The Sacred Path

Journeys through the mist

Some of you may ask…

What’s up with all my coverage on Little Goose fire? As I told you in my post Little Goose Canyon, I had a wonderful experience up there, and have had a couple more this summer as well. For me there is a magic to Little Goose Canyon. It has a feel about it that’s hard to describe – one that I very much enjoy. Since it’s difficult to get to without a four wheel drive, you don’t have to worry about it being crowded either. For me it was a local place of solitude and beauty.

After the fires are extinguished, and I am allowed to go back up there, I will. Sure it will have changed, but everything changes; change is the only true constant. I look forward to next spring when the snow has gone and the rebirth begins in bursts of green and Little Goose Creek is flowing strong and singing its song.


  1. Thanks for the updates. I have a personal love for the Big Horn Mountains that can not be replaced by anything. My love stems from childhood because I have a family cabin that was built when my father was just a baby. I have always known these majestic mountains as a peaceful place with minimal human touch, and unequaled pristine beauty. My cabin is within range of the fire being about 3 miles from the western line, and because it keeps growing exponentially I am afraid Sunday was the last time I will ever see the cabin again. 0.0% contained, and having grown 200% from Saturday night into Sunday, while I was still on the mountain, is also a contributing factor for my fear. From the moment I got off the mountain Sunday afternoon through to this very moment, my anxiety has not ceased, and will continue until I or another member of my family gets back to assess the situation. It is currently impossible to get there because the fs road is closed. I feel for the people who have already lost their cabins/homes, at least 3 structures have been lost and about 100 more are threatened. I have all the faith in the world that the great heroes fighting this fire will do their best to save all that they can, and thank God no lives have been lost. To all of those brave men and women, good luck and God speed.

  2. Thank you Nate, and I feel the same about the Big Horns. There is just something about them that makes me feel “home.” And I’m standing right there beside you in my thanks to all those fighting the blaze. Let’s all pray that no one gets hurt, and that they are able to save all the cabins and homes.

    Well, I’m just glad that you are posting again. Your combination of skill-sets and experience is something one doesn’t find just anywhere. I can’t put my finger on it, but I get the sense that there’s something uniquely valuable about photography from someone who also has experience with the other side of life. Post away!

  4. Thanks Frank, and my posting has been few and far between this summer partly because I’ve been spending so much time out in nature, and partly because… I don’t know.
