A boy and his dog.
Clyde manages a boulder field with Copper as our group descends from Castle Rock, a granite formation similar to City of Rocks, just one valley away. (And I should be more accurate; Copper is more Tracy’s dog, as Neil told me, which was quickly confirmed by their children Ruby and Clyde who both chimed in with “mom, take care of your dog!”)

Sunrise.
While the children slept, Dave Morton, Neil McCarthy and I snuck off for a quick lap on Bloody Fingers. #sunrise #dawn #climbing #cragging #familycamping #glamping #cityofrocks #idaho

Looking for 4G.
After a violent thunderstorm shuttle down the climbing, I took the bike to the mouth of the canyon to check on some work emails. This is the view of the valley just east of City of Rocks. Now for the ride back uphill to cocktail hour at the campsite. #roadtrip #freelancelife #outsideoffice #landscape #weather #sunset #cityofrocks #idaho

Thank you, Jackson.
Looking down the final stretch of single track after another 20 mile trail ride from the doorstep.
I see the attraction of a mountain town. A moose in the parking lot, a bear across the river, a cougar 30 meters from my handlebars. A mountain top, a rodeo, a family style dinner, a couch to surf, and a bunch of new friends. Not a bad way to spend a few days. Many thanks @sofia_jaramillo5 @steve_wurm @flyersfan501

Flirt.
Teen Riders and Rodeo Queens, sitting on the edge of the pens at the Jackson Hole Rodeo.
“This is the reason they get fucked up,” said 17-year-old Yancey Hays, a bull rider from Big Pine, Wyoming. “They spend more time worrying about girls than bulls, then the girls get upset because they’re one-jump-thumps.”

Tonight, rodeo.
An hour to sunset, team roping is kicking up dust in the arena, as the bull riders prepare their gear. Spurs are fastened, boots lashed tight, denim, button downs, and big hats as the boys and men eyeball the bulls in their pen.

Flight.
After the valley clouds broke, I tagged along on a story @sofia_jaramillo5 is working on, giving me the opportunity to ride the tram to the top of the mountain. Unfortunately, a tandem flight wasn’t in the cards for either of us. But, it was inspiring and fun to watch someone else on the job. #teton #paragliding #flight #summer #sun #jackson #wyoming #roadtrip
