Hueco 1

  Finally escaped work for a few weeks.

The kitchen at The Corner Office Restaurant and Martini Bar in Denver, CO is my new home away from home. At least for around 40 hours a week. Serving global comfort food, I get the chance to work first hand with a lot of great food and chefs who have been in the industry for a long time..

Enough kitchen talk for now though.

On Tuesday I met up with Brion Voges and we began the 20+ hour drive from Chattanooga, TN to Hueco Tanks. Driving for a long period of time is something I have gotten used to over the last few years, and it's not so bad once you just get in the car and go..

After driving through the night we pulled up to the gate at Hueco around 8am and found ourselves waiting in line for a couple of hours until we got access into the park and to North Mountain!! With only a few hours of sleep in the last 30, needless to say we were both tired. We decided to climb anyway. I'll save the details of our short session, by just saying that not much went down. That didn't matter though; psyche was and is high.

We will be here for another 10 days and both of us have new camera gear.. keep an eye out for plenty of pictures here and at Brion's page (brionvoges.tumblr.com)

Video coming out in the next month or so.

A few screen shots : : :

More on the way..
