Husband-and-wife photography team Brian Mohr and Emily Johnson are doing things the hard way with their Wild People, Wild Places project: For their most recent adventure, featured on the cover of Wend Magazine's January 2011 issue, the duo toured Norway's Arctic Alps for a month using only skis and bicycles, partly to help put their own globetrotting lifestyle into perspective and partly to atone for all the jet fuel used for even this no-frills eco-trip.
Tonight they're bringing their slideshow from the trip, Two Wheels, Two Planks: Powered Skiing in Arctic Norway to Neptune Mountaineering (633 South Broadway Suite A, Boulder, CO) for a free show at 7 p.m. Pick up a $5 raffle ticket to benefit the Winter Wildlands Alliance and enter to win prizes from more than a dozen sponsors backing the Wild People, Wild Places project and slideshow tour.
