The necessity to grow and explore is a constant in my life.

It is interesting how people tend to be drawn away from their home(s) when embarking on an adventure, desiring to explore elsewhere. Other parts of the world, other parts of their country. Humans rarely seize the opportunity of exploring their own back yard. I have been pedaling the trails and deactivated logging roads of Roberts Creek for more than 15 years, but have not spent much time exploring Port Mellon. Harrison invited me to join him in tending to his trail; documenting the upkeep and shooting his descent.
Life is also about learning. Tonight, for the first time (and hopefully the last), I deleted 200 raw images never that had the opportunity to be processed.
