoth Cave in June of 2021, it was a fantastic visit. I did the historic tour which took about two hours. The inside of the cave was the perfect amount of humidity and the perfect temperature. It wasn't too hot nor too cold on a nice summer day. I highly recommend getting reservations for your tour ahead of time. It surpassed my expectations and I will definitely be back for perhaps a longer tour.
