This was my first time out west, and I remember looking around that first day and saying, "I feel so lucky. I can't believe I'm here. This place is so amazing!" What is striking to me is how very different this land is and how marvelously the life here is adapted to the harsh, dry conditions. Life is wondrously diverse and beautiful.
If you would like to see more, I have posted 150 photographs of this trip to my Flickr account in a Double H High Adventure set.
