Captured on Film

October 9th, 2008  ·  posted in Blog,Photography by Greg

After weeks of anticipation, the photos from our trek have finally been uploaded. Seeing as we took over 1,000 pictures, they are still in abbreviated form, but they will give you a good taste of what the trip was like. Check out all the pictures and then watch the video (titled “The Black Rock Chronicle”) and you’ll feel like you were there – all except being short of breath that is.

All pictures were taken with a Nikon D-70, which unfortunately had to be repaired after the trip. I guess the extreme conditions took their toll on my camera as well as my lungs.

The Black Rock Chronicle – Everest Region, Nepal

September 16th, 2008  ·  posted in Videos by Greg

The travelers embark on a “breathtaking” journey from Kathmandu, through Lukla to Everest Base Camp in Nepal.  This journey took 14 days (10 ascending, 4 descending), 8 weeks of planning and training, and reached an elevation of 18,484 ft (5,550 m). It was one of the nicest countries we have visited yet. Thanks to Deepak Lama and everyone at Wilderness Experience for an amazing and friendly trek!

Stay tuned for a short clip of our outtakes coming soon!


A Midwinter’s Daydream – Bran, Romania

September 15th, 2008  ·  posted in Videos by Greg

An empty winter day takes our travelers out of their lonely habitat and into Bran, Romania. The sights of this wonderful, small village include Castel Bran (Dracula’s Castle), an amazing hilltop view, and strange haircuts.  Bran is just a short 20 minute bus ride from Gara II in the amazing medieval city of Brasov, where our heroes were once knighted as members of the Order of the Transylvanian Knights.  Thanks to Nicholae with The Company of Mysterious Journeys for his help in organizing our visit!


Tipova Canyon Monastery & Waterfalls

April 29th, 2008  ·  posted in Videos by Greg

This hike was the perfect opportunity for RoK and Greg to make the first sketch video for this site. Located on the Nistru River in the Rezina region Ţipova, Moldova has both natural and historical attractions, with 5 waterfalls as well as canyon formations that reveal an ancient coral reef remains – and plenty of light climbing opportunities. It was a full day event (from the capital Chişinău) including the 3-hour round-trip transport and the 11km hike.



Along the trip we also visited an ancient rock monastery located on the Nistru river, and secluded pasture that’s considered an archaeological site since it has been continuously inhabited for thousands of years.
