I went off on a Vision Quest. The ridiculous idea of visiting all the lakes in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado stuck in my spirit. After 34 years, the lifetime dream was realized. But over the years, the game changed, life happened, and the lessons learned were not what I had imagined.

I was told to write the book that I wanted to read. High Altitude Paradise is the story of my search for lakes. But more than a portfolio of lakes, it is a story of family. Of love and loss. It's about the power of wilderness to provide peace and comfort in a challenging world.


The book is currently SOLD OUT.  Someday, I may do a second printing, but for now, Pam and I send  our heartfelt love an appreciation. High Altitude Gratitude.

The images below are excerpts from the book as well as other work I have done in RMNP. For over 40 years now, the Park and I have become close friends.
