A little oasis at the base of the Egan Mountains; this little pond is fed from a geothermal hotspring, and stays warm all year, even as the landscape all around is frozen and dry.

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.
