These are a few of my favorite pictures from 1998.  Most of these pictures were taken with a Nikon N-70 using a Nikor 24-120mm lens, the close ups were taken with a Sigma 70-300mm.  I use primarily Nikon gear, my favorite lens is the Nikon 24-120mm for it's all around versatility.

These are from trips into the Uinta's in Eastern Utah in the winter of 98/99
