Spotting Wildlife in the Tetons and Yellowstone

We saw so much wildlife in the Tetons and Yellowstone, that my girlfriend and I started naming the animals. No, nothing like Bob or Susie. We created fun names – at least we thought so, laughing as we pointed and shouted them out throughout the trip – and a whole bunch of great memories. Here […]

Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic

I’ve not been able to see Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic either of the previous two times I’ve visited the national park. The parking lot for both the boardwalk and the trail to the overlook were¬†way too packed, and there was too much else to see and do for me to sit and wait for a spot […]

The Louvre at Night

My father insisted that I wouldn’t be able to get a good nighttime shot of the Louvre in Paris, France when we were there together six years ago. In my stubbornness, and without a tripod, I insisted otherwise. Not until we got home weeks later was I able to see the photos, since I did […]

In celebration of Earth Day – which is today, in case you weren’t sure – I’d like to share some of my favorite photos from around the globe. Since I’ve been fortunate enough to set foot on all seven continents, I’ll do one for each. In no particular order, here they are – starting with […]

Climbing the Stairs at the Great Wall of China

Just ask the Mongols; climbing the Great Wall of China is no easy task. I did it twice, though, on my trip to Beijing. Once at Badaling, which is the section all of the tourists seem to go to – and it shows with a carnival-like atmosphere – and out to Simatai, which is pictured […]
