A great day this week out shooting photos in the slot canyons. Always enjoy a great group to be hanging with and able to be with @twistedarchproduction shooting for @northwashoutfitters is fantastic.
Baby slot canyon at the top of Utah . . Up up up, all the way to Cana... wait, we're not going to Canada anymore. Where does up go if not to Canada @co_basten ?! . . . #whereiscanada #utahcanyons #slotcanyons #womenwhoexplore #womenwhocanyoneer #climbup #exploreoutdoors #exploremore #northwash #northwashutah #gettingout #sleepinthedirt #henrymountains
Hard to get lost down here - which is good considering I was walking around with my mouth open rather than paying attention to where my feet were taking me . . #exploreoutdoors #exploringutah #utahcanyons #utah #northwashutah #northwash #leprechauncanyon #slotcanyons #slotcanyon #gettingout #adventuremore #sleepinthedirt #womenwhoexplore #womenwhocanyoneer #canyoneering #stripes #striations #feelingsmall #sandinmyshoes
Henry Mountains from above Butler Canyon - after months on The PCT it was incredibly freeing to explore where there was no path . #titusdanielman #henrymountains #utah #utahcanyons #exploringwithfriends #exploringutah #gettingout #liveoutdoors #sleepinthedirt #butlercanyon #northwash #northwashutah #canyoneering #climbingwalls #view #views
Okay- 3 pictures, same anchor, different views-Here is an interesting one... had to get a little inventive with anchor craft with this one... a little physics and a very soft start. So this is a releasable anchor using the @edelrid canyon guide bag with a 300’ section of 7.5mm phantom rope from @rescue_craft @tacmed_solutions - which weighed in at about 6 lbs. we attached the rappel line to the bottom and the @sterlingrope RIT 900 release line to the top. There was a natural geometry ditch that was about a foot deep- so we shoved the bag down in it, placed two tombstone rocks in front of bag- weighing it and ran the rappel and release lines over the rocks. Obviously did soft starts- when we pulled to release the bag- it pulled from the lower portion of the bag- bag flipped up, rocks fell down into ditch and bag pulled over smooth. If @currahee_rescue_group had to rate this one- it would be a longer “ehhhhhhh”. @element_rescue @climbingninja2 #canyoneering #canyon #verticality #mountainlife #LPAR_not_it #disruptiverescue #physics #sar #techrescue #roperescue #highangle #utahcanyons #northwashutah #hanksville #utahisrad #utahgram #optoutside #rescuecartel
Canyoneering is a team sport #desertmonkeys #canyoneering #northwashutah
Posting two images. Commission of a sister and brother. Telling the tale through paint of their coming of age. Where “Sammy” is the free spirit, “Cole” is rooted in nature. Sammy is painted with loose abandonment and water abounds, Cole has massive amounts of earthly elements throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing both of them, through images provided by their mom, as we talked about what was important and to include in the piece. Luckily I was given a green light to “do my thing and I think I succeed. Cole’s piece is 30” x 36”, Acrylic and mixed media on wood. The entire piece was to depict a young man, and intuitively the paint directed me to what was important and what was not needed. Especially in the three figures, clearly the same person, two of them wearing his great grandfather’s Stetson hat.  I played with the medium to recreate the granite, the desert, the mountains, the red rocks and organic flow and layers found throughout the trails in Southern Utah and Colorado. Sammy’s art is three separate 12” x 12” panels, acrylic on wood. The inspiration came from Sammy, as she did her thesis on the David Fincher palette, which became the starting point for her portrait. Also included is her love of the island she now resides, Menorca, Spain.  Her amazing energy will always resound with her as I strived to capture these best of times that will define her soul.

Would you wander the technical desert canyons with me? Nature's obstacle courses release my inner child who yearns to adventure while also testing my ability to be a sound adult with the responsibility of my group's safety and I absolutely love when these two sides of me collide. This is one of my ideas of a perfect weekend! Things don't usually go perfectly according to plan and that's half the adventure, being able to put your adventurous spirit and survival skills to the test! 😊❤️🏜 **Disclaimer** All 4 of us are experienced climbers and outdoor adventurers and I would not recommend our choice of footwear if you are a beginner or if you are not confident in your skills or ability to adapt should things go wrong 👍🏼 #canyoneering #utahisrad #utahcanyons #northwashutah #hogcanyon #rappelling #canyoning #abseiling #teva #chacos #crocs #canyonsincrocs #backcountryemployee #goatworthy #adventurefootwear #adventureon #adventure #hobbies #climbers

Stopping to let the eye graze where silence, a pounding heart, and pure bliss are the only vibrations to be heard. #rei1440project #goatworthy
Stemming, squeezing, and climbing through the most beautiful corkscrews and narrows. Shenanigans is one hell of a slot. #enterifyoudare #slotcanyon #canyoneering #uglydsrt #godeep P: @dsrt_mtn_wtr
