Once in a Blue Moon
July 31, 2015 was a Blue Moon night. No, the moon did not change color, it was the second full moon in the same month. This is a photo I took while high in the Uintah Mountains at about 10,400 feet. If you look closely, you can see the outline of a bat that...

Rock Faces
The more I look at this image, the more faces I see. This is a rather interesting rock formation in the northern part of Capital Reef National Park. You will have to travel quite a ways down a dirt road to get here, but the scenery is well worth the trip.

Beginning of the Trail
This is essentially in my "backyard." We live about two blocks from the mouth of the canyon shown in the distance. This is nearly on top of one of the hills right behind our house. There is a vast difference between what I can see out my window right now an...

Morning Sunlight on Timpanogos
The Wasatch Mountains, including Mount Timpanogos, runs north and south. We live on the west side of the mountains and so our home and others which are right next to the mountains, have to wait until late in the morning before the sun officially rises. This...

A Golden Field
There are several plants in the United States that are called "skunk cabbage." I suppose that I could have entitled this post "A Field of Skunk Cabbage" but that would not have been nearly as idealized as referring to the gorgeous color of these plants. Thi...

Story
Introduction
I have more than thirty years' experience in law, computers and over thirty years experience as a research genealogist. I presently serve as a volunteer at the Brigham Young University Family History Library in Provo, Utah where I alternate between helping patrons and teaching classes. I am most interested in the technological aspects of genealogical research because of my strong technology background. My own family were pioneers who settled in Utah and Arizona in the 1800s. My family dates back to the Mayflower and with the exception of two family lines who came from Denmark, my family all came from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
