I just wrote my first blog for the Daily Camera on November’s installation of Green Drinks, an evening of sustainable social networking that takes place once a month at various drinking establishments around town. It was a blast, I met tons of interesting people doing very inspiring green things in Boulder and got to write about them. Check it out on the Daily Camera’s web site!
I just wrote a Viewfinder on Celin Serbo, an amazing adventure photographer based in Boulder, CO. Check it out on VentureThere.com!
If you’re a climber, winter can really suck. Even for the mlldly-addicted, the short cold days provide perfectly frustrating opportunities to fantasize about climbing on real rock in the sun. For most climbers, winter usually means at least one of the following: A. Time to distract yourself with other sports, like ice climbing, which, let’s face it, is just not the same. B. Some serious gym time. When the sun sets at 4:30, it’s time to spring for a gym membership, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and often it’s a necessity for staying sane. Gyms are big play grounds that keep you in shape for spring so you can send when the warmer weather hits. C. Time to buy a plane ticket. Think Thailand, Greece, Hueco Tanks, St. George, Vegas, really anywhere there’s sunny, dry rock. Consider those options, and in the meantime, there’s the Climbing Winter Lust List, which features the latest lust-worthy gear from harnesses to headlamps, and everything in between. All the equipment you’ll need to fuel your winter gym sessions, your next climbing vacation, or satisfy your inner gear-aholic.
Not much to say here, just posting some random photos, mostly from Montana.

Who knew it would be considerably easier to find fashionably dressed men than women in Boulder? (at least at 1:00 on Thursday afternoon on Pearl Street)
We’d barely crossed Pearl Street when we spotted our first fashionable candidates stepping out of the always trendy Laughing Goat Café. We easily spotted the Member’s Only jacket from our vantage across the street, chased them down and asked to take their picture. We never thought to consider the possibility that someone might say no, but sure enough, straight out of the gates with our fledgling idea (said idea being the street style blog you are currently reading), and all we got was a resounding no. We stared at our fashionable friends, speechless. Wait. This is Boulder, land of the coffee shop and the bicycle commute. What did they mean they didn’t have time for a two-minute photo shoot? Had we suddenly been transported to New York? But no. The sun was out and someone in spandex whizzed by on an $8000 road bike. Definitely Boulder. Huh. Strange. Read more…
In 2004, Jonny Copp got an idea. Snow and tent-bound for days in the high Himalayas, I’m sure he had lots of ideas. But this one stuck, an international film festival to celebrate alpinism, adventure, and the environment, all things Jonny loved. Read the rest of the story. Read more…
