Welcome, Summer!

Ironically, as summer officially arrives, a cold front is passing through the Intermountain West – bringing with it a chance of snow flurries at higher elevations! Nothing like a little snow to begin the season. I was over in Grand Teton National Park with my camera last week chasing the stormy skies which were forecast. … Continued

Ambassadors From Another Time

|

That’s how John Steinbeck described California’s giant, spectacular redwoods. “From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.” The tallest trees on earth, coastal redwoods … Continued
