“We have so much more wilderness than just the names of Glacier, Bob Marshall and Yellowstone. You can pretty much throw a rock and have it land off a beaten trail. I just like the fact that there's always somewhere to go that hasn't yet— Kevin Connolly
been discovered. ”
Born without legs, Kevin Connolly, a photographer and X-Games monoski silver medalist, isn't afraid to take on a challenge. Traveling by skateboard and usually with camera in hand he's experienced more than two dozen different countries, finding and chronicling cross-cultural similarities among people. Attributing his spirit to being a Montana native, Kevin thrives on following the trail less taken, pushing the boundaries of his own ability and skill. Its untouched wilderness matched with his prove-yourself-mentality gives him the strength and inspiration he carries with him.
