Thirteen miles + 1,900 feet of elevation gain = this scenic vista. There were over 100 cars at the trailhead, eleven miles from the nearest pavement. Next time I’ll ride the KLR for faster access and easier parking.
Jen and I just returned from a motorcycle-camping trip to the Olympic Coast with our friend Scott. With only a two-mile approach, this small Wilderness beach is easy to access. And it’s often less crowded than First and Third Beaches.
Fly into St. George, Utah. Then drive up to Kolob Canyons to hike Middle Fork Taylor Creek. Bike around Gooseberry Mesa. Dive into Middle Echo Canyon. Kind of like mixing work and play. Take a look at our Zion trip photos.
Summer. It’s not just the season for rock climbing and thunderstorms. Summer means weddings. Lots of weddings.
Last month, Jen’s cousin Kitty Rasmussen married Jeff Craig. Watch the Craig-McIntyre-Rasmussen reunion slideshow (the trimaran pictured at the end was hand-built by Jen’s uncle, Dennis Rasmussen, in nine months!)
This week, I visit Hamilton, MT for a one-day shoot of the wedding of Charla Grenz and Ben Solheim.
I return to the office Monday, August 18.
