Not quite the same as last night's display, but still a nice way to end one day and welcome the promise of tomorrow. #liveyouradventure #sunset #thanks #gratitude...

It’s been said that in photography, sunsets…

It's been said that in photography, sunsets are cliché. While this is perhaps true, I reckon that clichés exist because there's a degree of profound truth hidden within their tired shells. Sunset for me is a glorious ending that offers in its color and vibrance the promise of more to come, another day's dawning, and with it the hope of another tomorrow, a better tomorrow, festooned with the playful, hopeful tones fading on the horizon. Tonight Ryrie and I sat by the pond and marveled at the display across the meadow and high above Hicks Mountain, breathing in the promise of tomorrow and the wonder at what just was and what soon will be. "I cry very easily. It can be a movie, a phone conversation, a sunset - tears are words waiting to be w...

Stunning view from Fuego Camp on day…

Stunning view from Fuego Camp on day 2 of the Antigua to Atitlan trek. It was a big one yesterday, maybe 10 miles with about 4000 feet of ascent, but the whole crew - including 5 kids - did great. We arrived in Pachute with an impressive display of lightning and thunder and a big plume off distant Volcan Fuego, which erupted violently back in June. As always, though, @trekguatemala did an amazing job of preparing camp and keeping everyone dry, warm, fed, and happy. Today, another hike onward toward Atitlan. #liveyouradventure #liveyourfamilyadventure #whyihike...

Even at 12-1/2, Pema still loves to adventure. She'll plod along slowly on a trail, but as soon as I veer off, her energy rises, the thought of finding a new creek, interesting smells, and of course some nice rocks to carry brings a burst of vigor. We're often in the boonies, zig-zagging through dead fall, scrambling up rock towers (we have a good system for easy 5th class scrambling with her in between my chest and the rock, lifted from ledge to ledge), fording hidden creeks, and discovering yummy remnants from lion kills. (Pema enjoys the latter more than me.) I'm convinced our adventures, although tiring for both, also help keep her young and strong; I know her companionship in the hills does that for me! And, it's even better now with t...

Eleven. Hard to believe. This girl has taught me beyond words since she came into our lives in 2007. From enduring rain on Mt. Kinabalu at 7 months to handing Taggie to strangers in South 24 Parganas, West Bengal 8 months later, Lila - through our work and perhaps not her choice - experienced more of the world in her first 2 years than I did in my first 2 decades. It caused some shell shock for a while, an understandable desire to be home rather than away, in the known rather than the unknown. But in recent years, her desire to travel, to learn, to engage, and to experience has exploded, coupled with an openness to the experiences available only far outside our Colorado bubble. She's taught me that patience often leads us to better lessons ...

Six miles into the Indian Peaks Wilderness…

Six miles into the Indian Peaks Wilderness from Lake Granby is one of the most stunning areas in all of Colorado, and yet more often than not you can visit it without another soul around. Reflected in the crystal waters of Crater Lake is the pinnacle of Lone Eagle Peak. I've spent many days in this valley with no other company but some marmot and moose and my own thoughts and reflections. It's close in yet far away, and an simple place to absorb the cleansing and healing tonic of wilderness. This is but one of many reasons why I hike. #whyihike #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer #indianpeakswilderness #loneeaglepeak #bestmountainartists...

Every once in a while, your travels…

Every once in a while, your travels take you to a place that is so enchanting, so magnetic in its ethereal spirit and subtle power, that it draws you back before you've even left. It's almost never a result of a single factor such as environmental beauty, cultural significance, or local interaction, but rather a precise and rare recipe combining all the above. We were fortunate enough to stumble upon such a place this past week on the remote, wild, and beautiful Pacific Coast of Colombia north of Nuqui called Morromico. More to come... #liveyouradventure #liveyourfamilyadventure @morromico #morromico...

A beautiful way to start the day and beat the scorching heat a few days ago with a nice alpine climb on Mount Evans. Sunrise wasn't half bad, either, especially with no one around but some marmot avcs mountain sheep. #liveyouradventure #shotbypixel...

Water. To most of us in the…

Water. To most of us in the developed world, it's something we take for granted. Turn the right tap, cold, clean water comes out. Turn the left, hot, clean water comes out. Sprinklers click on automatically, spraying potable water on our lawns even when it's raining. Water scarcity, while a growing concern, is generally just an occasional annoyance for the vast majority of us. But, what if that bounty changed? What if our abundance turned suddenly to scarcity - as in Capetown and many other places - and the taps stopped flowing? We'd find ourselves abruptly tossed into the difficult reality of some 860 million globally who live without consistent access to safe water. For nearly 1 in 7 inhabitants of the globe, days are spent in a continua...

And, we’re off! Heading back to Nepal…

And, we're off! Heading back to Nepal with two other families for some fun adventures in Langtang and to connect with old friends nearby as well. Amazed that we'll have 7 kids, ages 7 - 13, tromping through the hills. Fortunately, with @miahwatt on board as well, we adults won't be outnumbered anymore. Good times ahead! #liveyouradventure...
