      it would be cool if it were like the 1920s and the train still actually went everywhere to all the little small boomtowns and the boomtowns still existed instead of being derelict

      I did not realize central TN (plateau TN) has such fine waterfalls until recently

      Is this Rock Island twin falls?

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        yes, yes it is
        there was a path along the bottom but there was caution tape blocking it, maybe it was flooded off when I was there so I didn't really get any closer than the bottom of the steps to it

        do you like TN?

            I looked up all the waterfalls in the area and Burgess seemed like not quite as nice (only had time for a few) and also looked like it was really hard to get to the bottom, maybe I'm wrong.
            I did Ozone Falls, Twin Falls/Rock Island, and Fall Creek Falls, all of which were great. It was hard to figure out in advance exactly how hard/far it would be to get to the bottom of each falls.

        NTA, yours is ridiculously low quality on PC. Pic attached was taken on a random ass stretch highway in central Arizona in February at 70 mph (with the window down in 24F temps, 75 inch snowpack higher up, 12-24 inches at highway level below 6k ft ASL, normal and is only the 5th snowiest region of AZ) from a shitty samsung with one hand (also horrificaly resized and converted to PNG and back to JPG again). I might also add that there are sights infinitely better than this everywhere in AZ in winter, let alone the west as a whole.

The western United States and Canada is Beleriand and the Westlands of Middle Earth. Places of power everywhere (not woowoo, actual scientifically documented magnetic and geothermal/geological anomalies, and the land is literally overflowing with rare gems and minerals), ancient buried lost or abandoned civilizations everywhere, huge, sparsely populated, exceptionally varied landscape and climates.

      I used to have favorable views of the west as a kid, mostly thanks to television and natire documentaries... but once you get old enough to go visit, you realize that it's just a big zoo/campsite. full of tourists, tons of them. unless you're hiking for miles upon miles upon miles to get away from even the wheeling roads, which most people are not, you will never not be near others. even the "hardcore" people just drive a jeep deep off the beaten path because so much of the west is wide open. not only that, but over half of the people who live out west in places like wyoming and montana are boomer transplants who grew up watching john wayne and decided to move out there back when it was cheap. lots of people wearing cowboy hats who have never ridden a horse in their entire life. it's like a weird combination or rural and suburbia, just more spread out. it also attracts California refugees(colorado has the most of anywhere) and richgay rv boomers. the only place that's really unique is somewhere like moab utah for example, and that's literally overrun with 4wheeling tourists. the west is definitely not "the frontier" anymore. a full tank of gas and 4wd will get you most places.

            My uncle was diagnosed with chronic lyme disease. He had to move to the city for better healthcare and also because it was impossible for him to take care of his own property in the woods because half the time he's a cripple. He also has a number of food allergies now. It sucks.

            That said, Lyme disease isn't a reason to be terrified of the East Coast. Even if you're bitten by a nest of tics, the likelihood of contracting the disease is slim. Still should take preventative measures and get checked out if you show symptoms. Most cases of lyme disease are curable and not chronic.

    I'm grateful for our four-legged gatekeepers. Did you know that unlike most cats that go for the throat, jaguars kill by biting through the back of their victim's skull? I wonder if illegal immigration is helping jaguars return to the US by opening gaps in the border fence and providing food for the journey.

    there is a reason that the poor shitty regions of mexico are the deserts in the north, while the prosperous cultural regions the ancients inhabited were the jungles of the south which attract tourists to this day. a lush jungle will always been far more beautiful and natural resource rich than the barren regions. why do you think the western half of the us isn't developed like the east aside from the coasts? because it's ugly and people didn't want to live there. it attracted criminals, cattle farmers, and indian reservations... that's it. there is a reason. who would brag about wildfires, dust storms, and droughts? kek.

      They banned using hounds to hunt bears. They still harvest 1700 bears every season via hunting. Its just in the shoulder WUI where hunting isnt allowed that bears become habituated to a human environment. Bears in Yosemite will run from you, in Tahoe they will not.

        The average mature mixed conifer forest canopy height in the SW US is 100-120 feet, with individual specimens over 200 feet. In parts of the west coast proper (CA, OR, WA) the average is over 200 feet with individual specimens well over 300 feet tall in places. AZ and CA also produce some of the largest sycamore trees in the US and the world (mature specimens routinely over 120 ft tall, records at 160-180 feet tall and 50 ft + circumferences). Those two states also produce some of the largest Juniper (86 ft H x 40ft circumference CA, 61 ft H and 33 ft circumference AZ) and Cottonwood trees (102ft H 46 ft Circumference AZ, taller ones existing elsewhere in the same state) in the world as well.

            The entire eastern and central US has thinly heavily disturbed forests. If the US actually wanted paper products for cheap without deforesting landscapes they would switch to growing perennials on the great plains, Henry Ford almost did as much with hemp before Rockefeller shut him down. It's straight up just corruption, not need.

              no, there's a real mix of fricked up forest and not, it totally depends on if the owners of the land let people cut the trees or not, there's very little first growth, but there's a good amount of well preserved second growth that hasn't been logged since the initial logging boom of the 1910s and 1920s

                I've been all over the east, almost every single canyon and forest plot has been harvested either commercially or privately in the last 150 years. In the west, there are swaths the size of WV state that were never industrially logged. The tallest forests in Asia and Australia are also in low population density areas where industrial logging did not get a chance to set up. The east coast would have had trees almost comparable to some of the smaller giants in the west back in the 1600-1700s. And the same people that cut down giant redwoods in the west were immigrants from the east as well well after all the eastern giants were cleared out. Even partially logged but now mature stands of forest in AZ-NM-CO-UT have confirmed average stand heights of 100-120 feet and are younger than 160 years old. Give it a break for long enough, and it will grow back on its own.

                That get regularly chopped down within a couple human generations. Continuous disruption across the entire landscape (due to population density and different generations of land owners having different priorities) is why there are no true eastern giants anymore.

                the idea that the east is lacking in public land is silly
                coastal states, yeah sometimes, but like maine, nh/vt/ny/pa/md/va/wv/tn/ky/nc have a frickton of state forest state park and other various forms of public land its just not all under one auspice or name

                No it means the actual outdoors, no development, no roads, no (official) trails. National forest that isn't designated wilderness in the west is wilderness by European standards, and is has tracts of uninhabited forest and mountains the size of Pennsylvania state as a whole, in almost every single western state. Some peaks don't see humans for years, and most of it does not have sensor data.

                >if I double down on my opinions being facts it will be true
                Incorrect. You can prefer one environment, and other anons can prefer another. Your preferred environment isn't superior just because you prefer it, no matter how pretentiously you try to phrase things.

                You can objectively measure the qualities that make the outdoors great, beyond subjective analysis. People seethe and cope when this is brought up.

                >Your preferred environment isn't superior just because you prefer it
                Exactly, and this applies to moronic sheltered eastoids more than anyone else I have ever encountered, bongs a close second. And your over developed hills are not in fact, superior as unmolested wilderness or tracts of undeveloped forests and mountains the size of entire states. You can watch eastoids and bongs cope hard when confronted with facts, but the truth is the ywill never fathom it until the frick off into unmolested outdoors offtrail for dozens or hundreds of miles. And another side of this is that the west also has almost every single biome on Earth which can sometimes be compressed into gradients of a few miles.

                Again, no perspective eastoid. Outings can be objectively graded beyond the subjective tastes of an individual. And when it comes to mountains this is extra true. A bong or eastoid with hills as their only reference point for mountain outing are incapable of fathoming real mountains until they visit them. They are incapable of expanding their perspective beyond their limited paradigms.

                The fact is that they can be objectively graded in multiple factors. Subjective taste cannot judge anything objective (observable).

                Opinion

                Qualities which are base to everyone's perception with a good, or a bad, characteristic. Because you live in a dualistic reality simulation there are objective facts which can be observed by all subjective observers, and that is what we call reality. For example, people do not like intense pain, some people might tolerate it or even seek it out but it is not a pleasurable feeling or experience. Geography is even more simple to view and analyze because it is immutable, it is objectively there for any observer to see and experience. The western United States is objectively one the most diverse and beautiful and even least populated places on Earth and the eastern United States cannot even begin to approach the level physical geographical, climate, and biological diversity of it. To even attempt to compare them on equal terms is the peak of ignorance and to attempt to elevate the east over the west in any of those regards is the peak of both ignorance and arrogance.

                The base state of your experience of reality is through the perception of consciousness. This is not simply your mind, nor is it simply your physical body. Who are you? You can start with all the basics and form your own perception of yourself. However the base and truest form of yourself is consciousness (some call it information, spirit, soul whatever, it's the same thing). No matter how you try to perceive yourself as separate from anything else, you are never separate from anything else. Your only vehicle for navigating the soup of realistic potentials and constants and paradigms, is through the vehicle of your perception. One is also able to directly experience extra-sensory perception and collective perception.

                When you consciously focus on something you reinforce or create it, and reality reflects it back unto you in various forms out of sequence with time. Time itself is coherence of events and experiences at separate instants, a sequencing of experiences occurring at infinitely separate moments of the here and now. You cannot objectively experience or consciously interact with the past or the future, but you can choose consciously interact with and even change the present, which is logically connected to past here and nows and will effect future here and nows. The only moment in which you exist in physical reality, is right now, the infinitely thin moment of the present. In non-physical reality you exist infinitely, instead of your perception of self being gone, your perception is everything all at once. Everything interacts with everything else. There is no such thing as nothing, as nothing encompasses an infinite state of potential, which is exactly the same as everything (an infinite state of potential). A system in which everything interacts with everything else with undefined (or infinite) boundaries actually behaves like a closed system (all known energy and light interacts with everything else).

                -Wave function characteristics of reality (in all observable phenomena and hypothetical mathematical inquiries)
                -Paradigm of limitation of the observable and mathematical universe (a spatially finite isolated or closed system can experience infinite mathematical variations of non-repeating sequence phenomena, ie infinity in a box or some put it, hard drive, that is you can have infinitely many sequences and forms that never repeat in a spatially finite reality and experience them objectively through the coherence of sequence, which is time)

I don't watch news, sports, take drugs, care about money, care about anyone's perception of me, or seek gratification. And that doesn't make me better than anyone else. If people get triggered by me, it's just a reflection of something they don't like in themselves or in their own perception of reality. I've also said that there is beauty everywhere, on top of saying that in objective observable reality there are places that are also objectively better than others (by having more objective new experiences available to the individual).

                and point to me where in objective reality consciousness is precisely and tangibly. God exists (or whatever else you want to call it), mathematically, objectively, subjectively (within and through you), and tangibly through everything that exists (that which you can and cannot see). People have known about this and much more complex and other enigmas that cannot be pierced by the logical mind for a long long time (subjectively and objectively).

                >in objective observable reality there are places that are also objectively better than others (by having more objective new experiences available to the individual).
                If newness is an objective quality metric, then any single place is objectively worse and better for each individual based on their experience to date. And the objectively best places change over time based on novelty. This is not how objectivity works. This boi blew a gasket

                Objectivity is not simply novelty or coherence of experience over time, it is experiences shared by the collective and that the subjective can interface with, that which can be observed by everyone. In physical geography this is observable as mountains, topographic variation, biological and climatological diversity, human geography (population density) and so on. These are qualities that can be measured and observed by anyone. Certain experiences in consciousness are universally shared and objective and universally better than others. As eg to this, lookup the rice love-hate experiments, Emoto's water-ice love experiment. Separately, EMF preservation of biological matter from decay as well as EMF effects on human emotions. Your purpose in this reality is to gain experiences, and in fact, certain geographic regions and areas on the planet are better for this than others.

      This guy gets it. Some of us prefer one environment, some prefer a different one, and that's fine. Repeatedly babbling about how your favorite spot meets your personal criteria for "objectively superior biome" and insisting that it's the gold standard for everyone else only makes you look like a fool.

        Have you had comparable experiences out West such that you can judge? stradded the continental divide in a thunderstorm? seen a red dog being chased by a griz, skiing thru an open glade in Yellowstone on a bluebird day, watch salmon spawn in a redwood forest? seen a superbloom in the desert or foothills? watch the sharks from the cliff tops above the coast while Elk bugle in the background? just curious.

        >snow shoeing in the adirondaks
        Here's the thing about the west easterns cannot fathom. There's 6 feet deep powder less than 100 miles from Phoenix, Arizona every single February. You can ski in June in AZ now, and in cooler eras (post Ice age, and a recent pre-glacial permanent ice rebuilding event in the little ice age to c1700s) there were permanent glaciers year round in AZ. And contrary to the news, a cooler era is on the way again.
        > walked through bad weather on the presidential traverse
        Mountains on the norther nand eastern fringe of metro Phx, AZ experience 100k+ lightning strikes, 10-25 inches of rainfall in 60 days, and 100+ mph winds every single monsoon season.
        >and hit the smokies during the rhododendron bloom
        The largest super blooms in the nation occur in CA, NV, and AZ (in AZ they occur twice a year, spring and monsoons). And in the forested mountains and chaparral zones of AZ there are super blooms of hundreds of different sets of species every single month except for Dec through Feb.

        NTA. The key in the variety of the west is the recreation it enables. There’s world class rock climbing minutes from my house near a major metro. There’s good skiing well into May. This is obviously in addition to great hiking, biking, hunting, rafting, etc. that you can enjoy out east; however all of that is arguably amplified out west due to the abundance of public land that makes access easy for all.

        That access and abundance has also enabled a very outdoorsy culture. Even city dwellers out west tend to be more athletic and adventurous because chances are they moved to the region because of the outdoors.
