A few more from the Rockies

Evenings in the alpine environment often produce really amazing light. These photos were taken the other night as a few friends and I hiked down from a very fun day up in Rocky Mountain National Park. Although I did not climb the boulder I had hoped to, and ended up with a heinous skin tear on a finger on my right hand, I still had one of the best days out yet. Just being in the mountains with some good people is more than enough to put me in a good mood.

On the day we went up to climb there was a pretty large fire burning around Lumpy Ridge. The fire caught ablaze due to a lightning strike that touched down the previous day. I think that the wild fire had an affect on the atmosphere in which made for a really amazing sun set , and I was lucky enough to get a few photos of it seen below....

I have been staying up in Nederland with one of my long time best friends from back in Connecticut, Steve King. We got out to do a little painting the other day at a look out up above his rad new home in Ned...Didn't produce anything I was happy with but it was fun to push some paint around and spend some time with my good friends outside.

Here is a little video we shot of the Marble the other day up in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was nice to climb on this problem especially since as we arrived in the park it was raining and then sleeting. We decided to hike up despite questionable conditions and had a fun but short session. So....
