Letters for Bresha

15 year old Bresha Meadows faces life in prison for allegedly killing her abusive father. This was a panel to raise funds for her legal fees, to send and show support for Bresha, and to discuss the criminalization of women of color in situations of self defense. Thank you for allowing me to shoot this panel….

Get me out.

So despite the excitement of the past week and the selection of the new President, I was able to finish my Piolet. And in spite of the excitement of the past week, I needed to get the fuck out. So after work Dan, Josh, and I decided to do a night ride out to the hills and…

WAY BEHIND: Swift Campout 2016

Welp, I am far behind with updating on this adventure. For this years bike-camping trip for the Swift camp out we decided to ride from La Pine to Hole in the ground Oregon. This is the trip that made me decide that I need a dedicated camping machine, not a 350 single speed 29er that’s…

Fourth of July in the Valley

We went in search for the best place to watch the fourth of July fireworks in the Eugene area.  What we discovered was a beautiful vista of the Willamette Valley, and that fireworks from afar are not so awe-inspiring. Still so, so worth it. We also came across and shared a view with this beautiful hand…

Onward!

  Chelsea and I have decided to turn the blog into a straight up photography page for myself at this point. We were trying to figure out what to do with the site since we had finished the TAT more than a year ago! I will be posting photo essays and links to my Photography…

The End of the Trail: Oregon, the Pacific Neverland

Read the whole article in Oi Magazine. Link: The Pacific Neverland …We ride to the coast through the Rogue-Umpqua wilderness which passes us off to the Siskiyou forest, creating a nearly uninterrupted path of verdant Douglas firs and Jurassic ferns. The antithesis of its cardinal East side, Western Oregon is a lush temperate rain forest where…

Snow Painted Hills: Photos of middle Oregon in winter.

  We end up sleeping in a heavy snow pack outside of Hoodoo in the cascade Range. Dogs nice and toasty. First stop, Smith Rock. We reach the Painted hills just in time for sun down. We talk to a gentleman photographing the hills and he tells us this is the most snow he’s ever…

Live small, travel light, adventure big

We’re coming close to the final stages in the release of our book. It’s been a year since we finished the trip and we’ve held off on releasing the final blog post of the trip to keep with the release of an article about Oregon in Oi Magazine, and the shipping of the books so…

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to all of our readers and supporters! We will be spending them finishing out the book design and then disconnecting in the woods.   -Arrows West    

ExistExpire & DoubleShadow

Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings. – Robert Bloch During these past few weeks, a couple of our friends who are touring across the US on motorcycles came to visit us – oh, and did I mention that they don’t even…

Utah Part 1. Before the Storm

I’ve been having nightmares. I dreamt about circles of blood and feathers, about what would’ve happened if grizzlies found that delicious trap of blueberries and sausages, and about the apathetic and hostile faces of hunters who wanted us out. Rob said I kept mumbling in my sleep, something about “deep tracks, deep tracks.” Our last…

Colorado Part 1. Leroy and the Walking Y

As we crossed over the southern border of Colorado we saw a scraggly handwritten sign for “Farm Fresh Eggs” with an arrow pointing to someone’s home.  This is actually very common and fresh green eggs is one of Rob’s favorite things (Dr. Seuss anyone?)  We pulled up into the driveway of a ranch hand’s home…
