At the end of 2014, I flipped through my photos of all of my adventures outside of the studio and realized it had been a pretty good year. The great outdoors feeds my curiosity and inspires my creativity. In 2014 I snowshoed, hiked, paddled and explored through several states, and almost every weekend that summer began an early morning entry Facebook with “Good morning, it’s time to climb a mountain.” I self published a book of just photos of the beautiful places I ventured to, including climbing Oregon’s South Sister, paddling Montana’s Flathead Lake, or packing down Arizona’s Grand Canyon. Nature inspires indeed!
