33 Images that will transport you to Everest Base Camp
http://theplanetd.com/everest-base-camp-trek-photos/

Trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp was a dream come true for Dave and I. We had been obsessed with everything Everest in the past reading every book, and watching every documentary that we could on expeditions to the summit of the world’s highest mountain.

For a decade we talked about how “one day we’d like to see Everest.” We never thought we’d have the opportunity to see it with our own eyes.

Snowfall - ever since I was a little boy, it has always generated excitement in me to see snow falling from the sky.

Building a base and enjoying Mother Nature's dry spell on Colorado. 
foothill trailrunning - with an eye on the peaks Signing up for the Run Rabbit Run 50-miler in September has apparently lit a fire under my ass.  Either that or it's the motivation I get seeing my friends and cyber-buddies on...

February (??!) in Boulder, on the Mesa Trail by NCAR. There has been a HUGE blocking High Pressure ridge hanging around which has limited our snowfall in town quite a bit. Not good for the mountains and our snowpack, but has certainly made #trailrunning better because many more trail options are open and navigable without traction. Taking full advantage of the weather here!!

Putting this out there: there is a lot of talk about teaching your body to burn fat vs carbs in terms of fuel for ultras. With a new 50mi goal coming up in Sept, (RRR) I'm curious to know if going the fat burning route could help with GI and bonking. Anyone tried this approach instead of carrying the usual complement of simple sugars carbs for refueling? I'd love to "go light" in my races. Thx for input & thoughts!

Awesome. Just keep moving.
 
Age is just a number.
At 80 years of age, Elisa crossed the finish line of 'El Cruce'earlier this month. She had run for three days, crossing from Argentina to Chile, through the Andes mountains. This arresting image was taken shorty after. It captures that familiar cocktail of relief, exhaustion, and endorphins just ...

Story
Tagline
Enjoying dirt, snow, maps, fatherhood, Love and Adventure. My career is in geospatial services, but my passion is exploring.
Bragging rights
"One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards." ― Edward Abbey
