Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    He would have been prized by the Native Americans. Very spiritual horse. :o)

  • Yes – He definitely has a presence about him. He was well aware of me, but moved with such confidence, as if I wasn’t worthy of disrupting his lunch. :)

    Oh my goodness….What a sacred horse! His markings are spectacular!

  • Thank you, Carla – I would love to be able to “read” the story in those symbols on his coat. :)

    He is absolutely steller….he is definately handsome…wonderful capture with him stairing right at you. Di

  • Thank you, trueblvr — Indeed, he wasn’t much moved by my approach, tho other members of his band made a deliberate escape into a deep wash, out of my sight.
