Telluride Bluegrass Festival
I just returned from a week back on Colorado, 4 glorious days of great weather, great people, and excellent music followed by a quick side trip to Sedona, AZ. One of these days I'll get around to sifting through and editing the hundreds of photos from this trip!
San Diego Rock n' Roll Marathon
I can't believe I actually did it. Of all my adventures, this was the most difficult 26.2 miles I have ever travelled. What an experience, though, and to top it off I raised $3000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! Check out my online training journal. Maybe now I can have a life again :-).
Devil's Postpile Overnight Snowshoe
We spent 2 nights exploring the area near Devil's Postpile National Monument, a rare sight in the wintertime. The weekend was bittersweet, and incredible adventure shadowed by the death of my best friend's dad and a nasty cold at the end.

Lake Tahoe/Eastern Sierras
I spent a week on a personal retreat exploring the areas around Lake Tahoe (an area I am absolutely in love with) and travelling south through the Eastern Sierras. Highlights of this trip are too many to list all, but include meeting George Lepp and Ralph Clevenger at Mono Lake and waking up to a foot of snow after hiking 7 miles into the backcountry. Many images of this trip will be featured in my up and coming 2007 Calendar.

Lake Tahoe - WOW
I had the pure pleasure of staying a few short days in North Lake Tahoe for a wedding. I am in love with this area and MUST return ASAP! Unfortunately there was little time for adventure, but we did enjoy a 9 mile hike on the west shore!
I just returned from a short but amazing first visit to the areas surrounding Mt. Shasta. The trip highlight featured a hike to the lower, middle, and upper falls of the McCloud River. Stay tuned for photos...
