I am so incredibly thankful for last evenings results in Alabama. I hope that we can move forward -gaining momentum like a river- towards peace, respect, and love for one-another and our planet. •CONNECT•CREATE•INSPIRE

Oli getting ready for the winter season. A year ago this little fella needed long skis, but he had to work to make them look as he wanted.He transformed a very old pair of skis into a brand new super hero theme.

Panther Creek.
I’ve been avoiding one of my favorite falls for much of the season for a ridiculous reason: it has become so popular. Yes, when I finally visited the moss and vegetation were trampled, campfire rings dotted the landscape, and trash was abundant. To top it off someone actually started a small wildfire at the base that scorched a few trees. However, the essence of this special place still remains intact and it is a public land open to us all - it is special and it deserves to be appreciated and protected. So after snapping a few images I took out my trash bag and took up my responsibility to protect my public lands. I hope you will consider joining me to protect these precious and shared places.

Last year our Christmas tree hunt was super fun. We payed our permit at the US forest service ranger station and followed the guidelines. When we got into the forest, I thought we found the perfect tree but Pat didn't think so. I'm guessing he was looking for a real challenge. Then I saw the second and then the third perfect tree but still not good enough for the guys. Then, down the hill, in waist deep snow, Patrick found the most cute and fat tree. He rushed down, he made a path for Oliver and then he felt like Chris Griswold, with his eyes looking at the tree and his hand ready with the saw. He then forgot that he had to bring that chubby tree uphill 😆. After that, the kid in him, didn't allow him to go without jumping and getting buried in the snow, something that Oliver had to do as well. I hope this year will be as fun as last one. This time I'll bring hot chocolate to give a warmer ending to the experience ❄⛄🌲

Is there such thing like mud ambassadors? If you live around the Columbia gorge, don't miss the fun of going to Syncline, all the trails are super fun for mountain biking, hiking or muddy puddle fun. If you bring kids, make sure you have another set of clothes, I'm sure they'll take advantage of those puddles. This is also a fury 🐶 friendly place 😂

Indecision
I awoke Saturday with a few ideas and no definitive plan. As I wondered around I noticed a thick layer of fog amassing and decided to rush off to a viewpoint above this frequently foggy valley. Along the way the sky appeared ready to just explode with color. The fog certainly didn’t disappoint, however the sunrise fell a bit flat. Happy #mountainmonday •CONNECT•CREATE•INSPIRE

Against The Flow. “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” Edward R Murrow
In this year, with the many instances of people in power / privilege leveling abuse upon others it is a very powerful time to reflect on moving against the flow.
I’ve never been one to try and fit in and go with the flow. As a result I’ve endured my fill of condescending / demeaning remarks, faced many bullies and many uphill battles to follow what I believe is authentic and right for me.
These experience continued beyond my youth and in many aspects of my life including photography. Art has always been a place where I hoped individuality and creativity would be rewarded and safe. Alas, in this social media age, where many “authentic artists” play a popularity game following each other around taking the same image over and over, destroying our natural resources and deploying under-handed tactics to get a few “likes” it is no wonder I find myself again pushing upstream. This became painfully apparent last week when I refused to share a location of a waterfall and I got trolled for it. It wasn’t a terrible thing, but it made me appreciate those kind people who have supported me and given me the strength to continue to be authentic. Thank you and much love. •CONNECT•CREATE•INSPIRE

Morning "fishing". Olli asked us to wake him up at 6.36a to go fishing. Here you go boy, your wish became true but at 8am. With a cold breeze in 53F water temp. Fish count: zero...as always 😭😆

I was concerned about Olli's first time switching from pedal breaking to hand breaking but it was a very natural and fast transition. He was super stoked with the vibrant colors of this bike (razor dsx) 😺✌👌...next time it will be tested in the forest under the rain (forecasted for the next 15 days oh...and snow on Sunday ❄💦💦😆💦)
