  • Questions for a Biologist

    A number (12) of little orange ant looking things were walking about on my cactus one May day in 2007.  Surprised at the sight of these new critters I photographed them in hopes that someday someone would tell me what they were. Just this weekend a biologist friend of mine “JD” visited and I finally […]

  • Mongollon Trail Blazer

    A days hike slowly comes to an end. After a trek up the side of the ridge in near-white-out conditions, comes a 10 mile straightaway through the continually falling snow. As the snow piles along the road and my boots become heavier I take a moment to reflect on my thoughts. Video currently located on […]

  • Fly Fishing.

    5 AM rolled by without anyone noticing. Then 5:30. Then four minutes later I woke up in a mild panic. I was suppose to be ready at 5:20 and I wasn’t. I paced a bit, looked out the window into the black night. Subtle porch lights created weak shadows across the street, otherwise there was […]
