Bryce Canyon National Park Impressons Bryce Canyon National Park Impressons

photography by James Randklev, forward by Greer Chesher

Although it may not look it, Bryce Canyon is a world in motion. Daily, from seemingly immutable cliffs, rocks tumble, ancient and immovable hoodoos shed skin, and high-angled slopes elbow downhill. Underfoot, the very soil ripples as unseen microorganisms tunnel gossamer fingers. The silent forest bustles as mule deer, prairie dogs, coyotes, hawks, and snakes partner in life's dynamic and complex dance. Photographer James Randklev beautifully captures the timelessness of this Utah treasure.
80 pages - 8.1 x 9.2 inches

This book is absolutely beautiful and if you've been to Bryce will bring back fond memories. If you're never been there, you will make it a destination. Just beautiful!!!!

NIGHT SKIES of the American Southwest NIGHT SKIES of the American Southwest

Hardcover
Size: 9.5"X12"
Pages: 48


“Half the Park is After Dark,” a slogan coined by astronomer and night sky advocate Tyler Nordgren leading up to the centennial of the National Park Service, is now a commonly recognized way to promote nighttime activities on our public lands. Growing up in Southern California, our favorite family summer vacations were often to places like Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, and the National Forests surrounding them. At that time our evenings were mostly spent having dinner and hanging out at the lodge or motel. If I would have known back then that half the park is after dark, I would certainly have pestered my parents to explore and discover a night sky far richer than we had in our suburban home on the outskirts of Los Angeles."
