  1. Went through Utah last year during a cross country drive, and were totally blown away by the beauty of the place. And I see that you guys know how to make the most of the assets your home offers (sports and photography). Good for you! Anita

  2. Thanks Anita. I grew up in the midwest and east and after visiting this area for climbing and skiing I just had to move out. We’ve been out here for about 4 years now and it’s been great. We still haven’t seen 80% of the state, so lots more photos to come!

  3. Nate, I bet you’d love Smith Rock State Park in Oregon. Check out their website:

  4. Smith Rocks is an amazing place. I’ve been there a few times, but early in my photo taking. I really need to get back sometime soon.

  5. Hey!
    Your blog is super.
    Thank you for providing thought-provoking topics.

  6. Hi there! Checked out your blog after reading the comment you left in mine. Your photography is inspiring! I want to cheat and ask what gear you use before browsing all your older posts. Which I intend to do, but I just can’t stop wondering every time I see one of your photos. Looking forward to learning a lot from here!

  7. Have a nice day !

  8. Nate,
    I work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah and love the activities you’re doing with your Little. I’d like to use the photo on our website to show others activities they might want to do. I can link back to your website, give you copywrite credit, etc. Please contact me when you get a chance.

  9. Hi Nate,
    It would be awesome if you could let your readers know about this tournament in Paris if they happen to be traveling there this summer.
    Let me know if you think it might be doable. Let me know if you would like me to email you the information.

  10. nate,
    found your blog/site while searching images for idaho (congrats!) i was wondering if you might be able to spare a minute of your time to give me some advice… i also am an adventure traveler / aspiring photographer and have lived in vermont, san diego, and utah (ogden and sandy), and now DC. and its time for me to get back out of the city. i have narrowed my options down to boise and salt lake city (need to be back near mountains) i am always inspired by the beauty of utah – the mountains and the south – zion, moab, etc. i am very interested in boise, but not sure if i would find the natural surroundings as inspiring as that of utah. i already know the ski areas are incomparable, which is a big draw to utah. i need a little bit of city, but the outdoors is what im really there for. looks like you have spent some time in idaho as well. i have only been up to tamarack area once and that is it besides 1/2 day in boise. any thoughts/advice that you can offer would be greatly appreciated…. THANKS! courtney

    • Hi Courtney,

      Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your comment.  Things have been busy outside the photography world. 

      Unfortunately I do not know a huge amount about living in Boise.  However, I have really enjoyed Salt Lake.  I moved here from Baltimore, MD specifically for the mountains.  The close proximity of all the activities (climbing, biking and skiing) is really tough to beat.  It’s also nice that they are real mountains.  There is some terrain that is very exciting (sharp mountain peaks, massive vertical cliffs, etc).  My impression of Boise is that the hills are not as tall and much much drier.  Although SLC is pretty dry, you can escape to the mountains with the lush forests and rivers. 

      I also do enjoy having the ammenities of a larger city.  I think Boise could get pretty boring if you enjoy getting out for dinner, drinks, or other entertainment.

      Good luck!


  11. Hello Nate,

    Are any of these photos available for purchase? I’d love to buy digital versions of a couple pics from the 2008 Tour de Park City.
