Well, I have no idea where the "malware" is allegedly located within my photo album, but since my link was removed I will try to upload smaller versions (not as nice to view but better than nothing).

Again, these are photos of Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas.

Michael, it probably isn't your album, but the site you use may be infiltrating spyware or adware. This isn't usual for "free" sites... remember, there's no such thing as a free lunch! And, since the link is gone, I don't even know if you're using a free site....

Lex,

I looked at your 2 maps coming west and going back east. I think you have a nice route planned. You'll see the hi-lights of this great country. While everyone has given wonderful information on their locales, there is no way to see all the "little hi-lights".

Last summer I tried to see the "little hi-lights" on my trip to the Great Lakes states. I spent nearly a month in each of the 3 states and still missed a lot.

While in California if you have a time constraint, chose Yosemite NP over Sequoia NP. Yosemite is a must see. I've been to most National Parks and in my humble opinion Yosemite has the most breathtaking scenery. Yellowstone is number 2 on my list.

Our country is just too big to see in such a short time. You are definitely seeing the major sites while here.

Have wonderful time and if you see any little fiberglass trailers along the way be sure to stop and say "HI". I'll watch for you.

Michael,
Great photos, and thanks for sharing.
Petit Jean is a beautiful park... as are so many in Arkansas... and very easily accessible. The road up is easy to drive, and well worth the time. There's a lot to do at Petit Jean as well. The "hike" to the falls is more of a walk, with the well-landscaped and leveled trail/boardwalk.

In the same area, we also enjoyed Lake Ouachita SP, Mt. Magazine SP, and the COE park Cove Lake last year. Actually, Cove Lake was our favorite. The lakefront campsite was huge... really huge... totally private,and I think, $10 a night. As if we needed a big site for privacy... In early September, we were the only people in our entire loop. Primitive camping, (vault toilets, dump station, and water spigots spaced around, not individual, no electric) but we're equipped for that. We saw nothing from our campsite but old pine and emerging hardwood, wildlife, and the lake.

Lake Ouachita wins my award for best showerhouse/bathrooms for last year's camping. Newly redone, immaculate, well-ventilated, and big spaces. Lake Ouachita is another place where we lucked into a wonderful lakeview campsite on short notice. Usually, booked well in advance.... according to the very friendly staff at the checkin center.

Donna, it's a free picture hosting site called eSnips. So now I know how they finance the free service, I guess.

I was really surprised how many nice pictures I was able to get at Petit Jean... it is quite photogenic.

Hey, thanks for the comments and info. I'll have to keep Cove Lake in mind, and Paris... I could then say honestly that I've been to Paris! I do like quiet campgrounds with big sites.

Just had the opportunity to welcome Lex and Rita to the States. They spent several days in Gainesville Florida while waiting for their vehicle and trailer to arrive from overseas. We had great fun, with a football game and alligator sightings included. If any of you out there in the USA and Canada have the opportunity to meet Lex and Rita, I would certainly recommend it. They are wonderful people with whom we can hopefully share the hospitality and beauty of our respective states and provinces.
