    Where is this location (pic)

    Stumbled on this photo and was hoping someone could tell me where this is?

    Life's journey is not 2 arrive @ the grave safe but rather 2 skid in sideways totally worn out shouting "Holy S what a ride!"

    It was on Osprey's (Osprey backpacks) main page of their site. I emailed them and even asked on their Facebook wall but never received a reply. Now it's a mission I must complete.

    My guess is New Zealand. Looks like volcanic rocks to me and also rather lush vegetation. Send philstrailgnome a pm. He's no longer with Osprey but he might know the answer to your mission.

    I managed to get the information that the author of this photograph is Aaron Teasdale . I looked through his website but I haven't found this image. Comparing cycling clothes and colors of nature , I came to the conclusion that the photo was taken in Vietnam.

    You are correct. The photo was taken in Vietnam by Aaron Teasdale. Will try to get more info from Aaron as to exact location.

    Finally heard from Aaron and this photo was taken in Northern Vietnam on an old French mining railroad route. He said shortly after this section the trail enters a full fledged jungle. Looks cool!

    That is an awesome picture and a beautiful location.

    Thanks for sharing. Who would have thought Vietnam to be a biking destination. Cool.
