Trailhead
Heading up the Hieroglyph Trail. Makes for a very nice day hike with about a 1.6 mile trek with a gradual elevation gain of roughly 600 feet.

Sometimes we try so hard to remember people, places, situations, our words get in the way of the true depth of what we are experiencing. Life is full of these constants. Thinking about Mandela as I browsed photos today, I came across this.

More simple beautiful flowers from the archives. They are ranunculus, just before they started turning brown on the edges. I love these cause they are so pure and startling up close. The white one could use a bit of work. It's a bit flat.

Here's a link for photos I have posted (many may have been seen here). I thought I'd give selling a try for those who are interested. Of course, posting to a group whose skills are tremendous, may be ridiculous at best but I'm putting up and posting links where ever I can!

I've taken some sort of plunge and am trying to sell some of my photos. Since this place is full of fotogs it might not be the best. I have more to post but the season was late and things were starting to get in the way. Take a look. Maybe something unexpected will strike you.
Thanks,
Sam

You know you've gone over the edge when you take a series of flies pigging out on tortoise poop. To my good fortune they ignored me and I got several shots. This is a random one cause I don't have the time to work on it. Don't worry. I don't have a smell card installed yet so you won't smell anything distasteful!

Introduction
Autodidact for a lifetime, now in middle ages in SLC, Utah. Looking for a path for the second half of life. Amateur photographer, writer, American primitive guitarist.
Worked every summer in the Appalachians of PA. Learned how to roof and lay rock in state parks; tore down several 200+ year old barns and helped a friends Dad build a house out of the timbers, Plowed and shoveled snow, hiked Appalachian trail several times thru Pa.; learned short-order cooking. In Tucson did construction in 105degree days; 6units short of Education degree; mainstreamed Autistic children in 3 different schools; taught grad students teaching skills for handicapped kids in schools; ran successful cleaning business for 10 years; ground floor at AOL in 1995 until 2004 managing technical support writing team; got married, 2 kids; survived 4 back surgeries; started photography career; lived out of back of truck for several summers; cleared 40 acres of mesquite trees in the country for friends; listened to coyotes howl at night by the fire; ran from bears in the Rincons; had small painting biz for a few years. Moved to SLC; worked at medical research company; saw grandson grow from birth till current; 2nd Grandson born 4 months ago; having some small success with photography including 2 library exhibits for kids this summer. And finally, who I was before SLC is not who I am now! Finally grown up....I think!
Bragging rights
Made it to 50 living the life we wanted to. Have great kids, 2 grandsons, Everett and Grayson who as every Grandparent knows are the most beautiful kids ever! Lived in Tucson when it was still a small town, hiked all over the Southwest for years thanks to Ed Abbey. Finally learned to generally be content with what there is instead of constantly looking for something new or better.
