People of High Mountain Places

Central Oregon in the springtime leaves us with a deep snowpack.  All the anxious October people are out of the mountains soaking up the sun at any numerous bar-side patios, which leaves the mountains quiet, yet ready to offer more hospitable riding conditions for those who seek it.  A group of Volcano Riders has been developing over the last two seasons in search of good lines in the backcountry rallied by our gyspsy Colorado motivator Dave Watson.  The following galleries are three excursions out into the Central Oregon Backcountry, two on Broken Top, and one at our favorite backcountry hide-away.  Enjoy.

About Dave Reuss

They say you can take the kid out of Cottonwood, but ya can't take the Cottonwood outta the kid, which has led this small town time traveler in search of landscapes to ride far and near. Trail rider, snow smasher, roofer, undercover nerd, it's a mixed bag of good times.
