The Mountain Was Always There pulls from an archive of photographs I made during a thru-hike on the Colorado Trail, a 487.5 mile footpath that begins just south of Denver and moves through the Rockies into Durango. In the middle of the miles and miles of mountain ranges, National Forests, and wilderness areas, I connected with a sorrow I didn’t expect. Maybe it was from the lack of people there, the Indigenous and Spanish names on the maps, the National Forest signs, or the abandoned coal mines. During this hike I walked many slow miles through land that was sacred long before it needed protection. This work is about standing on ranges that are painfully beautiful and acknowledging the pain therein.
