Last July, filmmaker Jake Strassman and his impressively mustached friend Travis Halverson took off on a midsummer’s camping trip in the Gore Range of Colorado. In this video from Strassman, they soak in the iconic scenery of the Centennial State, from rugged peaks to alpine lakes and streams, while enduring the constantly changing mountain weather, which resulted in a cloudy summit. As Strassman told us, “Not every summit reveals its vistas for those who earn it.” You can follow Strassman on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
