Continuing from Some Of My Favorite Moments from 2010… Where to begin, it would not be possible without YOU! Thank You to those who have kindly subscribed and clicked through to my blog this year. A blog is nothing without readers, those who hike with me via my words and photographs on Hike Our Planet this is dedicated to you!
A special Thank You to my beloved husband Rick who puts up with my
time away hiking and photographing the beauty of Arkansas.
2011 was filled with wonderful moments along the trails in Arkansas. I created more videos and became more adept at capturing creatures with my new camera and lens. I visited two new parks (for me) and hiked many new trails. Snow fell, leaves sprouted, wildflowers bloomed, heat sizzled and autumn painted the trails. In November 2011 I celebrated the 2nd anniversary of my Hike Our Planet blog. Added 40+ new videos to my new YouTube blog Channel Lee Hiller Designs Photography. Videos included a series for Photographers For Japan to aid Mercy Corps with Japan earthquake/tsunami relief. Lake Ouachita State Park’s Caddo bend Trail was hit by a tornado so sadly the trail won’t reopen until late 2012 (hopefully).

It is hard to believe its been just over 2 years and what started as a fun hobby is now turning into a very visible entity. When I observe art, photograpy, etc I wonder, especially if I’m close to the person if it is “as good (or bad) as I think it is. I knew yours was good, no great, but not that many had yet seen it; and, you were still honing your craft. Now, everyone knows a Lee Hiller Photograph c2011 when it appears. The photos are gorgeous and so are the licensed products at LeeHillerDesigns.com. I’m very proud of you and honored to have “tagged along” on numerous hikes. It has become a passion for me too; the hiking, nature, etc. Love ur LH Rick x0xx0
