Colorado National Monument
I feel like Colorado National Monument is the red-headed stepchild of Colorado; Neglected and ignored simply because there are so many other beautiful places throughout the state. The park only sees a small fraction of visitors that other major national parks see and despite driving through Grand Junction ten times a year, I wasn't ... Read More
Desert Shenanigans - The Annual Spring Moab Trip
Sunset over Canyonlands National Park, 35 miles of mountain biking, an afternoon floating down the Colorado River baking in the sun, a hundred mortars, and sunrise over Arches National Park.
I love the springtime desert shenanigans...

Hatch Point & the Anticline Overlook
I've probably camped in Kane Creek Canyon outside Moab, Utah, close to twenty times over the past eight years and many of those afternoons have been spent drinking some happy-hour beers while watching the sun dip behind the cliffs of Hurrah Pass and the Anticline Overlook. There are no ... Read More

Canyonlands National Park, Moab, UT
I was relatively new to photography back in 2012 when I photographed a Mesa Arch sunrise and I had been itching to shoot it again because now I look back at my 'prized picture' from that morning and all I see are the technical blemishes and poor post ... Read More
Courthouse Towers Sunset
Arches National Park, Utah
After realizing we couldn't make it to Canyonlands in time for sunset, we were hoping to at least get some shots in Castle Valley on the way to camp. The sky was flat gray and looking really bleak as we drove down Route 128 on our way in to Moab. We had already succumbed ... Read More
The Best Views I've Ever Seen, Part I
I keep finding myself writing, "It was one of the best views I've ever seen!" or at least some variation of the phrase. A lot of times it's probably a slight exaggeration of excitement from a fresh trip, but not always. It got me thinking that if I had to choose, ... Read More
Winter in Rocky Mountain National Park
With an itch to get the hell out of town after the holiday rush, we decided to head up to Estes Park to get away for a weekend in January. I had always wanted to experience winter in Rocky Mountain National Park from the east side, but with Trail Ridge Road closed ... Read More
Maho Beach, Saint Martin
As I originally said, flying between Saint Kitts & Nevis and Denver is a real pain in the ass. After a quick puddle-jump from Saint Kitts (and literally a five minute flight from Nevis), we had six-and-a-half hours to kill in Saint Martin.
Maho beach is one of the few places in the world where ... Read More
An amazing sunset over Lower Blue Lake in the Sneffels Wilderness of southwestern Colorado.
