Common grounds – Anthony Pavkovich, Dave Laufenberg, Zach Altman
In the Summer of 2017, three friends set off on a week-long journey from Bozeman to Red Lodge, Montana, USA.
They decided to run to have and inspire adventure, and to draw attention to the importance of the common space surrounding Yellowstone National Park.
Their journey spanned 240 miles across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the largest intact ecosystem in the lower forty-eight, showing the beauty and prestige of the lands while working to keep public lands public by building awareness and community.
“We ran across the places we call home,” they said.
