Riding a unicycle isn't easy, especially if you try it along the rolling, dusty paths of the Colorado Trail. That's what street performer Jamey Mossengren did for three weeks this summer, completing the entire 500-mile Denver-to-Durango backcountry passage. Along the way, he ran into bears and other wildlife. He was also surprised to find his faith in humanity renewed. He spoke to Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
