Any fans of Dinosaur National Monument, or of great scenery and geology in general, should head on over to conservation photographer Dave Showalter’s Western Wild blog and check out his excellent set of aerial views of Dinosaur. Dave does a lot of fine work documenting threatened landscapes from the air, and I’m honored to have been able to advise him a bit on his Dinosaur work. His wildlife and scenic work is mighty fine too!

  1. Jackson – Thanks for the link and pro guiding services from 1,500 feet. It’s humbling to think how small we are when viewing Dinosaur from the air; yet our species seems determined to bend the earth to our will. Just today, I read that national parks and monuments are increasingtly vulnerable to oil and gas air pollution (not new news), and Dinosaur may be the most at risk. Getting all of that “clean natural gas” comes with a hefty environmental price tag. I’ll share some of these images and a letter with CO BLM Director Helen Hankins and other representatives, including Gov. Hickenlooper. It’s our land.
