Back in the day, they used to be called self portraits. Nowadays they call em selfies. This one was taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and a custom chest harness while out on the trails in Park City this week.

I never would have thought we'd make it to Bolivia when we did. It was a rather spontaneous decision to drop everything and invest it all into something my brother and I have dreamed about for years. Bringing a dream to reality, executing it successfully having researched only enough to do it safely, but leaving plenty of mystery to keep the adventure pure, that is our approach. We made a film that shows our passion and dedication to fly-fishing, in one of the most exotic and threatened locations on earth, the Amazon. We camped in the Cordillera Real, where snow from the 20,000' peaks feeds the great Amazon basin, and had our first experience at high altitude. It turns out that Bolivia really is an adventurers paradise. From the mountaineering, backpacking, biking, skiing, to the fishing, it's hard to imagine anywhere else in the world where these outdoor pursuits exist on a greater scale, in such close proximity to one another. It's an incredibly fulfilling and organic experience to go from an idea to a film, something thats tangible, something that I can share with others, instead of keeping the memories locked up in my brain. Anyways, I think it's worth sharing. I hope you enjoy :)

It's my favorite time of the year to ride. The air is crisp and pungent with the smell of decaying leaves, signifying the end of yet another growing season and the emergence of winter. Better get my legs in shape. All of the maple trees around Utah are going off right now with vibrant displays of color, and the aspens will be soon to follow. There is nothing quite like turning off your brain and racing through the mountains on a bicycle, the forest becomes a blur of color, like a two wheel trip with kaleidoscope eyes.
