When we walk though the fog, can we say we touched the clouds?

First frost tonight. Soon the pair of great blue herons that live on this pond will migrate south. Normally they’re shy and avoid people, but these days they move close to shore to hunt. If you disturb them, they get mad and squawk at you. They’re so statuesque and graceful, but they make this croaking sound that doesn’t fit the picture. It’s would be like Nicole Kidman having a speaking voice like Tom Waits. β€’

I love the mines by my home. Living where the gold and silver rushes were plentiful means these are all over the place. The snow gives them a new sort of beauty. It brings life back to these old structures. It's hard to believe that the family living in my home when it was first built probably worked at this mine.

From Ashes to Aspens! See the forest renew itself with Aspens arising from the ashes of the 2015 Lake Fire by Fish Creek in San Bernandino National Forest. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’
As a fire adapted species the Lake Fire inspired the rapid growth of the Southern most Aspen grove in California- just 2 yrs post fire it covers at least twice the area of the previous groves- and it is just getting started! #naturerules #lakefire2015 #aspens #southerncalifornia #fireecology #johnmuirproject 🌲

We recently returned from a week in the high country documenting the damage exotic mountain goats are having on fragile alpine plants. Read more at grandcanyontrust.org/blog #conservation #lasals #moabutah #nationalforest #mountains #coloradoplateau #fieldwork #hiketowork #utah

Hiked up Hawksbill this morning before dawn hoping to get the sunrise. What I got was blasted by 30mph wind when it was 40 degrees out and lots of dirty looks from the dog because I wouldn't let him play on the ledges. Sunrise was obscured by clouds. #blueridgeparkway #linvillegorge #hiking #camping #autumn #fall #blueridgenps #nps #nationalforest #mountains #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #nikon #wnc #pisgah #nc #boykinspaniel #boykin

Heading out to Smith Rock the other night we decided to take a more "off the beaten path" route figuring it would make the drive a little more worthwhile. Boy was it the right decision...an incredible sunset behind us to the west casted bone chilling colors on all 11,250 feet of Mt Hood as we sat trying to gather the right words to describe how we were feeling in that moment. The words never came as the feelings of inspiration and awe continued to take over.
