    But sometimes you get to the end...

    8x10 carbon prints

    What is fun is that plug of gravel in the creek (two waterfalls) blew out the next year, and for a sec, I thought I had walked up the wrong canyon.

    When I walk the forests of the Cascade range, a volcanic region, I often come across these splits in the landscape.

    This is an old (andesite) lava flow that came down the sides of the long-extinct Goat Rocks volcano, now half-eroded away. It's near Mount Rainier.

    If you squint, you can see a melt-water stream splashing down into the darkness.

    It's deep, deep, deep! Drop a rock, and you don't here it hit for a few seconds. I remember wondering how many skeletons of landscape photographers might be down there.

    I was making my way up a very narrow slot canyon in Zion...not easy with water running thru it while carrying a 4x5. I noticed a smell, then came across maggots in the water -- decided not to go any further...could have just been a deer or bighorn that fell from above, and not a park visitor...but I preferred not to know and backed out.

    Here is a bighorn that must have slipped somewhere...(Zion, 5x7 pt/pd print)
