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.

    lovely capture. do you know what kind of butterfly this is?

  • Thank you, Anne!

    No, I don’t … yet. I’ll try to find out when I get back from my little trip. I can tell yout that this bfly – or moth – is tiny: about the size of a dime.
