Bryce Canyon Hoodoos  Wind + Water + Ice Erosion = Hoodoos.  It´s amazing how a few simple ingredients can make something so spectacular.

Smokey Tells It Like It Is :: Yosemite National Park, California :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Smokey Tells It Like It Is  In case the picture is not self-explanatory (which, in fact, is kind of illogical), the smoke in the background is a forest fire. Smokey´s sign says "Fire Danger VERY HIGH Today".

Old Coastal Highway 2 :: Redwood National Park, California :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Old Coastal Highway 2  This path was where the old coastal highway was before it was decommissioned.  I took a short ride along here, pretty deep into the forest where I captured most of my images.
Old Coastal Highway 1 :: Redwood National Park, California :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Old Coastal Highway 1  The trail that goes off to the left used to be the former coastal highway when there was less traffic.  The forest service has maintained this as a semi-paved trail through the thick of the redwoods.  From this trail, you can see the ocean and how closely this forest hugs the shoreline

Yellowstone Falls Rainbow :: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Yellowstone Falls Rainbow  Taken shortly after sunrise at Artist Point, this photo of Yellowstone Falls shows a natural rainbow that can been see at certain times of the day.

Old Faithful :: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Old Faithful  I still wonder if deep below Old Faithful there is a crew of men meticulously opening and closing a large water valve every ninety minutes of so.  (Although, I´m sure the US is outsourcing these jobs now.)

Lobos Del Mar 6
Lobos Del Mar 5 :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Lobos Del Mar 5  Even after a large wave, the baby sea lions make it to shore with little trouble. From what the guide said, sea lions have no natural enemies here because the killer whales are too big to get into the small crevices and curves of the island. Population control is provided by the adult male sea lions, who will kill the young to protect their turf.
Lobos Del Mar 4 :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Lobos Del Mar 4  I make no claims to being a nature or sports photographer. I´m simply happy I managed to get an image, albeit one out of focus. Good thing I wasn´t hired by National Geographic to cover these animals because I would have failed miserably!
Lobos Del Mar 3 :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Lobos Del Mar 3  These sea lions are not like the ones you see at Sea World. They have battle scars, are dirty, and would rather sleep that jump through hoops.

Lobos Del Mar 1 :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Lobos Del Mar 1  Obviously not interested in posing for the hundreds of tourists in small boats, this sea lion, or "lobo del mar," didn´t blink the entire time we passed by.

Lone Guano Bombardier :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Lone Guano Bombardier  Scouting the horizon, this bird had only the foulest of intentions. I´m sure that even as I took this picture, he was eyeing me and putting in a request for cargo drop on my boat.
Guano Makers :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Guano Makers  Each bird produces 1 meter of guano (bird crap) per year. The guano is bagged by workers and then sold as a high-powered fertilizer - one of the best in the world. The collection and sale of guano put Peru on the map of global trade. Since then mob families have run the islands, effectively making a major business from bird excrement.
Candelabro :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Candelabro  I swear this was created by a group of enterprising Peruvians who knew that tourists would flock from everywhere to see this sight. Explanations abound, but I´m going to stick my business instincts.

Like the lines of Nazca, if you want a really good view, try an online search. It was very cloudy, and I´m not too happy with the results.

Cove Of Human Waste :: Reserva Nacional de Paracas, Perú :: © 2004 Patrick Esmonde
Cove Of Human Waste  Although this was a part of the National Park, somehow the management overlooked the huge amount of garbage that is dumped from these two restaurants as well as the bathrooms that empty out into the ocean.  This was the only area of the amazing park that was spoiled.

Reserva De Paracas 1  These were the last signs of civilization I saw for the entire trip through the Paracas Reserve.
