6/15/01: It's back!!!
Hey everyone, the past month or
so has been extremely busy for me. But now its over, and I am
getting back into the groove. I will be posting approximately
one pic per week now, I think. This week, enjoy another of my
personal favorites, The Struggle Against Change.
5/7/01: Sorry about the
extended delay in posting new pics
I apologize for my recent inconsistency
in posting, I have been extremely busy with several projects.
. Many great pics are coming this week. For today, here is a great
pic of the Teton range. Enjoy Teton Splendor I

Majestic Joshua Tree III
4/19/01: One of my favorites

Phantom ship in the Mist, a view of an island in Crater Lake,
Oregon. A great picture!
4/18/01: Two more pics
I added one pic for today, one
for yesterday, which I missed. These are blossoming plum tree
photos(you can see them in the What's New section
below). I have lined up quite a few new pics, which I will be
posting daily (if I can find the time). There are quite a few
really great photos, several of my personal favorites included!!!
Keep coming back and you will see them.
I also made a few minor interface changes,
and am almost done with the How To set desktop backgrounds/wallpaper
section. Hopefully I will post this section tomorrow.
4/16/01: Another new
This morning I fixed picture 26,
which was supposed to be uploaded with yesterday's set, and you
can find it in the What's New section below.
I have some pictures of a blossoming plum tree which will
be posted in the next couple days (I'm trying to get people to
come back frequently!).
I want to hear from you. What do you think
about the new site design? Please Write
to me and tell me!
4/15/01: 7 new pics!!!
Today I posted 7 pictures that
I pulled from my albums. There should be 8, but one of them needs
a bit more fixing up. There are lots more coming, too -- I have
been looking at some old slides, and some of them will be posted
once I get them scanned. I am really excited to have the site
back on-line, and hope that you all enjoy these pics!
This site was FINALLY
put back online April 14th, 2001. If you're a new visitor, welcome!
If you have visited before, thanks for coming back! I'm back on
track, and new pictures will be coming your way in a couple days!
OF THE MONTH (JULY):
Here are the 15 newest pics, newest on top:
The Blending of Water and Rock
-- Pebbles in Jenny Lake, the Grand teton range, Wyoming. A
The Struggle Against Change
-- An old barn and windmill, sans supports, twisted and leaning,
still stand, silently, indomitably.
Teton Splendor I -- The
Grand Teton range in Wyoming, viewed across Jenny Lake.
Majestic Joshua Tree III
-- This majestic Joshua tree was found in a desolate valley in
The Phantom ship in the Mist
-- A small, mysterious island seen through the mist in Crater
Plum desktop I -- A plum
tree in Sacramento, California.
Plum Desktop II -- Another
shot of the plum tree, from a different angle.
Contrastius -- These rocks, trees and bushes contrast with each
Wood -- This log had torn at the bottom
and ended up looking quite interesting.
Fracturock -- This rock in Utah fractured very interestingly.
This is a natural fracture, and it seems very strange that such
a break would occur naturally.
Breaking Dunes -- After a night of rain and a morning of sun, an
interesting "crust" formed on these sand dunes. When
the crust was "broken" from above, interesting patterns
formed. Photo by Greg Arehart.
Chief Cliff -- A grey cliff face with
green flora accenting it nicely. The blue sky at the top provides
a nice place to put icons!
Lake -- A very still Tasmanian lake
reflects the mountains surrounding it. Photo by Julia Arehart.
Cauldron I -- This hot spring is very
colorful due to the varied mineral deposits found in it. Photo
by Greg Arehart.
Volcano I -- This is the top of a snow-capped
volcano in New Zealand.
