Heaven Is A Mountain

1,012 dollars, 1,304 pictures, 4,130 miles round trip later.. I am back from an amazing twelve days spent in Colorado. My time there was mostly spent at Keystone, Breck, and A-Basin or the horrific holiday traffic on i70 in route to the mountains and back. I strapped in and all the B.S went away. It was just me, my homeys, and the mountains. Riding gives me that break to just forget and enjoy that moment instead of worrying about the next. My trip was full of crisp, cold montain mornings waking up at 6am to head west in to the rockies. My diet mostly consisted of Cliff bars and peanut butter sandwiches. All the pictures I took at A51 (Keystones terrain park) don’t show the effort they took. Besides the occasional snowmobile lift, I was mostly hiking up and down to different spots carrying close to 50 pounds of camera equipment with me. Being at an altitude of over 10,000 feet didn’t help either, my heart was beating fast and breathing was difficult. I constantly had to stop, drink water, and rest. I like to call all this a labor of love. The next thirty eight pictures pretty much document my trip in chronological order.. Here’s a little description of the pictures also. Happy New Years everyone.
