Before I go on any trip I "yard sale" my gear for the task at hand. I had been camping in my van, fishing, riding my dirt bike and now was headed into the backcountry for a quick one-nighter high in the snow. After years of travel my system is getting dialed in to where I'm prepared to photograph almost any type of scenario.

Photographer Note: The crunch of ice axes and crampons echoed amongst the granite amphitheater as we climbed to basecamp. This is a spectacular place to explore and find solitude. There's nothing better than unzipping your tent door to this kind of backcountry in the morning.
