Cheers to those who pick up at a moments notice and follow me and Avenue into Utah's West Desert. I have written in the past about the deafening silence out in the Salt Flats and it still holds true, never disappoints. Pat and I, along with Avenue of course, hiked to a peak out in the middle of nowhere for some epic shots. I leave you with some stellar photos from this past weekend.
Not too much to say other than it's always badass to be with good company in the most beautiful place on earth. The cherry on top is getting on rock and testing your physical limits then feeling exhausted while sitting back by a camp fire grubbing down on stellar food. Cheers ya'll who made this one hell of an experience!
Desert camping and mountain hiking have been the dominate reality over the past four weeks. Reminiscing with old friends over whisky at the Knolls, climbing Sun Dial Peak with my cousin, and capturing epic night skies over the Salt Flats has led to some stellar galleries below. Along with the images there have been recent events in my life that I've not captured which I'd like to briefly document.
I had an urge to up and leave town this past weekend to the Great Basin National Park in Nevada. I've bike toured US-50 or "The Loneliest Road in America" back in 2009 with Tim. At the time we decided not to trek the side road towards the entrance which is located in little town of Baker. There's almost an 8,000 ft difference in elevation between Wheeler Peak and the valley floor...bike touring up to the base of the peak was not an option.
