Now that the days are getting longer, the weather getting warmer, and the sun shining more often, it’s time to think about getting out those hiking boots and finding a trail to hike.
If you are ready for a road trip, why not think about Great Basin National Park in Nevada. The crowds are less, but there’s not much infrastructure out there and finding lodging takes some effort. Nevertheless, there are great trails out there, and Bristlecone Grove Trail is one of them I’ve hiked. As a matter of fact, it’s part of a “Trails I’ve Hiked” series that the National Parks Traveler periodically publishes and my article about this trail has been published in today’s edition of the Traveler.

If you’ve ever revisited a favorite spot in a favorite park during different seasons, times, weather conditions, you’ve probably noticed how these different conditions can change the look of the scene (and your resulting photos).
My latest photo column has been published in the National Parks Traveler, and it’s all about these differences.

There’s a series occasionally published by the National Parks Traveler called “Trails I’ve Hiked.” I recently wrote about hiking the Cinder Cone Trail in Lassen Volcanic National Park and it’s published in today’s edition of the Traveler.
Click the image to check out the article. Maybe you’ll want to visit this national park and hike this trail. There are certainly fewer crowds along this trail than along other popular ones in the park.
This image is an iPhone shot I captured during my hike back down the steep, unconsolidated pumice and volcanic ash trail after spending time at the Cinder Cone summit. In the distance, on the upper right corner, you can see Butte Lake surrounded by the black blocky rock of Fantastic Lava Beds. Butte Lake is where this trail begins, so I had a little bit to go to get back to my vehicle.

When you look at other people’s national park photos, are there some images that it feels like you are literally being pulled into the scene? That’s the invitation of an intimate composition, and today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler has published my latest article about those photo invitations and the elements comprising an intimate composition.

Regarding the image, it was photographed some years ago during my stay at Stehekin, Washington, located at the head of Lake Chelan within the North Cascades National Park Complex.
