About Me

John Muir, Henry David Thoreau, and Aldo Leopold were great naturalists.  I am not.

These men and others like them tuned themselves in to the natural world, dedicated their lives and lived in awe of the beauty and complexity around them.  All in their own way fought to save or promote some of the wilderness that was declining around them.

For me, nature is a passion that, unfortunately, only occasionally gets exercised.  I am not an armchair quarterback, but rather an occasional naturalist.

This blog records my thoughts and observations on both the beauty and wonder that exists just outside your door as well as the almost irreparable damage being done by man.  It is meant to be a window into a world that I only too infrequently, too occasionally open.
