After a few months building trail and terrain parks with Elevated Trail Design in Central Colorado, Derek Wilson set out on a solo Bike tour of the West, hitting a lot of remote spots and some of the most famous roads of the west. Here are a handful of the amazing pictures he took.
Peak to Peak Highway
Hot Sulphur State Wildlife Area
Rocky Mountain N.P.
Teton Range from Shadow Mountain
I was in Missoula when I found out about the wildfire that was spreading throughout the eastern side of the park. My plan was to ride through the park on the Going to the Sun Road and it wasn’t looking like a possibility at that time. The day before I made it to the west entrance I was ecstatic to hear Logan Pass had opened up.
Richie worked for Kodak for 33 years. When I was 12 he let me borrow his Nikon FE2 on a trip we took to Arizona. It was on that trip that he taught me the fundamentals of shooting film, all the functions of the camera, and where my love for photography began. He ended up giving me the camera and I used it for every adventure that followed until this one. To keep things light and simple I decided to bring my Yashica point and shoot.
