November 2017: 2 Months of Backpacking in Colorado
For all of August and September 2017, my wife and I lived out of our truck and tent while traveling around and backpacking in our great state of Colorado. We did over a dozen backpacking trips in various mountain ranges throughout the state, including the Flat Tops, Gore Range, Sawatch Range, San Juans, Sangre de Cristos, and Indian Peaks.
I have finally finished the enormous task of editing all the photos, and have posted the very best photos from our two months of backpacking Colorado here.
October 2017: New Photos from the Alps
In July we spent three wonderful weeks hut trekking in the northern limestone Alps of Bavaria (Germany) and Tyrol (Austria). We hiked through the Karwendel range, crossed over the rugged Kaisergebirge, toured the Berchtesgaden mountains, and traversed the Dachstein — sleeping and eating in alpine huts all along the way with a few stays in villages in between. Though not as tall as the central ranges of the Alps, these jagged limestone mountains boast ultra rugged profiles that rival the famous Dolomites in Italy.

October 2016: New Photos from the Canadian Rockies, Yukon, Alaska, and more
From June-September 2016 we drove over 12,000 miles (19,000+ km), from Colorado to Alaska and back, through Nevada, northern California, Oregon, Washington, the Canadian Rockies, and the Yukon. See the collection of my favorite photos from this trip here!
September 2015: New Photos from Bosnia, Montenegro, and Croatia
In July and August 2015, we spent a month traveling in the former Yugoslavian countries of Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Croatia. Some highlights include trekking in the Maglic, Durmitor, and Prokletije mountain ranges, rafting the Tara River, and relaxing along the Adriatic Coast. See the collection of photos from the trip here.
May - July 2015: Exhibit at Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum
I am honored to announce that the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum in Golden, Colorado is currently displaying an exhibit of my photography in the entrance hall of the museum through the end of July.
A joint venture of the American Alpine Club, the Colorado Mountain Club, and the National Geographic Society, the 3,500-square-foot museum is the centerpiece of the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado. The museum is the only one in the United States exclusively dedicated to rock climbing and mountaineering, with exhibits on history, mountain cultures, safety and equipment, and more.
Considering the nature of the venue, I selected seven “high altitude” photos to display, from locations including Colorado, Nepal, Peru, Patagonia, and Switzerland.
The museum is located at 710 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401. Keep an eye out for their once-a-month “Thirsty Thursday” event each month offering gear, beer, live music, and free museum admission!
January 2015: New Himalaya Photos
We recently returned from 2 months of traveling and trekking in Nepal, and I have just published a new gallery of photos from the Himalaya!
I also just posted a bonus gallery of photos from the islands and beaches of Thailand, where we relaxed after our time in Nepal.
May - July 2014: Exhibit at Steamboat Art Museum

Several of my prints are now on display at the Robert Anderson Gallery in Cherry Creek in Denver, Colorado.
