Cheap Artwork & Priceless Memories

2015-11-13 12.13.23

Flashback to 2013, I was a Illinois cyclist headed out west for my first taste of real mountain biking at Crested Butte, Colorado. My eyes were opened. A great trip filled with amazing friends, world-class trail, and lifelong memories.

While I was hanging out in Mount Crested Butte with friends eating and enjoying a beer and the warm mountain sun setting in the range behind us, I saw a few local newspapers and local ads. I saw this visitor’s guide in that pile. I really like the art design. I brought it back to the tent that night, folded in half and put into my luggage. After the good byes were said and we arrived back in the cornfields of Illinois, I bought a frame and hung it on a wall.

Every time I walk by this $12 frame holding the 2013 Crested Butte Visitors Guide I smile thinking of the good times that I’ve been privileged to experience. Good times that are the result of bicycles and more importantly the amazing people who I call friends and family.

Relive the trip in question here.
