When I started cutting up worn bike tires, there was no way to predict how this was gonna turn out. As I started to place the treads in various designs, I began to see mountain ranges. I am fascinated by the mountains. Even as I child, my face would be plastered to the window on winter trips to Angel Fire, NM. In my early twenties I found out for myself, the mountains of New Mexico are like hills compared to the San Juan Mountains. I would get hypnotized by thoughts of summer hikes up the continental divide and snowshoeing at Molas Pass. Only when you are trekking can you really take in a 360 degree view. To be humbled by nature's grandeur.
The tribal design was only by accident. It wasn't until I was half way through with the design that I was told it looked tribal.
