Photographer's Statement:

This photo was taken while I was snowboarding at lookout pass earlier this year. It reminds me that it is so easy to get caught up in all the beauty and comfort that you find in nature. Being on the mountains or in the woods is so relaxing and always feels like a vacation from the city and all its traffic and people.
