To achieve one of this journey for me there is so many hands. Who really helped me in many different way and got me to the one point I am really thankful to them form the bottom of my heart. @takeonnepal where grew up and get all those opportunities to be part of adventure and learn do many things about adventure in my life. @zachviolett & @stephaniemarieviolett who let me climb mountain for the first time in my life which I been dreaming for so long. It's been three years since we had so amazing in those mountains together and begains mountaineering in my life and introducing all those great mountaineer.
I’ve been wanting to paint the Tetons from Idaho for a while now. I’ll be hanging a show at the Teton Arts Gallery in Driggs this Friday, and this opportunity seemed like the perfect time finally hop over the pass with my subject matter. Pretty excited with how this turned out! Now to try and crank out a big version of it on wood before Friday...
Stay tuned for details regarding the opening and such!

With all the snow this past winter, the Grand will be wearing a winter coat well into the summer season. Snow makes for slow going on the upper mountain, but our guides live for challenging conditions. ⠀
This shot is from last year's early-season trip with @mountainhardwear. They spent most of summit day in a cloud. Check our linkin.bio for more about the climb!
I wanted to make a post to sort of get people’s feedback, even though I think I’ve already made the decision of what I’m gonna do on my next couple of days off... But who knows, if someone gives really exceptional feedback maybe I would change my mind. But also I just want to talk a little bit about the mindset and decision making that goes into my days off. I’d love to say that I’m just running around trying to bump into things randomly, but there’s a little bit more that goes into it than just that. I’m working a security position for Vail resorts, @grandtetonlodgeco. Fortunately that puts me in Grand Teton national Park, one of the best places for landscape and wildlife photography combined. But I’m also obnoxiously close to Yellowstone National Park. And I’m working the overnight shift also known as the graveyard. The overall sleep and meals cycle is definitely pretty harsh. But once I get it nailed down I think it’s the perfect shift for photography, considering that I can find a way to shoot pretty much each day when it is light out. But with that said, that means I’m doing quite a bit of grand Teton photography during the week. And I don’t think I have any doubt in my mind that Yellowstone offers the best overall wildlife chances, especially with my detailed knowledge of the park from the past. It’s a tough decision, there is some incredible wildlife in both parks. With that said, what do you think that I should do? Or what would you do if you were me, trying to get the shots that you would want to get? I’ll most likely be sleeping in my car somewhere outside northern Yellowstone for my next two days off. 🐻🦅 🐺 @discover_wyoming @wyomingmagazine @wilderness_culture @artofvisuals @usinterior
While the doctor was continuing his education, Haig and I were out adventuring and enjoying the Tetons! Did you know that people who are physically active live longer and lower risk for heart disease, depression, and some cancers? 🏔 #freshair#mountainair#tetons#jacksonhole#hiking
