Getting to this place requires a painful permit process and an extremely long hike, or another tougher permit system and a very long rafting trip, but the effort to get here makes you appreciate it so much more. (And it keeps the crowds at bay)
.
.
.
 5 years ago I visited this spot in Grand Canyon National Park and it inspired me to get more serious about capturing, documenting, and telling stories. It made me realize that I am extremely privileged to get to experience these places and I felt compelled to share these experiences through my photos. At the time, I had not learned much about photography but I was having fun shooting everything I could. Now, 5 years later, I visited again and that feeling of ‘not enough’ is still there. I feel like I haven’t learned anything! This trip and these moments made me realize that I need to use this ‘retirement’ from work, as an opportunity to dedicate myself to storytelling and time freezing. I have so much more to learn.
.
.
.
Places like this also make me realize that I am not really cut out for a desk job anymore. I am not sure I will ever go back. I wish I had realized that before I spent 4 years on an engineering degree and 7 years in Supply Chain Engineering. Whoops. So who wants to try through hiking the entire 700 miles of the GC? Moving away has made me realize that I MUST raft and hike the Big Canyon. HAS TO HAPPEN.
.
.
PS – If you look carefully, you can spot someone’s bivy. I didn’t notice them or their stuff when I shot this, but I am certain they saw us… I wonder what they were thinking?

What's everyone up to this weekend??
.
.
I need to live vicariously through you! We are gonna be working on the Ambulance and walking on the stair stepper! Getting ready for the big trip but sacrificing the singular thing that keeps me sane at work... My weekends in the wilderness!

How'd I get lucky enough to fall in love with someone that enjoys exploring as much as I do?!?!

In 2 months, we will be exploring full time!!!

So this little lady's birthday is on Sunday, which means she's getting old... So I gotta remind her of all the cool stuff we've done together!!

I took this photo back in December 2016, in Barcelona at the Basilica de la Segrada Familia. It was one of our first stops on our ~4000km adventure around the Iberian Peninsula :)

Searching for dispersed camping in new areas can be frustrating but totally worth it when you find a site with a view like this...
.
.

Look closely and you can see Diamond Valley Lake in the top right!

You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care.
About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, 
you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

And you may not find any
you'll want to go down. 
In that case, of course,
you'll head straight out of town. .
- Dr Seuss

So I've been an engineer at Intel for 7 years now and yesterday, on the 7 year anniversary of my first day at Intel, I announced that I am retiring.

@chemhooper and I are embarking on a 6 month road trip in our Ambulance starting at the end of August!

Big changes are coming.
Big changes are coming.
Last one, I promise! It's just such a beautiful spot and I'll explain why! :)
.
.
It's special to me because you can see everything but you're totally alone way up there. You can see the city lights far away to the south, the Superstition Wilderness to the west, Roosevelt Lake and the Sierra Ancha Wilderness to the north, Four Peaks Wilderness to the east, and of course the other 3 peaks. It's pretty special watching the sun creep over the horizon and light up the top of these peaks before everything else.
.
. 
Tough to put it into words really... Maybe I just really love being surrounded by wilderness!

We arrived in this place without a set plan, instead we just answered the questions in front of us as they appeared... Climb in the rain and risk breaking already chossy rock or try a suffer fest hike?  Wake up early for more 'training' (pain) or sleep in? Turn left and explore or turn right and continue? Eat ice cream or burgers?
.

We chose to suffer and earn burgers. 😁😍

@chemhooper and I had a big weekend culminating in an excellent 'training' hike with @hubblethaspacedawg ... We originally planned to do some obscure multipitch but the rain forced us to do some gnarly hiking instead. I think we had more fun hiking than we would have had climbing! (Crazy, I know) .
.
.
Can't beat great company and an amazing wilderness area! Gotta get back out here with a rope ASAP. Thanks for capturing us this weekend @hubblethaspacedawg .
