The Valley of Fire

This spring when I went to Vegas to see The Eagles in concert at the MGM I went exploring. The Valley of Fire had been on my list of must see geological places ever since mom told me how spectacular it was when they saw the Eagles months earlier. Just […]

Postcards From the Sky

One of my favorite things about flying everywhere is the view from the window seat. Over the years I have gathered a collection of beautiful photos from the sky. I love flying out of Fargo around the beginning of August! The land always looks like a beautiful patchwork quilt. Clouds […]

Rainy Day at the Lake

In honor of the seemingly never ending rain we have been having, I’m going to share a couple photos from my rainy day at the lake. Being at the lake was so much fun even though it was raining. It was wonderful to smell the fresh air of the trees […]

The Statue of Liberty from the Sky

Last summer (2014) I had the opportunity to travel to Newark, NJ for a job. While I wanted to stay the weekend and see the sights in New York City, time just wasn’t on my side. I literally ran from the moment I stepped off the plane out to the […]

Four Days in Death Valley

The first things that come to mind when I think of Death Valley is hot, desert, no shade, snakes and scorpions. While it is true that Death Valley has all of those things, it is so much more than a collection of lizards and overheated sediments. It’s beautiful and full […]
