Northern Steptoe Valley – Eastern Nevada

As the day drew down, its golden light brought a brilliant golden glow to the bright yellow sage and rabbitbrush. The stallion looked at me looking at him … wary, but perhaps fully aware that an old human on two legs could never catch a young horse in the high brush.

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.
