Welcome to Adventures by Burnsland!

A continuation of the original main Burnsland site, Adventures by Burnsland is the new home for photos and stories from our adventures.

Adventures can happen someplace far away, or they can happen at home, too, or anywhere inbetween. For us, adventures happen wherever we happen to be, and that makes life fun. Join along with us in the adventures of life!

Be sure to also see Art by Burnsland for interesting and unique art, and the Burnsland Hub for even more!

Rushing water pours over the rocks at the middle falls at Burgess Falls State Park in Tennessee, from our Tennessee Waterfalls trip. At Burgess Falls State Park, there are actually three falls and some cascades along the Falling Water River. The photo in the first Burgess Falls post was of the lower falls, which are the largest in height. The water that you see here in this photo is headed to the lower falls next.

The setting sun silhouettes the trees and evening beachgoers at Ko Olina Lagoons on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi, as seen during our 2023 Hawaiʻi Trip. As I look back at this photo, it is slightly difficult to believe that our most recent Hawaiʻi trip was almost a year ago. Much has happened since that time, but the memories still seem fresh in my mind. Hopefully, those memories will not fade anytime soon.

As you may remember from an earlier post, we saw the aurora borealis, or northern lights, from our home in Tennessee on May 10, 2024, as did many other people all across the United States. While that first post featured photos of the more “traditional” aurora borealis look, that look did not last all that long. However, the sky still put on a great show for quite a while. Have a look at these photos!

Rushing water roars over Great Falls on the Caney Fork River at Rock Island State Park in Tennessee, another park that we visited on our Tennessee Waterfalls trip. The horseshoe-shaped Great Falls was a fascinating sight, as the rushing water appeared to be quite turbulent, creating a loud roar as it fell. The falls were so wide that I could not fit them into one photo, so here is another view:

The aurora borealis, or northern lights, shine over the skies of Southwest Tennessee during their North American visibility on May 10, 2024. You have most likely seen by now that the aurora borealis was visible into the southern United States, thanks to a major geomagnetic storm due to solar flares and coronal mass ejections. That all sounds like I know what I am talking about, doesn’t it? Yes, the sun spewed out some plasma, which made its way to earth, causing geomagnetic storms.
