We've added some photos to the Pine Forest Range photo album in our photo tour. We hope you enjoy!
Funky early morning light with moon over the Pine Forest Range. What a great spot on our public lands to enjoy the Perseids Meteor shower!
Daniel Montero of RaD Explorations wrote a beautiful piece about the time we spent on the ephemeral Quinn River. We were recently back by the spot we paddled and the water has moved on, the channel now dry. The Quinn River has a special place in our hearts as it is the river our creek feeds and since its occurrence is rare, we reveled in the chance to experience its momentary passage into the desert.
Below is a small excerpt from Daniel's post. You can see the entire post on RaD Explorations Blog.
Ephemeral water. Water that exists and doesn’t exist. That exists in this time, but not in that time or the time before that, or after that. And then it exists again. It questions our notions of permanence.
We've been working hard on updating our photo tour! We've added a few albums and added pictures to a few of the existing albums. Below are links to what we've done so far and we are still working on adding. Please check out all our new photographs!
We hope you enjoy!

On Wednesday November 16, 2016 I had delicious lunch with my life-partner-in-crime over at Mi Ranchito in Reno, NV. As we were leaving the restaurant it started to snow.. By the time I got close to my house the sky was dark gray and bright blue, sunny and stormy all at the same time.. It was an awesome sight, so rather than to head home, I decided to head up Rattlesnake Mountain for a better view.
Checkout the stormy slideshow below. I really love the photo of the storm swallowing the Grand Sierra Resort (GSR).
Also, Patreon Patrons, there's additional footage for you to check out over on Patreon.
Over Halloween weekend 2016, we came across this amazing ghost rainbow when the low clouds were rolling over the Black Rock Desert. It was an awesome sight! Ghost rainbows, also known as fog bows are made up of tiny water droplets, due to the small size of the water droplets light is not reflected and refracted (as they are in rainbows, with larger droplets) within the drops, but is diffracted by them instead which produces a pale, broad bow! Cool!
