Blue Ridge Parkway – Craggy Gardens Overlook

Today I returned from a relaxing weekend with my best friend Carl.  He moved north of Asheville, NC only a few weeks ago, so it was great to see his now home and experience a weekend of true mountain life.  He lives only miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so we did our fair share […]

Lake with a View – GTNP

“The lake and the mountains have become my landscape, my real world.”  ~Georges Simenon I admit, mountains appeal to me much more than lakes.  The combo, however, is hard to argue with.

Rabbitbrush Near Gros Ventre – GTNP

The skies in Grand Teton National Park change by the minute, and they often produce sunrise and sunset spectaculars day-in and day-out.  But, one of the other reasons I love this park, photographically speaking, is the breadth of textures from valley to summit.  The rabbitbrush covers much of the floor through the main valley area, and […]

Mt. Moran Turnout on Teton Park Road

Final morning in the park … and FINALLY had clouds for a change!  The Balsamroot flowers were coming on strong … a perfect foreground for a sun-speckled morning!

Yellowstone Grand Prismatic Spring

There are many iconic locations in Yellowstone, one of my favorite being Grand Prismatic Spring.  According to Wikipedia: The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is the largest hot spring in the United States, and the third largest in the world, after Frying Pan Lake in New Zealand and Boiling Lake in Dominica. It is […]

Hope Springs Eternal

Just a few miles north of Flagg Canyon we saw this!  See my previous post for the contrast.  Spring, popping through but not yet completely overtaking the snow.  Just inside the Yellowstone south entrance, much snow still remained in early June after a 700+ inch winter of snowfall!

Circle of Life – Flagg Canyon

North of Grand Teton National Park, just shy of the Yellowstone National Park south entrance, is  Flagg Canyon Trail.  It’s a beautiful trail that runs north to YNP along a fabulous river canyon overlook.  Last year this area was part of thousands of acres that fell victim to a forest fire.  One year later, the contrast […]

Spring Awakens in Wyoming

The famed Moulton Barn on Mormon Row in the Tetons never grows old (figuratively speaking).  It is classical and magical, regardless of season!

Dogwood in B&W

Project 365 – Day 102 I’m still loving the dogwoods while they last.  Their blooms will not be with us much longer, but for now, they rock!  They are like a cherished family member or friend  you only see once a year.  While together, you seek to maximize your visit and build lasting memories. Fuji […]
