Lynn Henneman, Boise, 2018.

I’ve passed this monument a thousand times, but today I stopped to read it. Lynn Henneman was raped and murdered not far from this spot. Years later, her murderer was caught and received the death penalty. This is so heartbreaking.

Raphael and Hailey, a Greenbelt walk in Boise, Idaho

Raphael Garcia and Hailey at the Boise River. Raphael told me that it’s important to have balance in life. When I first arrived here at the WhiteWater Park in Boise to take photographs, I was so happy to see a forest of these awesome stacks of stones. These structures are called Cairns. I remember hiking in the Sierra National Forrest many times, and I’d find these on occasion along a trail which would often disappear; but upon spotting one of these cairns, I knew I was in just the right place, and that I wasn’t alone. I’m thankful to those that light the way.
