The Mist

Hiking up and down the hills of Butano State Park led to lots of different climates in a short distance. This particularly misty section was beautiful and thick with a green covering on the floor of the forest.

Little Cottonwood Canyon

The rewards of skiing in Little Cottonwood Canyon are not only the fluffy Utah powder, but the sunset you are treated to on the way back down the mountain. Even though I was tired after a long day of skiing I made time to stop and appreciate this beautiful sunset.

Into the Fog

I don’t always give my photos the black and white treatment, but when I do I make sure they are spooky like these trees. What made this hike unique was the mix of sun and fog. I didn’t take many pictures of the sun, but these trees in the fog caught my eye.

Everything Green

I like contrast, and I like consistency. This time I went for a completely green color scheme.

Return From Old Baldy

A boardwalk makes the trip back down from Old Baldy a lot less sandy. As a kid I made the trek up this 93 foot high sand dune many times. Even though I’ve summited much higher places on earth since, this one will always have special memories.

The Teacups

I hiked the South Fork of Silver Creek in the Sierras today, and of course my camera was along for the ride. The water is high right now due to the huge amount of snow we have from last winter. This section of descending pools is called the teacups. The rushing water wasn’t very tea like, but if I try hard enough I can visualize layers of little teacups spilling into one another.


Stump Pattern

If this fallen tree could talk I’m sure it would have lots to say. I was more interested in the way the center of the tree had rotted away, and that the deterioration of the whole thing had created a really strong pattern!
