The view of relief. Enjoying a pit stop and photo opp as we climb our way up Hart Mountain, so much of everything right next to the nothing. . . . #asceniclife

A few hours after the asphalt ended…and a few still to go. Feeling quite full for how empty it is out here. . . . #asceniclife

This is basically the kit (plus a ton of climbing gear) for this spring/summer. We're planning to be all around The Great PNW playing in our favorite zones with our favorite humans (of course). If you see us please come over and say howdy, we'd love to meet you and I'll probably give you a sticker too! Cheers to crushing projects, travels, festivals and having way too much fun...see you out there! . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #toyotahighlander240k+

Such a pleasure to work and spend time in the coveted Bull Run Watershed. The Bull Run River begins at its headwaters of Bull Run Lake and is the source of Portland's magnificent (and famous) drinking water. This area is under strict lock and key, basically it's off limits to everyone which makes this unique area essentially untouched by humans. No hiking, no logging, no fishing, no hunting, no peeing, no pooping, no littering, no swimming....no nothing, water maintenance only! . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #bullrunwatershed

Our new ride. She's a custom Yamaha TW200 and I named her "Rambler." You'll be seeing a lot more of her this summer...because well, she'll be everywhere. . . . #asceniclife #yamahatw200 #tw200custom

Rainy weather has me dreaming up summer road trips. Looking forward to another Alvord run, and this time I'll have a motorcycle along for the ride. Has anyone else seen that giant beer tower over near La Grande, or is that just me? . . . #asceniclife

My wife walks in and says, "What's this mess, what are you doing?" - Babe, I'm just getting started.... . What mess of trouble is everyone getting into this #sundayfunday ? . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #weighmyrack #headedtothehills

The great thaw is upon us as ice and snow retreat to the advance of falling rain and rising waters. I hope we get another cold snap this winter. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #shepardsdell #columbiarivergorgeous #exploreoregon #unexploredoregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #liveoregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife #conqueroregon #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #upperleftusa

When the road you're on gets monotonous, simply find yourself a different one.

Latourell has always been a favorite spot. Today we took the time to show the little guy where my dad took me on so many hikes for so many years.

Out for a quick hike with my little man cub in the home turf of #corbettoregon. Latourell has always been a favorite spot with nearly weekly visits as a kid. These days it is usually passed up for objectives hiding deeper in the Gorge, but always passed with a sentimental (and appreciative) glance. However, today we took the time to show the pup where grandpa took dad (me) on so many hikes for so many years.

Sending some airtime while staying at the Barlow Ridge Hut. Big thanks to @expedition_pnw for the photo. Be sure to check out and follow their amazing images as they tramp around the home zone. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #tindy #tindygrab #cascadehuts #splitboardsoversnowshoes #mthood #mthoodoregon #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #unexploredoregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #liveoregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife #pnwsnow #oregonbackcountry #conqueroregon #optoutside #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #upperleftusa #modernoutdoors #wildernessculture #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #cascadiaexplored #campingcollective #liveoutdoors #stayandwander

Chasing @expedition_pnw on the way up to the Barlow Ridge Hut. The Cascade Huts are really worth checking out, they come equipped with all you need, heat, a cooking stove (with pots, pans, dishware), bunks with sleeping bags and mats, you simply supply the food and drink. I'll have more images once I process some film. So, does anyone else wanna hit this road gap? . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #cascadehuts #splitboardsoversnowshoes #mthood #mthoodoregon #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #unexploredoregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #liveoregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife #pnwsnow #oregonbackcountry #conqueroregon #optoutside #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #upperleftusa #modernoutdoors #wildernessculture #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #cascadiaexplored #campingcollective #liveoutdoors #stayandwander #staypnw

One crazy night at Tilly Jane Cabin and you'll want to stay there every night. Good friends, good food, and a pony keg for the duration.

Bullion Basin, WA. - [1/2] While visiting family over Thanksgiving weekend @shipap and I were able to sneak out for some preseason snow action. We skinned up Bullion Basin near @crystalmountain on our split-boards and went as far and high as time would allow. There was just enough snow to make it enjoyable and it certainly fed our daydreams for deeper days. Besides, nothing beats cold turkey sandwiches, playing in the snow and victory beers! . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #bullionbasin #herpnwlife #washingtonexplored #explorewashington #unexploredwashington #unseenwashington #washingtonnw #livewashington #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife #pnwsnow #washingtonbackcountry #conquerwashington

My current photo kit and some daily items for chasing down unique experiences in the PNW. I really enjoy using different cameras and lenses, to me each one seems to capture a different vibe. I'll usually carry just one or two at a time, choosing the cameras for what I think will work best on a particular objective or a specific shot. You know, one for the hike, another for the bar. This has proven to be an excellent way to learn each camera, then, once the film returns from processing I'm always surprising with unexpected photographs. Big thanks to all my friends who (even after all these years) continue to allow me to stick random cameras in their faces. . . . #asceniclife #photokit #filmshooter #pnwphotographer #pnwphotog #coffeetablephotography #scenicnorthwest #nikon #minolta #canon #mammutheadlamp #medicinepouch #lomography #sogknives #harmonica

Gold Butte Lookout, OR [6/6] The morning was breathtaking and although we had a long and sleep deprived night, the reward was amazing! We knew that we'd be doing it all over agiain very soon. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #goldbutte #goldbuttelookout #oregonexplored #exploregon #exploreoregon #unexploregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #jj_oregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife

Gold Butte Lookout, OR [5/6] After hiking through the dark (including an extra gear shuttle back to the start of the trail) we finaly reached the lookout in a hot, sweaty tired mess just after 11pm. We were able to make quick time getting our gear sorted, victory cocktails made and tucked into bed. The illusion of “romantic get-way” finally destroyed once I was kicked out of bed to sleep on a cot. I probably deserved it. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #goldbutte #goldbuttelookout #oregonexplored #exploregon #exploreoregon #unexploregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #jj_oregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife

Gold Butte Lookout, OR [4/6] Five minutes up the road and the illusion of a quick romatic get-away was begining to desolve. I underestimated the description which was accurate, it was a steep walk, and we brought way too much gear. Our progress was slow. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #goldbutte #goldbuttelookout #oregonexplored #exploregon #exploreoregon #unexploregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #jj_oregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife

Gold Butte Lookout, OR [3/6] A double check of the schedule showed we had the weekend free. I called my lady and said, “So, you wanna go to a lookout tonight?” At first she was a little hesitant but with a little more information she was convinced. I billed the experiance as a quick romatic get-away, and that everything would be perfectly magical, (as I often do) and it often is. So we planned to leave right after work. I finished the packing. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #goldbutte #goldbuttelookout #oregonexplored #exploregon #exploreoregon #unexploregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #jj_oregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife

Gold Butte Lookout, OR [1/2] I begain packing even before notifying my wife of the the developing plans. I also jumped online to research the lookout. Gold Butte Lookout (4,618’) was used as part of an aircraft warning defense system during WWII and looked easy enough to get to. Though, the description and directions ended with, “The lookout is located approximately half a mile from the parking area. You will be hiking on a road to a saddle and from there a steep trail to the summit.” . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #goldbutte #goldbuttelookout #oregonexplored #exploregon #exploreoregon #unexploregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #jj_oregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife

Gold Butte Lookout, OR [1/6] It started with a text message at 10:25 in the morning on a Friday. @expedition_pnw told me that they had rented a fire lookout near Detroit Lake for three nights, unfortunately they would not be able to make it for Friday night and that I should use it in their place. Nothing like a last minute unplanned trip to jack your morning into high gear. . . . #asceniclife #scenicnorthwest #goldbutte #goldbuttelookout #oregonexplored #exploregon #exploreoregon #unexploregon #unseenoregon #oregonnw #jj_oregon #pnwdiscovered #pnwlife

Alvord Desert [7/7] One last parting shot...of the playa itself.
