Scouting in the Zirkel Wilderness: Part 2

After our last scouting trip up to the Zirkels ended with finding the perfect location we decided to go back with some surveying gear to confirm that all of the angles and headings were correct. As always we brought some friends to be sherpas and did a little bit of shooting for Mika Yoga Wear along the way.

That bokeh on the Canon 35mm SSC is just ridiculous.

Dancing In A Fantasy

Every year for our anniversary we try to go somewhere “new”. That can be close to home or it can be far but it has to be somewhere neither of us have experienced. Kaydee wasn’t very happy when I told her we were going to Vernal, Utah this year! But a little bit of alpine caving, some desert sun and a landscape straight from the set of Mars quickly changed her mind.

Scouting Big Agnes Peak

 

We routinely drag our friends into the wilderness in search of new locations for upcoming shoots or when we could use some sherpas to carry extra gear. Sometime things work out and we find amazing things, sometimes it really doesn’t and we end up soaked but stoked to be out anyhow. In looking for a new location to shoot some mountain Aerial Dance stuff we went back to a place that has some special meaning to me as it was my extended back yard growing up.

The Zirkel Wilderness area is 159,935 acres of pristine wilderness just outside of Steamboat Springs, CO. It’s the site of the high point of Routt County (Mt. Zirkel) and one of my favaorite places in the lower 48.

One of my favorite things about the Zirkel Widlerness is the amount of water (and fish). Creeks and lakes everywhere!
