Wildflowers Galore

It's finally warming up in the desert! And all of the rain we've received this winter has made the desert "explode" with wildflowers. Some of these would make nice prints. Please contact me if interested. I recommend getting out there...

Mooney Falls Comes with Risk

I was blessed to have a friend with an extra permit to stay at the Supai Village Lodge.  It was three days and a little less than forty miles of hiking (with a heavy pack, I might add).  There were...

Grand Canyon National Park’s Centennial

2019 marks the Grand Canyon's 100th year as a National Park. Living a few hours away from the South Rim made it easy for me to "drop in" and celebrate (and still be able to do it again)! If you...

Summer Leaving Can be a Good Thing

A busy workweek (aren't they all?) left little time for wandering in the desert this week.  Summer has now officially left us, which, for many, is a good thing in Phoenix.  I don't necessarily agree, but I understand the desire...
