Out on the trail

Out on the trail Steve checks his camera for proper exposure. Harsh light filtering down through the trees can make it difficult to get a decent shot. I recommend bracketing your shots, the polar extremes of light and dark make it tough work for a cameras sensor to get a good exposure.

Went on a little weekend trip with the family out to the Keystone/Breckenridge area of Colorado. Stayed in a beautiful condo owned by a family friend. No major backpacking but a couple day hikes that where incredible. One was up to a massive waterfall and a tiny lake, the second was up Mohawk trail just south of Breckenridge to little Mohawk lake with a lot of old abandoned mining equipment along the way.

Starkly Brie

For some reason I’ve been addicted to the stark black and white look. I know it’s probably been f-ed out but I still enjoy it. This is my sister Brie on our Niobrara trip in the Summer of 2012.

Fall trip to Fort Collins with the Family


September 2011 we had a small trip to visit some friends up in Fort Collins, CO. A little road trip with my Sister, her husband and their two year Skyla(who was surprisingly well behaved for a two yearer).

“Brie offers Skyla a bite off a candybar.”

We stayed for two nights out at a campsite just outside of Fort Collins, went on a couple hikes and had an epic bonfire.

“Large pano of the trail we hiked.”
