Welcome to the Adventure Photography Blog!
 

Here you will find some of the adventure stories behind the photographs and (of course) more photos.  It has been a lot of fun creating this because you can see the evolution and melding of both adventuring and photography.  In 2003, taking a point-and-shoot camera with me was an option.  Today I would feel lost without my gear.  You also start to see composition, technique, and even lighting evolve and mature over the years.  Enjoy and please leave a comment if you see something interesting.
 

(Note: Please pardon the approximate 5 year gap.  The blog is one of the more difficult things to generate... partially because there is just so much content but also because I am attempting to recall the details of trips that I took in 2012 and at the same time also adding new and exciting entries.  I promise to fill that gap soon. Thank you.) 
 

Camping at the Black River

September 02, 2021  •  1 Comment
Hello Readers! It has been a little while since I've posted a blog and so thought I would add some new content and a new adventure story. Thank you for being patient. Just got back from a 3-day camping and hiking trip up to my favorite place in Arizona... the White Mountains. My Brother and I decided to head up to a favorite primitive campsite nea...

Camping at Promontory Butte and Reynolds Creek

October 19, 2020  •  1 Comment
In August 2020, my Brother and I planned a camping trip up to Promontory Butte near the highest elevation along the Mogollon Rim just north of Christopher Creek Arizona. There's a bit of a cool backstory here. Earlier in the week, I was on the phone with my Brother and at the computer at the same time. We were planning on where to go when we thoug...

Isolation in the White Mountains

June 29, 2020  •  1 Comment
You probably know this by now, but I tend to visit the White Mountains of eastern Arizona at least twice a year. There is something special about the stretch of Route 191 between Alpine and Hannagan Meadow and also the Three Forks Road from Big Lake to Alpine. In my opinion, it is one of the best kept secrets in the state. People who flock to the m...

Wildflowers in the Superstition Mountains

March 28, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
This is going to be a relatively short blog entry since it was a really quick road trip up the Apache Trail and into the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix. I don't think I quite hit the peak of wildflower season, but boy did I get a few good shots. Plus, I was itching to get out of COVID-19 Lockdown and out in to nature! These were taken on M...

Isabela Puerto Rico

February 29, 2020  •  1 Comment
In late February of 2020, I had a "business trip" out to the island of Puerto Rico. Wow! Little did I know it would turn in to the best business trip ever, and even provide an opportunity for an adventure and some calendar-worthy photos! I flew out on the red eye and arrived in San Juan at around 10:30AM on a Monday morning, then drove to the nort...

Winter in Southern Arizona

January 01, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
Almost every year, I get a nice long break from work around the Christmas and New Year holidays. I took advantage of the time off to check out a part of Arizona that I had never explored much. Most people have the impression that Arizona is nothing but a hot dry desert, and also that the closer you get to the southern border, the hotter and drier i...

Fall Color in Flagstaff Arizona

October 19, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
So on October 19th, I planned a trip up to Flagstaff with my Mom and Dad to check out some fall colors. Mom wasn't feeling so hot, so it ended up being just Dad and I. I had a wonderful breakfast at their place and then headed up the road for a couple of hours. Our first destination was Lockett Meadow, but that ended up being a bust... turns out Lo...

White Mountains of Arizona

June 24, 2019  •  1 Comment
So I flipped on up to the cool mountains and high elevations of Alpine Arizona this past weekend and did a bit of hiking and picture taking. I spent two days along AZ-191 between Alpine and Hannagan Meadow. It is such a gorgeous place and I've been up there at least ten times now. I highly recommend it. I got to test out a hiking staff as well as t...

Hunting for Wildflowers

March 20, 2019  •  1 Comment
The Phoenix area had quite an unusual amount of rainfall in January, February, and March of 2019, and so we were gearing up for one of the best wildflower blooms in decades. The local news was even calling it the Super Bloom! I didn't want to miss it, so I took a half day of vacation on a Wednesday in late March and wandered off into the mountains...

Grand Teton National Park

October 11, 2018  •  4 Comments
You will have to pardon the length of this blog, but it is worth the read, as this trip up to Grand Teton National Park was one of my best trips yet!! I was not really anticipating an outstanding trip, but to my surprise, I got one. Actually, I think the weather had a lot to do with it... the forecast was for rain, snow, and cold temperatures for m...

Not All Who Wander are Lost (Part 2)

July 29, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
So I just had to create a part 2 to the "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" blog. The reason being, this camping trip was truly EPIC in that it embraces adventure, wandering, and getting lost in nature! Perhaps it was because I checked out Google Earth in the days prior and picked out the spot. Perhaps it was the fact that the spot was close to the convf...

Not All Who Wander are Lost (Part 1)

July 11, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
For the first half of 2018, I have not gone on any major excursions (what is wrong with me??!!), but that's not to say I haven't gotten away and enjoyed a hike or a beautiful scene. Here are a handful of little road trips that collectively are worth posting... In March, I headed north of Phoenix to a place called the Agua Fria National Monument an...

Southeast Utah in Winter

December 23, 2017  •  1 Comment
Okay, this was an awesome trip!! On the week before Christmas in 2017, I made spontaneous plans to head up to Northeast Arizona and Southeast Utah for what would have been 4 nights. Yeah, I caught some kind of sinus infection, and yeah, I got snowed-in in Moab (ended up staying 5 nights), but I've got to tell you, it was totally worth it! So I fli...
