Note... This web site is pretty dated, in both content ("that is so, like so, 20th century") and technology (awful <font> tags and such) and not even that maintained much any more. See what is more current over at the new CDB weblog...Since the pre-cambrian web era (say 1998), I have assembled most photos, professionaly and personal, using a free web template known as the "jClicker", such as some 4000 photos from my 6 month sabbatical to New Zealand and Australia
If I could be compensated sufficiently, I'd be more than happy to spend the rest of my life snapping photographs around the deserts and mountains of the Southwest. My puny collection resides as an "awesome slide show"
A most splendid starting point is the Sonoran Desert... cast away those movie images of Saharan blowing sands-- the Sonoran is a lush and green environment, and unlike anything else I ave seen, It's own strangeness is its attraction.
How about some random Walks for photos and descriptions from various places in the Southwest USA. More than Four Corners includes pix of some of my favorite more-wild, less-trampled places in Arizona.
Why? Don't ask? I told you. I ride a bicycle to work, and you can follow my virtual route. Technically, the route is real; it is you who is virtual!
Always looking at mud cracks, looking for patterns in nature.
