Lion Dogs of No-tell-um Canyon portfolioIn the last week of 2009, I spent a few days with my Son-in-Law and 4 other houndsmens looking for mountain lions south of Hawthorne,NV. The photos in this portfolio were taken one morning when the storm broke and we put the dogs onto two set of lion tracks. Being with lion hunters is a special experience. They love their dogs, spent new years eve with them and caught up with a good lion in the Monitors. I wasn't there and am hoping to get a pic of the trophy to post.

Summertime in Hope Valley portfolioWhile the sun is baking us down in the Valleys with 100 degree heat, there is still snow up at 8500 feet in the Sierras. Everything is at peak bloom in the Sierra alpine zone. Though the fishing was disappointing at Red Lake this weekend, every small creek in the valley is chock full of little brookies that are a blast to catch. The panoramas in this portfolio are composite images that can be printed up to 40 inches wide.

Humboldt County Outback portfolioHumboldt County in north central Nevada exemplifies the wide open spaces of a land the Pioneers cursed and sometimes blessed on their trip west. Some folks stayed to wrestle a living from the harsh land, they know the beauty of the Great Basin the best.

The road to Hinkey Summit portfolioThis is a place I have returned to many times to capture the epic mega-bloom of Wyethia on the lower terraces of Hinkey Summit. There are always images to be captured. This year the blooms were a full month late and not of the magnitude of the shots I captured in 2006. Still it was a worthwhile trip, wandering through the aspens with my long time friend, Ed Partee, who now oversees the game programs for NDOW for Humboldt County. We will be back next spring to do it again.
