We often dismiss backyard exploration as not even worth the effort. But when its the Uinta Mountains out your door, down-home adventure can be as exhilarating as the most far-flung locales.

Recently I got into shooting photos of people at the conclusion of an epic adventure, to try to capture the jubilation, relief, exhaustion and sense of achievement from what we have just completed. In 2012, we rode a 12-day out-and-back through the Uttrakahand region of India, a steep mountainous area tucked under the Himalayas at the edge of the Nepalese border. I shot a portrait of each of our nine-rider team, two minutes after we rolled out of the very last descent on the last day. Then I set up my Leica M9 and handed it to one of the group to shoot me. Somehow I look like I have just finished a Sunday ride, so that clearly did not work this time around.
