Jumping in Lake Notasha

Posted on Sep 20, 2015 in Adventure, Photo of the Day


This lake looked too inviting to not jump in, and the weather was perfect for it! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to discover this place. It’s practically in my back door. Sky Lakes Wilderness – I’ll be back for sure.

Marble Mountain Wilderness on Labor Day Weekend 2015

Posted on Sep 8, 2015 in Adventure, GoPro, Video

Spent the weekend exploring the Marble Mountain Wilderness with my brother. We started at Shackleford Creek trailhead making our way past Campbell Lake to spend the night at Summit Lake. The next day we moved on to Sky High Lakes before settling down at Shadow Lake overlooking them all. Finally, we hiked the 10 mile trek back to Shackleford Creek Trailhead, this time passing by Log Lake. Overall we covered around 22 miles over the weekend.

Exploring Middle Fork Applegate River

Posted on Jun 8, 2015 in Adventure, Entertainment, GoPro


Some fun river exploring on a hot summer day after church. I didn’t want to end up “working” so I left my DSLR at home and used my iPhone 6+. For the video I used my GoPro Hero 3 and Feiyu Tech G4 gimbal.

Big Red Mountain – Dec 13, 2014

Snow, Tent, and Stars

I figured I’d take the opportunity this weekend to camp in the snow and take some photos before winter track engulfs my life. I was fortunate to find a spot with virtually no wind and was happy that the clouds cleared out a few times for some great pics.

Big Red Mountain is positioned between Mt. Ashland and Dutchmans Peak, about 20 miles up Wagner Creek Rd.

Inside Grayback Shelter

We called Grayback Mountain Shelter home for the weekend, staying warm by the wood stove in the cozy 10×12 ft cabin, playing cards, eating food and listening to Christmas music (thanks to Goal Zero). In the afternoon we climbed to the top of Grayback Mountain which, sitting at 7000 ft, has an excellent view of the surrounding area – including LTE network!

There appears to be a neat little community around this cabin with people leaving various supplies on each trip for others to use – we found cans of chili, camp chairs, axes, lanterns, utensils and more. As we departed for home there were two local guys prepping their chainsaw to cut a bunch of firewood for the upcoming snowy winter.

This was definitely a weekend to remember. I’d like to get back here when there’s a foot or two of snow on the ground!
