As the country begins to reopen, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

Crankworx, one of the largest bike festivals in the world, rolls through Whistler for ten days every August. In addition to drawing some of the best downhill, slopestyle, and enduro cyclists, the event also attracts photographers.

I was selected for Crankworx’s Deep Summer Photo Challenge in 2013 and had three days to put together an epic slideshow. One afternoon, I came upon this ridge with Ollie Jones and Kevin Landry. They rode from the top, and I snapped photos as the sun set behind them.
