Welcome to Pixel's Travels, a photo journal of great places to hike. Pixel is a Plott hound and all of his friends like to hike. That's why we call it Pixel's Travels. Check out Pixel's buddies. The first photograph was posted on January 10, 2004. Pixel was born on June 21, 2003 and he passed on September 10, 2018. His long excursions into the deep woods will always be remembered. As photo gallery technology has evolved, we have found it necessary to skip around various platforms to publish our images.
