@benny.13.13 and I took a walk in the mountains yesterday. We also got in a few turns. #untrackedexperience #panhandlebackcountry #teamtomahawk
#tbt to...Sunday. Storm light in the Blue Mountains. #obozfootwear
‘Tis the season when a man’s thoughts turn towards riding his road road bike in the garage—well, actually skiing, but sometimes you can’t get to the mountain. There’s a zen-like focus to it that I find to be a good antidote to the frantic nature of ski and holiday seasons. #iamspecialized #newyorkermagazine
Alpenglow in the Blue Mountains this morning. I hope everyone who was looking for snow this weekend found it! #obozfootwear #truetothetrail #wheretonext #scenicwa
I don’t usually like taking photos like this, and I don’t have much use for them. I’d rather have a rad action shot of a way better rider than me. But sometimes the conditions are too good to pass up the ol’ stoic selfie. (Just visualize a legit rider doing a manual where I’m standing.) #lovespokane #spokaneplayground #freehubmag #iamspecialized
Backlit fog and frost-covered pines, Riverside State Park. #lovespokane #spokaneplayground #spokanedoesntsuck
The lack of snow in the mountains is a bit distressing, but it’s hard to complain about the sunny cold weather (my favorite). The riding has been great (despite what my metal plate might say) and the sunrises even better. #spokanedoesntsuck #lovespokane #spokaneplayground
#tbt to one of my favorite shots from last ski season, at @redresort. It’s always a challenge to make something compelling in gray, socked-in light, Tweaky Pete (@tweakypete ) and I made the best of it. #redresort #kootrocks #powderhighway
I left a lot of negative space in the center so you can add your own John Muir quote. (Or Ghostface.) #obozfootwear #truetothetrail #wheretonext
Me and mountain mahogany, Blue Mountains. Mountain mahogany is one of the oldest-living flowering shrubs on Earth—up to 1500 years! It’s also one of my favorite shrubs. (Yes, I have favorite shrubs.) #obozfootwear #truetothetrail #wheretonext

Sagebrush and sunset, Northrup Canyon. #obozfootwear #truetothetrail #wheretonext
Sunset over Steamboat Rock State Park in central Washington. The sagebrush steppe of central Washington is one of my favorite landscapes, and while it’s easy to tune it out while you’re speeding by on the highway, there are a lot of rewards if you get out and explore. Anyone have a favorite coulee-country hike? #obozfootwear #truetothetrail #wheretonext
I’m learning to love November because there are zero expectations—fall color frenzy is over and powder madness hasn’t quite set in. And every once in awhile November delivers. #lovespokane #spokaneplayground #spokanedoesntsuck
