Best Photos of 2006
Posted: December 31
These photos represent my choice of the best photos I have taken this year.

St. Louis Zoo

Went to the St. Louis Zoo today. Not much going on but I did manage to capture this photo.

Forest Park 
Posted: November 01 
I went to Forest Park today to enjoy some fall colors.

While there I ran into my godson Jim Scharff and his family who were involved in a private photo shoot. I stood in the background and snapped a few photos as well.

Highway 287 
Posted: September 30 
These photos were taken on the drive back from Driggs. I don't usually drive Highway 287 on the way back.

We happened upon an area just off the highway where a herd on antelope were active.

Grand Teton National Park 
Posted: September 27 
I am usually not out west this long but had to remain longer to make sure the repair of my broken wrist was healed enough that the surgeon would allow me to leave the area.

This allowed me to experience and photograph fall colors in the Tetons. I was able to capture the third photo on the "More photos" page. I think that it is my best landscape photo ever!

Swan Valley

It was nice to be able to see and photograph the fall colors in Swan Valley.

Swan Valley 
Posted: September 08 
Drove down to the Swan Valley area today and explored Fall Creek Road.

This area has some active thermal stuff going on. That was a surprise to me but subsequently talking to a ranger in Yellowstone found out that this is fairly common in this part of the country.

We decided that we would visit Ennis, MT on a down day from hiking. On the way there, we passed by a large group of folks who were on bicycles and one person on a unicycle. On the way back to Driggs, the unicycle person was still at it.
