Newaygo State Park, MI from Joshua M.
Joshua M.'s Review on The Dyrt:
▶︎ Hamocker's Paradise
This site turned out to be a diamond in the rough. Due to our lack of planning and seeking reservations, Newaygo State Park was one of the few campsites with short notice availability. As we entered we were greeted by spacious plots with enough treeline between them to cover up even the loudest of snorers. We took the next few minutes mapping out our perfect hammock setup. With so many options, we settled on our spots and built up the rest of camp.
Nestled in and ready to explore, we walked to the edge of our site to the head of the beach trail to check out what we had gotten ourselves into. Less than a mile hike later and we made it to the 'beach front'.
It wasn't much. The shallow buoyed off swim area was sandy, yet immediately upon passing the buoys we were met by very thick seaweed. Nonetheless, the view was breathtaking, there are plenty of lookout points over the lake to spend quiet time posted up in a hammock reading or whatever else you do in a hammock.
Nighttime came and we were around the fire. We read that quiet hours start at 10:00 so being conscious of the expectations we kept our conversation at a low level and had light music playing from a phone. Around 11:10 a park ranger stopped by asking us to turn off the music, no big. But it seemed to us that no music after quiet hours should also be a part of the rules. All in all, we had an amazing weekend and we're all looking forward to our next weekend spent here. Thanks, Newaygo State Park!

Japan's crazy 'rollercoaster bridge' Eshima Ohashi 埃希马大桥, 江島大橋
Terrifying: Eshima Ohashi Bridge in Japan looks more like a rollercoaster than a bridge
This terrifying 'rollercoaster bridge' forces drivers to navigate down a steep decent so ships can pass underneath.
Facts about the Eshima Ohashi:
★ 1,446 meters long
★ 250 meters of continupus concrete in the center (the third longest Ramen bridge in the world!)
★ 6.1% grade slope on the Shimane Prefecture side
★ 5.1% grade on the Tottori side
★ The bridge needed to be high in the center to allow large shops to pass under.
☆ From the Shimane side, you can get the optical illusion view at the end of the street by the sea.
☆ If you have a good telephoto lens, go even further to the other side of the sea for a better shot. (Map below)

Star-Spangled Spectacular Air Show - U.S. Navy Blue Angels (Part 1)
The Hanover Street Bridge turned out to be a great location to film the Blue Angels as they flew directly over us on several occasions. Initially I was further down the bridge towards MedStar Harbor Hospital for the first half of the show then moved towards the opposite end of the bridge after noticing the aircraft preferring that side resulting in slightly better footage.
The Star-Spangled Spectacular Air Show featured precision flight demonstration acts from the U.S. Navy over a one-and-a-half-hour period between 2:00 and 4:00 PM on September 13 and 14. The featured act was the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. The air show took place over the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River.
Blue Angels Demo Team
The Blue Angels are the U.S. Navy‘s flight demonstration squadron. The Blue Angels team was formed in 1946, making it the second oldest formal flying aerobatic team (under the same name) in the world, after the French Patrouille de France formed in 1931. The Blue Angels’ six demonstration pilots fly the F/A-18 Hornet, typically in more than 70 shows at 34 locations throughout the United States each year, where they still employ many of the same practices and techniques used in their aerial displays in 1946. An estimated 11 million spectators view the squadron during air shows each year. The Blue Angels also visit more than 50,000 people in a standard show season (March through November) in schools and hospitals. Since 1946, the Blue Angels have flown for more than 260 million spectators.
