Alone at Delicate Arch

On our last trip to Arches National Park, technically our second time there. Last time it was dark, we couldn’t see anything and we weren’t able to stay as we were passing through. This time it was our destination! We were excited and wanted to see as much as we could. Delicate Arch is probably the most well known sight in the park and at the top of our list!

Sunset Over West Yellowstone

This image was captured in early July, just inside Wyoming near the West Yellowstone entrance. The boardwalk you see is actually part of Two Ribbon Trail. With sunset closing in, we didn’t have time to do this one. We were off to search for dinner and then a place to stay for the night that Read more about Sunset Over West Yellowstone[…]

Jenny Lake Trail

The longest hike of our long road trip was the loop around Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park. It started out with every single parking spot and some areas that weren’t, being filled with cars. So, as commited to seeing Hidden Falls as we were, we found the next nearest place we could stop Read more about Jenny Lake Trail[…]

Avalanche Lake

As promised in my post of Heaven’s Peak, the stunning view of Avalanche Lake as  you first see it on the trail. That is of course, if you visit during the summer. The photo of Heaven’s Peak was taken from the small break in the trees on the opposite shore (lower right of photo). If Read more about Avalanche Lake[…]

Prairies of Badlands National Park

For my entire life, I have lived in the so called, fly over states. And while they may lack the magnificent mountain vistas of the western states, there are still some beautiful places that can make you feel small in the world. This photo was taken in the western end of Badlands National Park. The prairies Read more about Prairies of Badlands National Park[…]

Grazing Bison

This image, like many I’ve taken was from the road through Grand Teton National Park. While I wish I’d spent more time composing the original shot, I think I was able to crop it decently. One thing I remember from a photography class I took back in high school is the rule-of-thirds. The grazing group Read more about Grazing Bison[…]

Heaven’s Peak at Avalanche Lake

One of the most stunning places that we visited during our trip to Glacier National Park was Avalanche Lake. It’s only about a two mile hike each way, but it is a beautiful place and even in early July, it was quite peaceful, if you go to the south shore. The view shown here is not Read more about Heaven’s Peak at Avalanche Lake[…]

Snake River Overlook

This image is of the Teton range at Snake River Overlook, in Grand Teton National Park. I’ve started my new format with this image, that was also featured in my last post, for a couple of reasons. One is because it is such a recognizable location, thanks in no small part to Ansel Adams’ iconic Read more about Snake River Overlook[…]

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

I wonder sometimes, whether or not, this whole photography and writing thing might take me somewhere. I love sharing these experiences with others and do pretty well in person, but writing it down is entirely different, as is finding an audience. I have much to do and much to learn, that much is certain. So, I’d like to embark on an experiment. As an engineer by training, this seems the most logical first step to understand and improve. I invite you to participate and am hopeful that you will invite others to as well.
