2020-12-27 Sunday Camping in Guadalupe National Park

After spending most of December in New Mexico, I left The Land of Enchantment after a productive Christmas photo session with Scaled Quail at Bitter Lake NWR outside of Roswell. Last May, I left Texas to take care of business in California. The pandemic pulled the rug from under my plans for exploring many of … Read more

2020-12-05 Bosque and New Mexico Falconry

My first awareness of the art of falconry came as a young lad in elementary school when I read the Hardy Boys Mystery series and found the story The Hooded Hawk Mystery. Reading this book sparked in me, a fascination with falconry, and it led me to more research about the rigors and discipline that … Read more

2020-11-29 Sunday At The Catwalk

I left Arizona on Saturday, and drove over a series of mountain ranges, hoping to visit the Catwalk in New Mexico near Glenwood. I always enjoy the scenery on the road from Thatcher into New Mexico, especially the road north over the Gila mountains. I visited the Catwalk once in August 2003, but several times … Read more

2020-05-27 Arivaca Cienega

After my visit to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum on Tuesday morning, I drove south 170 miles to Arivaca. The route I chose was not conventional and I passed through Three Points where AZ-86 connects to AZ-286 and headed south towards Sasabe. I turned east on the Arivaca-Sasabe Road and traversed this rough, pot-hole ridden road … Read more

2014 Early August With Eastern Sierras Mammals

Birds were not the only subjects to entertain me while visiting my friends at June Lake. The eastern shore of June Lake by Oh Ridge Campground gave me my first meeting with Pygmy Rabbits, a bold Mule Deer and unidentifiable chipmunks (unless they are in hand and an expert is analysing). At Mono Mills, while … Read more

I’ve worked as a photographer with the San Diego Natural History Museum (SDNHM) since 2010 on a project called the San Jacinto Resurvey. The goal of this project is to follow an important study done 100 years ago by Joseph Grinnell, Harry Swarth, Walter Taylor, and Charles Richardson on the biology of the lands between the … Read more

2015-06-17 King City to Morro Bay

The reason I chose King City as my destination on the previous day was twofold. First I planned to drive over the Santa Lucia Mountains to the Big Sur coast on the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road, and the second reason was the hope of finding the Yellow-Billed Magpies, known to occupy the region. County or local community … Read more

2015-06-15 Eureka to Fort Ross

The images on display here were gathered while driving south from Eureka to Fort Ross via the Mattole Road in Humboldt County, California. The Mattole Road which leaves then rejoins US-101 south of Eureka and north of Weott in the ‘Avenue of Giants’ in Humboldt County California. It passes the westernmost point in the US … Read more

2015-05-14 Pinedale Explorations

I visited Andy’s shop the next morning before he arrived at work. His friend Ross popped out the side door of the shop and figured out who I was by the look of the Samurai. Andy got there a few minutes later and we all pow-wowed about places that I might want to checkout. They … Read more
