My last week or so has been dedicated to finally getting my wilderness first responder cert, so I'm glad I can get back on the trails, in the rivers, and on some rocks now that it's over!

We've weathered so much together over the years. But I'll be honest, nothing tests a relationship quite like living in a 225 square foot camper. Despite the fact I can't avoid you when I'm mad at you, I wouldn't trade these moments for the world! 💚 😘 @workcamperninja 📷 by @thehikingmermaid
Time Of Your Life - 1.18.18
So make the best of this test and don’t ask why. It’s not a question but a lesson learned in time.
Today one of my best friends leaves to go back home. And I just want to say how crazy it is that we can connect with people we just met more than people we’ve known our whole lives. If you have someone like that in your life, definitely cherish them. Friends/people like that are very hard to come by now days in my opinion. But I just want to say again thank you for everything man. You’ve definitely left your mark here. But I’ll see you later brother. Have a safe flight.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here. I’ve been in a weird place creatively and even emotionally. Not sure if it’s the transition of moving from California back to Oregon or my depression or what, but it’s got me thinking a lot about the direction I’m going. I haven’t come to any solid conclusions and not really sure I ever will but I just know I have to keep moving and remember that the sun still rises even through the rain.
Thanks for all the love and support and Happy (belated) New Year!

Close your eyes. Feel the sunlight penetrate your exterior. Let your shoulders fall. A breath in, a breath out. Embrace your freedom.

I’ve certainly fallen hard for Delaware, but I can’t tell you how many people I’ve talked to who have no idea what is here. That’s in part why I think photography is so important. How can someone come to love and appreciate something, if they don’t know it exists? A photo can be someone’s first introduction to a natural resource, and has the power to convince them to visit. And once you visit, it's hard not to fall in love.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! 🎊 Here’s a couple photos from an outing not too long ago. Thanks @curry_dan for the shots!
A photograph that brings back fond memories of the mountains. Scrambling over steep moss covered ridges with a friend, while the horizon stares at us, and the summer sun blinds our eyes and heats our skin. Days such as these I revere and look forward to.
