Grand Canyon Chasing the Sun

2017-11-01T16:03:48+00:00

The Colorado River has been and is a major force when it comes to shaping the Grand Canyon, and yet the river is only visible from a few select points along the rim of the canyon. Still hard at work, the river has dug a deep channel and is often obscured from view by the [...]

Horseshoe Bend, The Edge of Autumn

2017-11-01T16:03:57+00:00

Standing on the edge of the Horseshoe Bend overlook 1000 feet above the Colorado River is a rush. The river, meandering below,  reflects the deep blues of the sky above as the first rays of the morning sun paint the distant canyon wall in hues of gold and red. At my feet are the first signs of autumn. [...]

Just down the street from us here in Flagstaff, Arizona, is an 8-year old boy named A.J., who  has spinal muscular atrophy. Being like many other young boys, A.J. likes to get out and explore, but being confined [...]

Grand Canyon – Electric Sunset

2017-11-01T16:04:51+00:00

Sitting on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Sunlight strikes the cliffs and warms the rocks as a gentle breeze spills over the rim into the canyon. In the distance is the faint sound of the rushing waters of the mighty Colorado River, still hard at work carving the grandest of canyons. It's moments like this [...]

Grand Canyon – Silence After the Storm

2017-11-01T16:05:18+00:00

Standing on the rim as a storm clears. A cool mist falls upon me as the warm sun sets on the distant horizon. The silence is interrupted only by the whisper of the wind howling through the cracks and crevices in the land of stone far below. Thank you to Arizona Highways Magazine for printing [...]

Virgin River Narrows in Zion – Radiant Canyon

2017-11-01T16:05:28+00:00

This past June I spent a day hiking up and down the length of the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park in search of  an "ah ha" moment. These are the moments that take your breath away. I was looking for not only a stunning location, but I wanted a contrast of color and light. The Virgin [...]

Zion National Park – Virgin River Narrows Rush of Water

2017-11-01T16:08:39+00:00

I'm back from Zion National Park in Utah where I spent a few days hiking both the Virgin River Narrows and the Subway. The temperature was hovering around 100 degrees, but the cool rushing waters of the Virgin River were refreshing. Here we have the Virgin River as it carves its way through the Narrows. Title: [...]
