The fire in the valley can be found at one of my favorite parks, the Valley of Fire State Park near Overton, NV. That fire is a torment of beauty, nature, wildlife and history.
In Search of Temples at Capitol Reef National Park
I was going on an adventure into the back country via off road driving in my Toyota 4Runner. To be even more specific, I was going to Monument Valley in the park to photograph the Temple of the Sun and the Temple of the Moon.
FIRST TIME AT BRYCE CANYON
I have now completed the BIG FIVE national parks in the Utah: Arches, Zion, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and now, Bryce Canyon. Without knowing it, I think I saved the best for last.
Eastern Utah – A Whole New World
I love to learn. I love to travel. I love the outdoors. I love to explore. I love to take pictures. I was able to do them all in abundance on a camping trip this week.
Best of June 2020
The best of my photos from June 2020.
Climbing Closer to the Summit
Today, Ann and I climbed up more than half way to 4.1 miles. We had a 2,100 foot elevation increase on this wonderfully beautiful journey on a day with perfect hiking weather. Another key milestone for today was the fact that we reached 9,500 feet of altitude on the hike. That is the highest I have ever been hiking.

Squaw Peak Overlook Back Trail
On May 1 of each year, Squaw Peak Road is opened back up for car travel. There are several trails that I have wanted to hike starting at the overlook.
