Man, this year has just flown by! What an absolutely incredible fall I had. It came with a ton of personal growth on the photography side and it feels pretty incredible to see things click and start tracking in the direction I’ve always desired and dreamed of.
I had some big adventures this fall and early winter - a week traversing the Colorado Rockies shooting fall color and checking a major bucket list item off of not only one but TWO concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater (what a magical venue), a few days backpacking the core Enchantments during peak Larch season (that has to be in some of my favorite experiences ever - standalone blog post forthcoming), and of course all the general exploring of the PNW with friends old and new and even getting to show my parents Mt. Rainier for their first time with what became possibly one of the most epic sunsets of my life! I also had a major trade up from a Toyota Prius to a Toyota Tacoma. The addition of the height and the 4x4 has already dramatically improved my trailhead accessibility & winter adventures. This was the first year I didn’t go home for Thanksgiving so I spent the break building out the bed of the truck with a sleep/storage platform for camping out of it and promptly took it down to Trillium Lake at Mt. Hood and spent an overnight in 26 degrees to test it out - I couldn’t be happier with the results! I still need to build the pull out drawer on the left and install the mid-shelf on the right for ski storage. The rails in the open space allow me to drop another piece of plywood in to turn it into space for 2 to sleep or remove and have the ability to put my feet down and sit up when I’m flying solo.
Updated galleries include Coastal, Forests & Mountains, Lakes Rivers & Waterfalls, Man & Nature, and Night Sky. I’m looking forward to my winter adventures - hoping to get out and photo a slight bit more than I did last year to photo but if I end up just skiing the whole time like I did last year, I won’t have a care in the world. Hope you have happy holidays!
