Water falls are my kryptonite, and an easy source of distraction for me. I can easily get lost in them. Whether it's following its flow from source to destination, or studying the water as it ricochets against the rocks, the falls are guaranteed to captivate and provide inspiration for a photograph. But equally as special…Read more Ohh, Shiny!
On the recommendation of a film school buddy who's been Canadian all his life, we doubled back east of Calgary to tour the Red Deer River Valley, hitting many of the Badlands hot-spots before immersing ourselves in Drumheller dino-madness. We drove for nearly two hours along prairie roads, wondering when the landscape would eventually change…Read more Way Back in the Day
We missed it by one day. The Battle of Little Bighorn lasted for two days, from June 25 to June 26, 1876, but the reenactment only lasted for one day, June 25, 2017.

Utah's red dust had infiltrated everything, leaving a veiled matte finish on every surface: inside the Airstream, inside the truck, inside our undies, and inside our lungs. Leah and I were more…Read more Drop-Dead Gorge(ous)
What a difference a day makes. Leaving Zion behind for Bryce Canyon gave us cooler temperatures, cooler tempers, and cooler views--now that we left the maddening crowd behind and were no longer limited by what we could see (Keeping an Eye on Zion). After driving two hours through riveting scenery along 89 North, we arrived…Read more Hoodoo You Trust?
