"People rarely end up in the wilderness by chance. That's one of the things I like about it."

-Mike Purcell, Boise, Idaho

Purcell, photographed above 10,000 feet in the Pioneer Mountains of central Idaho, moved to Boise in 2000 from Milwaukee. In addition to backcountry skiing, he's an avid boater who's explored hundreds of miles of Idaho's abundant wild rivers.
