About the Book
Since 2002, I have published an annual collection of my photos, along with descriptions and stories. Originally published as "12+1 Neat Photos for People Who Already Own a Calendar", this expanded book format allows additional photos and text to supplement the main photos. This book is the fourth in a series that combines three years of collections into one volume.
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.
