There is a growing theory in my life. This theory states that if you spend enough time at a park, you will invariably run into awesomeness. Sure enough, as I was sitting around eating lunch at Granite Creek Park in Prescott a few weeks ago, I see a guy setting up a slackline. And so I did the only sensible thing I could think of… I asked if I could take pictures of him.
His name is Brenden. He is a gymnast who happened to run into some slackliners a few years ago, and he took to it like a fish to water.
But he doesn’t just walk on the line like a lot of folks. He does crazy acrobatic jumps, flips, and dives:
He also knows the slackliners I met in Austin, which I thought was pretty neat. And so he did tricks as I shutterbugged away:

The joys of parks.
