khao yai redux

I met Hack at one of my favorite art galleries in Chinatown, Cho Why. His photos were being displayed during a presentation on Thailand wildlife, and I recognized Khao Yai in his photographs immediately. After the presentation, I spoke with the owner of the gallery, my friend Nick, and I was just gushing about Khao Yai when he called Hack over. Then and there we decided I would join him on his next jungle trip.

Here are the shots from our first trip to Khao Yai with a few other Thai photographers. I’m still in love with this place! Thankful to have found some more adventurous friends who understand my constant need to stop and photograph something…and who can help me with my terrible Thai.

Too lazy to write too much…so I’ll leave this here at a simple photo essay. Know that I am only capturing a tiny fraction of the beauty of Khao Yai.

Our first sighting in the park – a pack of Asian wild dogs fighting over a deer carcass with the biggest monitor lizard I have ever seen. Nature is awesome.
