I have had some incredible opportunities for projects in Ohio. In fact, almost all of my best work is in Ohio. I really owe all the thanks to my clients, the Coopers, for trusting in me and allowing me to run with my design ideas.
It has often been asked of me, why don’t I just move to Ohio? The following images were taken at a Billings city park called the “Four Dances Natural Area.” It is behind our house and across the Yellowstone River. We can look out our back yard upon these sandstone cliffs and watch the sun rise over them in the morning. We also can hop in the car and drive to the top in just a few minutes to take the dogs for a hike.
Sometimes I think to myself, “I can’t believe I live here!”
Here is a view of Sacrifice Cliffs out the backyard. They are illuminated by the last light of the setting sun.
These shots look west to the Absaroka Beartooth Mountains.
This shot looks south to the Pryor Mountain range which is just inside Wyoming. The Pryors hold the national wild horse refuge.
Hope that answers any questions of why I don’t live in Ohio.
Peace, Love, and Woodworking
