tbt when I crawled over a bunch of logs to get a photo of a waterfall 🌊... then accidentally reformatted my SD card a few days later. 😑

The unsinkable Molly Brown...just in case you encounter an iceberg in the middle of Colorado😉

I have been blessed to have these 3 kiddos in my life. My wife @thekestels captured this on her IPhone. #fathersday #blessed #familytime

Now when someone uses the expression "I feel like I'm on top of a mountain", I can say I know what that feels like. Made it to the summit of Mt. Quandary, 14,265 ft! .

Yesterday and today I explored what became one of my favorite alpine lake destinations yet. Only accessible by foot, 9.8 miles from the nearest trailhead, with 2,700 feet of elevation gain. I busted my ass about as hard as I ever have. This place is remote AF. Yet I still was surprised to see zero evidence of any other humans present in the vicinity of these lakes in June. Just a family of Moose in the valley. The audio is a field recording of birds singing at dusk at the opposite side of the lake from my camp, with a distant but powerful roar in the background from a waterfall on the other side of the basin.

I wish everyone could spend at least a week in my shoes (boots) and see exactly what I do everyday.. #mountains #colorado #breckenridge #horse #horsebackriding #keepitwild #wilderness #whiterivernationalforest #trail #wildernessculture

After having to change our plans twice because of forest closures, we packed up and just drove. No agenda, no phone service for days, just quality time together enjoying the mountains. We camped, hiked, saw sooo many things, and really need a shower!! Best vacation we’ve ever had! #whiterivernationalforest #lincolngulch #maroonbells #independencepass #royalgorgebridge #explorecolorado

This morning a friend and I decided to go for a 4.8 mile hike to Whitney Lake. Luckily we made it out before the rain really picked up.

Only 40 minutes from where I stay is the only cantilevered arch bridge in the state! It’s definitely a high drop from it!
