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.

Jim Nieland's conversations

I worked here in the early 80's. Herb Paisler hired me and my brother in law. Dale Bess was my last Supervisor. I wound up doing back support, cribbing and rock bolts, hanging air, water and electric lines and ventilation. I had a shit load of "close calls" and two serious injuries. I loved the job. I was young and bullet proof and as I recall the money was decent as we were Teamsters. All in all it was a good time shared with a lot of good people. As life is I got hired by Clark County and moved on but I often think of the mine as my wife is named Billie. Well thats my version of the "Billie Mine" story. Peace to you all.

I remember being there, it was a gentle sunny day going all along the I-84, and when we arrived there, it had heaviest snow fall and strong winds...
