Camp McGee

Went camping with the scouts at Camp McGee which is a southern section of the Avondale Reservation near Clinton, Louisiana. It was really cold - in the lower 30s at night. I need to invest in new socks.

Mardi Gras

Well, Mardi Gras has come and gone! It was a little chilly, but no parades were rained out and Mardi Gras day was warm in the sun. Here's the 2016 Mardi Gras album, images from a few of the Lafayette parades:

Slide Scans

My grandparents were involved in New Orleans Mardi Gras for years and there are several slides of their trucks and costumes and crowds. These are a couple of favorites. The kid on the street sign at Canal and Basin is from 1967 and the photographers are from 1972.
