Utah Wilderness Bliss

Four days, three nights. Five beautiful women. One incredible trail. We turned off our cell phones, put our jobs on hold, and ventured into the wild canyons of Utah with everything we needed to survive strapped to our backs. Its difficult to put into words how truly amazing it is to disconnect from the routine and distractions of modern daily life, and embark on a journey into the wilderness with…

Nicaragua

I spent half of my time on the Pacific coast, on Playa Maderas, an epic hot spot for backpackers, surfers and yogis.
