When I look at this photo all I can think about is how cold we were - but when I think of the trip as a whole all I can remember is how much fun we had and how beautiful the journey was.... well after the clouds finally lifted and we were able to see more than 2 meters in any one direction.

When I was younger I climbed nearly full time - giving everything I had to the sport.... now life offers other challenges and rewards - but I sure miss climbing 250+ days a year - looking thru my archives I stumbled onto this pic of finishing up one of Red Rock's all time classic lines, "The Original Route" on the beautiful Rainbow Wall.... man it makes me long for time on the rock and the lessons it brings.

Multiple month expeditions are hard they require planning, passions, gear, persistence, time and of course gear - but more than they require friendships and trust. I am so thankful for both of these important elements from the team - this weekend we celebrate + educated at the as we bring a short film to life and to the public on the big screen - it's PSA style piece and not the final film - yet like those two important ingredients of an expedition it's a crucial part of the whole. Please take the time to follow the link in my profile ☝🏼 & let the Bureau of Land Management know how you feel about a proposed 225 mile new road thru the Brooks Range for an open copper pit mine. thank you - for the love support and most of all the trust to get us this far!

This week I learned that a mentor and friend passed after complications from a brain tumor. "Running" was someone who loved people and had a certain unique style, you can tell its a Running shot from the first glance - the way he used light, contrast and the extreme connections he had with his subjects is clear as the glow in their eyes. He had a love of the cowboy lifestyle and I am posting this pic of my dear friend to honor Running's love of capturing the unique beauty in the world. Rest well old friend I look forward to continuing to study your archives and carry on the tradition of walking somewhat aimlessly, yet with intention in the downtown streets of Flagstaff. With love and respect Rest In Peace old friend, you will be missed.

"Look closely you will see a dinosaur down there.... " this is what Willa - granddaughter said when we saw this viewpoint at sundown in - you know Willa is right, this place is unworldly & will now remain an intact ecosystem as a new national park in Chile - allowing us all to find our inner childhood dreams.
