What sort of camera do you have?

Most of what you see on my blog is shot with a Canon 70D and either a Canon 10-22mm or Canon 50mm f1.4 lens. Sometimes I use a Canon G12 point & shoot instead when I’m concerned about the weight of the SLR. For a tripod I use the ultralight Tamrac ZipShot. I also occasionally shoot with a Polaroid 250, Canon Elan 7e, and Canon FTb when I’m feeling old school. :)

Jefferson Park - Oregon

This season I’ve been avoiding the popular hikes, favoring solitude over jaw dropping beauty, but Jefferson Park is one hike that I’ll make an exception for just because it’s so damn beautiful. It’s stupid busy on the weekends and if you want a camp site, you’ve gotta get up there early, but the reward is a high plateau dotted with alpine lakes, green meadows, and lots of gnarly little krummholz trees, all with Oregon’s second highest volcano towering over you.

Backpacking in the rain still beats sittin’ on my ass at home.

9 things every oregon native knows to be true… I gotta say this guy pretty much nails it.

Backcountry Breakfast

I’ve been pretty burned out on the freeze dried breakfast options for backpacking lately, so I was like “fuck it, I’m doing pancakes and bacon.”

I used the foodsaver to package the bacon and butter and strategically placed them next to the water bladder in my pack to keep things cool. Gotta say it worked out quite well. It’s more weight to carry, but bacon and pancakes with real maple syrup before hitting the trail? I say hell yes!

Table Rock Wilderness - Oregon

Some late summer fun in the Oregon Cascades. The wildflowers may be gone, but so are the mosquitos and the crowds. :)
