I suppose I should write about my most favorite place in the Southwest, how I was enchanted by the spirits of Native Americans who once lived in New Mexico or all the adventure I found. But Im going to let the pictures do the talking, because trying to explain a solo road trip where I saw few people is best left unexplained!
I grew up in a small town. I went to Uni. I started taking pictures afterwards in 2000. Several cross country road trips and 3 summers in the Sierra Nevada forced me to fall in love with the outdoors. In 2004 I began working full time, taking advantage of every free weekend and holiday while liquidating my yearly vacation for bigger trips to other countries. I especially love conifer forests and alpine mountains.
I'm currently taking pictures of Kids and Models, check out my Facebook page for details!

Roadside Shrine in Abandoned Chimney, New MexicoCatholic/Native American shrine in an abandoned chimney just across the border in New Mexico. Sitting at 7000 feet(2200 meters) in the Apache National Forest, note the stone on the left- "thank you jesus for a elk in our hunt".
Gila Wilderness: USAHigh Plains, Junipers, Gila River Gorge
Elevation of these hills is 5200 feet(1600 meters), the forested peak distant left is 10,700 foot Whitewater Baldy(3273 meters)!
Ancient Ponds, Decoration Forestcheck out the rimstone at the bottom. An ancient pond was once there, causing the formations to grow over it like ice on a lake. Then when the pond drained, it left the formations seemingly suspended.
Gila River GorgeApproaching the awe inspiring Gila Wilderness area. Gila sits at the same latitude as San Diego! Hot springs, cliff dwellings, 3000 meter mountains, 2 months of torrential thunderstorms, year round rivers and 2200 meters valley elevation means cool temperatures in summer while the surrounding desert bakes.
The Dolls Theatre, Carlsbad Caverns National ParkZoom in of "the Dolls theatre". The "Soda Straws" are actually only the size of a fat pencil, but there are so many in such a small cubby hole the NPS rangers aren't exactly sure how it could form so tightly.
