Tired of the lack of snow? Try Utah!

About 183 million years ago most of the Four Corners area was a vast desert covered with sand dunes that were up to 2,500 feet high. Through the ages, the loose sand became sedimentary sandstone carved by both wind and water. And the water carried minerals which gave the sandstone a wide variety of colors. This is the Colorado Plateau which has the greatest number of National Parks in the nation. The plateau basically starts at Bryce Canyon, Utah, and then stair steps down to the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River.

    On cows, boys and cameras

    I've been working recently on "A Rancher's Life," an ongoing series in the Chronicle, and as I listened to the bellowing cattle at a Maupin area ranch I was reminded of the very first roll of film I ever shot and developed. It was eighth grade, I was taking an ...

    Gone mobile...

    I remember a newspaper cartoon I saw years ago, showing a "war correspondent" type photojournalist, rough and careworn, wearing a photo vest and holding out a tiny, goofy-looking cell phone. It was funny, the idea that someone with a cell phone could capture hard breaking news. I had it on ...
