About Homelandscapes

My blog, Homelandscapes, describes some of my connections with the very special landscapes I have been fortunate to call home—places like Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park, the village of Joshua Tree in the Mojave Desert of Southern California, and the mixed-grass prairies and badlands of South Dakota.  I hope my writings inspire others to cherish and nurture their own homelandscapes, whether that means an urban backyard, the local nature center, or a working farm.  (Learn more about why I chose the name Homelandscapes.)

Blog posts include writings on natural history, news of current events pertaining to national parks or conservation, and photography from some of America’s most treasured wild lands.  You may find the occasional trip report or book review among my posts, too.

This blog reflects the personal opinions of the author, and should not be construed as presenting the official views of the National Park Service or any of my previous employers.  It is written entirely on my own time.

    Beautiful photos!! Love your essay on Glacier National Park. We visited in mid August of this year. We spent all of our time on the West side. Hope to get back soon and explore the East side!!

      Thanks! I’ve been to Glacier twice, but both trips were far too short. I think both the east and west sides of the park are wonderful in their different ways. I love the diversity of the plants in the forests of the west side, but the sheer drama of the scenery on the east can’t be beat. On my next trip, I want to spend more time in the backcountry!

    You have a beautiful blog and your posts are very informative. You also explore subjects in depth, which I appreciate but not many bloggers choose to do. I will be back to visit your site.

    • Thank you so much, Jo Ann! I appreciate the kind words. And I’ve been enjoying reading Wood and Field–it’s so much fun to see how the experience of the seasons varies from place to place.
