MUD LAKE MINERS' SUPERTRAMP BUS

For the first time since I moved to Texas and then out east, I flew back home to Colorado to spend time with my family, watch my little sister graduate, and remember what altitude feels like. My first day back was spent tracking down the abandoned "Supertramp" bus dumped by the miners outside of Nederland. My father and I found this gutted bus two winters ago at the trail head of Mud Lake when we were cross country skiing around Caribou Ranch Open Space. Each time I see this bus I am compelled to rewatch Into the Wild. These shots were taken on my aunt's Canon T50 on Fuji Superia 200.
