  • UFO Museum, Roswell, NM

    UFO Museum, Roswell, NM

    The UFO Museum (& Research Center) in Roswell, New Mexico was a bit of a disappointment. I’m not sure what I was expecting – maybe something a bit more visually stimulating? After all, when it comes to alien art even the sky isn’t the limit. However, what you get for your $5 is access to […]

  • Panoramas from Down in Carlsbad Caverns

    Panoramas from Down in Carlsbad Caverns

    It was really hard to capture the immense size of the caverns 750 feet underground on camera. I ended up doing some panoramas, a couple of which were HDRs. The largest HDR panorama is a composite of 33 photos that creates a final image that has a resolution of 90 megapixels! Panorama of Carlsbad Caverns […]

  • Ancient Rock Shelter in Carlsbad Caverns

    Ancient Rock Shelter in Carlsbad Caverns

    American Indians apparently inhabited this area, particularly a large cliff overhang at the base of the canyon wall. Ashes, charcoal, rocks broken by heat, pieces of bone, and flint flakes have been found in the rock shelter. It is possible that this site has been used by many cultural groups, ranging back in time from […]

  • Carlsbad Caverns’ Bat Flight

    Carlsbad Caverns’ Bat Flight

    Six years ago when Heidi and I attended the bat flight at Carlsbad Caverns National Park the only restriction was that you couldn’t use flash. I was really bummed to find that now absolutely NO photography is allowed. After talking to the ranger, I found out it is probably due to the annoying high-pitched beeps […]

  • NM-AZ State Line

    NM-AZ State Line

    Our first state line to cross as a family! Heidi joined us in Albuquerque then we drove into Arizona the next day.

  • TX-NM State Line

    TX-NM State Line

    So far every state has presented us with a nice “Welcome” sign at their state line. New Mexico is the first to let us down. We weren’t on an interstate, but we were on the heavily trafficked Highway 285 that goes from Carlsbad Caverns National Park to the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Below is a […]

    Colorado 2006 Photos: God-Made

    In March of 2006, Heidi and I flew out to Colorado for a “mini Hauns Go West”. We took a week to visit our friends the Torrences in Colorado Springs and then explore the Sangre de Cristo Mountains where Great Sand Dunes National Monument is located. At the time I was still shooting film (I […]

  • Journal: Eat My Sub… or Else!

    Journal: Eat My Sub… or Else!

    I believe I’m safe in saying that most people are in a daze the first 10-15 minutes after they wake up. So you can hardly blame Heidi for being confused when a large, scruffy, bearded man wearing a leather biker jacket approaches her as she packs the car early in the morning. He bluntly asks […]

  • Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM

    Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM

    Carlsbad Caverns National Park was established to preserve Carlsbad Cavern and numerous other caves within the Guadalupe Mountains—a Permian-age fossil reef. The park contains over 100 known caves, including the famous Lechuguilla Cave. Carlsbad Cavern, with one of the world’s largest underground chambers and countless formations, is accessible via walking tours offered year-round. We caught […]
