To the entire creative team at Outpost Magazine, Canada’s award-winning adventure travel magazine who helped turn the Tsa’lam feature into one of their classics – a big thank you. To Wild China, whose patient support and award aided and smoothed the road to actually getting it done (the crucial part). The Salt Road feature in Outpost Magazine is now out in Canada and available to order.
In honour of the feature article, posting some favourite moments that rekindle the ‘feel’ (and visuals) of the magnificent and humbling Tsa’lam – Salt Road. We also pay tribute to our little fighting terrier who joined, slept and combated with us…see below
Moments are sometimes the best representatives as they are just that – moments of fancy, of a little pain and of what nature can offer up
A lake at 4 km’s into the sky that remains silent
A mastiff whose ominous presence and blazing eyes belies a timid constitution
Temperatures that quicken the pulse and turbo-charge changes of clothing
Winds that silence and valleys that permeate
Soft landings, hard landings and just landing at all
Ending looks…”are we done”?
The simple and underrated feeling of autonomy in landscapes that wither the body
That last bit of land before calling it done
