The last day of summer or the first day of fall? It's rained five inches in the last few days, putting out most of the fires in the Gorge. The storm broke last night just in time for one of the first smoke free sunsets I've seen in months.

In three weeks, the #Vanlife book that I've been working on for the last year comes out! @philliptannand whipped up some limited edition bumper stickers for the release. Best part is that they are free with a preorder of the book. Follow the link in my profile to preorder your copy or upload your sales receipt (if you've already ordered it!) to get your stickers. I'm super happy with how the book turned out and can't wait for people to start checking them out ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Watching the Eagle Creek Fire burn afternoon yesterday from @moviemountain . It's been a crazy week of fires, smoke, and evacuations. We almost had to packed up the #poolscum set! The fire on the Washington side is now almost contained but the Oregon fire is still raging at some 40,000 acres. it looks like rain is on the way to help out on the Oregon side but it's going to be weeks until it's fully extinguished by fall rain๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ฆ #raindance #thankyoufirefighters

Yesterday afternoon we took a Zodiac out in the Columbia to see the damage caused by the Eagle Creek fire. The smoke was so thick that the sun was barely visible. The damage was less than I feared after seeing the hillsides glow with flames a few nights before. Having grown up in the Gorge, I've been accustom to the sounds of I-84, the silence the last few days has been hauntingly eerie. The wind was dead calm and the only noises were from the occasional bird overhead and distant whir of a fire fighters chainsaws. The second photo is a shot of Multnomah Falls, thankfully the lodge was saved. The Archer Mountain fir looked very small compared to the destruction on the Oregon side. The next week or so looks relatively calm which would be ideal for firefighters. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

A group of 30 of us stood on the bluffs of North Bonneville watching the fire jump ridge to ridge down the Oregon side of the Gorgeas the east wind raged. Over head, two hewy helicopters made laps, scooping up buckets of water from the Columbia and dropping them on the fires. "It looks like a scene from a movie..." people kept saying. The destruction is unfathomable. Hours after I shot these clips the fire jumped the Columbia and started burning on a place the @moviemountain crew and I hike a bunch some 4 miles from the studio and tree houses. My dads house was evacuated and we started packing up hard drives and camera equipment. Thankfully the wind switched and the fire started burning in the opposite direction. It's been a crazy 48 hours and thanks to everyone that's been sending messages and positive vibes our way. Thanks to everyone fighting fires, cleaning up flooding, and other natural disasters this year, with climate change, radical natural events will only become more common ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

Watching the Gorge burn yesterday. Last night it jumped the river and is 4 miles from @moviemountain ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜ช

A look at what we have been working on for the last 5 months at @moviemountain. This is how one shot from our first project, POOL SCUM, comes together. This shot is 50 frames, a little over 2 seconds and is composed of 4 passes; an animation pass (the puppet is moved frame by frame), a green screen pass (so that we can remove the arm that holds the puppet and replace the sky), a lens flair pass, and a clean plate (so that when we remove the puppets arm we have what's behind it). The camera motion is mapped out on our motion control machine, a giant computer controlled robot arm, that repeats the same motion perfectly. These 4 takes are then comped together on #aftereffects and this is the final result. For more follow @moviemountain #stopmotion #nerdalert

Tucker showing Bill, our partially blind friend, the corona around the total eclipse last week. Three years ago, Tucker and I were in over our heads working on the tree houses and needed help. Tucker suggested we fly in his childhood friend and carpenter, Bill, out from Maine. The plan was for Bill to come out for a few weeks, but he ended up staying until the project was finished. Shortly after, Bill was in a bad accident and suffered a severe brain injury. He spent 8 weeks in a coma and when he finally regained consciousness, he was partially blind. He's had a long path to recovery. Two years after the accident, Bill came out for the eclipse. I've taken hundreds of thousands of photos over the years, and this is without a doubt one of my favorites. You're a bad ass @mccheww ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Feel the Rhythm, feel the Rhyme, come on in its roll start time!!!! Getting an overloaded 40 year old Volvo going on a dusty August day after camping out for the eclipse. #success #needsanewstarter

Showing my 91 year old grandmother, Trudy, around the tree houses. She made it to the tallest tree house, up three flights of stairs and a 30 foot suspension bridge. She's had an amazing life, growing up in the Jungles of Panama, studying the Amish and teaching anthropology at the University of Michigan, and protesting various wars (she was arrested in 2013 protesting the war in Iraq). I hope when I'm her age, I'm running around protesting, seeing the eclipse and climbing up tree houses.

We camped out in the desert for a few days and waited for the sky to turn black. The total eclipse was hands down the craziest thing I've ever seen. #NASA #totaleclipseoftheheart #science #bledsoe
