I try to go somewhere almost every weekend and most often my destination involves doing some hiking. My reasons for hiking as well as backpacking include experiencing the thrill of exploring new places, trying to capture the beauty of the area on film, spending time with friends and clearing my mind while exercising.
Other outdoor activies I have tried include the following: downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snorkeling, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, boating, parasailing, bicycling, inline skating, horseback riding, spelunking and bouldering.
I have selected photographs taken by me and others that I believe show something interesting about natural places I have visited. You can reload the page to view another pseudo-randomly chosen picture or you can select from the photo index.
