Yuki Puky!

It’s a good thing we kept our snorkel on our way home from Thailand, because we’re neck deep in Yuki over here on this ten day Japan layover. Yuki means snow and there’s a lot of it. Niseko, on the north island of Hokkaido, is delivering storm after storm and we’re sampling the early-season goods with nearly 300cm of snow falling so far this week, and counting. Thanks to our old and new friends here in Niseko for helping us make this one of the best family vacations ever. Pinch me!

Bhutan

What can I say- Bhutan. I’m still not grounded from this trip- might never be- and haven’t had a chance to review most of my images from a ten day dream to the Land of the Thunder Dragon, with ROAM Adventures. I’ll make sure I put together a slideshow as soon as possible. Stand by!

Thailand revisited

image

Coincidental to a few other forays, the family and I set based in Thailand for November, repeating a (child-free) sojourn that we did in ‘09. For good reason- this Asian hotspot has a lot to offer the traveler, food lover or rock climber. We did a lot of moving around, eating and climbing- based, where else but at Railay beach near Krabi. We also sampled Koh Samui and returned to Chiang Mai in the north for some more climbing and yes, eating. Casey loved it, despite eating what we thought was a poisonous plant at one point, necessitating a rushed boat trip to the hospital. But he had us back at the crag within an hour after the false alarm. It’s a different reality for the traveling photographer with an 8 month old but in terms of adventure it doesn’t really get any better. Thanks to Tai, Kelly, Tuula, Brian, Ashley, Andrew, Lisa, Zola, and of course Amy for making Casey’s trip such a good one. Here is yet another sunset at Railay beach. Not pictured are the Beer Changs and Pad Thais.

Icefall Lodge

image

Here is a multimedia edit of a trip to the magical Icefall Lodge last season. If you end up with a week of free time just book your trip. Owner and guide Larry Dolecki will make sure you ski or climb until your heart’s delight, or until it gives out. I can say last February’s visit was the best eight days of skiing of my life. Thanks to Dean Wagner for some of the sick ski footage.
