From Nathaniel Hawthorne to Stephen King, fall in New England is a beautiful, eerie backdrop for the literature that keeps you up at night. I’ve always loved cemeteries. The darker, more overgrown, and more historic, the better. They are a quiet place to get away from everyone, except the occasional goth teenager. This photo of Boston’s […]
Christopher Schoenbohm shows us what’s really “just over that hill” in Vermont. “I took some back roads in Vermont and managed to capture a few landscapes in between the downpours. Vermont’s countryside is gorgeous – full of farms, rolling hills, and quaint towns.” -Christopher Schoenbohm Don’t just take his word for it, check out the […]
Crews keep balloons in check during Magic City Hot Air Balloon Rally. THESE HOT AIR BALLOONS glowed in a park just off I-90 in Billings, Montana, lighting up the dusk as burners flared, and drawing my attention away from keeping my car on the road. Luckily, I had my camera with me. I photographed this […]
WHILE OLD FAITHFUL usually steals the show for first-time visitors to Yellowstone National Park, Beehive Geyser is one of the many impressive, but lesser known geysers that keep me interested in the Park’s thermal features long after I’ve memorized the geyser basins. “A hundred yards distant from The Giantess was a silicious cone, very symmetrical […]
The storms in eastern Montana and Wyoming are almost never a unified force. Fierce downpours rage like a jigsaw puzzle, separated by jagged strips of blue sky. Lightning strikes in rapid bursts while curtains of rain reach down to the ground from stacked clouds. As I waited between furies of storm, a rainbow stretched across the highway, beckoning.
Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, just a few minutes north east of Lovell, WY gets just a tiny fraction of the visitors who hit Yellowstone National Park, just over one hundred miles away. Of those few visitors, most are in boats on the lake at the bottom of the canyon fishing or waterskiing. Photographer Jeff […]
THERE’S SOMETHING FREEING about following a road into the mountains to see where it leads, and letting it turn from highway to back road to gravel track. Nothing but time and the road conditions determine your fate. I took this road back to the East Rosebud Area of the Beartooth Mountains. Under normal conditions, this […]
SUNSET ON THE ROAD leading to Pictograph Caves State Park outside of Billings, Montana. Even on cloudy days in Billings, the sun sneaks out for a few minutes before it sets. This is a visible effect of the “big sky” the Big Sky State is named after. Photo by Eric Warren
WHEN I SEE A ROAD like this, even though it could be treacherous, I still want to see where it goes. Have a safe Holiday season, especially if you’re traveling. Photo by Superior National Forest.
Montana’s high-country is lighting up with fall color! Though Montana isn’t as famous for its autumn color as its east-coast cousins, many of the deciduous plants put on a show as the days begin to shorten. These trees and shrubs along Rock Creek in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness are some of the first in the state to […]
