Armchair travelers are welcome also. The breathtaking beauty, of places some never seen, captured through the lens of a local who knows which sunset is exceptionally stunning and understands stumbling onto an Roosevelt Elk bathed in golden evening light at Gold Bluffs Beach in Redwoods National Park in Northern California is a rare gift.

Ashland Oregon Day Trips capture the warm, summer ,sunny days and also the deep frozen winters. Autumns shaded with a painter's palette of rusts, browns and reds. And finally spring blooms with yellows, blues, pinks and greens. A masterclass of artistic cratsmanship, naturally.  

The Bandon sunset and coastline pictures are arrestingly beautiful. Crater Lake, the deepest in the United States, with clear, deep blue, water was formed when an eruption caused the collapse of one of the surrounding tall mountain peaks. The others are still surrounding the lake. Photos capture the splendor of the lake, the folklore of its creation, the still standing monuments and parent peak surrounding the fallen peak.

An eclipse over Mt. Shasta is displayed in time elapsed photography. The barrenness of Little Shasta, with a single church steeple standing at the foot of this impressive majestic mountain. The photography is awe-inspiring.
