About these galleries...
These are the chronicles of the most rejuvenating, freeing, mind clearing experiences I've ever had. They have elevated my appreciation and thirst for the world we live in. They have challenged and pushed me in ways I never thought possible. They are cherished memories. For now, the pictures tell the story. I am working to write the stories behind the photos. Slow process. Rewarding process.
[Notice Regarding Sensitive Areas/Plants]:
*Most* of the photos here are in chronological order. However, there are many sites considered sacred in some places I travel off trail to see, plants endangered, etc. Those galleries are edited out of respect for these things, and I feel some places are better left secret. Likewise, the trip reports/adventure journals are also edited/rearranged at times.
I DO NOT give out coordinates for places, mostly because I myself do not have them. I can point you in the direction, but a topo map, and a bit of research, is an explorer's best friend. Besides, the search is all part of the adventure...]
