This is The Denver Post's first foray into truly mobile-first responsive, interactive storytelling on the web. Inspired by projects like Snow Fall, The Jockey and Out in the Great Alone, our goal is simply to create an immersive narrative that works across devices and tells a story with all relevant elements included as intuitively as possible.
