This fall I spent 6 weeks with my twin sister on a road trip through the American Southwest. As most the people we knew were returning to work or school, we were backpacking in some of the most iconic national parks of the United States. We crossed the state lines playing the guitar and navigating by map, hiked through wild and challenging terrain. We fell asleep every day tired and satisfied, and woke with the sun to start anew.
Along the way we gathered 80 GB of raw video footage. I knew I wanted to create something special with it, but I didn’t know what. It took me until January to finally finish writing the piece, but the idea for this piece originated in the desert northwest of the slot canyons in Canyonlands National Park’s Needles District.
