It’s that time of year where I work six days on one day off, so I’m not sure there will be much of this anytime soon. Luckily work means running the big drops of cataract canyon three times per week.
I got a new camera! For the last year I could only take pictures using the self timer function on my camera. Maybe I’ll be more inspired to take pictures again. Of course now I have to upgrade my Lightroom to the new subscription version. 👎
This lake is probably still buried under feet of snow, but it’s starting to melt and all the rivers are starting to swell. Summer is just around the corner, and I am pretty excited.
It is so nice to see some water in this desert again! Also if you want to wiggle into deep dark holes next week, slide right into those DMs
I was peeing when I saw this. That’s all I really want to say.
No shot is ever a bad shot in blacktail. Good to be back in the ditch!
It’s starting to feel like canyon weather in Utah! There are a few canyons that have been on my to-do list for too long, time to start making some plans.
Between the solitude, the harsh weather, the high elevation, and occasionally downright dangerous conditions, I’ve never finished a backpacking trip more demanding than what I did in the Huayhuash range. The occasional breaks in the rain allowed for some of the most spectacular scenes I’ve ever witnessed.
The weather forecast says sunny skies for the next week! Anyone else itching to get back to warmer temps and longer days to play in the mountains?? 📸 @tedhesser
Wild and Scenic, as of today.
Desolation canyon has always been wild and scenic but today the president signed the law that officially gives it that designation and protection.
I took this picture on my first river trip ever. It was a guide training trip through Deso five years ago. I had no clue how much time and attention I’d dedicate to rivers at the time. I’ve spent more time studying hydrology, geology, history, and plenty of other subjects to better understand these places than I did studying for my degree in finance.
It’s been a wet winter in the West! Soon all this snow and ice will melt and funnel into the canyons and rivers of the Southwest for the biggest rapids in years!!
