What the fuck am I experiencing?
Welcome to Undiscovered America!
Hi, I’m Zack Frank, and this blog resulted from the success of my Kickstarter project ‘Undiscovered America‘ which will allow me to photograph 50+ unknown natural landscapes across the United States that have the potential to become future National Parks.
In the future, you can expect from this blog:
- Posts about potential sites as I photograph them
- A podcast where I’ll be interviewing…
National Monuments #5: Agate Fossil Beds (Nebraska)
I’d love to hear of just one other person who has ever been to this park (or even heard of it for that matter). Agate Fossil Beds is a well-preserved landscape that exposes an impressive array of fossils, amongst plains, hills, wetlands, and grasslands in western Nebraska. It’s very secluded and you won’t end up there unless you really want to, but it’s worth the trip.
Pre-Orders for my book ‘Undiscovered America’ are now available for those who didn’t get a chance to back on Kickstarter!
National Monuments #4: Russell Cave (Alabama)
This park preserves the earliest known human settlement in the southeastern United States, an overhanging natural shelter that prehistoric American Indians used for housing.
Happy 4th of July/Independence Day! :-)
National Monuments #3: Fort McHenry (Maryland)
This year marks the 200th Anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner which Francis Scott Key wrote while observing the flag that flies over this fort. The official designation of this park is National Monument and Historic Shrine, the only one that carries that label.
Happy Independence Day. :-)
