Under the ledge

Last weekend we headed down into the Canyonlands in Utah. It is one of my very favorite places to be and one of the most pristine environments I have experienced. Where we went is definitely the road less traveled. In fact, it’s impossible to get to for most vehicles. Usually, it’s super photogenic, but it was cloudy the majority of the time. I still took a ton of photos, but I thought I’d try making them black and white. I did save some good color photos for the end, though (and a couple crazy videos).


And here are some of the color photos that were just too good to desaturate.

Here’s a video of our last camp sight. It was quite a doozy. (And we had to be super cautious at night.)

The last video is me riding on the bumper of the Jeep while Keya tried to give me a few mud showers.

This trip was intense, but equally fun. We had to bring our own food, water, and poop bags. We were roughly 40 (very slow very hard) miles from the ranger station and around 100 to the nearest gas station.
I would be happy to answer any questions you have about doing a trip like this (except the location). I also could be convinced to join expedition trips like this. Let me know what you think about the trip or the photos!

The Maze

Last weekend, Keya and I went on a bit of an expedition down into the Maze District in the Canyonlands. It was unbelievable. If you’re thinking about going, you’ll probably want a pretty high clearance vehicle, as much water as you can carry, a few good maps, and maybe some extra gas. It’s pretty dang remote in there. I think the closest gas station to our camp site was 99 miles away and there aren’t any rangers around to help you out. Enjoy the photos. 🙂

I’ve been a bit radio silent on this blog, so here are a bunch of photos and a little about what I’ve been up to.

Oh, and Joshua brought his nifty drone with us when we went snowshoeing and cut together this quick video.

What’s next?

Well, let’s just say it involves going way the heck off grid this weekend. Will post about it next week. 🙂

My best photos from 2016

Here are my favorite photos from my travels this year. Not all are the best, but I think I caught a few gems. I recommend opening the gallery and just scrolling through. They should all have a comment and location. Let me know what you think!
