Open Door to Solitude

“I always believed that God created the world but he spent a lot more time up there [in the high country]…the first time we rode out of this drainage and got in to the high country…it was like walking through a door.”

“You just have to go up there and experience it.”

“I’m never afraid up there. If I die up there, that’s a beautiful place to die.”

“If you need it, you go.”

A very well done film by the Seattle-based outdoor company Filson.
“Every couple of months, 68-year-old Ed Zevely rides into the Colorado high country to camp for weeks at a time—and he does it completely alone. Through thunderstorms, open meadows and treacherous passes, he finds his own patch of serenity. Far from the modern world, it’s a place where the only goal is to move and breathe, and where you can truly understand the difference between loneliness and solitude.”
