My two BFFs; Ruby and Mocha. I call them my Coco Puffs.

Both girls are rescues. Mocha (front) is Australian kelpie/Great Dane and who-knows-what-else. Ruby looks to be mostly chocolate Labrador Retriever. She was abandoned along a rural highway. I think she is about 3 months old, now. Mocha will be four years old in December.

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.
