@hazel_findlay sticks, hooks, and whips on small gear at a purty durn good flash attempt on @pkingsbury ‘s awesome Pat’s Blue Ribbon 5.13-. It’s been something hanging out with Hazel over the last little while. She really tends to go for it, and when not absolutely punching it, often looks like she’s just standing around thinking about where the car keys might be. Cheers ‘ol hen, hope to hang and climb again soon. 🧐😉 #climbing #rockclimbing #liveclimbrepeat #tradclimbing #blackdiamond #indiancreek #bearsears #whip #desert #utah #climbing_is_my_passion #climbing_photos_of_instagram #climbingphotography #climbing_is_my_passion

The call of the American Southwest seems louder and more prevelant these days. Perhaps it's the getting older, and the longing for a simpler, quieter, more pragmatic approach to life. But all just the same, that inevitable call for the chaos and the unknown comes roaring back, even louder. Ah, the dilemma. #bearsears #bearsearsnationalmonument #natgeoadventure #natgeo #instautah #utah #utahisrad #utahgram #igersutah #igutah #weloveutah #utahunique @visitutah #blackandwhite #county_features

I once read somewhere that consciousness and awareness are a lot like a water tap. Much of the time it runs in a bit of a trickle, which may have something to do with that old “using only 20% of your brain” thing. Occasionally, the water gets turned way up -either intentionally (gambling, inertia, coffee, drama, hot peppers, action, corn mold, and other mysterious substances) or whatever, sometimes shit gets turbo- and a flood of input crashes over, somewhere in the colorful spectrum between forest rain and put-down-a-riot firehose... maybe it’ll wash the crust out of your eyes, maybe sting blurry like strong pool chlorine, maybe just muddy the waters even further. They say it’s about floating like a cork, not fighting against the current... but you want to Get Somewhere, to shore, to land. To turn the flow down a few CFS. You’re paddling, treading water, drinking some too. Trying. But to float you gotta relax... Let go. Give up and just balance. Float with the flow. Hard to do when you’re trying to Do Something... feels exactly the opposite of what you oughta be up to. Makes the least sense. Probably the most important time to do it. Storytelling and analogies for highballs, runouts, and life aside, I’ve never been able to float. Sink like a stone. Fill lungs, spread limbs, hold just a little air, lay back a touch... bloop. Davey Jones locker. Muck, bottom feeders... but hopefully forgotten treasure, and the roots of things, down below the surface, drinking from that stream.

Don’t be afraid of trying. Be afraid of not knowing. I’d rather fall and fail over and over again than living a life of missed opportunities and regrets. . . . . . #climber #goatworthy #fueledbyprobar #climbingwomen #chickswhoclimb #climbinglife #utah #utahisrad #bearsears #neat #jacksonwiththeboys #belayshionship #bae #climbingworldwide #belayersquarterly #repel #outside #granitegear #climbing_lovers

Been in Durango for a couple of days doing the other side of #vanlife: shocks and rear brakes on the Sprinter before rocketing back out to the Creek to tidy up some projects on film and on rock. @tc.bukowski pic here of the FA of Still Life at Indian Creek. It’s been nice to check out for a bit down here in the Southwest for a few days.. bouldered at the first area I ever climbed, took some big hikes, got good and drunk with some high school buddies, told stories. Sometimes that’s just the thing. #indiancreek #bouldering #climbing #fa #firstascent #rockclimbing #bearsears #friendsofindiancreek #accessfund

Sometimes, the rope is a nerve, a tuned string connecting you to your partner, high or low. It’s a lifeline, or in the way, or a savior, or jail while you stretch and roll an aching neck. Sometimes it’s a victory-whip-flip swingset, or a sudden leash for the furry friend in cattle country. It’s your link to the ground, the sky, your partner, for better or worse more than many know. It’s the way up, the way down, the way out and home. Sometimes it’s the only thing you have to hang on to, exhausted and defeated, figuring shit out. This week, thanks to BD and FOIC, we’re giving away a BD 60m 9.4 magical frikkin’ lasso to somebody out there. To enter: (1) follow @friendsofindiancreek @chris_schulte and @blackdiamond_climb ✔️ (2) tag a friend in the comments below who needs a line, or knows how bad you need one ✔️ (3) tag these 3 accounts in a story of your own with a little about why how what-fer you need a swicked green string ✔️ Winner will be announced Friday morning, April 26.

Owachomo Bridge at Natural Bridges National Monument, located in the Bears Ears region of southern Utah. Owachomo means "rock mound" in Hopi and it is named after the rock mound on top of one end of the bridge. Many people are familiar with natural arches, in part thanks to the national park, also in Utah, but natural bridges are technically different. While both may appear similar, bridges are actually formed by water current, whereas arches are formed by other types of erosion. This bridge is actually even more interesting in that the water that eroded it no longer passes through, but rather around the whole formation, making it appear more arch-like.

One Scrambler's tie rod broke at Hotel Rock on Day 8. (The documentary photo at this time will be later) Sexy Jeep was interested in how to recover, so went to see it. However! Rubi parked on a diagonal rock and opened the door, too strong, Rubi's door strap? was broken ... ( ;∀;) The door was broken totally unrelated to the difficulty of the trail ... So, before going back to the AZ direction, it's a repair. Day8のHotel Rockで、1台のScramblerさんのtie rodが壊れちゃった😱 どうやってリカバリーするのか興味あったのでSexyJeepは見に行こうとした。 しかし! 斜めな岩に駐車してドア開けたもんだから勢いよすぎて、 Rubiのドアのストラップのところ?が壊れましたです…( ;∀;) トレイルの難易度とは全く無関係にドアは壊れた… ドジとしか言いようがない… ってことで、AZ方面に帰る前に、修理です。 #セクシージープ  #ジープトリップ  #オフローディング  #4WD  #モアブ  # ジープ  #sexyjeep #easterjeepsafari #ejs2019 #hotelrock #offroading #femaledriver #broken #moab #bearsears #rr4w

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you -- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.” Edward Abbey 🌵 I’m hoping Barley and I can get some time out in the red desert of Utah in a month or two before I head to Montana to report for duty at @workingdogsforconservation. Any of you guys in Wisconsin, Colorado, Utah, or Montana? We should meet up! 🤗 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 🐾 #desertdogs #livelifeoffleash #bordercolliesofinsta #dogsoutside #dogsthathike #hikingwithdogs #dogsofthedesert #utahdogs #indiancreek #bearsears #offleashlife #offleashdogs #bordercolliesofinsta #bordercollielovers #redrocks #dogsofutah #bestwoof #outdoordog #thegreatoutdogs

In 2017, President Trump announced plans for the largest reduction of protected, public lands in the history of the United States. The move would illegally reduce the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments by just under 2 million acres altogether by way of selling the beautiful landscapes at pennies on the dollar to corporations and other deep pocketed businessmen. In response, many outdoor brands posted responses on their sites condemning the act. The most serious of which being Patagonia, who completely blacked out their online retail presence for 24 hours with this slogan posted in replacement of their normal website. In addition, this denim jacket lined with their iconic synchilla fleece was made and given to select members of Patagonia's employees. This is the only denim jacket I've ever found made by the brand, outside of a single other example posted by a high end vintage boutique based in China ( #IfYouKnowYouKnow). Love or hate Trump, I will forever resent him for this move alone, at a time when we must be protecting as of this beautiful planet as possible. • Happy Earth Day🌎🌎🌎

The ending of an all too quick two days of mental reset with canyons, desert varnish, cottonwoods, spring flowers, and wading through muddy water. It is an odd sensation to spend the better part of a couple of days confined to the whims of canyons only to emerge to an open landscape.

Nature’s Cathedrals: I made a personal quest back to the homeland. I prayed for those who couldn’t today and left offerings. I could feel the loneliness subsided. So much hurt in the world... I stood at sunset united with hundreds of locals and foreigners at Monument Valley. We all marveled at the pink and purple sky—there was a wonderful moment of peace. It was perfect for this day of Easter. I didn’t photograph it with my “real,” camera. But I did capture it with my heart. There’s times when I go out, to reflect, to find myself, and to recoup. Nature has a special way of healing—the hurts of the world. Here’s what I felt today and my gift to you. The holy lands of Bears Ears and Monument Valley. Blessings to you all! It was a great day for iPhone fun.

Easter is derived from an Anglo-Saxon word: Eostre, goddness of spring or renewal. The Goddess was honored by a feast celebrated on the spring equinox. The spring festival celebrated the idea of nature coming to life again after the winter chill. This date changed slightly with the spread of Christianity at the Council of Nicaea 325 AD, which determined that Easter be associated with Christ’s resurrection and celebrated the Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox. The spring equinox marks the moment when the sun crosses the celestial equator on the earth as it moves northward. This means both day and night are of equal length- thus equinox. The equinox has been celebrated across the world throughout recordable history- and inspired landscapes. One of these historic Equinox-Inspired landscapes includes an ancestral pueblo habitation in our backyard- Hovenweep in Colorado- part of the cave dweller system that runs through southern Utah and Western Colorado. Hovenweep was built over 10,000 years ago and is believed to be a solar observatory, and had ports to track the sun’s movement, particularly important events, such as the spring equinox. Pictured beside Hovenweep is a traditional Ancestral Puebloan Kiva in Bears Ears, as well as surrounding endangered Bear’s Ears landscapes.

‘Top of the World’ views here at Muley Point in Bears Ears National Monument! Can you see my truck in the first picture upper lefthand corner? This cliff drops straight off down to the start of the Glen Canyon Recreation Area and the views go on forever. For those of you unfamiliar with Glen Canyon, it’s basically the starting point of canyons which become the Grand Canyon. The views into Monument Valley from camp are incredible! @down2mob_overland I camped at the site next to the one where we were. I’ll never grow tired of these views! #muleypoint #bearsears #preserve #conserve #protect #nature #publicland

This was so special because Ahjani Yepa from Jemez Pueblo was there sharing her wisdom and memory of helping the deities size her feet as a little girl.

Mule Canyon Towers. As I took this iphone picture I heard a faint rattle sound at my feet. Yikes, the sound was coming from a small snake sunning on the rocks. I had set my camera tripod leg a little too close for his comfort while I took this phone snap.

This landscape messes with your mind. Fun with photos from Miley Point overlooking the San Juan River canyon in UT. One of the many cool places we’ll be going on Bruce Barnbaum’s Bear’s Ears workshop for which I’m one of the co-instructors. Want to come along?

Cedar Mesa. Bears Ears. Grand Gulch. Fish and Owl canyons. Ruins, arches, red rock, sand and solitude. A week with Oliver was pretty much the bees knees. . . . #bearsears #utah #backpacking #fishandowlcanyon #cedarmesa #ruins #hiking #desertsolitaire #canyoncountry #redrockcanyon #camping #mothersontime #springtimeinthedesert #arches #publiclands

One of the classics at the creek! The pics were taken from my last trip down there, you can't really tell, but it was snowing this day, and yes, I am wearing a wig:) Can't wait to get back there this Fall for some more splitters and campfires!
