That’s right, folks, I’ve published my first photo book, and the first book from my grand trip cross country. Going into my trip, I wanted to walk away from it a better and stronger person than before, but I also wanted to have something tangible to share with all of you. I saw some incredible things, had my breath stolen by some dramatic landscapes, and it would be a shame not to sure these wonders. We are in a special place in time where our wilderness are at a crossroads. It’s important to document this special time, because our children and grand children may not have the opportunity.
In short, I took this trip for those who can’t. For my friends and family who passed away far too young, it was imperative that I experience these places in hopes it would some how benefit them. I wanted to experience these places and capture as best as I could, photos and videos to share with my family members who are not healthy enough to take on the brute force of the wilderness. All these factors played into my motivation for this project.
Bryce Canyon National Park was by far my favorite park on this trip. I loved it so much, I hiked Rim-to-Rim. The most damning hike I have ever taken on, the Hoodoos were formidable and only the most conditioned athletes and experienced hikers take on that challenge. I came across those struggling in stride: Members of USMC, Army, Air Force, and countless veterans. I also came across seasoned hikers and mountaineers well equipped for the traverse. We just kept our pace and nod. The wilderness, no matter the elevation or climate, will grip you in literal seconds if you let your guard down. Bryce was certainly no exception.
