You take such amazing pictures!!! You inspire me to go travel where you have been because you have captured the beauty of each places you have been to!! I am an amateur photographer and definitely loves taking landscape shots and like you, of course wants to tag my family of 3 along. We are also amateur hikers and we have so much to learn, but thanks to people like you who shares what they know-- we are slowly getting there. May I ask what camera you've been using and what software you use to edit? Thank you so very much again!!
Thank you for sharing your holiday. I have just read your trip in the southwest as we are planning a trip there later this month and I am still doing research. We leave New Zealand at the end of the week and visit family in NY before heading to Phoenix and driving all through the area for 16 days. Thanks again it's been very informative and I wish I had found it earlier but it's not too late
Planning a trip to Torres del Paine in Chile and Los Glaciares in Argentina.Your photos of these beautiful parks are stunning. Thanks for sharing them.
Thanks for sharing such nice adventures. I am planning a last minute adventure to the Dolomites and was looking around the internet and came across your post. It's great to see such awesome adventures.
The info and pictures are amazing.I live in Vegas so have visited most of the southwest areas but I have learned a few new places from your trip ,didnt know about water hole or coal mine thanks!
Wonderful pictures and narratives. Thank you so much!! Really enjoyed the hiking and slot canyon sets. You guys are pros!!
Nice photo of the arch on Corkscrew. I am wondering if it is possible to hike to this arch in early February and which trailhead (directions please) provides the best access? Thanks for sharing, Rob of the WV, see wildernessvagabond.com

Steve, Kathy and Norah,
What a wonderful year you have had. Thanks so much for sharing it with all. Sorry that I missed the Cooke City trip this year. I am doing quite well now. Always next year.
Your photos are the BEST, an inspiration to everyone.
I come back and look at your travels quite often.

Steve, Kathy, and Norah,
Great photos of your trip. I thank you for the lift at the trail head.
The older gentleman.
hello, I read a post you did some time ago about cats and hiking... Well i have one that climbs, hikes , snow-skis, canoes, and rides on my back when I ride a bike. No b/s... She ( Lexi ) loves it and also likes dogs. I have some pics on myspace.
Eric Sorensen, Lacy wa. enjoy LOL
sorry, forgot to add my e-mail.
Steve , a group of us are hiking the Crazy 8 6/10. Did you find places between Haystack and Gothics for water?
Hi thanks for allowing us to view your travels the images are flat out wonderful.What is equally wonderful and way cool is your take your little girl along.
You folks have your heads screwed on right and it a world full of A holes its uplifts my spirit to see that.
WOW! Absolutely incredible photos. I have a question... I'm a flatlander from OK planning a trip with my sons and some friends up Elk Creek to Vestal Basin and over the saddle between Vestal and W. Trinity Peaks to Balsam Lake. I was told by a ranger that the saddle was not a technical climb - just very hard. We have absolutely no climbing skills, just a lot of determination to hike up steep hills that don't require ropes. Can you tell me how technical that saddle is.
If I had to comment on each picture in your galleries that took my breath away I would be typing away deep into the night. Inspiring, stunning and breathtaking, well done!!
Great photo's!! I fell in love with the Tetons many years ago. My wife made her first ever trek out there last summer with me. Not only was this her first trip to the Tetons, but her first backpacking trip as well. This will become an annual trip for both of us. Never thought about any climbing, only backpacking. Anyway......thanks for sharing.
Man this album is killing me! ;) Accelerating my daydreaming of getting back out in nature tenfold. Very nice photography. I'm very jealous of all the places you've been. If you're ever lacking people on a trip out west, you can count me in. hahha.
Thank you very much for the record of your climbs on Cube Point and the Grand. I did those two peaks in 1960 and 1962, respectively, with Exum guides Jake Brietenbach and Barry Corbet. I was all of 13 and 15, and even now I recall with tremendous pleasure the climbs, the 4:00 a.m. start from the lower saddle, the warmth of the hanging canyon below Cube. Anyway, all my photos have gone missing, so your will do beautifully. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Steve and Kathy, as an avid hiker, I truly love your awesome photos. My husband and I have hiked many of the same places, but there are some that we haven't yet experienced. So we're wondering, is there an e-mail where we can write and ask you some questions? Sincere thanks. Stormie
I was very happy to come across your site having hiked the Teton Crest Trail for the 2nd time in 23 years this past summer. You have great photographs. I have family up there so I've been doing a lot in the surrounding mountains for over 30 years. I've wanted to write about that area for sometime and might ask your permission to use a photograph...or all of them. They're awesome. Thank you for a fine memory,
Kathy and Steve,
My husband and I just came back from a trip to Yosemite (our 10 year anniv.) We have been several times with the kids, but not alone--it was so great. I am writing, because we did the Yosemite Falls trail and I of course forgot my camera. I was hoping for a great photo from the top of the falls (where the pools are looking over the edge) Any thoughts on where I could get that--thought about making it a present for the actual anniversary--
Hi. I am desperately trying to find the telephone number of Refuge les Grands to book two nights, and the number I have from the Cicerone guide is wrong. Do you have a number? if so, please send to my e-mail address. my address is: email@example.com Thanks, Hannah Manne, Israel

i have visited pbase.com, this site is very interesting, because there is a large database for pictures of the world as compare to other sites.
Kathy and Steve,
HI! This is your long lost cousin from IOWA! I have been poking around your website and WOW! what wonderful trips and places you have been.
It looks like you had a great time in New Zealand, I am hoping to get there someday.
If you get a chance, send me your email address and I will share some of my recent trips. I just got back from Monterrey Mexico. My future trips include Brazil, Bejing, and Zweibruken Germany. Although I won't have as much time to spend on leisure, I hope to visit some beautiful places while there.
Keep up the world traveling,
Your (a little bit envious) Cousin,
Great pics..Really like the Glacier pics. Ive been wanting to get out there for a while. Great job with your site.
We like you - you are FUN!
I am not a registered Backpacker forum user (because I amnoit sure I want all the junk maiul that sure to follow) but I did see in one of the threads that you hiked the Canyon last Thaksgiving. My family is going to do that this Thanksgiving, staying as you did at Phantom and Indian Gardens and you would seem a great source of knowledge. Can I ask you a couple of questions:
We are Easterners (Virignia). Two 50 year old parents and their 13 & 14 year old kids.
1) Other than right at the top, does it ever really get cold in the
Canyon? My wife has read the possible temperature ranges posted by
the Park Service and wants to bring all sorts of semi-cold weather
gear and since I carry a lot of the load I want to make sure it is
necessary. Seems hard to belive it could ever get cold, although I
have only been there in the summer.
2) Is there any particular place within the two campgrounds we should
try and camp - perhaps farther away from the crowds - if there are
crowds - or anything we should be sure and see or do when there?
3) Anything else you think we should know?
Just thinking about this trip and thought I'd ask for advice from
anyone who's done it before. We are really looking forward to it. I am not sure whether you will see this or how you can respond to it but I thought I'd give it a try.
