Heart Mountain rises above the surrounding sagebrush-covered landscape near Cody, Wyoming
Sometimes I feel like Chicken Little writing about so many threatened places in the West. It’s the nature of this line of work, something to be mindful of with so many great opportunities to protect special places. The Absaroka-Beartooth Front (pronounced Ab-zorka) is a special place where we have a good chance of keeping it as it is – wild and uniquely Western. I’m working with Greater Yellowstone Coalition and the International League of Conservation Photographers on a “Tripods In The Mud” Campaign to protect the A-B Front while steering energy development away from sensitive habitats. I think we have a great chance of being successful. The images that follow are just a few from my first expedition to Cody, Wyoming and the surrounding area. Please check back as this project continues to develop!
