  • Climbing Clements Mountain

    Every once in awhile I like (love) to take off my camera and binoculars and trade it for the lightest running pack I have. On Sunday, Kristen and I lightly loaded up our running packs and headed for the hills. We arrived up at Logan Pass in Glacier National Park along with a string of […]

  • Bridalveil Fall

    Waterfalls can vary wildly from month to month, and even season to season. Yosemite National Park is home to a host of incredible waterfalls and Bridalveil Fall is part of this collection of wonders. I went to Yosemite National Park in June of 2015 to a waterfall that was the lightest of veils, then again […]

  • A Few Of My Favorite (Hiking) Things

    Every year I log hundreds of miles on the trail. Through those miles, some gear rises to the top that I end up absolutely loving. Here are a few of them… There are a lot of sites/bloggers out there who do extensive reviews of products. They’ll list the “Top 10 day packs” and review them, […]

  • Mt. Reynolds and Dragon’s Tail

    Mt. Reynolds in Glacier National Park stands prominently above Logan Pass. A ridgeline extends to the south forming another wonderful summit called Dragon’s Tail. While Dragon’s Tail isn’t officially recognized as a high point by the USGS, it is by the Glacier Mountaineering Society. For that reason, and just because it’s there and amazing, we […]

  • Sky Rim Trail via Specimen Creek

    Specimen Creek, one of the larger creeks in the northwestern corner of Yellowstone National Park, is a great way to access the incredible Sky Rim Trail. Pair it with the Black Butte Trail and you have an epic day hike with petrified trees, meadows, forest, a sketchy traverse, views, and a great chance to see […]

  • Back to Yellowstone

    I’m about ready to head south again. As smoke from innumerable fires both inside and out of Glacier fill the skies, I’m thankful that I’m spending September in Yellowstone National Park. My blogging has slowed as I’ve doubled down on my hiking, but that will bring hiking blogs all throughout the offseason. Yellowstone is a […]

  • Hiking with the Panasonic FZ1000

    After hiking for miles and miles with my DSLR setup of a Canon 7D, 70-200mm 2.8L, 2X Extender, and Tokina 11-17mm, I needed something else that took great photos and video, wasn’t heavy, and didn’t take up a lot of space. I’ve been very pleased with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000. With a 1″ sensor, […]

  • Northern Hawk Owl on Camas Road

    The wind blew all night as a new system rolled into town. The sun arose to a blue winter sky and crisp air. I looked towards the mountains and knew I must head into Glacier before working. I grabbed my camera and drove up with no particular destination in mind. After wandering around in my […]

  • Sperry Chalet 2013

    Sperry Chalet

    Sperry Chalet opened to the public this year on July 10th, but Kathie and her crew who run the chalet opened it one night earlier to help us raise money for the Glacier National Park Conservancy. The weather was perfect for us as we headed up. It got a little warm, but I’ll take sunshine […]

  • Anniversary in Canada

    When trying to figure out where to go and what to do for our anniversary, Kristen said, “Would you mind if I just planned something and surprised you?”. I love surprises and am not the greatest planner, so I jumped on it with the caveat that next year, I would do the planning. So last […]
