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 shot. The mountains of Nevada give meaning to the words “purple mountains majesty”. I grew up in Northern Nevada mining camps; your amazing work takes me back to those amazing times. Thank you!

  • Thank you very much, Jerryann!
    Indeed, I grew up thinking I wanted nothing more than to get away from here … coming back after 30 years away I see with new eyes. :) ♥

    What is the tripod shaped thingy in the field?

  • It is some sort of research device … they count the blades of grass inside them … things like that. Some of these have been out there for decades; I don’t know whether they are still being checked, or not.
