#tbt - #YosemiteNationalPark is a special place for me. It is where I asked the love of my life to be my wife. That’s kind of a big deal. As I thought of a place that was as that was as-big-of-a-deal enough to handle such a moment, Yosemite was the only real option. The fact that Madison agreed to marry me in this place has logged it away in mind as one of the most important spots on Earth. Sure, our relationship started else where, and life has now taken us all over the world, but there is something to be said about the place of the proposal that started us down this road together. I can’t wait to take our future kids to that very spot above Vernal Falls and say, “Check it out guys, this is where your beautiful mom agreed to marry me.” Oh, and I walked a this line in front of El Capitan a few times too, so there are other memories in the park as well...

A few nights ago we got to make a quick stop at one of my favorite National Parks, Bryce Canyon. Unfortunately, due to recent snow all of the trails were closed, but we did get to enjoy this beautiful sunset from the rim. Although we have a van for this trip, we later retreated to a hotel room as it was getting down to 8 degrees. Without a heater and our winter sleeping bags it would have been a rough night. How many of you guys have visited Bryce, and what did you think? Worthy of being up there with the best of the parks?

Glacier Point Road possibly offers the most iconic perspective of Yosemite Valley, and chances are if you visit Yosemite, you will spend at least some time taking in these views at 3,200 feet above sea level. ·

I am excited to be going back to the dry deserts of @deathvalleynps after over 7 years. While the name conjures images of isolation and desolation, this place is anything but. It is a tumultuous landscape interspersed by dry salt lakes and towering mountains, where the sinuous curves of smooth sand dunes stand side by side with colorful jagged rock formations. It is a place where sunrises are magical, sunsets are spectacular, and where the night sky is sublime.

Looking at photos from a trip years past brought back many nostalgic memories of scurrying along dusty back roads and hiking in jaw-dropping terrain. This one is from a hike to Zabriskie point early one winter morning.

I’ve been on skis a lot this season. Or at least, is feels like a lot. I’ve spent lightyears more days skiing this season than I ever have in a single season. Like, it’s not even close. Don’t get me wrong, I'm not breaking any records: I know more than a few people who have skied far more than I have this year, which is seriously awesome, but I ski for me and I’m pretty stoked on how much I’ve already jammed into the season. (Tangent: If you’re looking for a number, you won’t get it. That west-coast obsession with counting and broadcasting your “days” is egotistical, self-absorbed, and definitely makes me think you’re a tool—but that’s all for another post.) And there is a ton more skiing I want to get done. Jackson tomorrow, Taos in a couple weeks—guys, there are freaking COULOIRS just sitting there waiting for the avy conditions to moderate, begging us to straight-line the crap out of them. But spring is coming, burnout is real, recreational ADD is legitimate, and camping next to alpine lakes, biking through the desert, running through lupine meadows, and my @chacofootwear are all calling my name just as loudly as the spring corn.

Undecided on which was harder: this sketchy scramble or my robotics homework

Here’s a picture of the small novel we left in the summit log after toppin’ out the high point of Arches National Park

While walking in the woods of Yosemite Valley I was lucky enough to meet this young buck enjoying his own little stroll in a creek after a day of heavy snow. He walked around, looked at me, decided I wasn't a threat, and moved on, looking for any sort of green stuff that he could chew on. It was a great encounter!⁣

Most people climb the highest dune, and just take pictures of the dunes to the south, and leave. If you hike 2 miles south, you'll find dunes that are rarely visited and free of footprints.

Wupatki National Monument in Arizona is an amazing place to learn more about the Pueblos that are from historic villages that were occupied over 900 years ago.⁣

This past fall while cleaning out a long neglected equipment closet, Matt and I came across my grandparent’s cross country skis. Luckily for us, cross country ski technology hasn’t changed all that much in the 30ish years since these were purchased. Even more miraculous was the fact that their boots fit us both perfectly. I’m so happy that a love for the outdoors, and big feet, run in my family
