↟ Mountain Backroads ↟ | could spend forever wandering these mountains. Heading out to Mexico on monday, hopefully I get a chance to capture some unique landscapes!
taking in the first signs of winter ❄️
Fire, the best way to break up any hike or paddle. A little down time mixed with some good conversation, yes please. It’s just too bad we forgot the coffee!
Evening sun versus morning sun shining gloriously on some spectacular peaks. Unfortunately we were in a bowl and not quite high enough to get the true sunset or sunrise but what we did see still made my soul sing with happiness. Which do you prefer?
Haven’t been creating much this week...just working a ton and making some plans. It’s been good but I miss creating and especially miss my photography tutorials. A new one will be coming tomorrow for sure though. Thank you all for 4000 followers. Pretty neat. These shots are from earlier this year when I summitted Mt Adams. Much love XOXO
One of the hardest and most valuable lessons I’ve learned on this journey is to love myself -sometimes more than anything else. It oozes narcissism and elicits judgment when it’s said out loud, but it’s important. Entrepreneurship is a lonely journey, not only because of physical isolation, but because it can be difficult for people to relate to your experiences. Your stresses and successes are very different from each other’s. The road is hardly ever paved – it’s full of holes and bumps, steep slogs and deep ditches and the thing you’re chasing, that dream you’re working toward, is often around the corner out of sight. The pack you’re wearing is often paralyzingly heavy and there are always voices whispering (or shouting) their opinions of doubt at you. You must always be your own biggest cheerleader, coaxing and willing yourself to put one foot in front of the other, make decisions about which fork in the road to choose, and remind yourself why you’re on this path. Because no one can do that for you, and if you can’t do it for yourself, then who the hell will? #getfound
The word ‘listen’ also contains the same letters as the word ‘silent’.
Nothin like a little cabin time to keep the inspiration flowing. Working on drawing up prints for 2020 next week. Any ideas what’s in store for imagery?!
So I swore up and down and sideways that I would never do a winter overnight but does it really count if you sleep in a hut heated by a wood stove? What a beautiful way to spend the Remembrance Day long weekend. Mountains, friends, snow adventures, spiked hot chocolate and games! Bring it on winter, I’m ready! ❄️🏔
I think the snow is serious business this time. Like, it's here to stay.
Is this how you truck? Thinking of giving my tripod a name so I can credit it for shots like this... taking suggestions 😂 || taken on @sonyalpha @sigmaphoto

Lily pad sky.
Looks similar to a pic I took of Tyler on the Wathaman river a few years back, and is the cover of my website...but this is actually a new pic of @jgedir
from this summer on the Pink River. After paddling a section of whitewater, we came out onto these narrows beautifully filled with lillies. It was so surreal and sunny that we decided to set up camp on the rock point on the right side of this pic - was a good call. #exploresask @tourismsask #lilypads #canoe
The difference between the impossible and possible lies in a person’s determimation.

Teleportation. What are your thoughts? I can’t imagine anyone not loving the idea of being able to instantly travel to faraway places. Except perhaps everyone who owns or helps operate an airline, bus, train, cab, etc. I suppose gas prices would plummet to what they might have been 50-some-odd years ago. But would anyone own a car anymore? Would there be anywhere to rent one? I don’t think we’ll see this advancement in my lifetime, (I’ll be 29 on 11/29) but if we ever did, and companies like Enterprise and Subaru stuck around, I’d still rent and buy their cars. I’d still map out elaborate, roundabout road trips through towns I've never heard of, bound for National Parks, Monuments, and more. I’d still stop for Smartfood popcorn and sunflower seeds at hopefully still crowded truck stops across the nation. And I hope I’d still see RVs and couples sprawling fold-up maps across the hoods of their cars on the side of two-lane highways that cut through corn fields and wide-open desert plains. I hope I wouldn’t be the only die-hard roadtripper wanting to witness all the nooks and crannies of the roads and all the little towns that decorate them. All the kind people you never expected to meet while pumping gas or snapping pics of a quirky roadside attraction. Sure, I’d give anything to be able to blink and be in Japan, but when I got there, I’d want 5 wheels and a full tank raring to go. It’s all of those details you never expected to see along the way that make your trip to the Grand Canyon or the Great Wall completely unique to you. #RoadtrippersForLife #RoadWarriors360 #RoadtripNation #ArcticTumbleweed
Seeing these majestic animals up-close-and-personal in the wild was an unreal experience! 🦁🦏🦒 🦓 Scroll through these shots & tell me which is your favourite 📷 The lurking tall horse is definitely mine 😂
It's always the little things that can make a place memorable or are so iconic.
Like the telephone booths and double decker buses in London, or yellow taxis in NYC.
For me, it was these red mailboxes in Denmark. As you can probably tell, I love red things and they always catch my eye. I thought these were just so cool.
What little things stood out to you on your travels?

We skirted the shoreline blown away by the beauty and calm that surrounded us. All the while reminding ourselves that some people dream of these scenes or experiences. To us, this was just another Tuesday morning.
