VIDEO: The Weight of Mountains

Here is an amazing short from film-maker,  Scott Expedition Team member and friend of the brand Temujin Doran about those things we love the most Mountains.

“This is a short film about the processes by which mountains are created and eventually destroyed. It is based upon the work of British geographer L. Dudley Stamp, and was shot in Iceland.

Physical geography and geology is an enormous and fascinating subject, and this film only touches upon the surface of the discipline. For those who wish to further advance their knowledge in this field, additional reading and research is recommended.”
