The draw to the open road? That hypnotic stretch of every mile, rendering a constant landscape of change. The good people that ask,, "Hey, where ya headed?" The Wonder that's around EVERY corner. It is my favorite, get out there!
Spires, buttes, and towering monoliths dot the endless expanse of a sandstone paradise. This vast area of BLM land really allows the spirit to wander. Yet another reason to help protect and care for our public lands. #leaveabettertrace
( ) How do you experience more? I was recently asked the same by my friends at @goretexna, and after miles and miles on the road, I just really love to be back in my own backyard. Check out the link in my bio for the full film. Enjoy!

I truly love sharing my lifestyle and craft and it's even more humbling to receive the continued response of 'inspired'. The goal, is just that. If my journeys draw others outdoors and in turn they fall in love and become stewards of these places, what an honor. Well here's a chance to get out there!
Suit up and experience more with @goretexna products. Whether it’s more turns, more trails, more time outside or more memories with friends in beautiful places, it’s time to make it happen. Follow the link in my bio. #experiencemore#GORETEX
Link in bio Dream big while trying to stay centered. Life is chaotic, after all. Sometimes my only option is to escape into my backyard, shooting stills and time-lapse video require me to venture into the trees to recalibrate my mind. The adventure is never-ending, and the more I play outside, the more fulfilled I am within. Check out the full story! (Link in bio)
Perspective that comes one year later: I just spoke to my friend @jercollins_com about this beautiful day that turned tragic, in which the climbing world lost a dear friend, Mark Davis. Where I didn't personally know Mark, I feel connected to his story. Before cleaning his route he put up one last fixed line as a courtesy, so I could continue filming our crew. It was when he came back down that his rappel knot failed. Jeremy and I's discussion was short but powerful. First was remembrance, then introspection. We began discussing where we are now and how this experience has propelled us down the road we're on currently. We both agreed, it feels like a lifetime ago. For me I look back through my work and cannot believe the ground I've covered since this day. It's humbling. It also makes me count my lucky stars that I'm able to lead a life I do. It has allowed me to look forward with a greater perspective. I know I can be stronger, work harder, love deeper. I feel it's important to look at every experience in your life and learn how to move forward to become a better person than the day before. My heart goes out to Mark, his friends and family, and all those with us this fateful day. May you all take from it the will to be strong, to be good, and to love unconditionally. #humble#grateful
The endless search of beauty is a wonderful addiction. One that has pushed me beyond so many limits, be it mental or physical. Thank you earth for the magnificence you hold, I can't wait for what's next.
Part of the three-tier system. Starting with a base camp whether it's home or my camper, the next stage is my @treelineoutdoors rooftop tent. Following is my backcountry set up, or rather whatever I can carry on my back. Each stage allows me to get further and further out there. Therefore depending on timing, I can get deeper and deeper with every stage. Grateful to have partners that help me do what I do. #themountainiscalling
All to often the simple moments are overlooked, no matter the walk of life. That's why for me, it's incredibly important to walk slow, look slower, breathe longer, and appreciate forever. Humility is key.
