Chaco Canyon, May 2017

In May of 2017, I went on a solo adventure to Chaco Canyon National Historical Park, traversing down 20+ miles of rough dirt roads to the park’s entrance. I camped outside of the park, and spent two days day hiking around the park to various historic sites, including the famous supernova petroglyph from 1054 AD, […]

Lower Antelope Canyon, May 2017

In May, 2017 I visited Lower Antelope Canyon outside of Page, Arizona. Touring the canyon was on my short list of things to see before I moved from Arizona to Oregon. I finally edited the photos, over a year and a half later. This website is in dire need of updates, but for now, editing […]

In April, I lost Alabama, my 13 year old cat, to congestive heart failure and endured the singular most difficult day of my life in the wake […]

Bandelier National Monument, March 2015

In the middle of March, a small faction of the Tamarind Adventure Club participated in a day-hike excursion to Bandelier National Monument. We walked the well-known Frijoles Canyon Trail, visiting cliff dwellings along the canyon walls as well as the Alcove House, which I documented in an earlier post from a solo visit in November. However, it […]
