I’m Grizzly Adam. I live in Utah, and like to play in the nearby mountains. I have 5 kids, and a very patient wife. I love to write. I especially love to write about playing in the mountains.

This blog is an attempt to explore the emotions and the experiences underlying outdoor sports – specifically endurance mountain biking and backcountry skiing. I seek to learn what it is that presses an individual to push beyond the mental and physical limits of what society deems normal and acceptable.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, I write my thoughts and observations about what Edward Abbey called the “mythical and the tangible”.

I also share photos from my adventures. Living along the Wasatch Front in Utah grants me untold opportunities to mountain bike, hike, backcountry ski and explore a vast wilderness.  The mysterious and splendid deserts of Moab, and the barren red rock of Saint George are also within my grasp. I live in an outdoor paradise.

Thanks for visiting. Stick around, browse the archives, and come back often.
