    Hey Josh – You’ve got some awesome Sierra backcountry shots. With all due respect, please reflect on leaving location specifics. Many of these places are still relatively pristine and we need to keep them that way!

      Hi Dave,

      Thanks so much for the kind words. I hear what you’re saying about keeping location specifics to a minimum. And I agree with you 100% about front country destinations that are getting trampled. Promotion online is certainly causing many easy-to-access areas to become over-visited and damaged. However, so far in my experience in the backcountry, people who are willing to put in the effort to visit these sacred places are respectful and appropriately reverent. I could be wrong but the optimist in me says that if someone is willing to get to these remote spots they will treat them as they should be.
