Abandoned pump house near Gardiner, Montana. We planned to camp here, but a strange smell lingered over the area. I recognized it as the distinct scent of something dead, and, sure enough, followed my nose to a place where two elk carcasses had been dragged into a ravine. They looked to be grizzly bear kills, but cougars also frequent the area. We moved on and camped with a group of fellow travelers about a half-mile away, figuring that we would be safer in numbers. All night long, we heard coyotes quarreling over the carcasses, but soon, even they went silent, giving way to what was likely a much larger animal.

Bali, Pangrama Hotel.

The locals told me a number of different stories, one being that they had built it on an enviromentally protected area hoping they could bribe their way out of it, another that they were hoping to buy the close by beach (which you can see in some of the photos) which obviously didn’t work out.

When i went there i could hear noises of people working and as you can see there was motorbikes in the main entrance. I proceeded with caution, but in the end i decided to confront the man, turns out hes french and was doing volunteer enviromental work for the place, he said it was ok for me to shoot the place.

None the less this place was very beautiful and enhanced my Bali trip immensely.
