The Most Beautiful State No One Can Visit

I recently took a trip around a fairly large swath of southern Oregon and northern California in the western USA. The landscape was not simply incredibly rich in natural beauty, but stunning in its wide variety. One of my favorite photography subjects are waterfalls and this geographic region is home to some of the most spectacular falls you’ll find anywhere. […]

Port Townsend, Pygmy and The Coolest Kayaks Ever

Last month, my girlfriend Dell and I took a detour and stopped in at Port Townsend, Washington on our way past during a trip that included Oregon, Washington and BC Canada. It was a little out of the way, but I’m really glad we went. There was a specific reason for this stop that had to do with a much more […]

Squamish – The Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada

Gravity, Wind, Scenic Wonders & Fun…

There’s a small town with huge personality and incredible beauty situated smack dab in between Vancouver and Whistler BC Canada. I think most casual tourists making the trip to and from Vancouver and Whistler just sort of stumble onto it unexpectedly with big googly eyes and a slack jaw.
