Anyone who’s ever read “Into the Wild” (or seen the movie…) has dreamed about what it would be like to cut all ties with society, and head out to live independently off the land. While surely even conjuring the memory of this wild adventure makes you want to ditch the desk and head out West, these incredible photos will allow you to go on that adventure from the comfort of your computer.
The series, entitled Morning Views from the Tent, are taken by travel photographer, Oleg Grigoryev. Grigoryev shot the series while traveling through the Fann Mountains in Tajikistan. So grab your Camelback and get ready for an adventure.
Ah! The barefoot life…
You can almost breathe that fresh, wild air.
The bright orange tent frames the full panoramic view. Can you imagine how vast this full mountain scape really is?
Aside from the scattered camping items, this pristine wilderness is virtually untainted by humanity.
As John Muir once wrote, “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.”
If you look close enough, you can see the orange strata in the rocks – they contrast the sparse green perfectly.
And here is where we decided to drop everything and move to the mountains.
If you only had a single pack to carry with you, what would you take?
And the lucky man who got to see it all first hand!
