A wall running through Shiite Sadr City in Baghdad. The wall was erected by the U.S. Army to protect an area from attack of the Mehdi Army, a Shiite militia following Muqtada al-Sadr, a Shiite cleric in the rank of a Sayyid. The wall is still in place and heavily guarded by the Iraqi army but inhabitants hit a number of holes in it or removed slabs. Iraq, January 2012.

Pedernales Falls State Park. Flowing over and around huge slabs of limestone, the Pedernales River can be turbulent. But most often it is tranquil, and a great place to relax and recharge. We are just 30 miles west of Austin. Come over for an afternoon swim or hike, or load up your gear for an overnight adventure. The river awaits! RV campground: yes, 30 amp only.
