The best part of photography as a hobby is that you have to go out and spend time where the photos are! I have done a lot of backpacking and whitewater rafting, and have many photos from places that are reachable only by significant effort. But all the photos in this book were taken from roads or short, level walks of less than a mile - the major effort here was in developing patience, learning the rhythms of the seasons and the habits of wild animals and geysers. The process has guided my spiritual development, and has done much to shape my personal philosophy of living, which I share in the written portions of this book and dare to call wisdom. Time spent among these timeless mountains truly opens your eyes to wonder and your heart to God!
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.
