Robinson Twins Portraits outdoors

We are twin brothers devoted to natural adventures and environmental protection. We produce standard and high-definition videos, photographs, articles, and books covering topics related to 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 near Air Force bases around the country with one stint overseas, on Okinawa, Japan.
We now have a blog to showcase our photographic works of
National and State Parks, wilderness areas, plants and wildlife.

Happy 100th Anniversary to the
National Park Service, August 25th, 2016!

Ralph 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 alive in this video:

Natural Recreation Series

 Point Reyes Recreation
Point Reyes National Seashore is the unit of the National Park system that Robert has visited the most. It made sense to make it the topic for our first National Park video. It's a birding hot spot and wilderness area with backpacking, day hiking, biking, and paddling.

 American River Recreation
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.

San Joaquin River Recreation
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.

This video is being revised. You could order the old version for $19.95 at:

Natural Adventure Series
 
Teton Crest Trail
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.

Other Video and book ideas in various stages of planning
Environmental Living How can you live your daily life in a way that lessens your impact on the environment?  We'll give you concrete steps on what you can do in our "Environmental Living" video.

Phil Erro is a teacher and farmer who has done work in the Peace Corps. His home's energy comes from solar panels. He keeps erosion under control at his farm and in 2006 installed a photovoltaic system to generate enough electricity to offset the energy used by his farm's pump. 
Old Sacramento Our video on Old Sacramento State Historic Park will kick off our historic places series.  Old Sacramento has one of the largest concentrations of historic buildings in the Western United States, many of which date from the Gold Rush and the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad.  We'll show you around in our upcoming "The Robinson Twins present Historic Places: Old Sacramento."
The Great Rift The Great 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.
Caves of California California has many more caves than most people realize. California has a great variety of caves: sea caves, wind caves, mud caves, talus caves, solution caves, lava tube caves. With enlightening the public to these wonders of Nature in mind, we've decided to produce a video and a book about the "Caves of California".
