Adventure Series: The Grandest of Snowfalls

Posted on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 7:21 PM MST

In January, 2017, a strong storm system dropped over 2 feet of snow across northern Arizona, including Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, and the Mogollon Rim. Seeing one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World is gorgeous enough on a normal day, but under a fresh blanket of snow is downright breathtaking. Enjoy the journey.

Adventure Series Returns for 2017

Posted on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 3:48 PM MST

I am extremely excited to announce that after being such a success last year, the Adventure Series will be returning starting this summer. We will be pushing deeper into the backcountry, and will be exploring more states, more countries, and more corners of Arizona.

The list is not yet finalized, but I think you'll really enjoy what I've got planned so far.

Adventure Series, Episode 4: Taming Sedona's Backcountry

Posted on Monday, August 22, 2016 at 10:06 AM MST

Towering cliffs, stunning vistas, and red rocks. Sedona's backcountry reminds us of a time when cowboys and outlaws ruled the wild, wild west, especially when you see places like Robber's Roost and Devil's Bridge. In a backcountry that's well-known for its terrible roads it is hard to ignore that tug. The tug that makes us push ourselves out of our comfort zone, further off the beaten path, and deeper into some of the most breathtaking backcountry in the southwest.

Adventure Series Episode 3: Sycamore Canyon/Perkinsville Road

Posted on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 at 12:06 PM MST

Nestled deep in the Kaibab, Prescott, and Coconino National Forests, Sycamore Canyon is one of the few pristine and untouched environments left today. In 1972, Sycamore Canyon was the first area designated as a Wilderness Area by the State of Arizona, so there are no roads, hiking trails, or crowds inside the canyon. The walls of the canyon are marked by colorful cliffs, soaring pinnacles, and a desert riparian area, making it one of the world's rarest habitats. The road to Sycamore Point is a 5 mile long gnarly, beat up road impassable in all vehicles except 4x4's, but if you're willing to push the envelope and explore a little, you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts. We then top it all off with a drive down Perkinsville Road, which offers stunning vistas of landscapes ranging from 3,500 to over 7,000 feet elevation, but is certainly not for the faint of heart.

I apologize for the shaky video in places. Even the best anti-shake in the world would have been no match for those gnarly, unmaintained back roads.
