Steamy   Leave a comment

A winter trip to Yellowstone might be described in one word: steamy. For 21 miles, the Firehole River collects runoff from erupting geysers and boiling hot springs, creating a ribbon of mist and hoar frost as the water begins its journey to the Missouri and beyond.

The sky is ablaze with color during sunset at the National Bison Range Refuge Complex in Montana. One of three refuges that make up the Bison Range Complex, Ninepipe (pictured here) rests among the prairie potholes of the Mission Valley to serve primarily as a refuge and breeding ground for native birds.

Utah’s Beauty   Leave a comment

Canyonlands National Park preserves 337,598 acres of colorful canyons, mesas, buttes, fins, arches and spires in the heart of southeast Utah’s high desert. William Rainey captured this amazing photo of early morning light illuminating part of the park’s iconic Mesa Arch and the surrounding rock formations. Of the experience, William says, “Sometimes the best photo is not the one you came for.” Photo courtesy of William Rainey. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 12/11/14.

Building More Boards In 2014   Leave a comment

Handcrafted ByI can see the light at the end of the tunnel … but I’m not there yet.

I never understood how many cutting boards and cheese boards I’d be making this year when I hopped on this merry-go-round. With success … comes work. Here are some of the latest boards I’ve built … and there’s more to come. 2014 is not done, not by a long shot.

Some of these boards were built to fulfill Xmas orders. Some were built for our final events of the year, taking place this weekend. I built all of these because I thought they’d be pretty.

Hope you agree!
