Looking for fall colors in unexpected places

During the last two weeks of September, many photographers travel to Colorado to catch the fall foliage the state is deservedly known for. They congregate mostly in places such as the San Juan Mountains or Rocky Mountains National Park. I was in Colorado too, however I was looking in other places, part of my quest […]

Mount Rainier National Park new images: fall foliage

I thought that the alpine gardens of Paradise were hard to surpass in terms of beautiful vegetation in the summer, when they are covered with an incredibly thick wildflower display. After a new visit last fall, I am no longer sure which season I prefer in the park. While the flower carpets cover lot of […]

North Cascades National Park New Images- Fall Foliage

New images: Katahdin region, North Maine Woods

I’ve posted two sets of new images: Katahdin Region, and North Maine Woods, the final installment of images of the Maine Woods (trip report). Although there are a number of foliage images, those two series are more about the relationship of people with the land, both recreational (hunting) and commercial (logging). In a place that […]

New images: Allagash Wilderness Waterway and the Lacroix Locomotives (with directions), Maine

I’ve posted new images of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, the third installment of images of the Maine North Woods (trip report). There are not a lot of places where you can be hiking through a remote forest and suddenly stumble upon huge, rusting, but otherwise well-preserved, steam locomotives, stuck one hundred miles from the closest […]

New images: Moosehead Lake, Maine

I’ve posted new images from Moosehead Lake in Maine, the second installment of images of the Maine North Woods (trip report). Moosehead Lake, the largest in Maine, sits in a beautiful area of the Maine North Woods. The lake, bordered by low mountains and rolling hills, features an intricate lakeshore (280 miles long) and more […]

Baxter State Park is one of the largest wilderness areas in the North East of the US (the only other comparable area are the Adirondacks in upstate […]
