I had the opportunity to observe the total solar eclipse while hiking in the Wind River Range, Wyoming. The sky was cloudy in the morning before the eclipse and I had hiked 14 miles up in the mountains to view it! Luckily, the clouds parted last minute and I was able to view/photograph the eclipse. It is truly one of my greatest memories. 8/21/2017
A peaceful morning on Lake Agnes. The still water created a perfect mirror of the shoreline. Can you tell which side is the actual reflection? 5/28/2017
One can expect to see many lookouts while traveling on the superior hiking trail. Here’s a springtime view of Poplar River taken on my recent 3-day trek. 5/27/2017
A rainbow sprouts out from sharp pinnacles after a brief rainstorm in Badlands National Park. I took this photo from my campsite in Deer Haven just before sunset. 3/16/17
An 18-mile day of hiking led us to our destination of the day: Kearsarge Lakes. I just sat down for my freeze-dried meal when it started to hail. Luckily the hail was short lived and I was able to watch the sunset with my well earned dinner as the trout began their dusk feeding frenzy. Life on the JMT!
View of Kings Canyon National Park from my 2016 John Muir Trail hike. The photo here was taken just before reaching Bull Frog Lake on the way up to Kearsarge Lakes.
I took this photo at the end of a long and soggy day on the Superior Hiking Trail. It had been pouring all day, but the rain magically stopped as soon as I stumbled into my campsite. The forest came alive with golden sun rays pouring through the endless moss-riden trees. This trail is located along the Lake Superior shoreline of Minnesota and is well known to backpackers.
