Yellowstone National Park


When I moved to my final park assignment in Yellowstone, I had stopped taking slides, and was using color print film exclusively. When I was going through the process of selecting slides to be scanned, I was surprised to discover that I had even taken any slides at Point Reyes.

So, for the moment, the will be no photographs of Yellowstone presented on my blog. I do have several hundred color negatives from Yellowstone days, but don't expect to start sorting and scanning these until next year. Yellowstone photographs are coming, but not for awhile.

But, don't despair! I have slides and black and white pictures which have been scanned -- some of national parks, state parks, and my early college coursework photographs. And of course, there are the digital pictures I've taken since 2002 . . .

Point Reyes National Seashore





I moved from coast to coast for my next park assignment -- Point Reyes National Seashore. I spent my high school years (1952 to 1955) living in Marin County and visited the future seashore quite often. In fact, a group of my friends and I actually hunted rabbits with the permission of one of the ranch owners. The National Seashore was established in 1962 by a congressional bill signed by President John F. Kennedy.

I'll start with some "general" photographs which show the diversity of the area.
