After marrying, she was in charge of nature studies and geography in the San Bernardino Schools for a period of time.
Esther and Elmer made their home in Klamath Falls but they traveled the up and down the Pacific Coast and Rocky Mountains. Esther was a talented artist who worked in watercolors, pastels and oils. Esther painted botanical specimens while Elmer botanized.
Her drawings can be seen via the Shaw Historical Library.
Esther had a tendency towards illness, sometimes limiting their travels, but they still remained constant companions. It appears that they remained immensely in love and truly enjoyed life...
