Blogintro
As a kid growing up in the isolated mountains of Southern Idaho, I dreamed of one day traveling across the country, visiting various cities, world-renowned zoological parks, and even siting next to some of the most notable and influential people in broadcast.  The past few weeks I’ve seen these “far-fetched” childhood visions become a reality.

(Photo courtesy Munir Virani)
The Masai Mara National Reserve. The very reason why I fell in love with Africa. The very reason why I was determined to go back; and I did just that.

Lake Nakuru - Mara Evening Arrival 371
The next stop on my African adventure was Lake Nakuru National Park. I had no idea what to expect. I had never heard of Lake Nakuru nor was it ever mentioned that we would be visiting. Before I go on though, I have to mention that I have very few photos of the park- my Continue Reading...

2014 has been one incredible year! To be completely honest, it has flown by so fast that I can’t even believe it’s almost the New Year.

An Early Winter!

Wintertree
A record-breaking arctic blast has hit the majority of the lower 48, setting record lows and increased levels of snowfall. Never in my life have I experienced such a “white” November.

Halloween Memories

Can you guess which pumpkin is mine?
Halloween is a very exciting time for me. When you work with animals that people consider downright scary, there is always a chance you’ll have the opportunity to share them someway and somehow.

Temperatures are cooling, trees are beginning to change colors, and there is a sudden crisp in the air. This means only one thing: fall has hit the Snake River Valley region!
