Video: Trail Running Through the Canyons of Nowhere, Utah

The stunning landscapes of American southwest take center stage in this beautiful video that follows ultrarunners Rickey Gates and Dakota Jones as they head into the canyons of "Nowhere, Utah" to explore the amazing topography that is found there. Traveling on foot and by raft, the two men discover a vast wilderness that is simply breathtaking to behold. This is another great video from the team a Salomon, who have been knocking it out of the park with their clips recently. I hope you enjoy.

Video: A Mountain Biking Expedition to Mongolia

While I was away exploring Mongolia on horseback, this video was released that shares an epic mountain biking trip to the same region that I was visiting. In the short film, three friends travel to the western part of the country to packraft and ride through the spectacular Altai Mountains. It turned out to be quite an adventure, and the footage they captured along the way looks a lot like the region that I recently traveled through as well. If you'd like to know what this place looks like, this will give you a good idea of what to expect if you plan on visiting yourself.

Video: A Packrafting Adventure in the High Sierra

Recently, adventurer Hank Leukart – who writes about his travels at the website Without Baggage – gathered up two of his best friends and headed out on a hiking trip into the Ansel AdamsWilderness Area in California. The trio were looking for an adventure, and were hoping to find some pristine alpine lakes to packraft while they were there. As with all good adventures, not everything goes as planned, but the journey is at least as important as the destination. Read Hank's rundown of the trip here, and check out the short film he made of their three-day expedition below. It looks like the guys had a lot of fun in the High Sierras.
