Hold Still


“. . . to whatever extent photographs can reveal the dark mysteries of a haunted landscape, I set out to make them.” - Sally Mann from Hold Still Last weekend I read photographer Sally Mann’s new memoir Hold Still, in...

MacGillivray’s Warbler


I woke on Sunday morning to loud singing. Song resounded above the rush and pour of the Lochsa River, where I was camped. The first thing I did when I emerged from my sleeping bag and the back of the...

In Muddy Creek


“Quick sand!” yelled a woman behind me. My ankles had disappeared. We had traversed a willow thicket on a sand bench above Muddy Creek. I had walked at the very edge of the bench in the gap between the willows...
