"No matter what direction my life has taken, I have always made sure I had a camera(s) along for the trek. The more time I spend outdoors, interacting with nature and observing the many wonders of Mother Earth, the stronger I feel that we must work to protect and preserve our environment for ourselves and future generations."
Carol's pictures are featured as greeting cards, published on calendars and are also available as prints.
