  • Looking toward Arches National Park

    Telephoto view, looking east from the Gemini Bridges Road outside Moab, Utah. One of the arches is even visible (outline), but I'm not sure which it is. The inset shows the road in the vicinity of where this photo was taken.

  • Shiloh

    At Washoe Lake.

  • Shiloh

    Shiloh turns out to be a Catahoula leopard dog, named from Catahoula Parish in Louisiana. (Unlike the other 49 states, Louisiana is divided into "parishes" rather than "counties.") We adopted her about 6 months ago after losing Jill. She has a much swe…


  • Washoe Lake

    Brimful on the first of May. The boat launching ramp is actually usable!

  • Full

    Washoe Lake on the first of May this year. This is the first time in the 30-odd years we've lived here that the lake has been brimful at the start of the season 3 seasons running. We're not complaining! The insets show slightly different views in the v…

  • Washoe Lake

    Brimful on the first of May. It's nice to have a lake again!


  • Contrast

    Washoe Lake during a spell of calm! Conditions were a bit different than a couple of days previously (inset). The largely snowcapped mountain just left of center is Slide Mountain in the Carson Range.

  • Washoe Lake

    During one of the many storms this spring.

  • Beaver tree

    A tree (probably a Great Basin cottonwood, Populus fremontii), gnawed off by a beaver. I guess the beaver must've stood on the lower sideways logs to reach the gnaw point! As I've mentioned, beaver have made a big comeback since being hunted nearly to e…


  • Shiloh

    On the trail to the East Fork of the Carson River, outside Markleeville, California just a few miles from the Nevada line.

  • Gemini Bridges road

    North of Moab, Utah. Looking south; La Sal Mountains in the distance on the left skyline. The divided highway is US 191 heading into Moab. The red bluffs here are underlain by the Triassic Moenkopi Formation. This road can be a bit nerve-wracking with…

  • Mama moose & calf

    Alces alces. Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, in the headwaters of the Colorado River off US 34. Telephoto view. The inset shows mama with the calf off to the right, on his way over for lunch!

    A couple of bull elk (wapiti, Cervus canadensis) with their antlers in velvet, taking it easy. Telephoto view. In the headwaters of the Colorado River, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, off US 34. These guys were part of a small herd, all relaxin…

  • Off Trail Ridge Road

    Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. The elevation here is about 11,700 ft. And yes, those white blurry objects in the field of view are snowflakes! I'm in a snow squall here.

  • Forest Canyon Overlook

    Off Trail Ridge Road (US 34) in Rocky Mountain National Park, at an elevation of 11,716 ft/3571 m (per the USGS 7.5' topo map). The view could have been better today! The signs ask people to stay on the maintained trail to protect the tundra. Looking p…
