The Ghost Ram

July 22, 2008

Although the only part of the ram that could be seen was the horns, as they were silhouetted in the afternoon sun, it was enough to induce a grueling climb up the steep shale bowl that lay above us. The beginning wasn’t too bad, but a small group of curious ewes made it a stop […]

July 22, 2008

The water was a deep turquoise color and glassy calm, as we touched down in the super cub on floats, and then idled into the shallows. Josh and I hopped off of the float into the water, and I was surprised to feel it was warm. We unlashed our kayaks from the plane and headed […]

A Long Shot Bull

July 21, 2008

When I arrived at the moose camp it was just as Preston had described it, a nice tent location just below the hill, and a good place to land, with only a short distance to walk for a sweeping view of the country for miles. This was the location of Preston’s hunt with Ulrich in […]

First Europe Trip 2006

July 21, 2008

The weather was not so favorable, as I stood upon the top most point of Bacharach Castle/Youth Hostel, but rain and fog could not dampen my spirits, or the view of the Rhine River that spread out below me for endless miles of vineyards, castles and boats. It was February 2006, and I was on […]
