  • Wildlife on Bowman Lake

    .....on the shore of Bowman lake early morning taking pictures of the sunrise when I catch movement to my right. Here comes the doe walking the shoreline grazing and drinking. As she approached I remove my camera from the tripod and step back out of her w…

  • Whitetail Deer

    One of the first things I notice when arriving at Bowman Lake campground was a male and female whitetails. After establishing camp I took a walk around to see if they were still in the area. The doe seemed much more relaxed around people and offered some…

  • Sea Life

    .....even a casual look at the inter tidal zone tells an observer that this is a densely populated community composed of a great diversity of creatures. It is a harsh environment but each of the hundreds of species that live here has found an area where i…


  • On the Rocks

    People are more important than things. Relationships are more important than any material goods you may acquire on the road to success. Without the love and support of family and friends in life, material goods are not of much use.

  • Cannon Beach

    Composed of basalt, the "needles" adjacent to Haystack Rock were formed by lava flows emanating from the Grand Ronde Mountains 10 to 17 million years ago. The lava flows created many of the Oregon coast's natural features, including Tillamook Head, Arch C…

  • River Bank Sunrise

    "She glides along by western plains, and changes her bed each time it rains." .......the river that carried Lewis and Clark across much of Montana is a trout-filled mountainous stream in its upper reaches and a broad, scenic prairie river in its lower t…


  • Old Barn

    ...The time has come for my groaning ox to drag my heavy plow across the fields, so that the plow blade shines as the furrow rubs against it. Not till the earth has been twice plowed, so twice exposed to sun and twice to coolness will it yield what the fa…

  • Lost Lake

    The Missouri River once drained toward the Hudson Bay, but that all changed with the arrival of the ice ages . . . and things in central Montana really got interesting when the ice reached the Highwood Mountains 15,000 to 20,000 years ago. There, the cont…

    Lost Lake sits at the bottom of the Shonkin Sag's most spectacular geological feature -- a 250-foot vertical drop over which an Ice Age ancestor of the Missouri River once roared.

  • Mountains in Motion

    At this distance the mountains are postcard scenery-beautiful, motionless and manageable. Up close, from the trails and pullouts, the peaks show signs of restlessness and wrenching change. Exposed rock layers tilt at crazy angles from the pressures of mou…


  • Blossoms on White

    In our part of the country, spring passes quickly. If you haven't been out for five days, you find the trees in bud. If you don't see the trees for another five days, you discover that they've put out leaves. In another five days, they're so green you wou…

    Spring slides in on her gentle breezes. The seasons are in transition and spring is in the air.

  • Spring Blossoms

    Spring has sprung and my mind has become alive once more to enjoy the beautiful world around us. Smile and truly enjoy the day. :)
