By and large... Montana.
My kids and the places we explore.
Water, canoes, rafting, camping, woods, hunting and fishing.
Night.

All Images are by me.
Most are works-in-progress... first drafts. This is a sort of cross-section of my life. A collection of artwork and snapshot from the day-to-day activity.

Answers to frequently asked questions:

I do like apples and making hard cider out of them.
I am distantly related to John Chapman.
I like Scottish music... like Mogwai.

Thanks for stopping by....

Gratuitous grilling photos. Summer nights in Montana are hard to beat. Cool enough for a fire and warm sunsets from burning forest.

Grilled onions, scallions, peppers, shallots, mushrooms, corn, potatoes in foil, and bear/buffalo sausage.

The Remington1816 cookbook is full of great ideas for cooking over a fire or with cast iron. It’s full of vintage imagery and great photographs. Nothing taste better than cooking outdoors.

Utensils made by the guy holding them. James Behring of behringmade on tumblr. They are awesome!

Stopped by the #sanborncanoe shop on the way up to the lake. Their new beard oil is the goods! Smells lightly of cedar and birch. 
Thanks Zak!
