I think over again my small adventures, my fears
Those small ones that seemed so big.
For all the vital things I had to get and to reach.
And yet there is only one great thing,
The only thing,
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.
A 6 weeks adventure into the wilderness of Northwestern United States of America.
Filming & adventuring alone during 4 weeks across 4 different states : Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Washington. On the road with Kier Atherton during 2 weeks in Montana.
Felt Soul Media teamed up with Nick Waggoner and Yuki Miyazaki of Sweetgrass Productions in January 2012 to hunt the mythical Hokkaido Unicorn. The creature proved difficult to capture on film, so we just decided to do a little skiing.
Lots of love and high fives to Patagonia and the 5Point Film Festival for helping make this short possible.

Legendary rock climber Alex Honnold scales Yosemite’s Half Dome, El Capitan and Mount Watkins without a rope, defying gravity to ascend the world’s most inspiring walls. Alex shares stories of his childhood visits to Yosemite, his travels to the best climbing on the planet, and his deep appreciation for America’s National Parks. (http://www.NationalParks.org/explore) The breathtaking beauty and epic size of Yosemite are featured, with spectacular video of its waterfalls, valleys, meadows, and ancient giant sequoias. The tranquility of the High Sierras and the quiet grace of Alex Honnold contrast the extreme danger of his free solo climbs. This video was shot before the Rim Fire and other 2013 fires at Yosemite.
