Ah, Yosemite. God’s Country, no doubt. Over the years, I’ve gone on many of the annual Bauer Resorts, International-sponsored weekend hikes in the eastern Sierras with my older brother and a posse of his oldest friends.

I made one too-brief trip to Bali just after that massive Christmas tsunami hit back in 2004. We almost cancelled the trip, for obvious reasons, but decided in the end it was better to go and do what we could while there. Incredible people, island, culture, arts and craft traditions. How have I not been back in 10 years?

South Africa–an amazing country I hope to return to before too long… Will try to add more photos soon.


Just a very few photographs from my journey years ago to Kyoto for some friends’ wedding there. What an amazing town!
