The Cowboy Trail

A shot from Canada route AB-22 (the Cowboy Trail), summer 2014. @eddingsb and I made a 15-day road trip out of it, heading from Seattle and making it as far as Spokane that first night. Thanks to a "Roaring Start Breakfast" the next morning we got off on the right foot and headed to Whitefish, MT and over the next two weeks cruised through the western side of Glacier National Park before crossing out of the park on the east side and up into Canada. The Cowboy Trail took us north until near Calgary where we headed west again and spent time in Banff and Jasper before making our way back home by way of Kamloops, B.C. The Cowboy Trail was everything I had hoped it would be--remote and beautiful, the kind of place that draws you in.

Credit Where Credit is Due

Before anything else, it is necessary to recognize two people who were key to making Buried Hatchet more than just an idea.

Weston Brinkley is a great friend and has brought perspective and technical skill to the process of developing Buried Hatchet from start to finish. Weston has an entrepreneurial and creative business savvy and has been a valuable and supportive partner in all of our collaborations.


Rush Fay is an incredibly talented graphic designer, and is responsible for making our bad-ass logo out of the scribble I gave him on a post-it note. Having relocated to Seattle all the way from New Zealand, he brings an impeccable sense of aesthetic and style to everything he does. Oh, and he's my cousin.

Thank you both for all the help!
