Super Bloom at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (2019)

Wildflower super blooms in the desert occur only about once per decade on average. The last super bloom occurred in 2017 and neither Debra nor I were able to experience it. We were thrilled to learn that another super bloom was underway this spring and promptly drove from the Gulf Coast of Texas to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in California once we finished with the van rebuild project.

In 2018 we experienced several significant lightning storms while we were in the mountains, and I decided to try capturing some photographs of one storm.

Bison, deer, turkeys and more awaits you at Custer State Park in South Dakota. This 71,000 acre state park in the Black Hills offers something for nearly everyone, but is perhaps best known for its large herd of wild buffalo. The herd, which numbers around 1,300, is one of the largest in the U.S.

Estes Park Hummingbirds (2018)

We stayed in Estes Park, Colorado for a few days while making our way back to Wyoming from Florida in June 2018. Our visit to Rocky Mountain National Park was memorable enough that we both left with a desire to return.
