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.

    Beautiful. Reminds me of my life as a young bride when my husband and I ran a team of fifteen horses around Cardrona, near Lake Wanaka in Central Otago in New Zealand. Those were the days.

  • Sounds like pure romance – and saddle sores!
    I hope it brought a smile. ;)

    I was thinking it had something of a “Lonesome Dove” feel to it.
