Greg and Stephanie Stahl watching the sun go down in Joshua Tree - California
Photographer Note: When a climbing crash pad seems like a hotel room, you know you've been around the block. It's not about nice clothes, ordering room service, driving a flashy car or an elaborate job title. It comes down to being around people who can turn an idea into reality based purely on life experience. The amount of money funding a project becomes only a minor detail.

Photographer Note: The roads were bad the year I took this photograph. Fixing a flat is a minor repair but if something goes wrong you are dead in the water. We tend to crack jokes until the problem is solved. As soon as the problems start happening the camera starts rolling.
Curtis Major and I battling it out with a stack of 52 and a couple brews- Yosemite, California
Photographer Note: You know a place is special when people travel from all over the world to see it, but it's a little much during peak season. There are so many people buzzing around that you feel like you are playing cards in a Las Vegas casino. Major and I chose to turn up the raggae music to drown out the commotion.
