Video: The Atacama Night Sky in Timelapse

The Atacama Desert in northern Chile is the driest place on Earth. It also happens to be one of my favorite places on Earth. It is an amazing destination filled with stunning landscapes and fantastic opportunities for adventure. The Atacama is also home to the most breathtaking night skies I have ever seen in all my travels. This video gives us a glimpse of this special place and what it is like there at night. Nothing can truly prepare you for the sights that you'll discover in the desert, but this clip comes about as close to anything else that I've found, save going there yourself.

Video: Mountain Hardwear - Limits Unknown

This short clip is a teaser for a new ad campaign coming our way from Mountain Hardwear this spring. It features some wonderful shots of MH athletes doing their thing in remote areas of the world, with some motivational narration that will get you ready to head out and explore not just our planet, but your own personal limits too. Over the past few years, Mountain Hardwear has strayed a bit from its mission, but the team that is currently there is working hard to get things back on track. I'm a big fan of the company's gear, and I really like what they have in store for us. They are currently cranking out some of the best, most innovative products in the industry, and I think you're going to be appreciate what they will deliver to stores starting early in 2017.

Video: Where Have All the Stars Gone? - How Light Pollution Affects the Night Sky

One of the great joys of travel for me is visiting places where it is so dark that you can see the night's sky completely unobstructed. Watching the billions of stars overhead is an incredibly humbling experience. But, not everyone gets to feel that thanks to light pollution, which can block the heavens, even on the darkest of nights. In this video, we see just how much of an impact the urban lights can have as we walk through the various levels of light pollution and how they affect our enjoyment of the stars overhead. These timelapse images will put everything into perspective and help you appreciate our dark zones even more.

Video: Rise - Exploring Oregon by Drone

The state of Oregon is an incredibly beautiful place, but it never seems to get its proper due, in part because it is competing for attention with other western states like Colorado, Montana, and Utah. But in this video, Oregon gets the attention it deserves, as it is four minutes of spectacular footage captured by drone. The results are some impressive landscapes that reveal some of the best hidden gems in the American West.
