Freedom is earned by long distant hours of foot steps up rugged terrain. Well before the dawn, beyond the setting sun's alpen-glow, and under a frosted starry night illuminated by the moonlight. Where plentiful vistas of desirable features are obscured by jagged peaks, and the rider is drawn to explore deeper with the minds eye. Inspiration is everywhere, and the path you choose will undoubtedly influence your life and work on a profound level. Out among the mountains in our backyard, this is where I feel most at home.
