Treasured Lands Book Survey

If you bought a copy of Treasured Lands, I thank you for your interest in my work and your support. I would be even more grateful if you would participate in the following nine-question survey, which should take only a few minutes. As a small token of my appreciation, all respondents are eligible for a […]

Happy New Year 2019

In a forest of thousand trees, no two trees are alike. In a year of eight thousand hours, no two of them alike. Even on a dark and cold day, the sun may still shine on you. I hope you enjoy many moments of shining light in the upcoming year. On a December day more […]

2018 in Review, Favorites, and Seasons Greetings

In 2018, I spent less time in the national parks, the sole focus of my efforts for many years, and more time in other public lands. Those include the national monuments, some of which have been under the most serious threats in our history, as illustrated by the evisceration of two of the largest and […]

Happy New Year 2018

Today the winter sun rises on the first page of a 365-page blank book. Make it the best you can! After a night in my car, I showed up for sunrise in Lassen Volcanic National Park…. brrr! Lassen Peak has the highest snow accumulation in California, and snow closed the park road, leaving only Manzanita […]

2017 in Review, Favorites, and Seasons Greetings

In 2017, I limited again my travels, in part because of the demands of the book tour for Treasured Lands. Beyond the great critical reviews, awards, and official state recognition, I am most grateful to all of you who have helped make the book a success. This has me considering a follow-up based on solely […]

Year 2016 in Review: Caves and Peaks, Treasured Lands and the National Parks Beyond

It felt like I spent half of the 2016 year in a cave, and this is reflected in the image choices for this post. Determined not to go on a single trip before the book was finished, I tried to get out Treasured Lands in time for the National Park Service Centennial. Even after completing […]

HELP!!! My Husband’s Other Woman is a Three-Legged Cyclops!

Guest post by Lanchi Vo The problem is that they’ve been together for a very long time, long before he married me. So, I am not sure who has the “Right of Way” here. Their relationship is a perfect one. They truly click. She has an eye only for him. She is dependable, patient, quiet […]

What I did on National Park Service Centennial Day

Last week, on August 25, the day of the National Park Service Centennial, I posted the announcement for Treasured Lands on the blog in the morning. I then drove to Petaluma, where my publisher, Cameron Books, is located. The bulk of the shipment from the printer arrives by ship and is still somewhere on the […]
