ARTWORK BACKSTORY
MOUNTAIN STATS

Painted in 2017

 Originally painted for the infamous Ed Anacker Bridger Ridge Run, this panoramic painting of the Bridger Range in Southwestern Montana highlights the iconic stops along the Bridger Ridge Run route and other features along its length. This work served as a trail map and poster design for the iconic mid-August race which covers approximately 32 km (20 mi) and logs a brutal elevation gain of 2,073 m (6,800 ft) and an elevation loss of 2,896 m (9,500 ft). The grueling route follows the ridgeline from Fairy Lake to the southern end of the Bridger Range and it is considered one of the most technical trail runs in the United States.


The majority of the Bridger Mountain Range lies within the Gallatin National Forest and runs north to south for a length of about 69 km (43 mi). The nonprofit Bridger Bowl ski area is nestled within the range and serves the residents of nearby Bozeman, Montana with affordable skiing and reliable snowfall. The Bridger Mountains provide a host of recreation opportunities including climbing, backcountry skiing and snowboarding, fishing, camping, hiking, climbing, Nordic skiing, and mountaineering.
