Here’s a photo I took while hiking into the Titcomb Basin of the Wind River Range. There were so many lakes to see along the way, each with its own unique view of the mountains! While passing, I always find myself pondering about how much I wish to return to camp at each lake and take in its unique beauty from sunrise to sunset. 8/20/2017
Here’s a bit of a tribute to my photographer hero: Ansel Adams. I took 3 exposures to form a brighter image with the morning light. The photograph involved a very precarious early morning climb down a slope with my camera/tripod which made for some good fun! – Enjoy
This photo is from a slightly different location than where Ansel shot his infamous Tetons with Snake river photo (trees now block that spot) but it’s very close. 8/27/2017
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.
Memories of a cloud-shrouded Mt. Gould from a few summers ago. I took this photo on my way across Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier National Park. A ferry boat took us across Swiftcurrent and another ferry at Lake Josephine which led to the Grinnell Glacier trail. Oh how convenient!
Here’s a shot from my recent road trip up to Grand Portage State Park which is located at the Northeastern point of Minnesota. My photo comrade and I hiked in a snowstorm in hopes of photographing the high falls. The views were spectacular along our hike with deep canyons, rootbeer dyed rapids, and endless rolling hills of trees and rocks.
