Dan Milner has been around; the British photographer has been snapping longer than many of today’s big name shooters have been alive. You can imagine shooting for that long that things might get stale and jaded. Well, Dan is, in fact he’s pretty darn grumpy. Enter his grumpy, dry-witted alter ego the Trail Ninja. What does the Trail Ninja do? Well he travels the world making trail guides and we’re going start posting them, kicking off with his most recent outing to Santa Cruz where he hits a bunch of local faves. Below you’ll find his previous mission a bit further up the coast from San Francisco.
