Trip Reports

A Month in Patagonia - November-December 2007
From mid-November to mid-December 2007, I spent a month backpacking in Patagonia. During the first few weeks, I was hiking amongst the jagged peaks of the Fitz Roy Range in Parque Nacional los Glaciares near Chaltén, Argentina...
Colorado Fall Colors 2007

Autumn is probably the most spectacular season in the Colorado Rockies, as the vast fields of aspens turn bright yellow and orange under snowcapped mountain peaks. For the last several weeks, I've been searching for grand aspen vistas to photograph, mainly in the West Elk Mountains near Crested Butte, and San Juan Mountains around Telluride and Ouray...

Weminuche Wilderness Trek, Colorado - September 2007

Over a span of 7 days in late August/early September, I hiked alone through a high route in the Weminuche Wilderness of the San Juans. The mountains here are perhaps the most rugged and remote in all of Colorado...

Maroon Bells Four Pass Loop, Colorado - July 2007
This popular hike in the Elk Mountains near Aspen is referred to as the Four Pass Loop. It is about 25 miles long, and passes over four high mountain passes, circumnavigating the famous Maroon Bells fourteeners...

Grand Gulch, Utah - November 2006
This November I went on a four-day backpacking trip into the Grand Gulch, a major canyon that cuts through Cedar Mesa in southeast Utah. Like many canyons in this region, Grand Gulch is full of hidden Anasazi ruins and petroglyphs...
Columbine Lake, San Juans, Colorado - September 2006
This weekend I met fellow photographers Momo Vuyisich and his buddy Csaba for an overnight backpacking trip to Columbine Lake, in the San Juans near Silverton. The recent snowfalls, high elevation, and unsettled weather made for a chilly but spectacular trip...
Spring Riding 2006
Here are some photos from springtime backcountry snowboarding in the Front Range, Gore Range, and Sawatch Range of Colorado during the 2006 season.
Mount of the Holy Cross, Colorado - October 2003

Notch Mountain, in the Sawatch Range just south of Vail, Colorado, has a perfect front-and-center view of Mount of the Holy Cross and its east facing cross couloir, made famous in 1873 by legendary wilderness photographer William H...

Washington Cascades - 2001-2002

After graduating college in 2001, I moved to Washington state where I lived in Seattle for the summer, being unemployed and backpacking and exploring the great Cascade range as often as I could. During the winter I lived up near Stevens Pass where I worked at the ski resort and had the best winter of snowboarding in my life!

This was a period of time when I was just beginning to get more into photography...
