A place for the wilder part of our photographic lives... Two friends accompanied me to the Goat Rocks Wilderness this weekend. My first encounter with this magical goat heaven was when I was fifteen: my father, brother and I set out to explore McCall's Basin, a horse camp at the foot of the Goat Rocks mountain range. But upon arrival, our longing for pristine alpine landscapes was not satisfied, so we explored an adjacent valley one ridge over. What we found has become my favorite mountain locale―a beautiful landscape with a lushly flowered meadows, a spacious, secluded valley, seven 7,000 to 9,000 ft mountains forming a bowl, 4 waterfalls cascading down into the valley, neat rock formations and of course, hairy, stinky, but cute, goats... Enjoy!

Tent Rocks // New Mexico My family explored Tent Rocks last weekend. These are ancient geological structures formed by a volcano extinct for some 3-4 million years. Bizarre and temple-like... Arrow

Mt Rainier // Near Ptarmagon Ridge Me bro, dad and I ventured into the mountains again, this time to the sacred Mt. Tahoma. Since moving to New Mexico, this has become an increasingly important place of spiritual renewal for my busy father... This was in late August.

Did the annual goat rocks trip with five others this year.  This was early september and the weather was dankalicious.

Enjoy ~
