Adventure: An unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity, with an outcome that is uncertain.

This video and these photos are about our two days in the Chilcotin mountains of BC Canada. Our aim was to try and show the viewer what it felt like to be there.

  Last photo of the ride, and still three hours to go. It's funny, because all the conversations we had about this trip after it was over, were mainly to do with what happened during those last three hours.

 thank you margus. the presentation of this video is a trip in itself. the mood of the soundtrack (planet caravan - black sabbath) really draws you into the experience and makes it stand out. the "short film" designation is spot on, very well done.

 VOD for sure. Such a cool video, definitely made me wanna get out this weekend. Flowed along the lines of matt hunter's most recent videos.

 Anyone know where this is? I gathered near Lillooet but that leaves a lot of room for interpretation. It looks amazing!

Unless it's a secret spot of course, then keep it to yourself Smile

 To the west of lillooet (nearest town is Gold Bridge). Spruce lake protected area allows mountain bikes (for now) and has a vast amount of backcountry loops/cabins accessed mostly via floatplane out of tyaughton lake (Tyax lodge).

 What? Lack of both exploding berms and annoying-ass music? Loved it.

 such a great video.. really nice change of pace. It definitely had that ephemeral feel that you only get when high up in the mountains sitting around a campfire
