Outdoor Pictures 2006
The 2006 year was good to me with regards to my outdoor adventures. I was able to partake in several backpacking adventures to mountain lakes during the summer months, while visiting the local rivers and ponds frequently year-round. Overall, I spent more days in Mother Nature and on the water than any other year to date. The following are some of my better outdoor photographs from 2006.

A meadow creek amidst mountains.
"A meadow creek amidst mountains" was memorable. Truly one of the most picturesque places I've ever fished. And even though there weren't any big fish, there were alot of 'em.
How do you feel about me using one of your photos for a painting reference? If the painting turns out well I may do prints and would love to send you one. Let me know what you think of this idea.
Idaho looks beautiful. I've been wanting to move there for a while from california. Less taxe, crime, etc too.
