May 11, 2011 - This is probably one of the most amazing places I have ever been. From the first moment I visited, I was hooked. I cannot help but stop there every time I am going through the area. To give you a perspective on the scale. The waterfall itself is about 180 feet tall. When you are standing on the edge of the cliff, you understand just how small you really are.
October 16, 2014 - This was one of the last photos I got of Mt Rainier from Tipsoo Lake before the clouds rolled in that day. I can't wait to get up there next year.
July 31, 2014 - Sometimes all it takes is being alone in a field of grass with nature all around to make you feel at peace. We often find our lives consumed with the hustle of daily life and it takes a trip to our happy place to find our center. I don't have to pack too long or travel too far to find my reason for being. My backyard is a wonderland of mystery just waiting to be explored. I may never be anything more than someone you once knew. My only hope is that a piece of me remains to be explored long after I am gone.
I often wonder why I have been placed on this earth. Is it to carry a gun so that you can feel safe and free? I have done that. Is it to change an infinite number of watch batteries so that you can make it to work on time? I have done that too. Or is it to simply capture a moment so that you can experience something you may never see from a side of the planet I have never been? In time the gun will be replaced with something more advanced and the watch battery will be long since expired. My ticket will have been punched, but I hope the life I lived will remain for others to experience for eternity. That is the power of a camera!!!
