ive been wishing, hard, on an escape to an isolated mountain town in utah, wyoming, or montana. yknow, real cowboy terrain. mean muggin me as i walk into their dark, musty bar. where giant hills protect the tiny, glistening town with a tangible history. where i could sit cozy up in the shadow. i would stay there long enough to dodge a few bar fights and avalanches. real mountains. a few days (years) just for me.
where i would really love to be is jackson hole, wyoming. that snowboarding trip from a few years back claimed the best trip of my life, aside from my first family trip to montana where i had my first mountain high.
this is maybe the only media i have that remains of that wyoming trip
. (im pretty sure i loved it more than she remembers it.)
and im about to give away a secret, im surely jinxing my dreams here when i show you where ive really wanted to be in my adult life (mostly because it yolks my professional life in design and my greatest love, snowboarding)

the first part of this video (made in 2005) features all the greats; motion graphics by Nemo Designs, the snowboarding-oriented house/workspace with gorgeous huskies!, a utah mountain with snow, travis parker, hula hoops, day glo, big black gettin worked, and a minnesota local (bjorn leines).
for a much less selfish approach to snowboarding, ive unofficially decided to hang it up for a few years until i finish school. just wishin all my chronies the beast out there. just know that my tears are amidst the wintery mix.
