A Pre dawn ascent of Half Dome. Arriving at 4am we waited till the morning light filtered into the horizon before climbing the cables to catch the sunrise from the peak.
Ready for some fall foliage in the next couple months. The Eastern Sierras are calling my name.
My favorite kind of road - empty, winding, and leading to the unknown.
Slot Canyons are some my favorite natural formations - and I am always stoked to find them in the California Desert. Squeezing through tiny passageways to see what’s around the corner is a fun mystery to unravel.
Some of the most difficult photos to take are also the most rewarding. Getting to this viewpoint was a lot of work, and took multiple attempts, but finally making it here made it all worth it. Yosemite still continues to surprise me with its awe inspiring locations.
It’s been about a month since I’ve shared any of my work on here - I’ve been spending time in the places that make me the happiest and really focusing on taking in the experiences in front of me. This was from a night all alone under the Milky Way high in the Sierras.
Some shots from one my favorite mornings this year. Even after a full night of misadventure involving single track 4x4 trails, locked gates, and no sleep - experiencing this place high above the clouds and being lit by the morning sun was all worth it.
Got the summer started right with a weekend on the water.
As the summer sets in SoCal I’m beginning to miss the misty green, cold temps, and empty trailheads of the PNW in the winter.
This morning in the desert was well worth the walk.
Thinking of better days spent high above Yosemite Valley
I like to think of this road as a time machine - it transports you to ancient redwood groves that feel like they are frozen in the Jurassic period, and contain 5 of the largest trees on earth. They have been given mythical names like El Viejo del Norte and Lost Monarch, and remain a testament to a forgotten time. (If you do visit these very special groves, please stay on trail ✌️)
Magical mornings on the Pacific Coast.
After a little wall scramble @trail and I made it on to the wall above Corona Arch. Being at this perspective really put into focus just how huge Corona is.
New perspectives of familiar views. On my second visit to this place I worked on finding some new angles of the serpentine canyon that was exposed by the low water levels.
Exploring on the Oregon Coast never disappoints. @bryanmrossi and I got here a bit early for sunrise not realizing we lost almost a full hour of sunlight being so far North from SoCal. Either way it was exciting to watch this cove slowly come into view in the morning light.
Spent last weekend disperse camping high above the clouds on the California Coast. The conditions were unreal and made the entire weekend feel like being in a dream.
Down a small trail and through a sandy wash we found slot canyon magic.
