A warmer-than-usual sum­mer in Åre, Swe­den, opened up routes to riders pre­vi­ously only ac­ces­si­ble to hik­ers and climbers. Red crosses mark way­ward routes over slick­rock faces and this an­cient de­cay­ing one, atop Mount Mullfjäl­let jux­ta­poses the old and new of Swe­den: his­toric moun­taineer­ing meet­ing mod­ern moun­tain bik­ing, each with deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion for na­ture’s beauty. Daniel Pet­ters­son’s pow­er­ful poise per­son­i­fies this recre­ational junc­tion per­fectly.
