07. Salmon and Bear Glaciers - September 2016
Salmon Glacier - 11 September, 2016 Lizzie and I weren't sure what to expect when we rolled into Stewart, B.C. at 9:30pm. We were headed from Alaska to Utah, and had traveled less than half way when we stopped over to explore some glaciers near the small po...

The Portage Glacier, between Girdwood and Whittier Alaska,

Bomber Traverse - Hut-To-Hut backpacking through the Talkeetna Mountains
Fog settled across us like
a blanket dropped over our heads. We slowed our pace and stayed close, but Joe

The day it snowed in

can't keep my mind still to simply enjoy the calm morning. I sit by the side
of a kettle pond, waiting.  I have over an hour until the group I will be photographing today begins ice climbing, and I'm in no ...

Glaciers: Prelude - Land of Ice
Our plane taxied into the terminal just after 6:00 a.m. local
time. I had ‘slept’ for maybe an hour on the flight and spent the previous 18 hours in cramped airplanes or bustling airports. Excitement and exhaustion faded into dread when I realized the plane...

20. Dart Glacier - 8 February, 2018
--> “Condition of the road?” She shrugged. “Oh I don’t know, we don’t
maintain that. Besides, everyone’s vehicles and driving abilities are
different.” This was not the answer I was expecting to hear from a ranger when

19. Fox Glacier - 30 Jan, 2018
I had travelled to New Zealand in
search of adventures. I wanted a sampling of what the country had to offer,
and, while I had little money to travel abroad, I had heard of the rather
generous Working Holiday Visa offered by the country. It took less than t...
