Maroon Bells and Summit County Exploring
7/19/18

In some of my blogs, I’ve mentioned my life-long friend, Matt, and the adventures we’ve been on. Every summer, we receive permission from our wives to hike and explore about once a week. Some of those trips are long day-trips and some turn into overnighters...

The Beauty of Rattlesnake Canyon and Rattlesnake Arches
7/21/18

It started several months ago when I was researching “off the grid” places to shoot. Colorado National Monument had been one of my favorite locations as I love the canyons and red rock...

Grays Peak - Prelude to Something...
7/11/18

Ten years ago a buddy and I hiked Grays and Torreys Peak, meeting at midnight at a central location, then starting the hike around 2 am under the full moon. The goal was to enjoy a full moonset to the west and a sunrise to the east while standing on top of the word...

What Makes a Good Landscape Image (in my opinion)
6/16/18

I get asked about once every week or so if I put on workshops. While I have shared my experiences and tips in the past with others (working tours), and while think it would be fun (as well as make a little extra money), right now, between business keeping me busy and two young daughters I want to spend time with, I just don’t have extra free minutes...

Dreaming of the Maroon Bells in Summer
4/14/18

It is 21 degrees and snowing in Winter Park, Colorado, and I'm already dreaming of warmer days and summer hikes. One of my favorite places in the Maroon Bells Wilderness, especially the walk from Maroon Lake to Crater Lake...
