Distant Antelope

Spotting an antelope is always exciting. Hunting big game is as much a part of the culture here as farming, ranching and going to church.

Abandoned Ranch

There are quite a few old abandoned ranches and homesteads around but you won't usually see them from the main highways. You'll have to take a trip down Crowley Road off of highway 20 to find this one.

Desert North of Westfall

If you are wondering if those hills are as desolate and dusty as they look, the answer is a resounding yes. The dust flies like snow when you drive over those hills.

Antelope on Crowley Road

Getting at all close to the western Pronghorn Antelope is a feat in and of itself. Getting close enough to get a photo w/o a telephoto lense and being able to see anything was a miracle. I wasn't looking specifically for wildlife so I'm pretty happy with this shot.

You will only find this view by driving about 10 miles south of Sqaw Creek and taking a little BLM access road up into the hills. It is a bit hard to find and unfortunately I didn't have my GPS that day.

A Unique Sky

Capturing a sky view like this was a real treat. Believe it or not those colors are true. Sometimes in the spring when the weather is still a bit wet the clouds and shadows come together just right to capture something right out of hollywood.

Drive around near rock canyon long enough and you find something like this.

A Desert Storm

Here we can see the wind before the rain hits the desert. Catching a photo like this is a rare opportunity and if the storm happens to be a rough one a person can get stranded out there for days due to the deep thick mud. Fortunately this proved to be a fairly light rain.

Highway 20

Never traveled along highway 20 between Burns and Vale? Well I can save you a trip. You'll see a whole lot of this.
