    Posted on by

    The Two Sisters are a pair of stone pillars that stand above the Bitterroot River near Lolo, Montana. It had planned almost 2 years since I had last hiked to them. You have a cross the Bitterroot River, which is low at this point in the year.

    Mill Creek Downhill

    Posted on by

    Discovered this single track downhill while hiking in the Mill Creek area. Thought it would be fun, and I was not disappointed. A little too steep and a little too fast in places, but hell, it was worth it. Shot with GoPro Hero 4 at 1080 and 60 fps. Apple ProRes 422 HQ is the… Read more »

    Bitterroot (dharma) River and Montana (vajra) Sky

    Posted on by

    It is the time of day when everything becomes soft. The formerly blazing sun transforms into a warm blanket of light. Delicate mayflies swarm over the round rocks and ripples of the river. The sun continues its descent has the moon, a sliver of a crescent, dutifully follows. Kingbirds and Cedar Waxwings slice through the… Read more »
