2016 was the Centennial of the National Park Service. To mark that achievement, my photography last year was mostly focused on shots taken in the parks, monuments, etc. over the last decade.
I also included lands designated as parks, monuments, and recreation areas even if they are not directly administered by the NPS. Places such as Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Newberry National Volcanic Monument, and Hells Canyon National Recreation Area, just to name a few...
Of course, these non-NPS sites also include the national monuments being reviewed by the Trump Administration for size reduction or elimination.
In 2017, I hoped to move on to other locations that I’ve been neglecting for too long, filling up the “Places” galleries of the website. I’ve got thousands of photos from the last decade to sort, edit and share… I spend way too much time shooting and not enough time editing!
