Utah has diverse topography ranging from the canyons of the Colorado Plateau to the mountains of the Wasatch and Uinta ranges and the arid salt flats of the western region. Utah is a great place to find reptiles and hidden in red rock canyons are a variety of colorful wildflowers. View the gallery..
These photos were taken by a friend shortly before she passed away on a mountain road seven years ago. They were taken at Mount Evans. She died not on Mount Evans, but nearby.
A few things have me thinking of her sad death this week. But Heather, you are not forgotten and I’ll always remember your kindness.
Just found this guy crossing my driveway and managed to get his photo before he got away.
No state can compare with Alaska for wildlife. In this huge state where wilderness still reigns supreme, the challenge is more about traversing the wild interior than it is about finding nature. The other challenge is that while a plethora of wildlife might be visible, it is often at a GREAT distance. The more powerful the zoom lens, the better. View the gallery…
I spent a couple days in the Smoky Mountains which was enough time to see some of the wild animals and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage of this spot of the Appalachians. With abundant rainfall the Smoky Mountains are the most biodiverse spot in the entire continental United States. View the Gallery
The sunshine state is a paradise for wildlife seekers. Florida is where birds of every type can be found, and the coastlines, estuaries, marshlands, reefs, and woodlands are home to amazing creatures of every variety.
We’ve been to Florida three times in the past ten years and the Everglades and Keys are featured here the most. View the gallery…
On Friday, June 24, 2022 the planets were arranged in the night sky in order of their distance from the sun. From Mercury just below the horizon (from our location), to Venus, the Moon (standing in for Earth), Mars, Jupiter, and finally Saturn in a southeasterly arc.
Evan and I woke up early to enjoy the show on a relatively warm summer morning. Our reflector telescope isn’t quite as powerful as we had hoped when we bought it but we still could see Jupiter and its moons, the rings of Saturn (better than the image shows), and details of the surface of the moon.
