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.

    WOW that looks cold Arla! Beautiful shot!

    Gabe :)

  • Thank you, Gabe!

    It was actually a few degrees above freezing, but if you were walking around in that deep snow, it would be cold.
