A trail runs down into the hoodoos as as the sun rises over Bryce Canyon National Park. This was taken sitting about halfway down in the canyon looking over the rock formations and trees.
While traveling the back roads of Kansas I am always looking for old houses and barns to photograph. This abandoned house sits a few miles from where I grew up. It sits inconspicuously on a hill hidden by trees from the highway that runs behind it that is less than a mile away. These old homes have so many stories tucked away in their walls and I am always challenged to tell their story. This was a late spring day just as the sun was setting and a storm was moving in.
I took one of my spring trips down to Shiloh National Military Park a couple of weeks ago to see the new eagle chicks. There are two eaglets this year. I did not see them, but their mother sat on this limb for a long time protecting her nest and her young. Witnessing amazing animals like bald eagles in the wild make spending time in nature worth every minute.
This is a closeup of the formations at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. I visited Yellowstone in 2012 and stayed at the hotel at Mammoth Hot Springs. My typical morning walks were up to the springs and around the wood walking trails. This is just one of the many geothermal formations that Yellowstone has and is constantly changing. When you visit look out for the elk. There is a herd that lives around the area.
