Go get it
Tom catching Bill on film, last September. We’re entering the golden period of the year, when days still stretch long enough for leisure and contemplation but the light in low and close enough to winter to provide good contrast. Food for both photography and recollection. I had cause to search through the autumnal blog archives…
TR contest update
First two entries in the contest are in, and they’ve already set the bar high. Dan Ransom did some hiking, and took some superlative photos, in the Uintas. (Only major range in the lower 48 which runs W-E.) Josh Spice, of whose blog I was previously unaware, (finally) did a great trip in the western…
The Future of Youtube
Not Youtube generally, but the corner of it in which I am most interested: first-person-made outdoor adventure videos. They’ve revolutionized the outdoor industry. Before, video of any quality at all required big gear, and this big teams and big money. Now the best adventure video is increasingly on the leading edge of credibility (see the…
As I noted last weekend, I’m just not psyched to suffer yet. I had every intention of skipping the 25 dollar boat ride and walking the 8 miles of trail to Waterton town yesterday, but a measly 23 miles was enough walking to make me grateful to get off my feet. Instead, I savored the…
Pre-park artifact in Glacier NP. I was all set to go down the South Fork of the Flathead this (for me 3-day) weekend. Hiking, boating, fly fishing, and in sharp contrast to last year, warm weather. Work got done last week, we bought a second car Thursday, and Friday afternoon I ran around, bought food,…
The 2011 Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic is done. I teamed up on route with fellow rookie Paige Brady, and in spite of a storm Monday night that sent us back to wait overnight under a spruce tree for better weather, we finished in second overall at 3 days, 12 hours, and 20 minutes. The real…
After a fairly uneventful weekend (skiing, packrafting, my friend’s (Greek!) wedding in Whitefish, prep for the classic, even some mountain biking), here’s what I find today: The MMT boys continue to deliver: Adam didn’t die. For which I am glad (feeds well into last weeks “don’t fuck with rivers” theme):
Cuben spray deck!
All kinds of awesome. Well done gents.
10 months of skiing
First day of skiing this season was late October. As of today, we’re still going strong. [vimeo 25874444] Jewel has good corn early, and is remarkably un-suncupped. The silt plume in Flathead Lake is pretty impressive. Black Lake is still frozen almost totally solid, and the parking lot at Camp Misery is under a good 6…
Revisiting the shadow
Lake McDonald. Apologies for the dramatic title; and while shadows (for once present, as this weekend is not overcast and rainy) played a prominent role in this latest trip, I am primarily speaking about that concept of the shadow found in one of my favorite poems. It took far too long, and far too much…
