Winter is (Finally) Here!

After several weeks of 70+ degree temperatures, it was starting to look like Spring had arrived (in February??). The fruit trees are all in bloom, and the cottonwoods are starting to bud out, but it’s too early for that because there’s always a frost in March.

Today that all changed! It was raining most of the night, but it started snowing this morning!

Re: Radio Show Update

I’ve been listening to the radio station live broadcast, and for some reason they’re playing the golf show instead of Inside the Outdoors. I’m not sure why they’re doing this, but I’m a bit disappointed. Sorry about the mid information, I was basing my last post on their radio schedule on their website. No idea why they changed the schedule.

Anyway, those who did listen, or tried, I appreciate it and thanks for following my posts.


My Radio Interview!

Today something amazing happened! I was interviewed by Bob Grove for the radio program called “Inside the Outdoors“. We talked about Zion Lodge, Zion National Park, and the exciting things to do here throughout the year.

I was quite nervous because I haven’t done anything like this before, but it was quite fun. Of course, there were technical difficulties with the Internet connection. (What do you expect in a national park? We’re lucky to have email and basic surfing).

Anyway, the show will air this coming Saturday morning from 7:00 – 9:00 am Mountain Standard Time. (I think it’s +7:00 GMT, but don’t quote me on that). The link for the show is here if you want to stream it online.



One of the more anticipating activities in Yellowstone is to wait for a geyser to erupt.  Some erupt quite frequently, while others take a few years in between eruptions.  Probably the most popular and famous geyser is Old Faithful, because it erupts on a (somewhat) regular schedule.

I stood there in awe as the power of Nature erupted before my eyes.  Of course, I had to capture it on “film” (digital in this case) so I could relive the majesty of it afterwards.


The Tetons in Winter

After leaving Yellowstone, we were driving past the Tetons, and I saw this view so I had to stop.  The Snake River is in the foreground.  I also experimented a bit with this shot:  I discovered my polarizing filter, which I haven’t used very much.  Let me know what you think.
