150 Years – Happy Anniversary Yellowstone

Spend the night in a National Park. It’s not enough to drive through it at noon with the masses. You need to breath in the early morning air, watch the animals and the light move at dusk, and see the stars at night. If everyone did that just once, I am convinced our planet and every living thing on it would be better off. We protect what we love.

Yellowstone National Park marked its 150th anniversary on March 1, 2022. Below is a Yellowstone slideshow of just a few highlights from the summer of 2019. That was my first, but won’t be my last, visit to the surreal landscapes of Yellowstone.

Find some prints available on Etsy or contact me to inquire about a particular image and format.

Bridge City – Sightseeing at Home

While the last year has put some of our big travel dreams on hold, it has also offered a chance to look deeper at where we are. I know I am often compelled to take photos of every bridge I roam, but literally some of the best ones have been at home! Portland certainly holds true to its nickname: Bridge City.

This image of the Hawthorne Bridge has a place in my living room alongside iconic travel photos of Italy’s Ponte Vecchio, Bridge of Sighs, and Rialto Bridge. Now all of these favorite prints are also available in my Etsy shop. I have to say I was pretty thrilled that a recent customer shared my desire to be a tourist at home and is now displaying the Hawthorne Bridge in an impressive 20×30 right in Portland.
