    Max's Travels

    One of my favorite things in life is to visit awesome wild places. When I do this I usually take photos - some better than others. This usually involves some plant shots as well as landscape photos. I hope you enjoy.

    First installment: Hell's Canyon, Oregon/Idaho.


    A view of the amazing Wallowa Mountains from the original gravesite of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce.


    Wallowa Lake outside of Joseph Oregon.


    A side canyon seen from the Oregon side with the Seven Devils Mountains above.


    A wind-gnarled tree on the rim of the Canyon.




    Native bluebells.


    Glacier lilies.




    Hazy peaks of the Wallowas.


    Fresh spring needles on a larch tree.


    Shadows creeping up Joseph Canyon.


    The wild Salmon River above Riggins, Idaho.


    Hazy late-afternoon sun looking out towards the Canyon.

    Awesome pictures Max, thanks for sharing. Really gorgeous landscapes around there. It makes me feel lonely just looking at those mountains.

    St. Helens south

    Just a few shots from Siouxon (SOO-sawn) Creek and the SW side of Mt. St. Helens. 'Close to home.

    I don't know if this is a problem for others but on this forum I often find that photos are reduced to something similar to thumbnails for me. My browser (Firefox) allows me to see photos in their full size by right-clicking on them and selecting 'View Image'. Perhaps other browsers allow this as well. I find it important to return to the forum by using the back arrow after I've done this so I don't lose my place. For what it's worth.


    A side creek.






    This is the right orientation - ha!


    A small creek cutting through a mudflow with the summit of Mt. St. Helens in the back.


    Fireweed (Epilobium augustifolium.)


    Wild huckleberries. Mmmm.
