Jeri Lynn taking parting shot on the way to Utah.
Parting shot / j. l. chandler


I grew up wandering the woodlands and wading the creeks near my home in Maryland. Summer vacations were spent along the Atlantic or clamming, crabbing and fishing on Chincoteague Bay. I love the out-of-doors in general and wild places and gardens in particular.

 Eventually I migrated to the West Coast to study landscape architecture and now live, garden, crunch the Numbers, and write - about landscape, gardens, sustainability and food - in Northern New Mexico.

My professional background includes research, writing, and public information work for the National Park Service, World Wildlife Fund, and Maryland's Department of Natural Resources. I am also a partner at Whitworth and I, a small creative services company that specializes in concept design and interpretive content for museums, parks and other natural areas.

Coming or going? On the road to Utah on the backside of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
(Btw, some objects in your mirror are even farther away than you imagine.)
