talking_tree 45 days into my trip now. Please contact me on this thread if you wish to meetup. I would love to have locals in New Mexico show me around. I'm currently camped near the Northern outskirts of the Mescalero Apache Rez. 1d

talking_tree #NewMexico is my favorite state in the Desert Southwest. It's also one of the more economically deprived areas in the U.S. but I don't blame New Mexicans for this. That blame rests on those who are running the state. At least that's the impression I get from talking to locals in places like #Alamogordo; they tend to agree with me too. Half the storefronts at the local mall in this town are closed or vacant and one resident told me no one goes shopping there because everything is more expensive... Despite the hardships people face, I love the Land of Enchantment and the people. If crime is higher in one state over another, it's usually a reflection of the current economic condition of the region and not just individual communities. Every town I visit in NM seems to have a similar story... I think you have to go higher up the ladder to know what's causing this. 2d

talking_tree I'm in #OklahomaCity this morning and conflicted on which way to go but bad news of the tornado weather is most likely going to force me to punch a straight line for New Mexico instead of traveling to San Antonio and Austin like originally planned. A photographer is supposed to rejoice at bad weather but this perpetual downpour is keeping me from being able to work. Maybe I can drop in at Cadillac Ranch in the pan-handle of Texas and Palo Duro Canyon on my way!? This photo was shot near #Presidio #Texas 4d

talking_tree So I ventured to #AtlanticCity not to photograph the actual filming locations from #WalkingDead but to find actual places in the underbelly that actually look like the post-apocalypse without the props or messing with anything. They had to add things and subtract things in the AMC series... We'll see what I actually can find!? This shot is an abandoned house from the #gulfcoast of #Texas! 1w

talking_tree I feel I was prompted by the Creator to follow partially in the footsteps of Geronimo, The great #Chiricahua #Apache leader during my current journey. He fought bravely as a patriot until the very end when he was duped into surrendering to General Miles. He was promised two years imprisonment in Florida but the U.S. Government lied to him and broke their word. Geronimo spent the rest of his life at #FortPickens as a prisoner of war and was never allowed to return to his beloved homeland in Southern Arizona & New Mexico. I'm camped at Fort Picken tonight, and I plan to visit the site more in the morning. This tiled mural is located in #SilverCity #NewMexico. Long live #Goyathlay's memory. 1w
  •   downsouthtroutmouth Prisoner of war my ass. He was barely ever even in prison. He toured fairs and wild west shows until he died from falling off his horse on his way home one night. But regardless, i love your posts! 1w

talking_tree I spent the morning networking with the #Louisiana #Chitimacha Indian Nation. I met some #Choctaws on tour there from #Mississippi. I plan on following up with them on my trip through Mississippi. I'm continuing onward to #NewOrleans. Part of this project for me was to network with the right communities... 2w
