I decided to take some photos today rather than post to the blog. Here is the Portneuf River today at Edson Fichter Park on the south outskirts of Pocatello (SE Idaho).

    Ralph,
    You were a tremendous photographer when I managed Inkley’s a decade ago, and you still are today. I probably processed 50,000 images from ’90-’97, and yours (and one others) were far and away the best of the best. I’m glad to see you have a venue that displays your craft so well.

    Best Wishes,
    Farid Rushdi

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
