For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with the history and wildlife of the West. I can remember vacation trips from California back to Michigan for family reunions and looking at the scenery as we drove. All the time wondering who had passed that way and what it was like in the days before the large cities and travel by car.
Also, having grown up in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, you will find the occasional ocean wildlife pieces. The days of fishing and surfing are some of the best memories of my childhood.
I must give the majority of the credit for what you see here to my lovely wife Rhonda, who remains my most enthusiastic and ardent supporter. We hope you enjoy the pieces presented here and come back often to check for new ones.
