Help protect and preserve our parks! In honor of National Park Week (April 21-29), between now and April 30th ALL proceeds from the purchase of my “Home of the Sasquatch” shirts will be donated to the National Park Foundation.
Perfect for hiking or casual wear, each shirt sports the name of a different national park and a silhouette of Bigfoot ambling across the landscape.
You can grab “Yosemite” on Amazon at the introductory price of $15.95. (Prime members who order early will be able to wear their shirts during National Park Week.) And you can check out the entire line at my Etsy shop, Sasquat Threads.

Flashback Friday to when there was still snow on the ground in Arches. This is the view from inside Double Arch! Yes it was a bit cold, especially as the sunset, but oh so worth it!
📷 “On The Road Again” at Lake Mead
For years Grand Canyon has challenged Artists to try and capture its’ scope. It’s a Herculean task, but I couldn't get enough of the layers of canyon, and all the narrow protruding ridges, whittled away by sand, dirt, wind and water over the eons.
📷 “Flames Of Dawn” at Lake Mead
Painting inside Snd outside it was snowing. What an adventure.
Jake - the best painter you could hope for. And what a sport - first time to the Oregon Caves.
I love how the depths of canyons out west get these different shades of blue as the sun sets. Of course this effect is magnified in the biggest canyon of them all, The Grand Canyon. Witnessing a sunset here is truly majestic, I would recommend it to anyone as a must see.
Can’t beat springtime in Zion. 🌻
Playing around with long exposure at night really makes you appreciate how much light availability there actually is, and how generally unaware you are that you’re on a giant rock that’s spinning at ~1,000 miles an hour. At a 90 second exposure, the trails of the stars as we spin past them start to become visible. .
Phantom Ranch glows warmly in the lessening light. It is the only lodging below the canyon rim, and can only be reached by mule, on foot or via the Colorado River.
◾️It was rainy and it was cold, but I couldn’t think of a place I would rather have been.
📷 “Farewell” at Lake Mead. In a week’s time I’ll be gone from Lake Mead and starting at my new duty station. I’ll leave my new destination a surprise 😉 I’ll still post old photos from LAKE, especially until I build up a batch of photos from my new location. Seen here is my trusty steed at LAKE - present for nearly every photo I’ve posted. Long May You Run!
Fitting end to a spectacular day.
Grand Canyon. Sunset. Enough said. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Hard to do anything but smile when you’re surrounded by a double rainbow at sunset, post storm.
Thanks to @alexandra_abroad
for snapping this epic moment in Devils Garden, Arches National Park. Even got the camper in the background!
