In 2009, I was an Artist-in-Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The planned finale of my trip was an overnight hike and stay at Chasm Lake to capture star trails and a timelapse that would span the time from sunset to sunrise. This blog post tells the story of that part of my residency.
In 2007, I had the pleasure of serving as the Artist-in-Residence for Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve, Alaska. For the first part of my trip, I chose to base camp in an area that was part of the migratory route of the Western Arctic Caribou Herd. This blog tells the story of what I found.
If you grew up in the United States, most likely a national park was part of that upbringing. During National Parks Week in 2016, and to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of our parks, I contemplate how our parks shaped my own personal story.
