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.

    He’s a beauty. Excellent capture.

  • Thank you, Bunny! He is very unusual-looking, for this area; being large and buckskin. I sort of wonder if he isn’t a feral ranch horse. The local herd could sure benefit from some fresh genes.
