Twelve Favorite Photos from 2014 and a Short Documentary

Bull Elk Silhouette on Ridge

I had no idea just how much my life would be shaken up through 2014. It all started much the same way as 2013. I was frequently showshoeing up Blacktail Butte in the frigid dead of winter to see what new tracks awaited me, and if any critters would be out while I was.… Keep reading...
