This past weekend marked the opening of phase 2 of the Big Sandy, MT skatepark. Last year, I wasn't able to make it to the much heralded Big Sandy weekend. But after hearing the stories and seeing how much fun was had, I knew I had to go this year ... 4+ hour drive, precious little sleep, 100+ degree temps, and mosquitoes be damned! The park was super fun and it was great to connect with people from around the state while watching some insane skateboarding.

The introduction to Pep's, nearly 5 a.m. bedtime, and soul-sucking temperatures really zapped my energy and motivation, but I was able to get a few images from the weekend though. Here's a few.
