San Juan Reflection

A look at the Ice Lake in the upper Ice Lake Basin. This is one of my favorite hikes in Colorado. I love the San Juan mountains.

Captured in Ice

I found this small rock captured in ice in the middle of Lake Helene in Rocky Mountain National Park. I can only imagine that the rock was thrown to its resting place by a visitor as the water was still in the midst of freezing. This was 30′ from the shore line so there would…

Bridge of Bertha

This is a view of the waters of Lower Bertha Falls as they pass under the Bridge of Bertha in Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada. I took this image from a rock that would have been underwater if the falls had been running at full force, making for a different angle of this…

Iceberg of the Mountains

The Iceberg Lake Trail in Glacier National Park will bring you to this beautiful teal pool carved out by, you guessed it, a glacier. The small chunks of glacial ice still clung to the mountain’s cliffs in early September and the icebergs floating around the pool had stunning crevices of blue ice. Normally hiking on a…

Punta Gorda Sunset

A warm Florida Christmas is a very different experience than the cold Colorado Christmas I’ve come to love and enjoy. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to drive around town looking at beautiful Christmas lights that adorn the neighborhood houses. When you have a canal in your backyard…the focus becomes the backyard decor, not…

Icicle Creek

Sometimes the memory of a place can stick with you even though you can’t ever physically return because you don’t know exactly where you were… This photo imparts that kind of memory. I call it Icicle Creek for obvious reasons, but it is actually on an unknown tributary of Ouzel Creek in the Wild Basin…

Fountain Pond

For lack of a better name this is Fountain Pond found in Fountain Park in the little town of Fountain, Colorado… as far as I know there are no real fountains within the city limits. I like images like this one because they are a reminder to me that beauty can be found all around…

Nevada Fall

This is Nevada Fall, located on the east end of Yosemite Valley. It is a strenuous 5.4 mile hike up 2000 feet to the top of the Fall from the Happy Isles area, along the Mist Trail. This is the second waterfall along the trail. You’ll need to hike past Vernal Fall to get to this picturesque spot….

Glenwood Canyon Waterfall

As you approach the Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon, you will see this stunning waterfall just to the right of the trail. It is a simple cascading waterfall, but very beautiful, especially with the green moss and old tree trunk.

Hanging Lake

Glenwood Canyon is known for being the most picturesque landscape along the Interstate Highway system. Few people know that the canyon is home to this beautiful Hanging Lake. In fact, exit 125 off of I-70 (only accessible traveling from west to east), was built solely for the purpose of creating access to this hike. It is a beautiful,…

Glacier’s Iceberg Lake

Glacier National Park, in Montana, is home to some of the most stunning landscape in the lower 48 States. I first traveled through this natural wonder when I was 19 while on a road trip from Georgia to Alaska. We only had a day to spend driving through the park, but I swore that I…

Land’s End Sunset

Sunset over Land’s End in Cabo San Lucas. This is the last bit of land on the tip of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico.
