Inspired by a four-night backpacking trip through the Grand Tetons and Jedediah Smith National Forest. After navigating through a series of different stages of what felt like a video game, we were confronted with crop circles, energy vortexes and switchbacks that open our eyes into what appeared to be a portal into the Pleistocene Megafauna. This was a time when Saber Tooth Tigers, Moa Birds and Wooly Mammoths used to roam freely. It made me question why these animals disappeared initially and put into perspective whether humans played a role in the mass extinction. This is a reminder that life should not be looked as a mirror, but a window.
