Fly FIshing, The Wind River Range

Every now and again, I am randomly contacted or by someone I know to either publish a photograph or two or to work on a project together, which is what happened a few years ago from my friend Chadd Vanzanten. Like  most of the projects I am contacted about, Chadd and I began talking about this long before bags (or shall I say backpacks) were packed, plans made, film was purchased, etc for a backpack trip that occurred in July of 2016.

But now, I am happy to announce that the book, On Fly Fishing, The Wind River Range, Essays and What not to Bring, is now available! 

I have seven photographs in the  book that accompany a couple of the essays that Chadd wrote that came from our backpacking and fishing trip that we made in July 2016.  

For your viewing pleasure I am posting two photographs from that trip, one that will be in the book and one that won't be.  

This was on the hike out to our base camp and was at a point that was around 10,800'.

The view at our base camp.

To see more and to find out which of these two photographs were in the book go and buy it.  Chadd's essays are great to read and there are several other photographs that his son did too.

It's been a while since I put anything out there, so I thought I'd post this photograph, a detail shot of tricked out Road King.

I remember seeing this bike in May I believe, at a local biker bar and it immediately caught my eye.  I was able to talk to its owner and took a few photographs of it, but this is  my favorite.
Turns out the owner, goes by "Sarge" is an Army Veteran and we even worked in the same MOS during our respective time in the Army.
You can see the other photograph I took of this gorgeous Road King and more on my Flickr stream, .
If you are on Flickr, look me up, I go by Red Holga Man 

Ride Safe!

People I ride with - PGR edition

When I was first started riding motorcycles, I remember meeting and talking to a woman at the local Harley dealer who told about her motorcycle experience and how she meet a lot of great people, had been to and seen new places, and other things all because she rode a motorcycle; looking back on that conversation, I can honestly say I have done that and more.

One of the things I have done, that has introduced me to many new people and has provided an opportunity to continue serving my fellow Veterans and their families was join an organization called Patriot Guard Riders or the PGR as we call it.   What is the PGR you ask?

The Patriot Guard Riders is a 100% Volunteer, Federally registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization which ensures dignity and respect at memorial services honoring Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and honorably discharged Veterans.”

I ride with the Utah Patriot Guard Riders and through it I have met a lot of great people like my brother Mike here.

 To everyone in the PGR, especially those here in Utah, I salute you.

Let's Ride!
