Tyler Lydon was sporting some fresh ink Monday. About a month ago, he got an owl’s head and a mountain landscape tattooed on his left arm. Lydon, who grew up in Elizaville, New York, had both of them done as a way to remind himself of his rural upbringing.
“I just grew up in the outdoors,” he said. “I just wanted to get a bunch of stuff to kind of remind me of home.”
Lydon lives in the city now, but he still gets opportunities to sneak away with the Rocky Mountains so close. He likes fishing for trout. When his dad came to visit earlier this summer, the two of them went coyote hunting.
“I know a guy out in Jefferson,” he said.
