Eagle Point and Guano Point along the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, November 2008. Over 4,700 feet down to the canyon floor. Can you see the eagle?

Weekend in Chicago

Shots from our anniversary weekend in downtown Chicago in May, 2016.

Hotel: Langham Hotel, Chicago. Excellent service, comfortable rooms, spectacular views. We would highly recommend.
