My friend, Tim Zandee, invited me to share a trip to Zion National Park. What a beautiful place this is and I'll now have to return several more times just to experience more of what it has to offer.

Sometimes trips don't go according to plan. Or they don't go at all. That's what happened to my planned multiple-day backpacking trip I had planned to make earlier this summer. However, I'm thankful for the opportunity to tag along with a group of men to Piney Lake and then towards Upper Piney Lake for a few ...

For years, I have heard about the frozen Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, but had never made the trip because of busy schedule, poor timing, or pure forgetfulness. That has now changed.

I took a drive not knowing if I'd be car camping or backpacking or where exactly I'd go. There were a few places I wanted to visit so I ensured those were on the list.

winter 2012 - grand teton national park
February 16-19, 2012

A buddy and I headed to the Tetons for a planned six day trip. It didn't go according to plan. The snow storm was keeping us socked in, one of us broke a tripod, one of us got ill, one of us put a rip in his pants, one of us ripped some skin, one of us ...

One of the places I have always wanted to visit was Ice Lake Basin in the mighty San Juan Mountains. My wife and I took a quick backpacking trip to the basin and started at Clear Lake. We will definitely have to go back for a longer stay.

June 25-28, 2011

Spending a few days in The Palouse was an amazing time. Rolling hills, shades of green, and lots of wheat! It's a very rural area filled with photographic opportunities and this was my take during this summer season.

I was excited about this trip to the famed Mount Rainier to capture the plethora of wildflowers. After doing a lot of research on the area and finding the typical peak season, I booked my flight. However, it turns out we were several weeks early.

winter 2010 - grand teton national park
February 13-15, 2010

Grand Teton National Park was the location of my first winter solo trip. I knew it would be colder than my current equipment would allow for and given the dangers of backpacking in wintery conditions alone, I opted to camp in my car rather than hit the backcountry. It was a nice trip, though there was only ...
