and improved site is now on - line! For this revision, I've tried to keep things as streamlined as I could. The goal is content, and the hope is for as little rambling as possible.
Navigation... The top left corner is reserved for the Topics Menu. Written content is broken into categories and you can find it by clicking what seems interesting to you in the 'concepts' menu on the lower left. It's a pretty visual site as far as photos go, so it made sense to have things arranged in this 'text on demand' sort of format.
From a technical and design point of view, I'm pretty stoked on this revision. I optimized the look to fit the typical 1024x768 screen, you might need to zoom out if you have smaller screen sizes (Ctrl)with '+' is zoom in or Ctrl with '-' is zoom out.
called a challenge for a reason, and everything that wraps itself into mountain sport adds up to this challenge. Again and again folks go to the mountains to see what they might find -in themselves or in others. Usually people find that they can do more than they ever dreamed. One of the keys to this finding someone who you can work with, and that where your guides enters the picture. As a mentor, a consultant, and a friend, we can help you to reach your potential.
the first time I made the front page of my own website! Wow, it's a bit odd to be going viral like this... I wonder how many hits I'll get?
So, just a quick bit about me... I base out of Jackson Wyoming, live in a yurt, guide rock climbing, summer / winter alpine climbing, and ski mountaineering trips. I was formerly trained as a microbiologist and chemist, and am fully certified by the American Mountain Guides Association in all disciplines (there are less than 100 of us in the USA...). I am also a member of the IFMGA which is an international guides federation.
of this stuff could happen without these folks! The nature of guiding in the USA is that various guide services are permitted to work on public lands. Guide services do a lot of work, from maintaining resources to covering insurance. The Guide services I work for and with, are what sets the stage for a quality professional experience. Check them out on line and you'll see even more ideas and options for trips.
