We made lots of trail friends on this short visit to #mtrainernationalpark. From Marmots to Pikas and Mountain Goats to Chipmunks we were quite entertained during our park stroll earlier this week. A few glimpses of the summit got us pumped for a future attempt at gaining the tippy top of this massive mountain. #adventure
We spent a few days with friends climbing, hiking, trail running, and playing rainy day card games in #squamish 🌧 It was refreshing to be amongst all the laughs, granite walls, and lush forests! #thankful
Last weekend we found ourselves in the heart of the Trinity Alps Wilderness. The approach was spectacular with over 5 waterfalls seen while meandering through towering granite walls in canyons filled with a lush forest canopy, huge old growth, beautiful meadows, and colorful wildflowers. We made our camp in a glacier polished granite cirque surrounded by an incredible mountain landscape! Dreamy! Our goal was to summit Sawtooth Peak the following day. Lingering unstable snow, high temps, and a threatening thunderstorm keep us about 40m from our true summit(I labeled our high point in 5th photo), but our high point for ...
I suppose being sick has one thing going for it...it works as a reminder to slow down, be grateful, and remember the good times. Here’s a few pics from a trip to the east side last weekend. I had the opportunity to catch up with a couple Alaska friends, meet a couple new folks, beat feet in the high desert, find some good brews, and paddle part of the deschutes. Full sun fun!

Southern Oregon sure is pretty this time of year! A run amongst the wildflowers to contemplate life was an excellent choice earlier this week! #runwow#wildflowers
Ko Samui is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus, Thailand. The island was full of palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves, mountainous rainforests, waterfalls, and large sandbars. Fruit and cuisine in general was delicious. Another moto trip, fresh sunburns, a handful of brilliant sunsets, a few rice beers, and we kicked back for a relaxing last few days in this marvelous country. #lostinthailand#amazingthailand
One can find Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand. It’s home to some very beautiful decomposing granite, tropical coral reefs, a vast array of sea life, and some very steep roads! We explored this little island via moto, snorkeling in its near by waters, by foot, and via some of its popular bouldering routes. #lostinthailand#amazingthailand
Another beaut in the Andaman Sea is Ko Phi Phi! You won’t find any motor cars here! Only walkable cobble stone and white sand beaches. This is definitely a place to kick back and relax or kayak and do a little deep water soloing (we were limited by low tied and thus too much of a barnacle start 🐚). We grabbed a pirate ship and jumped from its roof, kayaked into a few isolated lagoons and islands, swam to monkey beach 🐒, snorkeled over a variety of brightly colored fish 🐠, ate scrumptious food, and danced the day/night away to ...
Railay and Tonsai yielded days on end of pure bliss. There were lots of other travelers and the heat was pretty intense, but none the less this place is truly a gem. #lostinthailand#thailand

The quintessential long-tail boat ride to Railay did not disappoint! And to top it off as soon as we set foot at our destination we ran into @mpapson and @plainolebagel in good ole organic fashion! Let the good times roll! #lostinthailand#southeastasia
