Welcome to my panoramio site. I hope you enjoy viewing my photo selections, taken mostly in the American Rocky Mountains & Great Plains. I have had a camera in my hand continuously since childhood always looking for new photo opportunities and view points. Generally, I photograph in panorama/ landscape camera setting as we saw the American West in the movies. Through the years, I have taken 100's of hikes to discover new locations to photograph. Now, I have returned to photograph with a digital camera, hopefully with improved camera experience. I also have a passion for history photographing anything old-- towns, buildings, trains, planes, old forts & trails, etc. My photo descriptions sometimes contain geologic information, my career background. Recently, I have included photos of the Canadian Rocky Mountains after numerous trips the last several years as I passed & hiked in Glacier National Park in Montana. Again, thanks for visiting my panoramio photo site. Would enjoy hearing from anyone caring to comment from other parts of the world. Never stop exploring our planet and getting to know it better through photographs.

Hello and thanks for the photos.

The engines were actually created from original photos, as very few drawings existed. Painstakingly creating drawings by scaling photos, O'Connor Engineering Laboratories was commissioned by the National Park Service to re-create both the Jupiter and #119. See a great video of the process here:

Take care, Peg

Very impressive and great light!! Like&Fav!

Best regards ,



Thank you for your comment. These two hikers found this high point along the paved trail south of the Grand Canyon Lodge on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Sincerely, Phil

Hi Michael,

Thanks again for your comments and visit. For many visitors to the Grand Canyon, they like to stand on the very rim edge for photos. I do not think these visitors jumped up but just stood on the rocks which was a wise move. Phil

Greetings Michael, Thank you for your kind comment on my Mount Reynolds photo. Catching the best photos in the mountains takes just the right weather conditions and lighting, which is many times a rare combination. Phil

That would be OK to use my photo for the Uintah County ad. Just give photo credit to Phil Howland

Hi Christos,

Thank you very much for your like and comment. Is appreciated very much. I spent about hour at the Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone watching the ice move & crack under the bridge. Was a nice experience and very interesting. Greetings from the American West.

Tom, Thanks for visiting my site and commenting on my photo. Yes, history can be lost forever unless people, communities, organizations or governments preserved the sites. Although, Fort Phantom Hill had a very short active history, Texas preserved the location making it a state historic site. For the most part, the Great American West has more wide-open spaces away from the big cities to save more historical locations. My ancestors also lived in New England in the 1600's and were around during King Philips war. Phil
