Among Giants

Yellowstone’s northwestern region is full of landscape beauty and wildlife.  The green rolling hills are splendorous and sprinkled with colorful evergreen forests, cottonwoods, and aspens. At the same time, it is common to see large boulders, rock formations, and layered cliffs.  These are remnants of years past, formed by either glaciers, volcanic activity, or a […]

When in Rome (um, I mean Wyoming)

Those who know me well know I love to wear hats.  Ball caps, that is.  I have an old photograph of me in a cowboy hat when I was about 3 years old.  But aside from then, I can’t ever remember liking them or wanting to wear one. “When in Rome,” as they say.  Brent, […]

Hidden Falls @ Cascade Canyon – GTNP

Hidden Falls lies at the end of a 3-4 mile Cascade Canyon trail in Grand Teton National Park.  It’s very difficult to capture an image here that shows the true scale of the 200ft. cascade since the area is fenced off for safety.  I’ll let the audio file help tell the story. We could hardly […]

Louisa and Paul – Slough Creek Trail

I started my blog with an image and soundtrack from Slough Creek.  It was a great hike for many reasons … spring flowers were popping, the light was really nice with clouds floating in and out, a sprinkle of spring rain a couple of times, a lovely pond and a meadow at our turnaround point, […]

Let’s Head South to the Tetons

Carl, Brent, and I tacked on a few extra days to the front and back ends of the Yellowstone Workshop.  We spent most of these in the Tetons area. This is Mount Moran (camera right) photographed from Oxbow Bend Overlook with the Snake River in the foreground.  Oxbow is one of the most beautiful vantage […]

Summer at the Pool

This isn’t the most artistic image in the world, but it’s one worth sharing.  This is Grand Prismatic Spring, and it far exceeded my expectations.  I had seen pictures in books, etc., but had no clue how massive and beautiful it would be in real life. Yellowstone is full of geothermal features.  Much of it […]

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

This next image was taken from Artist Point, one of the most recognizable Yellowstone icons.  I’ve been to Yellowstone twice before this trip, but only for a day each time.  Artist Point was one of our brief stops along the days’ travels. Artist Point provides a perfect view of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.  […]

He’s My Brother

One of the COOLEST things about this trip was having my brother Larry there, along with his wife Judy. Back story:  Larry is 11 1/2 years older than me.  It’s an understatement to say that I really looked up to him and our brother Mike (12 1/2 years my senior) when I was a kid.  […]

Yellowstone Workshop Group

The June workshop group was fantastic.  We had such a wide variety of people:  Full-time pro photographers, corporate employees, entrepreneurs, a state trooper, and a fossil expert.  Everyone was so flexible and eager to take in the beauty and challenges of each day.  Our days started with leaving the hotel at 5am.  We had a […]

Morning Hike – Slough Creek Trail

It’s only a few weeks after our Yellowstone trip (more details later), and I miss it so much.  One of my favorite hikes was Slough Creek Trail (pronounced “Slew” Creek).  It was the final hike of our trip, and it provided the perfect crescendo.  We hiked around 3 miles into the trail and 3 miles […]
