The Grand Canyon gives nothing so easily. Some could tell you that it has taken too much. In this land of extremes, one MUST learn the grace of balance,perseverance, and patience.

Grand Canyon Life Coach : Pilot

 GRAND CANYON AS A LIFE COACH

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 your decisions ...

Basking in the Flow, and the Glow

 29 Mile Rapid in Grand Canyon National Park 

 Lower Owyhee Wild and Scenic River, OR

 Butte Creek, near Chico CA

The past few weeks have been full. FULL of adventure, new rivers and swollen creeks, shared laughter, a growing love, and glowing, deep and resonating light at every turn. Across ...

Spring Canyon BLM Wild

 So Proud to see Utah’s BLM Wild campaign using my Spring Creek image so well, and for such a deserved cause. 

Spring Creek Canyon carves through the Markagunt Plateau just south of Cedar City, Utah. The slot canyons that ensue rival those of nearby Zion National Park and ...

Trip Report: Tanner Trail to Tatahatso Wash ~ Grand Canyon

IMG_0792_feet.redwall_opp.buckfarm.web.jpg

 In the 15 months since my last solo hike (Toroweap to Pearce), I had nearly forgotten why I go out into the Grand Canyon and walk by myself. There is just a very certain and distinct quality to the experience held by the solo hiker in Grand Canyons Backcountry,  an ...

Paseo Wild II

 Paseo Wild: 4 adventure conservationists travel across the Grand Canyon along the path of a mountain lion, past springs and seeps sourced from ancient aquifers, spying endangered and endemic species, and clawing our way up rough routes and through locusts. What for? Tuning in to the Canyon, thinking bigger, in ...

Good Advice

 As I prepare for my next Trek and a new route in Grand Canyon I remember the Tomasis words of advice~

Use the following incomplete list to intuitively justify aborting the trip to the obscure route or summit(s) of the day:
It’s too far, too scary, too hot ...

These are the places we hang out

 Where the light is reflected, and the rocks glow. Where the redwall is the reddest and the shade is the deepest. Where the canyon wren sings and cliff rose blooms. 

 Somewhere between where everything drops out below you, and a jagged skyline closes in above you. Where the stars are ...

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.

This is the very first patch of real, raw alpine landscape after the (relatively) low slog through the Mammoth area for the north bound Sierra High Route hiker.

Talus for days, John Muirs Cousin (twice removed), glowing fire clouds, freezing swims.

 

All in a day on the Sierra High Route

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.

How would you like to see a tramway ...

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 ...
