High Altitude Lines
High Altitude Lines is a stunner of a film following four friends on a 10-day bikepacking/fishing trip through Colorado’s San Juan mountains as they slay plenty singletrack and high country trout. Watch the film here alongside a collection of photos from the trip…
Photos and words by Benjamin Kraushaar
The goal of this trip was to bikepack through the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado and fish as many alpine lakes and creeks as possible. Sam Simmons, Justin Reiter, Dylan Stucki and I started in Telluride and made a big loop through the San Juans that lasted 10 days. We suffered through relentless rain but eventually got into some fish.
