Apgar Lookout

Apgar Lookout Early 2015

With a drier spring, some of the early trails such as Apgar Lookout are opening up sooner than normal. While we still walked on a bunch of snow, it was amazing to get out on a perfect day! Hiking to Apgar Lookout has almost become a tradition of mine at the beginning of the season. […]

Emerald Pools

Emerald Pools

Tucked away at the base of towering red walls in Zion Canyon in Zion National Park are three lush pools called the Emerald Pools. The three pools are connected by a stream that can vary from a slight trickle to a torrent depending upon rain. The Lower Emerald Pool is a great, level, family friendly, […]

Hidden Canyon

Zion National Park is home to many slot canyons with an impressive one called Hidden Canyon inside of the main Zion Canyon.

Vulture Peak

North Fork Alpenglow

Went for a Sunday drive with my wife this past weekend. We left in the afternoon to catch a perfect sunny day and time it with the alpenglow that was sure to come. We ended up at Polebridge to capture the stunning pink light kissing the mountains. Some men say that they move mountains. I […]

I’ve been very pleased with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000. With a 1″ sensor, […]

Glacier Christmas Bird Count

Glacier Christmas Bird Count 2014

It’s that time of the year for Audubon’s 115th annual Christmas Bird Count. As if I needed any excuse to get out in Glacier National Park on a sunny day…. citizen science is always a great excuse. While the snow was really crunchy making it hard to hear and easy to scare birds away, we still […]
