Life is an adventure. Well, atleast that's how we look at it. And we threw ourselves right into action at the 2014 GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado to experience some of the toughest and most rugged professional and amatuer athletes compete in over 9 sports and 25 disciplines for more than $100,000. We even got involved with a 2.5mile kayak, 7k obstacle run, and a 14mile XC mountain bike ride, but who cares what we did. Here's some of the most epic shots of the real pros, all captured with the most versatile camera on the planet, the GoPro Hero 3+.
