The Alabama Hills & Other Adventures on Cali’s 395.

The contrast between the Alabama Hills, and the eastern escarpment of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains is something to behold. Below; smooth, earth tones abound, as stacks of monzogranite boulders lay scattered in all directions. Above; a sharp, blue wall of glowing granite, with Mt. Whitney serving as the highest spear tip. Tucked into the labyrinth, hide natural arches. The best part, it’s just one stop on the outdoor playground that is, California’s HW395!

Room for Adventure: Iceland’s Southern Coast

Ironically, in a place where a stable government had been established by 930AD, the human footprint on Iceland feels so- temporary. Maybe it’s the lack of buildings over two stories tall, or that towns seem to be placed based off of good ideas two thousand years ago. In the relative youth of the land, Earth’s primordial state can be seen, where humans are still only renting their space on the land.

World Class Adventure: On Top of the Drakensberg Amphitheater

Where else in the world can you climb a chain ladder, bolted into a vertical, basalt rock face, starting in one country and ending in another? Where in Africa can you dip you bottle directly into the river and drink deeply without purification? Where else can you have a 4,000 foot cliff to yourself, to watch world class sunsets and sunrises? Atop the High Drakensberg, in the alpine nation of Lesotho, endless adventure awaits, you just need to choose your path!

Lower Drakensberg Grasslands, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Under the shadow of the Wall of Spears, Dragon Mountains, or Drakensberg, the alpine grasslands ebb and flow like the bushveld so commonly found there. Wildlife abounds in the big sky country of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and the night sky is one of the most dazzling that can be found on Earth.

This gallery is a series of shots from the Drakensberg lowlands around the area in which I lived for three months. The nearest towns would be Winterton or Bergville, but most of my time was spent in the bush or in unmarked farmland. Enjoy.
