"A Visual Vacation Log of the Wild West -
Join us as we set out on a 5,000 mile road trip through 9 western
states with 2 goals;
to view and photograph the beauty of the western United States, and
to record as much
wildlife as possible. We'll take you to; Zion, Bryce, the Grand Tetons,
all the way to the San Juan Islands, and down the entire coast of Oregon
In the wild we saw;
moose, elk, otters, sea elephants, wolf, coyotes hunting,
baby fox, ravens (of course) eagles, herons, white pelicans,
owls, hawks, beaver,
muskrat, geese, deer, bison dueling and dozens of wild orcas at San Juan
But...we also took a couple of amazing side trips, and at one you'll
see Diana with 3
baby tigers in her lap (see pic above)
and a four week old baby spotted leopard!

And with the exception of some dolphins, seals, otters and monkeys, none
play, tease and have as much fun as the raven.

and Catalina Island.
