About the Book
I invite you to share some of the many experiences I have enjoyed in Dinosaur National Monument. I have explored the monument for thirty years, including private float trips on both the Yampa and Green Rivers. This book is part nature guide, part travelogue, part photo collection, and part the ramblings of an old geezer not quite ready for the rocking chair!
I was born in Chicago, but have lived in Idaho for more than 35 years. This has given me the opportunity to explore the mountains and rivers of the American West. Whether hiking, rafting, or touring by car, I have always brought my camera along to capture the scenic wonders along the way. My home in Idaho Falls gives me the privilege of having Yellowstone National Park as my 'home field'. Yellowstone is a world-class site for both wildlife and geological features. The national park preserves the heart of the Yellowstone country in Wyoming, but the effects of the great Yellowstone volcanic system extend across Idaho and on into Montana. Many of my best photos and favorite memories originate in the greater Yellowstone region, and I hope to share them with as many people as possible.
