Alien Landscape

This is the otherworldly view towards the “Windows” section of Arches National Park. The storm enshrouded La Sal Mountains are in the distant background. If you look closely, there is indeed an arch in this image. (Turret Arch)

SEQUOIA GIGANTEA

Fabulous Redwoods. They’re just the largest living things in the world, amongst the tallest living things in the world and thousands of years old. That’s all!

This grove is within the Giant Forest area in Sequoia National Park.

Bad Timing

This is certainly a case of “Wrong place. Wrong time!” if I’ve ever seen one! Three hungry Peregrine Falcons give the surprise guest the evil eye.

Spoiler alert: No animals were harmed in this encounter. The falcons were fledglings waiting for their parent to arrive with food. You can see they all were quite aware of the squirrel but that was about as far as it went. The squirrel didn’t look worried and after this eye to eye to eye to eye moment, continued going about its business foraging for seeds.

Star Factory

Looking up from our world into the star factory that is the central core of our galaxy, the Milky Way. The universe makes galaxies. Galaxies make stars. The stars make planets. So it goes…

This particular terrestrial vantage point is near a rocky set of hills in Joshua Tree National Park.
