(Video) Finding Oregon. Finding the West.

I came across this video today thanks to a post by the band, Orgone, and I really found it stunning.  It's a time lapse of landscapes all across Oregon, but I felt that it reached well beyond that and spoke to me, not just as a resident of the Pacific Northwest, but as someone with a broad attachment to the Western wild places.

And while there isn't a step of running in this video, if you've ever run the cirque of an Alpine lake or watched the Milky Way come to life on a nighttime run, you'll feel it's as much about ultrarunning as anything else.
