as miles and jack searched the tourist town of west yellowstone for food (they eventually found a taco truck), i took it to myself to meander around its streets, trying to capture the mood i had felt as the day’s last light licked my face and a familiar cooling of the air took over the area. the end of the day in montana and wyoming was always a cool blue. it was may, but something in me felt like fall was either coming around or fleeing for the winter.
while walking in this back alley, i couldn’t help but notice an american flag with the image of a native american superimposed on it, representing native american heritage, as it flapped behind a dumpster that was next to a camper/trailer. busloads of people were promenading around this night as restaurants were filled with more tourists, and stores sold their #yolostone t-shirts. however, amidst all of the commotion, i managed to find a part of town in which i was completely alone and could be with the western wind. i felt like i was hiding in the direct center of town, as the madness unfolded completely around me, completely surrounding me. somehow, a place like this exists, a weird town directly backed against one of the most wild environments in america, and i am a part of it. as i took in the beauty of the great west, i couldn’t help but think about how it was once entirely of native americans, how an endless number of people come over the years to see the wild and have the animals eat their litter. a crow eats ketchup from a cup in the middle of wyoming as a grizzly bear is hunted down by 200+ L-Series lenses in a single moment.
a wise band (piebald) once said, “hey, we’re part of it. yeah, we’re part of it.”

a drive from southeastern colorado to asheville, north carolina in two full days of daylight with some hours into the night ends like this. the day before, after having slept under the visible milky way, we woke up next to a landscape of mountainous sand dunes beside the rocky mountains in colorado, drove the car through new mexico, the barren landscape of the texas panhandle, and through the evening into oklahoma. the night before this photo was taken, we had slept in the car at a rest stop on the border of oklahoma and arkansas - 85 degrees fahrenheit at 2AM with 97% humidity - it was hell. at one point in the morning when the sun was already up and baking the black sedan, i woke up with my grease-shined face pressed against the back window to a man glaring at me as he sat parked in the space next to us - his eyes never left my face, and i just looked at him for a few moments, confused. he reversed, then parked next to another car for about 30 seconds even though most of the lot was available, and then left. i fell back asleep until a fly landed on my face. the first words i uttered out of my mouth this day were, “get me the fuck out of oklahoma.”
