Come visit the Intermountain Area and find the place that you've been looking for. Get Inspired. Get your camera. Get off your butt and see what you're missing.

These photos were taken by Sheryl and I during our many hikes and campouts. These are places that we never knew existed until we stumbled upon them accidentely, usually looking for something else, and you really need to see them for yourself since a photo only gives you a taste of their appeal.

 There's no better way to forgot about work and bills and all the idiots in the world than to discover a hidden, inviting, flower-filled meadow that has been waiting for someone like you to show off to. So what are you waiting for?

And please feel free to ask me about anything you find here - we WANT you to see them!
