Arctic conditions on the bay this morning with @nmercuri.

Thankful for views and sunsets like these. Tahoe is beautiful.

Getting rad in the mountains.

Spent some time shooting product in store @tnf_jacksonsquare today. One of two places in the US that currently has Japan-only TNF product from Goldwin. Don't sleep.

For the birds.

Fun day exploring rust today with @first_exposures at @sfmoma today.

If you're in SF, check our new store at 701 Sansome. The first of its kind for The North Face in the US, this space celebrates our urban roots and expedition heritage, each of which have played equally important roles as formidable proving grounds for our products.
I've shot a bunch of photos for our Instagram, some of which are already up. Check us out: @tnf_jacksonsquare

The last three days have left me feeling inspired and extremely grateful. Not only was this my first visit to Yosemite, but spending three days in the valley with a dozen North Face pro athletes along with another thirty employees was an unforgettable experience.
I took this photo of Half Dome along a 14.5 mile hike around the panoramic loop, and then later got to hear Jim Zellers tell the story of when he became the first (and maybe only person) to snowboard down the back side of the dome.

I've always hated running. It sucks. It's just never made any sense to me how running along sidewalks through neighborhoods is fun or relaxing.
Trail running, on the other hand, does not suck. Exploring trails like this one, just 5 minutes from our doorstep, is amazing.
After not running for probably two years, I've done 15 miles this week so far, and it feels really good.

Never tire of this backyard view. Mount Tamalpais, some fog, and an ugly sunset.
