It was one hell of a journey during the fourteen months making Wyoming Wildscapes II, my second and final (maybe not!) Wyoming related time lapse project. Had plenty of adventures while working on this. Lightning almost got me a couple of times this summer, gear froze up in the winter (literally), and broke a few times (don't think most of the time lapse gear was meant for extended wilderness backpacking), all that fun stuff. Despite any minor set backs, this was without a doubt one of the most fulfilling personal projects I've ever undertaken. Saw some pretty amazing stuff along the way, this part of the country never ceases to amaze and surprise me.

Wind & Rattlesnakes records the amazing story of how a cadre of world-class climbers was drawn to Lander, Wyoming by its unique geology and uncrowded climbing opportunities. The vagabond adventurers found more than just rocks, they found a home; and Lander, a quiet ranching and tourist town, evolved into one of the most welcoming climbing communities in the world.

Professional climber Jenn Flemming had always wanted to climb Devils Tower, the otherworldly volcanic formation that was featured in the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” Devils Tower National Monument is located in eastern Wyoming, a day’s drive from Jenn’s home in Colorado, where she has achieved several first female ascents. Jenn grew up in Massachusetts and has climbed in top U.S. destinations and in China, Iran, South Africa, Bolivia and other countries. She loves climbing that is very technical, and credits her parents with instilling a passion for the outdoors by taking her on many family trips to America’s National Parks.
