Pretty solid way to start the day. And the season for that matter. Thanks for getting me out, @s.roy333!

[UT 1:6] An ode to the desert | Hearing about @ortizje and @julieortiz1830’s recent trip to Utah got me reminiscing about magical desert landscapes – like the obvious splendor of the Main Canyon in Zion NP. ⠀

[UT 2:6] But I think the real magic of the desert are the surprises hiding in plain sight if you have the opportunity to look a little closer, like the secrets hiding within this seemingly uninteresting landscape. ⠀

[UT 3:6; vertical pano – top; zoom out for full view] Hiding within that unassuming landscape are a couple gulches – Spooky and Peek-a-boo – that together may have been the most incredible place I’ve ever explored. ⠀

[UT 4:6] Amazingly – to me – these epic landscapes all exist as they do today because of the interplay between rock and water, whether it be the meticulous carving of a perennial river, the old master, like the Virgin carving out Zion’s Main Canyon here, (cont. on next photo)⠀

[UT 5:6] (cont. from previous photo) or the violent – but equally as beautiful – work of flash floods, the young, wild apprentice.⠀

[UT 6:6; vertical pano – bottom; zoom out for full view] Working on different scales, and probably to the master’s disgruntled dismay, the young, wild apprentice and the old master end up at the same amazing end goals | An ode to the desert. ⠀

On the topic of spiders, here’s a far more aesthetically pleasing (those abdominal colors though!!) photo of an orchard orb-weaver (@ortizje, can you be my spidey expert phone a friend on this one?) chowin’ down on some sort of fly streamside in CT a couple years back. One of my favorites from a summer with CTDEEP.⠀

As the one of the unofficial Halloween mascots, I thought I’d share a photo of a spooky spider - the garden orb-weaver here - setting up shop in a pretty big way many years ago before I apparently figured out how to use a flash that didn’t wash out my subject. Spider was probaby ~1.5" across or so, for reference.⠀

Sure has been raining a whole bunch lately. Here’s a raindrop splattering circa 2013. I wonder where this little droplet is now.⠀

Green River was a little chilly yesterday, but finding a couple dozen white suckers (and some brown trout and a bluegill) hiding under this corn jam (log jam x corn stalks) was totally epic. File this under things you don't see everyday. Thanks for the guiding, @jcarmignani11 and stoked we were finally able to get out @anoelle1227!

Through the roof hyped on watching @kaayykayyy rip up some routes at the gym last night. A little salty she got up twice as fast as I did, but I’ve still got more technical routes under my belt, so it’s okay. Otherwise super proud moment watching her tie herself in and race up the wall.⠀

Holy heckin shit! Best closeup and longest I’ve ever been able to observe a #prayingmantis yesterday 🐉 I’ve thought these invertebrate #ninjas and master predators were the coolest since learning about them in 4th grade. Fun fact, despite being introduced from Europe, they (European mantis, specifically) are the state insect of the home state. CT knows how to pick em.

@s.roy333 and I found a new climbing spot the other day and gotta say it was pretty nice to top out a cliff with a view. Add a bit of color to them there valley trees and some stupidly warm weather, and we had outselves a pretty good spot for some post-climb Rainies.⠀

Stoked to have finally caught the classic fall morning this season - warm water, cold air, steam fog and sun rising, leaves changing... it was a good way to start the day

Happy 45th birthday to the Clean Water Act. Thanks to the political homies of the 70s for recognizing that a river catching fire probably wasn’t mellow and should be addressed in some way. Grateful for their foresight and the beautiful waterways, clean drinking water, and ecologically healthy aquatic communities we’re able to enjoy today as a result. Here’s to some wishful thinking, while we’re on the topic, that the powers that be are unable to completely undermine these regulations and we’re still able to enjoy our freshwater for years to come. ⠀
