Ummmm.......Could we slow it down a bit? 9 and 1/2 miles an hour sounds good to me. Hank, go put the sign up!

This past winter I ran into Jared Slater in the Backcountry of Wyoming. I was trying to take photos of him smoking, but he wasn't having it. Kind of funny in my mind. I started just shooting auto focus from the hip as a joke and ended up with this shot. I just found it while editing my Jackson stuff from the year and felt like posting it. I like the anonymous feel. Opps, looks like I blew it.

I just came out of a great 5 day raft trip down Hells Canyon of the Snake River. Instead of a high priced beach front vacation we opted for a more adventureous working holiday. We put my new (to me) boat to the test and old Barney passed with flying colors. Hells Canyon is truly the Grand Canyon of the north, as it's actually the deepest Canyon in North America, beating out the Grand Canyon in Arizona by about 1000 feet. Something I didn't know prior to this trip. Amazing scenery. Amazing food. Fresh trout and bass. PBR. Just some of the good life the river has to offer.
Pushing off. Steve with Pretty Keene.
The first big rapid of the day. All the note worthy rapids are encountered on the first day. 1 of about 5. I think this photo makes it look pretty small but I can assure you it is big and pushy, and will definitely take you out if you're not cautious.
Rapid 2. Caryn and I swam the whole thing. Not quite on purpose. We opted for a more difficult route river right and got swamped out of the boat. Definitely a "good" near drowning experience.
Camp site numero uno. No need for a rain fly. Sleeping under the stars. We ended up staying here two nights because we were so exhausted.
Hor 'dourvs to be served shortly

After reading Cole Barash's and Chase Jarvis' blog yesterday I got a bit excited to shoot more photos with my iPhone. I never really messed around with all the apps that are available, and I must say 5 minutes later and $8 broker, I was way impressed and hooked. Messing around with all the many features available to edit photos right on the iPhone I ended up with this image within the first few minutes. I thought it made a cool stamp and was definitely a direct influence of the new NEW YORKER cover, which was taken with an iPhone and then manipulated with one of the many apps. I'm excited to use my iPhone in this manner much more in the future. For now, step back into time. Or at least that is how this image makes me feel. It was actually taken at the REI parking lot in Denver two weeks ago.
