Goodbye Desert

Moving Camp in the desert.

Like all things do, my time in the desert has come to an end and I now find myself locked in a cold and snowy Alberta winter. I usually find it ridiculous when I hear other people say this, but I can't believe how fast the time went. Six weeks in the Middle East and if not for the photos, I'd have a hard time believing that it wasn't a dream.

Spent the past two days instructing some mellow ice climbing.The temps weren't too cold and it was a civilized reintroduction to the icy north. Taking off in the morning to CMH Bugaboos to begin the heli ski season. It sounds like the lodge is getting dumped on and I am looking forward to verifying the reports. Won't be back in Canmore until after the New Year...

In the meantime, here are some shots and stories that got published while I was away.

A diddy about skiing some classic K-Country lines last spring. Highline Magazine.

Heli Skiing at the Bobbie Burns last winter. Highline Magazine.

My first Patagonia Catalog shot. This just appeared in the Japan Holiday Favorites Catalog. I took this in 2007 at Ama Dablam Base Camp in Nepal.

Booting up the Groove Tube at Icefall Lodge last spring. MEC is using this for a woman's only newsletter...
