Photo of the Day – November 14, 2017

Reveille Peak Ranch, nestled in the Hill Country of central Texas, was the backdrop for a recent Heroes on the Water event. The organization helps our nation’s warriors and veterans to unwind through the therapeutic qualities of kayak fishing. The Fort Hood chapter put on the event and provided all equipment—from kayaks to safety equipment, even the fishing gear was provided for the vets by HOW. I convinced Dan to come down with us and fly his drone, perhaps take some photos, and to my surprise, he agreed.

The ranch, which describes itself as a 1,300-acre outdoor event, adventure and education center also has a well-stocked fishing lake and hundreds of miles of hiking and bike trails. It was the perfect venue for the HOW event and the chapter was able to put a dozen vets (and some family members) on the water that day. A big thanks to Vol Montgomery and the folks at Reveille Peak Ranch for hosting Heroes on the Water that day.

He was making his way to the dam, hoping to fish the tailrace, when he decided to beach his kayak and hike over some rocks towards a small pool of slack water he wanted to fish. Once there, he waded into the river,

This particular photo caught

The Horses of Ogden, Part 1

Horses of Ogden-6663I had an opportunity recently to visit Ogden, Utah where I spent most of my time in the old downtown area known as Historic 25th Street. Today Ogden is known for its ski resorts and proximity to Hill Air Force Base, and so most people don’t know that the Golden Spike completed the first transcontinental railroad in 1869 just fifty

POTD 8-5-15 Brazos BassAlthough I usually prefer to stay behind the camera, I wanted to share this photo of a big Brazos beauty, which I caught in some shallows below Whitney a few weeks ago. I’d been looking for an opportunity to take a nice bass photo in my Ride 135, which along with Dan’s Cuda 12, were provided to us by Mountain Sports (after we lost our boats in
