Yosemite National Park

"Yosemite," no other landscape in North America can generate as powerful an image of soaring granite monoliths and spectacular glacially carved valleys than Yosemite National Park in California. More than any other landscape, Yosemite is the setting that defines the Sierra Nevada and stands as a geographical icon for the American West. ............... more info

By arrangement I lead private tours of Yellowstone Park where I live all year long. Private one on one tours are packed with individualized learning and many get more out of a half day private tour than on a large four day group tour.

Grand Teton Private Photo Tour & Wildlife Safari
All year long, reserve a date, they sell out early

The grandeur of Grand Teton Park has made it one of the most photographed places in the world. The opportunity to harness multiple juxtapositional elements has drawn photographers for over a century since William Henry Jackson took the first photos here in 1878. The contrast of the sagebrush valley that morphs with altitude to the conifer forest then to the sub alpine terrain that accents the granite spires that tower over the Snake River’s Valley.

Grand Teton Park in Winter

A frosty sublime; winter in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton Park is a special time.  The snow showed valleys, and towering peaks create an ambiance much different from summer.  Gone are the crowds of summer, buried are the remnants of wildflowers, gone are the leaves of the deciduous trees, replaces by a carpet of snow and an exponential essence of wilderness. Crisp delicious air fills your lungs as you fumble with gloved hands to adjust your equipment to capture a frozen moment of alpenglow of the mountains reflecting brightly against the snowy white canvas of the peaks. .............More info
