protection. We produce standard and high-definition videos,
photographs, articles, and books covering topics
understanding, appreciating, and enjoying Nature and natural and human
history. This web site is hosted by Netfirms, a company which is 100%
wind powered to reduce our environmental footprint. We grew up on or
Force bases around the country with one
stint overseas, on Okinawa, Japan.
We now have a blog to showcase
our photographic works of

Wood, 90 year-old World War 2 veteran recalls his experiences as a
gunner in the B-17, being shot down and held prisoner in Stalag 17,
his return to America, and making a career in the space program,
helping to build satellites and planetary space probes, including the
Hubble Space Telescope. Ralph passed away in January, 2012, so we were
able to record his story in time.
His story comes

spot and wilderness area with backpacking, day hiking, biking, and
So far, we've produced videos on the
American River, which runs through Sacramento, California. There is a
park system called the American River Parkway, along the river from
Nimbus Dam downstream to where the river flows into the Sacramento
River. It has a bike trail that is about 31 miles long. There are also
paddling and rafting trips down the river.
Another video is about the San Joaquin
River, near Fresno, California. There is a parkway being developed
along the river using the American River Parkway as a model. The San
Joaquin River Parkway still has many parcels of land to be purchased
and developed before the parkway will be completed, but there are many
recreational opportunities already. A bike path 5 miles in length is
already completed. Paddling trips are possible on your own or through
the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust.

Grand Teton is the highest point of a dramatic mountain
range in northwestern Wyoming. Most of the range is in Grand Teton
National Park. The Tetons are about 40 miles long
and rise over a mile from the valley to the east, known as Jackson
Hole. The Twins backpacked from the north end of the range to the
south. This video will be the first in their Natural Adventure series.

Rift forms a 60 or so mile long scar on the face of
central Idaho. At the north end of this scar is the Craters of the Moon
National Monument. We've backpacked into the Craters of the Moon
Wilderness at least 3 times. Very few people visit the wilderness,
something on the order of 50 per year. President Clinton declared an
expanded Craters of the Moon National Monument in November, 2000. The
expansion includes more of the Great Rift, farther south than the
current boundary, to the Wapi Flow. We hope to backpack the
entire length of the Great Rift for an upcoming adventure video.

decided to produce a video and a book about the "Caves of California".
