7 first ascents in Patagonia in the bag - duh Patagonia deletes their own promo videos? whatever.

so replace with something different. Now that winter is coming to an end, a documentary from Antarctica. Long video, worth watching if you ever wondered how people actually live down there

Welcome to Union Glacier

After that Teton Gravity Research Tour de Drone, here's one from some of the pioneers of drone video from 4 years ago. All their gear back then was home made:

Have we recovered from the time change? Why again are we doing this twice a year?

A guy named Colby who helped the Mile, Mile and a Half crew made a video like this. I find them pretty fascinating.

2600 MILES IN 4 MINUTES: Time-lapse of my Pacific Crest Trail hike

Published on Mar 11, 2015

The end of the trail is just the beginning of the story. Visit http://www.LostorFound.org to learn more about the short film, Lost or Found: Life after 2600 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. READ INFO BELOW...

The wonderful music in this video is the title track from MARTIN SEXTON's album, IN THE JOURNEY. Please check him out at http://www.martinsexton.com and on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/ma...

INFO ON THE HIKE AND TIME-LAPSE VIDEO:

The Pacific Crest Trail travels 2660 miles through the mountains of California, Oregon and Washington, starting at the Mexico border fence near the small town of Campo, CA, and finishing just across the Canadian border in Manning Park, British Columbia. It took about 5 months to complete and I lost 50 pounds in process. Total elevation change was about 450,000 feet, with the high point being 13,200 feet at Forester Pass in the High Sierras. I documented the physical transformation of the environment and myself by taking a selfie on trail every single mile of the hike.

To follow along with the trail and pictures in the video, you can view a map with mileage markers here: http://www.lostorfound.org/timelapse....

The process of stopping to take a picture every mile had a big impact on my actual experience of doing the hike. I had to be well aware of where I was at all times, which was quite annoying in that it made it difficult to get in a zone and maintain good momentum. That said, I am happy to have done it, and it provided a good conversation starter with so many hikers that I would meet along the way. I love seeing so many wonderful faces popping up in pictures in unexpected places.

For the purposes of showing the Pacific Crest Trail in it's entirety, this video is actually a combination of two hikes. Mile 0 through 2424 was done in 2013, before an early snow storm dumped more than six feet of snow on the trail north of Snoqualmie Pass, WA making it impassable at the time. So I road walked the rest of the way to Canada along the Iron Horse Trail and Highway 97 north to Osoyoos, British Columbia. I went back in 2014 to hike the missed portion of the PCT from 2424 to the trail's Northern Terminus at mile 2660. The snow storm and road walk will feature in the upcoming short film, Lost or Found: Life after 2600 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail.

Keep watching to see the lady come out and hang her laundry.

The bird plays with the clothes as she hangs them out.

had no idea this had been done: From 12th - 16th February 2014, Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold succeeded in completing the full traverse of the range, from north to south

Time for a decent time lapse video - this one from "Navarre" in northern Spain (I had to look it up).

This one takes a few minutes to build. Hilarious. Can't embed here due to privacy settings, but hey, it's worth a click - it's called "Bear" grin

That's twisted. Some people have a different sense of humor. Too close to reality for me.

Have bushwalked/camped/rock-climbed a lot in that exact area. Never did see a bear - or a ranger, either. The Hawkesbury Sandstone formations persist to the coast, and climbing has an extra degree of difficulty due to the portable handholds.

Yosemite Granite is bliss in comparison.

you beat me to it - The Important Places is so good, just replace the Grand Canyon with any other place you love. Made me wonder if my kids later in life will remember what I have been trying to show them at an early age.
