Angel Canyon

The +Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, UT. is one of my favorites places. It's the largest no-kill animal shelter in the country. They demonstrate compassion and common sense and have made huge advances in the care and treatment of our companion animals. Stop by and visit the next time you visit the great nearby national parks like Zion, Bryce, and the Grand Canyon. They have renamed Kanab Canyon, Angel Canyon and it's a gorgeous place!!

Events come back in February!! Stay tuned for details!!

Be sure to circle +Landscape Photography Community +Landscape Photography Show and +Landscape Photography for the best in Landscape Photography on G+!!!

Meet Harold

Harold has joined the household! He's 14 years old and front de-clawed. He was found as a stray and very emaciated. At his age and without front claws, life on the streets must have been terribly difficult for him. He certainly couldn't catch any food. I honestly don't know how he survived.

He came to the +Wayside Waifs animal shelter where I volunteer and was there about a month before he was adopted by a wonderful family. He stayed there for 6 weeks and put on some much needed weight. The family didn't feel he was bonding sufficiently with the resident cat so they returned Harold to the shelter where he stayed another month. I knew that if he didn't get adopted by New Years that he would need to come home with me.

Having 3 resident cats, I needed to make special preparations for Harold!! I've got the best brother-in-law in the world!! He helped me move furniture and make a room ready for Harold!! He arrived home Wednesday and is getting settled in. He has seen a couple of the resident cats from a distance and had a big "hiss" for each. We're taking it slow and easy!!

Senior pets are the most amazing animals. They truly know that you are saving their lives!! I now have two 14 yr olds, a 16 yr old, and a 3 yr old. 3 were adopted from the shelter where I volunteer and the oldest came from +Brown County Humane Society in Indiana. They are awesome companions and great friends!!

Please consider adopting a senior pet from your local shelter!!

Dreamland Overlook

This is one of my favorite places to view the Colorado River. Marble Canyon cuts through the Arizona Strip country above the Grand Canyon. It's not as deep but definitely magnificent!!

Introduction
I'm a photographer, learning, teaching, and documenting the world around me.  My favorite subjects are landscapes, birds, wildlife, people and pets.  I especially like taking photographs of figure skaters.  I like to learn from other photographers and share photographs.
 
I love cats and helping animal shelters.
 
I'm in tune with older music from the late 50s and early 60s and have always enjoyed Dick Dale, Jan & Dean, the Beach Boys, surf music, and early rock & roll.
