Photographer Forest Woodward set out in a recently purchased — and barely running — ’77 International Scout to discover what’s left of the pioneering spirit in the American West. Along the route, Forest and his co-pilot Jessica are privy to roadside breakdowns, run-ins with remnants of the real West, and incredible scenery awash with history.

Adventure photographers typically suffer lack of sleep, sunburn, biting winds, and insect attacks, but rarely get hurt. Friend of AJ and Flagstaff-based Dawn Kish just took one for the team, though, while shooting in the Big Ditch.
“I smashed my face with my camera in a big ol’ Grand Canyon rapid,” she told Arizona Highways. I just got a new underwater housing for my camera and was so excited to shoot in the rapids. I was too busy trying to get the shot and didn’t hold on tight. We hit a big hole, and wham. I hit the cooler with my camera in front of my face. Ouch!”
