Sequoia National Forest

8930864C-F932-4EA7-BEFB-85BD9D6D94D5.jpeg The Sequoia National Forest covers a very large area with places for everyone to enjoy. I visited my son who lives near there, so we decided to hike the area. There are many campgrounds and over 1.000+ miles of hiking trails and many rivers, rapids and stre...

Once A Town, Now An Island Under The Sea

This island lies off of Jeremy Poi...

The Endangered Monarch Butterfly

monarchbutterfly.jpg Last year I found a single Monarch Butterfly chrysalis (silk mat from which they hang upside down) on the corner of my house. I made a simple cage around it to try to save it from being eaten. After 2 weeks, it started to get a lot colder outside and I knew if there was any cha...

Haleakala National Park, HI

haleakala1.jpg haleakala2.jpg The first thing that you need to do is plan for any type of weather as it could be very warm or very cold... and both during your time spent on the Haleakala Crater.

Hiking The Grand Canyon On The North Side

grandcanyon1.jpg grandcanyon2.jpg You don't have to be an experienced hiker and hike all the really tough Grand Canyon trails to have a great time at the Grand Canyon.

Hiking Canyonlands - The Needles

canyonlands2.jpg canyonlands1.jpg Getting to the start of hiking Canyonlands is a trip itself. You think you are there when you enter the road to Canyonlands, but don't be so sure as there still is some distance to travel by car to arrive at your starting place for your hike. Plan way in advance fo...

Circled By 2 Coyotes While Hiking

coyote.jpg it was a gorgeous day hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park as I was on one of my favorite private trail that very few people know about during the crowded summer season.

White Crowned Sparrow

whitecrowned.jpg This White Crowned Sparrow was a pleasure to photograph as the bird did a number of poses before capturing a bug. Even after capturing the bug, the bird was cooperative. Highly unusual as I've been photographing birds for quite a while and no bird was ever so cooperative. It's one ...
