Trip Report
Desert Pictures (mostly) - Zion, JTree, and Red Rocks
Tuesday August 25, 2009 10:22pm
Hey supertopians - here are my pictures from my two month climbing roadtrip around the desert, plus a few from a week in Squamish. A few of these I posted before, but I just got around to the rest of them. There are many scenery pictures and some climbing shots. I also wrote up all about the trip on my blog, climbingnomad.blogspot.com

The pics are below, but you can also view them on my website along with the rest of my photography here,

hey there say, luquitos... wow, first off---how is santa cruz... i sure MISS it... one of my brothers lives near there...

many childhood memories... even sailing ... and the ol' beach, of course...

i will have to relook, as they download...

god bless and thanks for the share... i love pics...

Hey jaybro, unfortunately my pinky toe is a bit broken. stupid slackline, so shoving my way up that crazy machine doesn't seem too likely right now, but i'd love to try it sometime.

hey neebee, santa cruz is great, gotta love the summer here, especially now that the smoke has cleared from the air, maybe you heard there was a big fire up in bonny doon, no serious injuries thankfully that i know of.
