Colorado is a place of wonder and awe, holding some of the most extreme landscapes in North America. Rolling plains and desert landscapes come together as The Rockies. You feel like you are constantly watched over by signs of these mountain giants. The air gets dry and thinner, which means for a person such as me who has traveled from close to sea level, it becomes pretty noticeable. Just over a month ago I made the journey out to Denver to join in on a trip with the Pusher crew. Clay Brown, owner of Pusher Bmx Shop and all around great guy, puts together a trip every year to explore the mountains with the bikes in tow. Not only does Colorado have some of the biggest mountains, but they also have some of the biggest and best cement parks to ride. The adventure brought new friends, fun nights under the bright stars, carves for days and some incredible opportunities to photograph and film a place that holds a significance to the person I am. Currently I am working on a full length project that will include footage and audio from the trip. So look for that to come out in the next couple months.
On the Ridges above Telluride what was left of the group indulged me, letting me try out some different photos within the aspen tree forests.
We started out 15 strong. Heads turn when you have a group like this making their way through the mountains.
