Mountain Air, Sour Stench of Hippies, and the Stale Aroma of Cheap Cigs: Otis Mountain Get Down 2018

Photographed by Mike Heinz and Alexandra Peace

 

Breathe the mountain air, the sour stench of hippies, old and young, and the stale aroma of cheap cigarettes.  Far as I’ve known, this cocktail belongs to few places, and Otis Mountain is one. 

You've got hippies, hipsters, drinkers, straight edges, kids, grandmas, granddads, moms, dads and my man Zeb; all there for a weekend of clean air and peace from who cares where they came from. If anything, this year reinforced the strength of the Otis community, and showed us once again, why this festival is one worth traveling cross the country for. Enjoy the photos and we’ll see you back on the mountain.
