Looking at this old tractor under the stars, youncan't help but think about the dreams of those who operated it. Generations later, it was those dreams that led to exploration and discovery.
Reflections from the North
When watching something as naturally unique and rare as the Aurora Borealis in a place like Idaho, you can't help but reflect on all of the amazing offerings nature holds and how fortunate we are to still have places like this to get out and away, miles from anyplace or anybody, to experience them raw and alone.

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho After Dark
Palouse Falls and Canyon, Washington
Standing right on the edge of a cliff, overlooking a 200' waterfall alone in the dark while watching the Milky Way rise is exhilaratingly surreal. The tinge of fear quickly fades off, dwarfed by the feeling of being so tiny and insignificant, floating along on this rock in an incomprehensibly vast sea of space.

A Lone Tree Tickles the Milky Way Over Lake Pend Oreille
Placed by chance in the harsh environment of a bare-rock shoreline, this lone tree defies the odds of survival. It battles against the elements and continues to reach for the stars as it is here, during the Lyrid Meteor Shower.
Palouse Falls, Washington
Palouse Falls is awe-inspiring as the 200' cascade roars away, ebbing and flowing with the seasons. When all of the elements come together and the Milky Way rises over the falls, the awe reaches deep and touches the soul. This is nature at work--past, present and future.
