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.

  • Thanks, Gene!
    This was one of those moments that photographers live for – the scene only lasted about a minute before a sheet of rain came down and erased my vision of Nirvana.
