These are some of my favorite random photos taken over the years. Some were deliberate attempts to be "artsy". Others were situations that simply caught my eye and demanded to be preserved on film. Still others are just happy memories. Click on any of the thumbnails to view a larger image.    
Smoke's Creek runs behind the house my grandparents lived in and was one of my favorite places growing up. My grandfather and I would spend hours hiking, fishing and hunting for fossils. In the summer, the water was a lazy trickle full of life and hidden surprises. In the spring, the melting snow would turn the creek into a raging rapids, moving huge stones and remapping the geography in preparation for a new season of adventure. Here are some images I took one summer day hiking with my brother.
