In the middle of a cold-snap

Sometimes it's difficult to tell if Mother Nature is beckoning me to explore around that next mysterious corner or telling me to stay away. The bottom line is there is no else I'd rather be than right there at the precipice of that question. 

This past weekend I spent the better part of a few days with my good friend Carl, wrestling with this very question in -15 below temperatures. 

Here's to feeling alive!

Still blows my mind how many Californian's have NO clue about the Eastern Sierras; I go there often and California folks ask me what state I was in. 

I've climbed and backpacked in this area more times than I can keep track of, and this trip, by far, was the most magical and mysterious. I felt lucky to have whiteness such incredible beauty and power. 

In Mexico for Roger Clyne

Over the past 4 years, I've become the de facto official photographer for Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers - shooting them through out the year and annually in Mexico, on the Sea of Cortez. 

Needless to say, this is got to be one my favorite gigs. Not to mention that Roger and his family are just incredible; late nights sipping (his) tequila on his veranda overlooking the Sea with great conversation and good vibes.  

They been bringing down me and my family for the past few years to Mexico to shoot and have some epic fun. 

More from this shoot is soon to follow.
