Paria Rimrock Toadstools

The Paria Rimrock region west of Bigwater, Utah is one of those otherworldly areas with scattered pockets of hoodoos:

It’s a short hike (about 1.5 miles) from the marked parking area on Highway 89, west of Bigwater.
Thanks for viewing!

A Night at the Museum

I hope you’ll enjoy this panorama that is totally unrelated to our usual offerings! The New York Botanical Garden hosted several installations of artwork by the well known artist Chihuly in 2017. This would have been your view if you had snuck (sneaked) into the conservatory after hours and avoided security!

The opening view in this panorama is of the really cool ceiling in this Victorian-style glasshouse.  Pan downwards to see the the glass work by Chihuly. For the record, I did not sneak in nor did I get arrested! I was asked to produce 360s of the installations from a unique perspective.

Thank You!

Merry Christmas

The Northeast corner of Wyoming is home to a geologic feature made famous in the now 40 year old movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”:

Devils Tower Wyoming


Even when viewed from great distances it’s a truly impressive feature.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for subscribing, and to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. If you have a moment I hope you’ll find this Christmas video enjoyable:

Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year!

Jasper Forest

Jasper Forest, in Petrified Forest National Park:

Many of these stone tree trunk fragments reminded me of redwood trees. For some this park in Eastern Arizona is a bit off the beaten path, but worth the time if you’re in the area.
Have a Great Day!
