Remote Travel

A lone SUV travels the single lane dirt road on its way back from Elephant Hill, inside The Needles part of Canyonlands National Park. I have only been able to spend a day in this part of the park, but I look forward to the future when I am able to do some multi-day backpacking adventures…

Autumn Ride

Autumn is here and it’s my favorite time of the year. In Colorado, Autumn brings beautiful color changes on the trees and rich blue skies above. The remote Aspen forests are perhaps the crown jewel of the season, but beautiful golden hues can be found all over the state. I took this picture while riding on…

A Thousand Feet Down

The original Colorado gold rush started in 1859, but the Cripple Creek area boomed in 1891 at which time the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine was started. This mine was worked until 1961 when the mine was closed and turned into a tourist attraction. This tour isn’t for the claustrophobic. You arrive 1000′ into the depths…

Bosnian Tracks

I took this picture in the Bosnia-Herzegovina countryside just outside of the small city of Čapljina. I’m not sure if trains still run on this old bridge, but the other bridge on the right side of the image is used by locals as a diving board. It is an exhilarating 20’+ plunge into the river below. That…

Alaskan Train

The drive down Seward Hwy, east of Anchorage, Alaska, is one of the most scenic roadways in the world. The road hugs the ocean’s inlet as the mountains rise out of the water on both sides. It shares a narrow strip of flat land with the railway tracks and lends itself to views like this one.

Worn Path of Pompeii

This is a stone street in the ancient and historical city of Pompeii. The street was grooved by the wheels of a civilization that called this place home for over 700 years. The city was buried under 20 feet of ash and pumice by the Volcano Vesuvius in 79AD. Forgotten by the world, it was rediscovered sixteen centuries later….

Bridging the Clouds

Does this bridge look familiar? Well, check your coin collection. If you’ve got one of the West Virgina U.S quarters then flip it over to the back and you will see the New River Gorge Bridge. When the bridge was opened in 1977, it was not only the world’s longest steel single-span arch bridge, but it…
