Pony Express Territory Mountains
A brave, young man gallops through the mountainous Nevada desert on one of the fastest horses in the West, dust clouds being kicked up by its hooves, as together they brush through the iconic, indigenous sagebrush found throughout the valley. He is a Pony Express messenger, assigned to carry...
Thinhorn Sheep checking out the opposition

Bryce Canyon sunset
“A hell of a place to lose a cow – Ebenezer Bryce” Almost a decade ago, I travelled for a month around the West Coast of America. I loved the diversity I encountered, from the leafy forests of Yosemite, the (un)bearable heat in Death Valley, the history of Mesa Verde, the opulence in Las...
