The Problem Skip ahead to “The Workflow” if you don’t care about the background. As someone who is more often on the road than not, I needed to figure out some kind of cloud storage solution for my photos that could be accessed — and worked with — anywhere with internet. I also wanted something […]

After a quick rally from Utah to Vermont in time to catch a few laps on my favorite river, the New Haven, and to catch up with friends on the Deerfield Dryway, Daphnee and I dropped Dog off at my parents’ house and caught a direct flight from NY to Lima, Peru. The only advice […]

I haven’t spent much time on the beach and I haven’t been to California since I was 10, but after this short visit, I think I’ll be back again soon. Next time someone asks me how to train for the Stikine, my answer might be, “Paddle into the break in the winter in San Francisco and […]

Off in the haze of the ever-shrinking Lake Bonneville (i.e. the Great Salt Lake), just west of Ogden, lies Antelope Island, a Utah state park home to a handful of bison, well-preserved shorelines, and some very old rock. It’s also home to some gut-busting sandy climbs, miles of fun and scenic singletrack, and epic desert landscapes […]

Back when we moved to Utah (just over a year ago), we thought we could continue to fashion ourselves “whitewater kayakers” while living in the desert. So, we drove. A lot. Around Utah, throughout Idaho and Wyoming, and even all the way to Montana. In the process, we discovered one of the best kept whitewater […]

Every place has that thing that tourists always do and locals only do when they’ve got friends visiting. In New York, it’s the Empire State building. In Logan, UT, it’s hiking to the Wind Cave. After more than a year living here, we finally buckled down, kidnapped a couple neighborhood dogs, and made the 5 […]

We’ve been trying to visit a lot of new places in Utah this fall since we’ll only be living here for at most another year, and while it’s hard not to go to the same places over and over again when those places are Moab, it’s paying off. Last weekend, we went to the San […]
