New Year’s Eve + Timelapse Video + Times Square = The Best Travel Video Of 2014 So Far

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Where were you on New Year’s Eve? I’m going to guess you probably weren’t hanging around the tops of a couple New York city skyscrapers in Times Square with enough expensive camera equipment in tow to finance the purchase of a small home in Boca Raton. Lucky for you, The Timelapse Group was, and they […]

Turning Points: A Dispatch From The End Of The Country

Sunday, January 5, 2014

In the days preceding winter solstice, the sky enshrouding Barrow, Alaska, is a hue somewhere between mineral pitch and squid ink. And the skyline stays that way for all of a handful of minutes when it winnows a degree or two lighter, the barest luminescence along the horizon, like the last gasps of cathode ray […]

The Australian Coffee Invasion Has Begun In New York

Monday, November 18, 2013

Apparently, if an Australian gives your city the thumbs up for being up on the coffee culture, you have succeeded. You see, you may not have known it, but the Australians are actually java connoisseurs, something I learned while reading this recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald, which shows caffeine fanatics where to look in New […]

10 Gorgeous Photos From My Trip To Telluride

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Some say the remote mountain town of Telluride earned its name from the phrase, “To Hell You Ride.” Well, if this is Hell, I better start sinning. About seven hours from Denver, Telluride is nestled into the fourteener-heavy San Juan Mountain range. The mountains are believed to be much younger than the Rockies, and haven’t […]

The Empire State Building Goes Vegas With New Light Show

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Visitors to New York City this holiday season will get the first chance to see the new light show that is The Empire State Building. Once home to stodgy monochrome lights that changed every week or so to reflect the time of the year (or a Giants Super Bowl win), the building has now upgraded […]

The Big Chill In Big Sky Country

Monday, November 5, 2012

We made our way to Whitefish, Montana, by flying into Calgary, Alberta. Sean and I met early on the El tracks in Chicago. It was 6 a.m. and 95 degrees out, and the drops of sweat were starting to make a lovely little scene beneath the armpits of my gray, cotton shirt. My new puppy […]

What It Looks Like To Paddle Down The Mississippi [Time Lapse Video]

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

The guys over at InTransit.tvtook to the waters of the Mississippi with a canoe to take this time lapse video of their trip down the entire 2,300 miles of the river. As a point of reference, a raindrop falling into Lake Itasca in north central Minnesota would arrive at the Gulf of Mexico in about […]

Time To Rejoice, Arapahoe Basin Is Open

Thursday, October 18, 2012

It’s what every ski nut waits for. After the biking. After the hiking. After the fourteeners. After the sailing. These summer activities, while fun, have really only been holding place for the addictive sport of the winter season: skiing. Wax your skis and polish your goggles, because the Colorado ski season is officially open. Well, […]

How I Found Colorado Atop Crestone Needle

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

It was Thursday morning and my cell phone lit up. I had a text. “Look up Crestone Needle and let me know if you have the balls for that one.” It was from my climbing friend Nick. I typed “14ers.com” into my browser — the go-to website for all things pertaining to Colorado’s storied fourteeners […]

Hiking Through The Past In Kauai

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Day two of our mini-adventure was not off to a good start. Megan’s hiking boots were soaked and covered in the pasty red sludge that had become the Kalalau Trail. My declarations to “look at the view” were met with, “just stop talking to me for 30 minutes and I will try to pull myself […]
