National Parks Under Attack
This Web site doesn't like to take political stands, but now it is necessary.

The current administration wants to reduce the size and number of National Monuments and allow oil drilling and mining in National Parks for the first time since the system was established. If you prefer trees and streams to oil wells and pipelines, contact your representatives in Washington NOW and tell them to protect these Crown Jewels of America.

Places Earth extends sympathies and hopes to both the people fighting to restore their lives in Puerto Rica and to those who’s lives have been taken or disrupted by the shooting in Las Vegas. Also to hurricane victims in Texas, Florida, and other areas of the Gulf region. Also to the fire victims in California. So many disasters in short time, all made worse by climate change.

State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

Places Pages

These pages are a collection of words and pictures of places on Earth, occasionally places that no longer exist. This site is not just a collection of photos, but also information about the places. These pages sometimes include drawings, maps, directions, and hours, all to help you find places to visit and inform you of why these places may be of historical significance. Because these photograph are used for reference for design work, they often include details.

Road Trips is a collection of travel articles.

Please note: This web site was launched in early November 2004.
Its sister site www.klimages.com launched in late November 2004.


This web site was created for non-commercial purposes, for your enjoyment and education, and to help you plan your own visits to these sites. Occasionally I am contacted to sell an image. Should you wish to buy a larger copy of any of these images, for personal use or display, to use in publications, or for research purposes, please visit Kenneth A. Larson Images. Please note, not all images are available for sale. Many of the sites shown in these web pages prohibit photography for commercial purposes. Therefore, while I can show these photos for your enjoyment and education, and to help you plan your own trip, I can not sell some photos. I can charge an hourly research fee and costs. Also note that occasionally a photo is not of sufficient quality to sell because of a focus problem or unsteady camera. These photos still look acceptable at low resolution for this web site, but would not look good enlarged. If you need a photo and the quality is sufficient and I am not restricted from selling the image, then specifically note where the image is (web page and location on page) and subject, and contact klimages.com.

To order a photo, visit Kenneth A. Larson Images for terms, prices, and ordering information. Then send an e-mail describing the web page the image is on, subject, image location on the page, description, and caption. If in doubt, I will e-mail you a thumbnail copy to verify. This may seem a bit cumbersome, but the photos on these pages are not generally offered for sale.

Select images are specifically included at the Kenneth A. Larson Images web site. You might check these pages first.
