Promotional video for the Backcountry Wilderness Area at Highlands Ranch, a non-profit nature preserve located along the front-range in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Shot over 4 days, run-and-gun style.

The preserve hosts a variety of community events, including hiking, trail-running, archery, autumn hay rides and sleigh rides in the winter.

Many thanks to park supervisor, Mark Giebel, as well as coordinators Eric Grover and Hope Marasco for all their help.

Special thanks to Bella and Buster, the HRCA Backcountry draught team. My gratitude also goes out to the patient passengers and community members who were all incredibly gracious about having a camera stuck in their face. It was nice of them to play along!
