While riding all alone across the high plains yesterday, me and my horse found this abandoned, starving and thirsty, wild-horse foal in the desert… (he must have fallen asleep when his herd left - by the state he was in, I was guessing 1-2 days ago).
I decided to attempt to deliver him back [...]

Yosemite National Park. Day 2
“I have triple A,” I said.
“Do you have your card?” K asked me.
“It’s in the car,” I said, “But we don’t need it to call, they can look me up on their computer.”
Now we just needed a [...]
Last Sunday I went whale watching for the second time in my life, I used a Groupon deal and invited an old roommate of mine out for a bit of adventure. My excuse to get her to come out this way was it was for her birthday (though her birthday was in November).
We set off [...]
It all started when I got an email from my friend Su:
If you’re free on August 13-14 and can cook a gourmet meal in the wilderness, you might want to apply for a spot in this trip I’m going to with the Sierra Club…
My mind started spinning as she described dishes done on past [...]
If you’ve seen me outdoors, you’ve undoubtedly seen me with a camera in hand. Combining outdoor sports with photography is sometimes hard, but always rewarding.
One thing that makes it hard is handling and securing photography gear. When I first saw an R strap I was pretty excited, they are made by a company called Black [...]

Suffice it to say that I had a great time at the YosTweetup, Luke and Lizzy were fantastic organizers, even in the face of unusual weather (it rained every day even [...]
Select photos from my climbing trip from January 13-17, 2011 to Joshua Tree National Park.
The weather was great and we met old friends and new. Unfortunately I was not feeling that well from day two of the trip which culminated in being quite sick one night (food poisoning) the next day after that I had [...]
As a rock climber, adventure seeker, and/or a general outdoors person you’ve probably seen your share of adventure films. Sometimes they are adrenaline laden shorts or music video visual montages. Oakley Anderson-Moore set out to make a film that’s also a cultural history project about the roots of climbing in the US, interviewing climbing [...]
You may have noticed I tend to have a lot of pictures from my trips and climbs, perhaps you may have even wondered, how did she have time to get a shot like this while climbing?
“Very carefully!” Is my usual answer, however I now have a new one, “I used The Wrist Shot!”
Golden Hour, a [...]
Last weekend I took a 3 dayer trip to Joshua Tree (had a great time, pics to come), the Monday I got back I decided to take an impromptu trip to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. This year was a banner year according to the rangers there. I’ve been once before in 2008 and [...]
