Friday Fotos: Secrets!

Shhhhh — don’t tell!

Dylan shreds a “secret” powder stash at Vali, Colorado, a few years ago.

FRISCO — It’s hard to keep something a secret when you post pictures of it, but that’s part of the fun and charm of this week’s edition of the weekly #FriFotos Twitter chat, one of the coolest social media events on the web. As a writer and photographer, I’m constantly torn between sharing the amazing places and stories I discover in the course of reporting and keeping them as private secrets, In some cases, people ask me specifically to not give away certain locations. In other situations, it’s part of my job to uncover dirty little (or big) secrets held by big corporations or even the government. For FriFotos, I’ll steer away from the muckraking and stick with sharing some of the best secrets from around my home stomping grounds in Summit County, Colorado and a few other spots.

Got a secret you’r itching to share? Upload your pic, tag it with #FriFotos and join the conversation.
