Just spent an incredible three days backpacking and exploring ancient ruins in Grand Gulch with my wife and friends, (part two of my farewell-to-Utah tour before @oneworldoneyear). One more trip down south next weekend if my legs can take it, (and wife allows it). Gonna miss this place. #backpacking #exploring #Utah #GrandGulch #hiking #ruins #anasazi #timemachine

My medicine. Spent three and a half days walking 50 miles across Zion National Park with my brother and two friends making up for a trip that was cancelled last year. Southern Utah, my love affair, makes everything better (except my blistered feet). #Zion #ZionTraverse #Utah #backpacking

A favorite that didn’t quite make the cut of photos I shot of the soup bowl of #pollution that is #UtahValley as seen from the top if #Sundance. This one was shot a bit wide but you can just make out the thick #smog we’re all breathing down here in the valley. Hire me Sundance! I have to escape this mess and work in the #mountains. #onassignment #skiing #snowboarding #Utah

And that about does it for the season. Total sludge-fest in #CornerCanyon today that had us quite literally stuck in the mud and carrying our bikes, (twice their normal weight after gathering so much muck), for half the time. I’ll admit defeat, clean up and await the snow. :(

Two thumbs down from my brother and I as we stood admiring the view in Kolob Canyon at the Lee’s Pass trailhead. Last Wednesday we were supposed to be here with two friends to start the Zion traverse but thanks to Mike Lee and his posse of dip-shits we were locked out. Thanks to the state gov for funding the parks on Friday and getting them open for the heartbroken visitors, some who have saved and planned for months, even years, to visit “our” beautiful country. My heart goes out to those dirtbags still locked out of their own zion. #Utah #FuckYouMikeLee #backpacking #Zion
