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! He was such a cutie! I hope I can find that band again, this spring. There were two babies with them, last year —I can’t wait to see how they are doing. :)

    Hi Arla, Nice to meet someone else that chases wild horses. I was just in Rock Springs, Wy, and spent several hours looking for wild horses. I usually get lucky in at least one of the places but not that day; seeing your great shot makes up for coming up empty handed!

  • There are a few of us on RB …. I’ll look forward to shots from your luckier days. Thanks so much for your comments!

    Sweet- he looks like he is peeking out to investigate. Great framing and capture

  • Thanks, KMorral!

    I might have been the first human he had ever seen that close up. He was curious. :)
