Photo by C4 friend @j.j.kelley // The Colorado River just south of the Utah border in Arizona. I'm not stretching the truth when I say that this is the most beautiful river I have ever seen. The contrasting colors are an absolute knockout. The river itself meanders between towering 2,000-foot cliffs. If you've never been, you've got to check it out! #coloradoriver#getoutthere
Photo by C4 friend @j.j.kelley // Just 25 years ago, an intrepid adventurer named Chris Mccandless ventured into the wild. His objective was to live off the land; it was to be an endeavor that challenged him and a theater where he would prove that he was capable of surviving in one of the harshest environs in the world. He was successful for 113 days, but Chris ultimately met his ends when a flooded river materialized as an impass. Fairbanks Bus 142 was where Chris retreated and ultimately where Chris died. His is a contentious and heart wrenching story that inspired and anguished a generation. It's with great fondness that we look back. #intothewild#25yearsago#chrismccandless
Photo by C4 director @renan_ozturk // words by @jetbutterflies Last night, the community of Saadi, Nepal cobbled together a makeshift movie theater in an abandoned home to host the Nepal premiere of The Last Honey Hunter short film. ~
The doors and windows were fastened tight against the monsoon downpour outside. Inside, dust from the dirt floor and the heavy smoke of homemade cigarettes hung in the light of the small projector, playing the film wavy and bright across a white sheet tacked to the wall. ~
In so many ways, we made this film for a audience of one: Mauli Dhan Rai. The main subject of the film and @natgeo article, he developed an almost mythical presence in our imaginations as we told his story. But there he was, front and center, enjoying himself entirely while grinning and laughing with his neighbors and honey hunting teammates. ~
Mauli Dhan and his community have immeasurably changed us all for the better. The least we could do was to make the effort to give their story back to them -- hopefully in a condition that was at least as good as we found it to be. ~

@camp4collective director @ansonfogel dreams of one place - The Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument. Bigger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined, yet with fewer humans, roads, atms and cole machines than anywhere else in the continental US. Pure magic empty landscapes. Untouched wild and hard to access places. He and his partner @alexandrafuller invite you to find this magic there. There is no trail. No sign. You have to work to get it here. Go try.
C4 director @renan_ozturk // I have to admit it's been a long time since I've had the time to do a painting in the alpine with all the hustle and bustle of climbing and filmmaking. Maybe since this @davemossop@sherpascinema@reddigitial still at 18k ft Pumori basecamp in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Currently locked and loaded to go back to this place with canvas and paints, with a tiny window to get it done! #thetimeisnow#paintinginapush#nepal
Camp4 Director, @timkemple, walking the spine ridge between Castleton Tower and The Rectory outside of Moab, UT. Have you been here? It's one of our favorite views in all of Utah.
We used to take road trip 'pit stops' to stretch our legs. These days though we take them to spread our wings.
Nice sunset light on #MtHood was hard to pass up, especially with a fresh set of batteries for the @djiglobal#phantom4 all charged up.
C4 intern @aldensimmer photo // I took this quick shot while assisting some of the most creative and hardworking cinematographers capture a once in a lifetime event ... The amount of work and effort behind the scenes that @renan_ozturk@eric_crosland@taylorfreesolo and the whole @sherpascinema crew put into their shots is world class. Even more inspiring than their work, is their constant internal drive to one up themselves and their ability to hold themselves to a standard only they can see ... We also had the insanely fast and indefatigable @austin_siadak climbing in the sketchiest of spots, adding to the intensity and uniqueness of the shots.
C4 collaborator @austin_siadak photo // Perfect stone, exhilarating exposure, and majestic views of towers and walls stretching to the horizon. It just doesn't get much better. Especially when you scramble past another party near the summit who just happens to be wearing a bright red jacket to make the picture pop and put everything into perspective. Still not sure why it took me so long to get to the Winds. Already stoked to go back.

I spent the weekend in the desert with a bunch of passionate climbers and artists. We told ourselves that we were running around in 100 degree heat in the name of 'The Eclipse' but really it was just an excuse to play in the desert again.
After several days of searching and a few 'scorching summit scouting missions' we found a few towers that would line up well with the sun during the midday eclipse.
We decided that The Priest was the 'most badass' in terms of climbing and authenticity -- so at an early hour of 9AM we hiked up the hill with a bunch of tripods and lenses. There wasn't another soul in sight all day.
Check out my story for some of the mis-adventure down in the desert.
Photo by C4 friend @j.j.kelley // Hiking Iceland's Laugavegur Trail, we found a restaurant! It was a tiny cabin that served sweet potato mash, pork and cold beer. We couldn't pass it up. The dinner stop did mean we had to hike at night to make our camp, but the midnight sun made it no problem. This photo was taken 20-minutes before reaching camp at 10:30 pm. #iceland#laugavegur#midnightsun
Staying out late to get the shot is always worth it. // great #camp4pix submission by @maxrhulen
