The 44 and Upper Hoback

Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming

 Puffy clouds linger over the Wyoming Range as a violent thunderstorm moves over the Teton Range to the north. I was flying a LightHawk mission with Chris Boyer of Kestrel Aerial Services to document roadless wilderness threatened by natural gas drilling. Two potential gas fields that have been leased would turn this scene into an industrial complex like the Jonah Field and southern end of Pinedale Mesa - sacrificial landscapes. Update: Conservationists across the region have succeeded in preserving "The 44", as announced by the USFS, but there is a renewed industry effort to develop this important area. The "Noble Basin/South Rim Unit" aka: Upper Hoback is protected forever after The Trust For Public Land purchased the gas leases and retired them in perpetuity!

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
