I added some aerial photos to the Oakland Mine. They come courtesy of my friends over at ProAerial Media.

I started using Patreon to support this site. Please see my Support page on Patreon. What is Patreon you ask?

My goal is to make my site sustainable: I’ve had it up for more than two decades. It has hundreds of trips, over ten thousand photos, and thousands of hours of work put into it. 

I’ve always wanted to write a guidebook but the remote backcountry places I like to go and the various regions I cover always made it too hard to put into any single book. And some areas only have a few trips while others have hundreds. 

These factors always made authoring a book or a series of books difficult. It is still something I think about but haven’t tackled yet. lets me bring my photos and research to you directly. In a few separate ways it is superior to a book: It allows me to post thousands of photos (where a book would only allow a few photos), I can add new trips daily (instead of waiting a year for a book to be published), and I can edit it as I discover new information. 

It’s not, however, sustainable without your help. 

I’ve toyed with putting ads on the site, but they never produced much money and YouTube isn’t my thing. I’ve thought about doing eBooks but, again, some of them would only have a few trips while others would have a ton. Also, they would have a delay in updating versus having a website. 

So, I’m continuing with my site for now. 

If you find it useful, please consider supporting my work and see what benefits you can get. Your help means I can keep sharing these places with you. Thank you!


I have a page that shows the posts that have directions.
