    Eagle In Alaska

    While hiking in Alaska had a close encounter with a bald eagle. Like most encounters with wildlife it lasted but a moment but will forever be imprinted in my mind. I was walking on a steep rocky path and was just going over a pass when a bald eagle swept by on a dive into the...

    In The Poconos..

    When I was a kid I would spend a lot of time in the Poconos since I had a great aunt that lived in the middle of nowhere. We had fires outside every night and often during the day as well. We had made troughs for the deer and we would leave bread, crackers, etc in there for them...

    The Rocky Mountains

    In 1981 I took the family on a camping trip to Wyoming and as we got through Jackson Hole the Grand Tetons seemed to just pop up from no where. This was the first time I had ever been to the mountains and the Tetons grabbed my heart and over the past 20 years I have been through...

    The Beach

    Who doesn't love beaches? It was only recently when I was gifted to cherish one of the magnificent views of Mother Nature. The clouds are kissing the mountains. The waves splash to lick my body and devour the whole me. The clear blue sky witness my joy, The sun beams to listen at...

    While Backpacking In Wyoming

    Very early one morning after a long cold wet night of trying to stay dry in a rainstorm I got up make a fire. Walking around looking for firewood in the foggy early morning I looked up and saw a large bull moose looking at me from across a small pond about 20 yards away. We were...

    Winter's Severe Beauty

    Winter's icy blanket creates a crystal cathedral out of ordinary woods against the clear blue sky.  Bright sunshine reflects like prisms on dripping icicles.  Vibrant red Cardinals herald the beautify of the frozen landscape as they deftly nibble pine cone seeds from...

    Snow

    I was 8, walking home alone from school as usual. It was snowing really hard, the vacant lot beside my home was cover in snow and fog. I was the only one there, walking on untouched snow, through a thick fog. It was like walking in clouds.
