Frary Peak
At 6500 feet above sea level, Frary Peak is the highest point on Antelope Island, Great Salt Lake, Utah.
White Rock Bay
On this beautiful February hike, it was 72 degrees on Antelope Island, and I'm about 4 miles from the trailhead.

Another view of Frary Peak, the highest point on Antelope Island, Great Salt Lake, Utah.

Antelope Island
During a recent hike, I was forced to turn back as a herd of buffalo decided to take over the trail.
Antelope Island
A moment to catch their breath before a quick dash to the far hillside.

Antelope Island
It's been a long, cold Winter. The buffalo will shed much of their fur as the weather warms.
Antelope Island
No telling what direction they will head next. Best to head back to the trailhead before they reach the hilltop and block me from the shortest path home.

Frary Peak
Did I mention that there are some 700 buffalo on Antelope Island? And there are no fences. We've also seen coyotes who will sing along with you if can get them started.
Tucson, Arizona
Sahuaro on the Douglas Springs Trail, Sahuaro National Park-East; Tucson, Arizona.

Snowbasin Ski Resort
Every hike we stop at this one spot to take in the view.
Snowbasin Ski Resort
No rattlesnakes on this hike. By the sun angle, it must be early morning and the rattler's are still sleeping.

Utah Wild Flower
Despite being high desert, we have our wildflowers (or weeds) and even a few big trees in the higher elevations. Utah is the highest state in the union.
Minature Sunflower
The minature sunflower is the unofficial state flower of Utah as the sergo lily is impossible to find. The California sea gull is the state bird.

Summer Snow on Snowbasin
It snowed last September, so we took the tram to the top to have a look.
Summer Snow on Snowbasin
Summer in the valley; Winter in the mountains.

Tiny Life in a Fallen Tree
There is life starting even in the smallest of places. Spring time in the Wasatch Mountains has a few surprizes if you look.
Mom and Baby Moose
A very photgenic family out for a quick roll in the dust bowl to get rid of those nasty bugs. Maybe a shower would work better?

Desert Blooms
The Prickly Pear Cactus has beautiful flowers that turn into a seedy fruit. The fruit is made into jelly while the cactus pads are skinned and fried. Don't try this at home.
Picture Perfect in Snow Canyon
I have to wonder why this is called Snow Canyon as it is in St. George where it seldom ever snows.

More Moose
There were three moose that we caught while out for stroll. The third one, a female, is off to the left. We spotted two moose in the same location less than a week later.
Wasatch Fall
The Fall colors can be spectacular in Utah, but snow can come at anytime in the mountains.
Rainy Day in Vermont
Vermont 2008
Vermont 2008. It rained. And then it rained some more. And then it rained some more. The Brook at Chuck's
Vermont 2008
The brook that runs through Chuck and Peg's property in Westminster, Vermont.

The Green Mountains
Vermont certainly is green.
Wasatch Fall
One more shot of the Fall colors in the Wasatch Mountains.

Breckenridge, Colorado
A Waterfall in the Breckenridge, Colorado area. We would scramble through the boulders to get to the lake pictured on this page.
Springfield, Vermont
This "monument" was built in honor of the world premier of The Simpsons Movie, held in Springfield, Vermont, of course..

Breckenridge, Colorado
The lake at the top. There was another lake above this one, but I was stretched to go any higher. We are over 10,000 feet on our way to 11,000. The water was very clear and the fish were very easy to spot.
Breckenridge, Colorado
A gentleman who was resting on the side of the mountain kindly took our picture. We are on a rocky hillside here and scrambling our way through the boulders to the lake above.
