Northeastern Steptoe Valley – Schell Creek Mountains

In the life of every passionate photographer or artist, there is perhaps one day that stands as a defining moment in the course of their journey; when that person knows beyond their capacity to express in words, that they have been gifted with sight and opportunity that others have not. This was my moment.

When something as magical as this happens between man and animal, Native Americans say,
“We have walked together in the shadow of a rainbow”.

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.
