We spent the extra long weekend in the Tetons. While the weather was generally good it was a bit hot and we didn’t climb much. What we did climb we bailed 1.5 pitches into because of a thunderstorm. Still a fun trip and was able to explore some areas we weren’t familiar with.
Just a quick post to share some images from a recent ski/climbing trip to the desert. Yup, the desert for climbing and skiing. Outside Moab, UT are the La Sal Mountains, with many peaks topping 12,000′ they are even higher than the Wasatch outside our front door. We gambled on the weather and got some fresh snow in the La Sals and enjoyed ourselves exploring a new area. That day after skiing we camped in Moab and enjoyed a desert sunset. Awesome place this UT.
I’m not going to spend time waxing poetic on 2015 and all the enjoyable times, places, and people that I’ve experienced in 2015, even though I had all of those. New Year’s resolutions are typically not my thing, but I will try one in 2016–more time outdoors and less doing everything else.
It is that time of year again. I’ve selected 10 shots I took in 2013 and collected them here. Most of these are some of my best shots of the year but a few are just ones that stuck out a little more than the rest when looking back through my stuff.
I guess I never posted these pictures. Things must have gotten busy and forgot to.
Aaron and I headed to Zion for some climbing but the trip turned out quite differently that we expected. We needed to get more proficient in aiding before attempting our objective. Instead we just enjoyed one of the best National Parks out there for its scenery.
