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 […]

Last year’s was spectacular, with my puppy Anna and I getting out to do more than a trail a week between the end of March and the end of October.

The Landscape of Middle Earth

One of my favorite landscapes is from Mt. Sunday in New Zealand. Most people know this best as Edoras in Rohan from the Lord of the Rings movies. Amusingly enough, that’s not all it was in the movies; if you look closely you can see Helms Deep wasn’t all that far of a march after […]

The Irish Coastline

The dramatic Irish coastline is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. From cliffs to massive boulders to hexagonal columns at the Giant’s Causeway to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, the place is stunning. And after a number of years, I’ve got a good itch to get back, bounce around the island seeing some sights, […]
