Colorado

The second part of my spring break involved a quick trip out to Denver, Colorado to visit my best friend, Blair, as well as my brother and his family who came down to visit. It was unfortunately cut short because of the storm that hit out there, but I still was able to have two solid days of spending time with some of my favorite people.

The first day out there Blair and I drove to Boulder to do some hiking. It was raining when we got there, but right when we started out hike it cleared up and left us with some awesome clouds.

I didn’t shoot nearly as much as I expected, since I was more focused on just enjoying my time there with them, but I did get some images of jellyfish, which I have always wanted.

Horseshoe Canyon Ranch

Two weekends ago I went on a quick climbing trip with some friends to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in Arkansas. Unfortunately we got rained out one day and only had 2 days of climbing. It was still an incredible trip though. I didn’t shoot nearly as much as I thought I would, but I did manage to get some images I am happy with, so enjoy!

We arrived at the ranch around noon on Saturday, and were greeted by almost 80 degree weather. It was incredibly beautiful, and I immediately fell in love with the location.

Day 2 was foggy, rainy, and cold. It had stopped raining for a bit and so we went out trying to find some dry rock only for the rain to start back up and storms rolled in. It made for quite the dreamy looking landscape though.

Day 3 started out fairly cold and foggy again, but ended up clearing out and becoming a beautiful, perfect for climbing day.
