Colorado Backcountry Skiing Season Recap

Colorado Backcountry Skiing Season Recap
This past winter was my (Marc) first full time winter season in Colorado. Brenda, having grown up near Denver, has seen many winters here but this was my first! Last season we were in Colorado most of the time and definitely got some amazing powder days, but I was excited to see the full transition from fall to winter and watch the snow accumulate in the Mountains! Th[...]

Yosemite Trip Report – Climbing the Salathe Wall

Yosemite Trip Report - Climbing the Salathe Wall
For those of you who regularly read our blog you know it is often Brenda doing the writing. Today we switch things up a bit and share a trip report of climbing on the Salathe Wall in Yosemite written by Marc. About every year for the past several years I've tried to get up El Cap. Some years have been more successful than others. This past years attempt was on the [...]

Lost Coast and Redwoods National Park | Northern California Adventure

Lost Coast and Redwoods National Park | Northern California Adventure
One of the highlights of our summer was our road trip in northern California. We had a few amazing northern California weddings to shoot so we decided to take it on the road and enjoy a few places we had been wanting to explore. It also happened that we had sold our house in California in anticipation of our move to Colorado. It was a perfect time to move into our tru[...]

love adventurously camping trip | life update
It's been a whirlwind of a year, where does the time go and how is it almost November? If you've been following along with us on the blog or social media you may have noticed that there's been a lot going on in our world. We've been in the process of moving for quite a while now and have done a lot of traveling back and forth between Colorado and California to make th[...]

Southwest Road Trip Par 4 – Great Sand Dunes National Park

Southwest Road Trip Par 4 - Great Sand Dunes National Park
We're big fans of sand dunes so it should not come as a shock that Great Sand Dunes National Park would be on our list. I had been there before as a kid back when I lived in Colorado, back when I didn't know what it was like to be able to go to the beach for the weekend. My memory, like most of my childhood memories is vague yet includes a distinct feeling of exciteme[...]

Southwest Road Trip Part 3 – Tent Rocks, Bandelier, and Santa Fe

Southwest Road Trip Part 3 - Tent Rocks, Bandelier, and Santa Fe
We got a little behind on blogging our adventures. I guess that's what happens  when wedding season kicks off and we're working in two states! As we're currently on a road trip in Northern California and getting excited to share pictures from the Pacific Coast, I figured we had better finish telling you about the rest of our Southwest road trip. We started in Sedona a[...]

Southwest Road Trip Part 2 – Chaco Canyon New Mexico

Southwest Road Trip Part 2 - Chaco Canyon New Mexico
Last week we shared a little about our adventures in Sedona, the next stop on our road trip was Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. The official name is Chaco Culture National Historic Park. This place is no joke, even getting there you wonder if you took a wrong turn back in time. The dirt roads make the going slow but the views are phenomenal and the destination well worth it[...]

Southwest Road Trip Part 1: Sedona Adventure Photography
My grandpa did us the favor of turning 90 this year giving us an excuse to have a mini family reunion in Sedona, AZ. This determined the route we would take on our latest trek from California to Colorado as we pretend that living in two places at once is no big deal. It was an absolute blast to see my dad with both of his sisters and their parents. We spent a few days[...]

Snow Play | Sequoia Backcountry Skiing

Snow Play | Sequoia Backcountry Skiing
Some days you get two feet of fresh powder, like this recent post from a Sequoia snow day. Other days the powder isn't quite so fresh or deep... and you wake up early anyway! However, if the California sun is shining and you're in a t-shirt after skiing in Colorado in cold temps, complaining is pretty hard to do. Pretty hard, but not impossible! After all, we did get [...]

Backcountry Skiing Colorado – Nederland and Rocky Mountain National Park

Backcountry Skiing Colorado - Nederland and Rocky Mountain National Park
Today I'm posting some pictures from backcountry skiing Colorado, later I'll post some from California. Since our hearts are in both places I'll refrain from too much comparison. Let's just say that in Colorado we had fresh, light, deep powder but negative temperatures while in California we were in t-shirts. Regardless there's something to be said for getting outside[...]
