GlacierLife is a blog devoted to bringing you the highest quality content on the latest  tech/gear, trail reviews/guides, and lifestyle choices for mountain athletes. Through my stories, lessons, and thoughts of outdoor adventures, I hope to pass along knowledge so you can save yourself any heartaches I may have endured!


My name is Don. I’ve been drawn to the outdoors ever since I was young. I enjoy exploring new places and capturing both the story and imagery whenever possible. I have had adventures all around the world – from Dubai and S. Korea to Belgium and Colombia. So long as the adventure is there I’ll take it!

I recently moved up to Montana. Outdoor activities flow here like wine from a bottle. There are boundless opportunities to find something to do! Because of this, I felt it would be a good idea to launch this blog – and hopefully share experiences so other people can learn from my pitfalls.

My adventures will include Hiking, Mountaineering, Mountain Biking, and Skiing.

The playgrounds for these activities are vast and varied, but long over the course of my life I’ve had them take place in National Parks. As these places engraved a place in my memories and heart, I find more and more I’m drawn back. Due to this reason, I’ve launched a product line with the manta 2% to Protect! This is designed to help donate proceeds to the many parks and outdoor preservation societies so YOU, AND THE GENERATIONS TO COME, can continue to use these awe inspiring locations. Teddy Roosevelt once said “There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness, that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy, and its charm.” As I believe many people can relate to this, I feel it necessary to help protect these places.
