Number 1: Grand Prismatic Spring Yellowstone National Park

Emerald Pool Yellowstone

Photograph number 1 is a picture of Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park.  Karen and I had just walked through the boardwalk at the Midway Geyser Basin and seeing those hot springs close up is very special.  However, getting more of bird’s eye view of the springs gives a whole new perspective. If you …

Number 2: Road to The Tetons

The Road to the Tetons

Number 2 is a photograph of a park road leading up to the Grand Tetons.  All of this vacation it had been cloudy (well most of the time anyway, sometimes I can get carried away with my pessimism at least that is what Karen tells me).  For some unknown reason, unless we are going to the beach, …

Rainbow on Misty Trail

Number 3 is a photograph of a rainbow on the Mist Trail at Yosemite National Park.  That was a pretty good day, a somewhat tiring day, but a good day.  Karen’s Dad and I decided to take Yosemite signature hike the Mist Trail all the way up to Nevada Falls.  This photograph was taken next …

Number 5: Clear Lake Yellowstone National Park

Clear Lake Wyoming

Number 5 is a photograph of Clear Lake in Yellowstone National Park.  It is an enticing picture of Clear Lake and from the photograph you can see how it got its name.  The reason I like this photograph is because it has a great story that goes with it. Karen and I (well more me …

Number 6 is a photograph of Yosemite Valley in California.  A picture of the Valley in Yosemite National Park is the shot on every photographers list.  It is kind of like getting the photograph of Delicate Arch in Arches National Park.  The photograph has El Capitan on the left side and Bridalveil Falls on the …

Number 7: Mammoth Hot Springs – Yellowstone

Mammoth Hot Springs

Number 7 is a photograph of Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces in Yellostone National Park.  The terraces were formed when the heated water from the Morris-Mammoth fault bubbles up to the service where carbonate and calcium combine to make travertine.

Number 8: Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore through Rock

Number 8 is a photograph of Mount Rushmore through two rocks.  I am an 8th U.S. History teacher so I just love the area around the Black Hills in South Dakota.  You have Custer State Park with their 1500 free roaming bison, Badlands National Park, and the massive rock statue of Crazy Horse (not completed …

Number 9 is a photograph of sunset at Arches National Park in Utah.  Karen and I have both been to Arches twice, and we plan on going back sometime in the next year when we are heading back to the Grand Canyon.  I really like Arches because, to me, it has that quintessential rustic western …

Number 10: San Fernando Cathedral – San Antonio

San Fernando Cathedral

Number 10 is a photograph of San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio.  Growing up in Kansas and spending the last ten years in the plains there have not been a whole lot of opportunities for me to see pre 1800’s architecture.  I find it very interesting to be around old buildings and to see how modern society …
