i‘ve been to new orleans many times when i was younger but never for mardi gras….until this year. it was everything i had been told it would be; pure chaos. here are just a few images from the trip.

a couple of the images are from my point-n-shoot**camera because i was afraid to take my big rig into the drunken debauchery at night. please excuse their poor quality.
