With a rechargeable battery, and mounts compatible with GoPro, smartphones & other cameras/camcorders.

About Joshua Riggins:
My name is Joshua Riggins. I’m a regular guy that lives in SLC, Utah. I have a job, a house and 2 awesome boys - Kemry 15 & Caelan 12. When I was 16 I started rock climbing and have been doing it off and on for the past 20 years. My love for everything outdoors is beyond comparison. I am what one might call a Renaissance Man when it comes to the outdoor life. Meaning, I do a little of everything. As with climbing, I enjoy Snowboarding, Hiking, Canyoneering, Mountain Biking and Camping. I recently got into back country touring and I’m looking at getting into Kayaking. I grew up with a love for the mountains, the earth and just getting outside. But recently discovered the desert and how amazing slot canyons can be.
This basically an account of my adventures and good times. With hopes of inspiring others to get outdoors, trying stuff and connect with the earth. I want to be an awakening for others to learn to live again. Illuminating the thought in their minds that they to can enjoy the travel and adventures I take pleasure in. To visually motivate people through picture and video. To follow my adventures, checkout my Instagram @JoshuaRiggins and Twitter https://twitter.com/JoshuaRiggins
