This Climate Spiral, as I call the altar, is made on this day of the people’s climate march, toward the end of a week of solidarity. It was inspired by hearing about the water blessings taking place in Washington DC before the day’s events begin.
I build this altar. Recognizing that the earth is whole, and shall be fine. Also recognizing that we are at choice, we can influence how quickly our planet changes and what will be lost.
Contemplate, make your choices, add your unique voice.

Went out hoping for some sunshine. Got some, and some wind, and lots of wildflowers! So many Grass Widows, one hillside in particulare was super Dense!

The journeys of 2014 kept Nicholas and his cameras mostly in the Northwest, and within the environs of Portland, Oregon – but that is for another time. Here we see where he went, what he shared and explored. The roads wind ever onward – to enchanted Oregon forests, deserts, and waterfalls. And to Adirondack high peaks and snow at the beach. I invite you to step in and enjoy where Nicholas’s eye takes you in these pages.
Should you desire a PDF version to print yourself, contact me and I can make one available.
A brief outing out of the city, with the sunshine to the countryside; traipsing through the woods to spy some mushrooms, then arriving at a sandy beach to soak and play with rocks.

My hike up Glacier Ridge towards North Arapahoe Peak was for two things: time with my mom, and a visit to document the current state of the Arapahoe Glacier, oh and to become totally engrossed in the tundra micro landscape… (10 images) Continue reading
Heading up to the gorge one morning the hazy air made for some great skies.
I’ll have to post a little collection of halo images soon if the haze keeps up =)
Today we have a Powderday! what an excellent treat to have excellent fluffy powder come down during a short 50th birthday ski celebration / reunion of sorts. Snow was late to come down, and what had been forecast at 12 was downrated to 6ish, and in the morning we had 8ish! enough to cover the hard freeze melt. And enough to drift up deeper in places for some real sweet shots. We got some first tracks off scotty’s ridge. Dropped down in via some steep crazy entries. The sun kept popping out to reveal special graces in the landscape. And all the while we got hot, got cold, ate food, lost eachother, found eachother, saw skeleton trees, explored, and skied powder! weee!

Coming back from Vegas, what a short trip, but what a long journey back. Several days, passing through Death Valley and stopping again in Reno. Long deserts and plains. Mountains rising and falling. The lake again frozen. Foggy roads and home again. Continue reading
