I recently completed the 800+ mile Arizona Trail, bringing me through some of the most fantastic wild areas that Arizona has to offer. I was able to hike the trail after successfully raising enough funds through a crowdfunding campaign, which was helped by the fact that I’ll be donating photos to the Arizona Trail Association to help them better protect the scenic resources along the trail from threats such as mining. I will also be donating any unused difference in the funds raised back to them as well. The trail itself exceeded every expectation I could have had and gave me an indescribably amazing experience that I would love to continue to explore. I am currently still editing all of the photos, but watch this page for plenty of new photos that will be pouring in from the trail, and many other areas I was able to enjoy on the way to and from the trail. In the meantime, you can read the the blog posts from the Arizona Trail, each of which has a minimally processed photo that was taken from that day’s hike.
One of the most amazing natural wonders in the world, the Grand Canyon, cutting through the Kaibab Plateau, is a remarkable feat of natural erosion that cannot be replicated in any photograph or artwork, thus providing an endless amount of opportunities for artists of all fields to continue to try. It's a treasure of northern Arizona and should be something everyone sees at some point in their life.
