Good friend @jrmarshymarsh testing the waters during the filming of #StillWildFilm. We're doing a private screening here in the @treelineoutdoors shop this weekend. Following, we'll share with all of you. Huge thanks to everyone involved. Can't wait to share a few moments that I can easily say shaped all the lives of those involved. #themountainiscalling #wearestillwild

There was a light roar coming from the distant waves crashing on the beach. Followed by the occasional elephant seal bark and a seagull call. These memories always make me miss the ocean. Friend and naturalist @charles_post climbing back up from taking a closer look. Circa 2015 #leaveabettertrace

It's the discovery in exploration that keeps me addicted. No matter how popular, or not, if it's new it's magic. #wearestillwild

My mind often drifts to life on the road. It continues to shape the person I hope to become. Never pass up on a dream, ever. #wearestillwild

Alright, I guess I'll camp here. Hope everyone is having a great weekend out there!

It's impossible to grasp the gift of life until it's threatened. It's as if every moment zips along unscathed by the possibility that in an instant the lights can go out. Then one day reality strikes and the end is no longer just an idea. Looking through this lens isn't pleasant, but it can teach us to carry on no matter how many days we may have left, in a much more loving and meaningful way. #leaveabettertrace

If anyone else is familiar with exploring Crater Lake in the winter, you know that the trail takes you along the rim. At any given point you can hike towards the lip of the crater, but not before climbing your way through various groupings of trees. However, when you finally reach a view, no matter where it is, it's breath taking!

Spread the love. Enjoy one another, seek happiness, and live simply. Cheers from the Canadian Rockies.

Just before that sun warms up a chilled sleep. #convergencefilm

The scene is set. The clouds, the snow, the light, everything is perfect. However! The next step is the most important to me... just sit and take it all in. Don't move, don't keep trying to capture it. Think really hard about what you're looking at. Get lost out there. Life is precious and very short don't let it blow by you.

South Patagonia, a world of extreme weather, massive glaciers, giant peaks, and wide open spaces. A place I'd love to call home.

Anyone else feeling those Pacific Northwest blues? In need of a getaway.

It's been quite the incredible journey so far and it's about to get even better. That's what happens when you add a cute little baby into the mix, right? Yep, @ericabest_ and I are expecting. Can't wait to share life on the road with my soon to be kiddo.

Majestic, is the first word that comes to my mind when watching these amazing creatures. What about for you?

A light dusting and only everywhere to go. Where first?! I'm so excited for the weekend.

The whispy views of the backyard. This is the only thing that can keep a nomad sane, an epic home. Grateful. #heaven

Turn on the glorious tunes of @gregoryalanisakov, sit back, and go. "I’m putting on miles, putting on miles like it’s going out of style, freeway searching for you..." So good.

No matter how cold the desert can get, the sunrises are always on fire. Hope everyone is doing well out there.

It's never enough to just share the image along with my story of the experience I had capturing it. The emotions I feel while in places and during times like these are overwhelming. For me that is why I choose to share the beauty of this world. It's with a hope that others may too get out, experience, fall in love, and most importantly discover the deep desire to protect it. #wearestillwild
