Do you have trouble appreciating the little things in life? Do you feel like you could be a little more grateful? Does your life seem dull, seemingly worthless, and lacking in direction? Is it sometimes hard hard to realize the affects of ...

Grand Canyoneering: Getting in Deep

Grand Canyoneering: stretching the mind, testing capabilities. Turning the key, dropping in and unlocking secrets, hidden treasures folded into the cracks. Feels so good, to get ever deeper into the Grand Canyon. Truly, a place that one can never outgrow, or see all of. But I’ll keep trying. 

Fresh Snow, fresh year

 2015 started with a rare and very beautiful snow event, which blanketed the Grand Canyon with snow all the way down to the Colorado River, 4500 feet below

The Invitation

  It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool ...

Yampa River May 2014

 I’ve been told that I would love it ever since I started boating. The Yampa. Wild and free,  it’s the only undamned major tributary of the Colorado River Drainage. Meandering a twisted path through a desolate land of commanding sandstone bluffs and soft desert meadows, the river flowed with the ...

3 Strikes on Plateau Point

Last week I had my yearly cross canyon hike, and as I baked in the sun, sweated out the humidity, moving slowly along the trails, soaking all the sights in. I watched the storms move in and out every afternoon, building each day, winds would pick up and swirling clouds ...

Little Colorado River Confluence Collection

In reflection of recent proceedings with the Grand Canyon Escalade project, and greatest hopes for continued protection of Grand Canyon I have made a collection of images that resonates the magic and solitude that is the Confluence of the Little Colorado River.

2 weeks~ friends and random travels

Old friends visiting, and welcoming of a new friend on the South Rim, followed by a hike down to Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the canyon and back up again, moving to a new place in Flagstaff, and then a wonderful weekend on the Paria Plateau and North Rim ...

Photo of the week

I’ve been trying to build a new portfolio to showcase my Grand Canyon photos, but came to a quick halt when I realized 

that I don’t have a decent photo of the most popular/populated place in the Canyon, Phantom Ranch.

So, I went out and got one.  Does this mean I’ll ...

stormy solstice sunset

Three perspective photos from one view, on the Winter Solstice. The shortest day of the year, yes, but this storm sure packed a punch when the sun went down!
