Aspen Sky, City of Rocks - Idaho
In the upper Circle Creek drainage stand ancient aspen, grandfatherly and tall - reaching up into the autumn sky and grabbing all the sunlight and warmth that they can get.
Near the Wickahoney Road - Idaho
Across the basalt plateaus of the Owyhee desert are few roads. Here, the road simply disappears - as do many of the two-track trials in the southern Idaho desert.
Trumpeter Swans, Snake River valley - Idaho
Winter morning along the Snake River. Trumpeter swans drift along the calm waters of a tiny lake that straddles the cliffs near the river. The rounded boulders were created eons ago in a cataclysmic release of water that carved the Snake River canyon into what we see today. The rocks were tumbled along for miles under the massive force of the great flood, until they were deposited here in great quantities.
