Best Adventure Photos of 2017

Best Adventure Photos of 2017

For the past few years I’ve made a “best photos of” article at the beginning of the New Year. There are as many ways to determine your “best” photos as there are photographers and I’ve opted to keep it simple and somewhat automated. Since photography is a form of communication, I’ve left the choosing up […]

Best Photos of 2016

Best Photos of 2016

We’re well into 2017 so I guess it’s about time I show off my most successful mountain bike, ski, travel and adventure photos from last year. I don’t know if these are actually my best photos of 2016. How do you determine “best,” anyway? To help me narrow my picks down, I started with my […]

Hydration Review: Platypus plusBottle Collapsible Water Bottle For Ski Touring

I bought the Platypus plusBottle about a year ago for backcountry skiing. It’s a soft, completely collapsible 1-liter (34 ounces) water bottle with a push/pull cap that I carry inside the pocket of a light softshell jacket.
