Mt Shuksan on Fuji 400 film. Looking at this photo now makes me want to head back here in the winter, camp up high, and try for a summit ski descent. Anyone keen? #35mm

Reminiscing on some great trips over the years, this particular climbing trip to a distant village in Western China. Goal for the fall: shove my hands and feet in lots of cracks.

Day 13 of 30. #BroncoSport_Ambassador We’ve had the privilege to get out and try some new activities, but of course @maizalimarock and I were stoked to get out and get some climbing in! This classic route in Mt Magazine State Park, Arkasas, made for an epic morning start, and then capped the day off riding trails with new friends in Mt Nebo State Park. Nothing like a good multi sport day! #statesofadventure

Quiet moments in the canyon, aqua green water below and the yellows and orange of sandstone above, a perfect combination of stillness and simplicity.

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing my good friend @thenuggetclimbing working on a project outside St George, Utah. Honestly, projecting sport routes really isn’t part of my climbing experience, but it’s an impressive feat to watch Steven working the moves on this stellar roof feature, which includes more than one feet off swing moves.

Each canyon has its own story to tell, a history before it was what we see today. The echos of the past live here, and I continue to return to try and hear their stories.

Hoping for some more of this action in the late season Cascades. Also, did you hear Canada is opening to vaccinated Americans?! Who’s going north??

Day 1 of 30. #broncosport_ambassador @maizalimarock and I have begun what will surely be a trip for the books. 30 days of incredible US State Park locations with a @fordbronco packed full of @marmot gear . Heading from Michigan to New Hampshire, cruising the coast till we hit North Carolina, a quick dip in the Gulf of Mexico before the long road to Utah, and… (well, you get the picture, more details of the route to come) The activity list is long, the coffees consumed list will be longer, and plenty of moments that I’m excited to share with you along the way. For now, our first day in Waterloo State Park was perfect with some friends bidding us bon voyage! If you want to meet up along the way, you know where to find me. #statesofadventure

I’ve found that putting some energy out into the universe to be a great way to make things happen in my life. Today, I’m manifesting a Grand Canyon paddling trip. Rivers have been high in my mind as of late, from spending time in boats with friends, to the books that I’m reading.
I applied for the GC lottery this summer but didn’t get a permit, but I will keep applying! If you want to join on a trip when the stars align, let me know!
As with most of my adventures, the first stop is chatting with a Gearhead over at @backcountry to figure out all the tricks of the trade.

I’m not sure if this was before or after the air raid by Kea, but I’ll never forget the sound of being surrounded in the dark by those ‘little’ birds.

I’ve been learning a lot of the history of the Grand Canyon reading the book Emerald Mile. The history of the Glen Canyon Dam, effectively creating Lake Powell, was and still is controversial, but the allure of the place still holds strong. “If there is a point to being in the canyon, it is not to rush but to linger, suspended in a blue-and-amber haze of in-between-ness, for as long as one possibly can.”

I am continuing to partner with @backcountry in hopes to encourage you to get outside and find your backcountry, wherever that may be. Use code WILL15 for 15% off your first purchase at! (exclusions apply ) #findyourbackcountry
