Mountain Solitude |

 

"I was born and raised in California, but over the last four years, I've spent time living in Michigan, Washington, and Idaho.  I feel fortunate to have been able to travel, explore, and live in so many beautiful places. The differences in topography, eco systems and scenery will always be the advantage of living in the Golden State, where you can catch a glassy morning surf and be in the fresh air of 14,000 mountains before dinner.  After 20 years of exploring back roads on my motorcycle, I know I can always find freedom and solitude in the mountains here.  This trip was no different. Maybe it was the passing of a thunderstorm with a rainbow that disappeared into the freshly damp pine trees, or the smell of campfire left in my clothes from the night before, but all the circumstances kept me in the moment. There's a certain magic that happens in the mountains and it's always nice to be able to witness it".
