The Rocky Mountains are my go-to-place for recharging my soul each summer. These images are an attempt to capture and share the beauty of the mountains with you. Recording the remnants of the rich mining history of the Rockies is also an important goal of some of my images. It is truly amazing that many structures are still standing a century and a half after construction by mining pioneers at elevations over 10,000 feet. Dreams and determination definitely defined the American west. Enjoy!
