|fall colors 2012 - colorado
September 28 - October 1, 2012
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.
|glacier national park - montana
August 23-30, 2012
My friend, Tim Zandee, invited me to share a trip to Glacier National Park. How could I decline that?
|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 ...
|ice lake basin - colorado
August 12-14, 2011
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.
|elk mountains - colorado
July 16-17, 2011
Needing a weekend away, my wife and I took a quick trip to Crested Butte and then on to the iconic Maroon Bells.
|the palouse - washington
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.
|mount rainier national park - washington
July 29-31, 2010
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 ...
|great sand dunes national park - colorado
January 22-24, 2010
This marks the first winter camping trip I've done and I was excited to go on it, but a bit concerned I wouldn't stay warm enough. Despite the cold temperatures (~6F as a low) it was a trip well-worth it.
|fall colors 2009 - grand teton national park
September 26-27, 2009
This year for the fall colors gold rush I had to take a quick trip because of the several longer trips I've done this year. So, instead of staying local in Colorado, my housemate and I spent the weekend at a place that's quickly becoming one of my favorites - Grand Teton National Park.
|kaua'i - hawai'i
September 12-20, 2009
I was blessed with the opportunity to spend a week on the island of Kaua'i in Hawai'i. Without ever being there before and spending the past several years in the land-locked states, I spent some time with long exposures and water.
|elk mountains - colorado
July 27-30, 2009
Summer is always great for viewing wildflowers and this year was to be around Maroon Bells.
