Desert Sunrise

Desert ridge lines at sunrise...I love it.

Storm Clouds

I was headed home on Saturday and was driving by Red Rock and I saw the light dance. I watched & waited for a few minutes...but the light remained motionless, frozen in time. The clouds move slowly by on their journey to the east....maybe next time

Route Restoration in the Rainbow Mountain Wilderness

It was a nice way to spend a Saturday working for wilderness and making difference in the Rainbow Mountain Wilderness. It called for rain but all we got were big clouds that floated across the landscape for the better part of the day...good stuff. Thanks to all of the volunteers that gave up their Saturday.

Dance of the Sunrise Man

Green Water Valley, Death Valley Nat'l Park

Here's one for the it's not Nevada file...but Death Valley is only 2 hours from Las Vegas. I had to go the Shoshone California to give a presentation so I decide to hang out at Death Valley for a couple of days since I was in the neighborhood. Furance Creek was packed so I headed out to Green Water Valley and I found the solitude I was seeking. I was captived by Funeral Peak...nice. I must get on top , but not this weekend.
BTW- Do these clouds look like jellyfish or is it just me.

The Stewardship A-Team

Ireteba Peaks Wilderness

Workin' for the Wild

Rainbow Mountain Wilderness
10 folks that care for the Wild gave up their Saturday to make a difference in the Rainbow Mountain Wilderness. The volunteers restored over 600 ft of decomissioned road that improved the wilderness quality of the area....future generations will enjoy the fruit of their labor.

"The richest values of wilderness lie not in the days of Daniel Boone, nor even in the present, but rather in the future."

–Aldo Leopold
