Rock above, air below. Rappelling off a fun little four pitch climb in southern Utah. Shooting for @backcountry
Flying all three sails en route to Hawaii. One of my favorite seats in the house.
Sailing sun protection level 100.
The serenity of a Baja sunrise.
Hot springs with the fishes. And @caarliann_
Alpine lake reflections, alpenglow, and the soft sounds of a cool autumn breeze.
Barefoot running through one of Hawaii’s bamboo forests. Summer 2020, post pandemic sail.
A little cabin, nestled in the mountains, at the shore of a lake. Does it get much better?
When you stay out too late looking for coconut trees.
In search of coconuts.
The smell of land. I’ll never forget the sensation of smelling plants and soil for the first time after a month at sea. Before we could even see the Big Island, shrouded in clouds, the smells of land drifted on the waves.
Mt Assiniboine, BC. Anyone else want to climb this one day?
I shot this photo in the middle of the night, sailing towards the center of the Milky Way thousands of miles from the nearest light source. As you can imagine the camera moves with the boat, creating those interesting star trails in the sky while the boat stayed motionless relative to the camera. Nights like these were common on Velella, no lights to be seen but for the stars in the sky, a dim glow from the instruments humming away. Trying to catch some sleep, often filled with the most vivid dreams.
A little jaunt down to the watering hole.
When you’re done fishing for the day and need to cool off.
There’s plenty of time for reflection on a long sail, lots to look at, but it’s rare that something needs your attention. (But when it does, it needs attention now!)
Channeling the inner Walter Mitty
Forest roads and Pacific Northwest green.
