Joshua Tree National Park

Finally had a chance to visit Joshua Tree National Park this summer, and while it was hot, it wasn’t crowded and I was able to capture some incredible shots. Did the trip in a weekend and would definitely go back in the winter when there are cooler temperatures and a greater number of night time hours for stargazing.

Photo featured in North Cascades' National Park Map

So two summers ago I had the privilege of working as a staff photographer in North Cascades National Park and they recently redid the park map to highlight some of the new photography myself and others have contributed to the park's library in recent years. Two of my photos made the final cut, one panoramic photo looking off of the trail near the top of Sourdough Mountain and one featuring a friendly little critter known as the hoary marmot. A scanned copy of the map is below as well as the original photos. After visiting so many of the national parks on the west coast, it means a great deal to me to give something back. Enjoy!
