I have had a life-long interest in photography. An interest in the outdoors and natural resource management led to employment with the National Park Service and later the US Forest Service. During this time I developed a special interest in caves, bats, and nature in general. I am now retired, but continue assisting agencies as an environmental engineering consultant. Travel, and many days spent in the field, provide ample opportunity for photography. Many of the photos shown here are the result of finding myself in unique or little-visited locations. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do taking them.

The mine map(http://static.panoramio.com/photos/original/50308886.jpg) seems to indicate that one tours the Techatticup mine as stated. I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

This part of coast is GREAT! I like it - especially Cannon Beach! Regards, milli

That's a massive dune - surprised the vegetation is hanging on.

This is a great spot. Its been a long time since I've been walking here...

JIM,I saw this on the automobiles group.fascinating picture when enlarged.like.wallymc

I fully understand that!

Thank you for your comments. The raccoon family is being fed pet food by the marina owner who had a "soft-spot" for all animals. Though they are wild animals, many of the young ones were so habituated to people that they would follow you around the docks looking for handouts. To get your attention they would sometimes play with your shoes and untie the laces. Unfortunately when they grow up, they are often agressive, particularly the males. Distemper ran through the group causing most to eventually die since they didn't have immunization shots like regular pets.

This makes me feel cold. Nice.

Beautiful building


Best wishes

Thanks Jim for the correction! I'm sort of a fishwheel nut and I lead Autumn outings for Friends of the Gorge to tour the remaining bits of fishwheels in the Beacon Rock area. You can see some of the fishwheel remnants in my pix on GoogEarth on Ives Island, just upstream of Beacon Rock. Cheers, scott
