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.

    Awesome work, Arla. What a mysterious and glorious moment. Nicely done and the title works excellently. It’s also great you added another picture on a clear day for comparison. :)

  • Thanks very much, Arvy!

    I thought I had enough shots of the old barn to make a calendar, but I’m a few short. You will be seeing more of this old ghost … :D
