Spring in Utah lasts about 2 minutes, 3 if we're lucky. This year we had a nice green Spring in the mountains. enjoying the sunrise on Mt. Timpanogos in my cool new sleeping bag.

ryan_thayne: PLEASE SHARE: A week ago this beautiful slot

PLEASE SHARE: A week ago this beautiful slot canyon inside Escalante National Monument was vandalized by two individuals that decided it would look better with their names carved into the wall of the canyon. Myself, along with many others, were deeply affected by the news and photos of the vandalism. See and for more information about this case. This kind of behavior is disgusting, selfish, illegal and the individuals responsible need to be held to account. LEAVE NO TRACE: As social media has grown so has the number of people visiting natural treasures like this unique slot canyon. In order to preserve the land we hold dear we must educate ourselves and those around us on the principles of LEAVE NO TRACE. Sadly there seem to be a growing number of people without this respect for nature. They instead have the selfish and stupid attitude of "leave your mark." We can change the momentum back to a respect for nature. Let's use social media wisely. Help spread a respect for nature and wildlife. Be considerate of other visitors and LEAVE NO TRACE.

ryan_thayne: What

What's your definition of a good time? Mine's solo hiking atop a high desert butte in the middle of winter. Ok, so maybe I added some details that are specific to this particular photo, but i do love the feeling of being alone in the desert miles away from anyone or anything, and this is one of my favorite places to find that solitude. It was very cold that day. I was hoping the sun would come out but it never did. That's ice btw. Hiking down the north side of this butte was pretty sketch considering there's no trail, and the ground was covered in a thin layer of snow and ice, and i waited until sunset before hiking down. Don't try this at home kids.

Balanced Rock at sunset. I had to set my camera on the ground with the lens hovering just barely over the water to get this reflection.

I wasn't planning to be in this photo, but with the thick fog blocking the view through the arch, I had to come up with something else to frame. Thankfully i was wearing pants.
