I am a biologist and Manager of the California State University Desert Studies Center, located in the Mojave Desert at Zzyzx. When not there, I'm backpacking and fishing in the Sierra Nevada range, kayaking somewhere, adventure traveling, or exploring back roads and trails in the desert and elsewhere. Current cameras are a Canon EOS T3i, an Olympus C8080, a Sony HDR-SR11 camcorder, a Pentax Optio WP, and occasionally an iPhone 5. Hope you enjoy my images and those of others who have shared with me. NOTE: depending on your display, you may need to scroll down to read a caption for an image/video.
