I just started mountain biking a few months ago, so when I saw the opportunity to volunteer as a photographer for the Evergreen Mountain Bike Festival I was really excited. A short trip from Spokane to Issaquah brought me to the outstanding Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park where trails run plentiful amongst the ferns and moss covered trees. This is truly a beautiful and diverse location to bike — which I was finally able to try after borrowing a helmet so I could demo a bike. In all, I was struck by the strong community and great turn out by bikers of all ages.
