~Where Eagles Fly~ is a quest to raise a public awareness for wilderness backcountry. To help preserve and protect these lands for the future, we share awe-inspiring scenes of wildlands that convey wonderment, compel admiration and instill a profound love of our iconic backcountry.
When visiting the many National or State Parks, Recreational Wilderness areas, or Wildlife Habitats across the North American Continent, have you ever wondered what lies beyond, just over the horizon? On the other side of every mountain in the distance, vast areas remain little known and rarely visited.
Many places are so inaccessible and remote, few roads allow limited entry, meaning countless tracts of obscure, hidden lands with long-forgotten history wait to be rediscovered. Exploring isolated wilderness areas by bush plane actually leaves the smallest human footprint possible because no roads are needed to get in and out with.
~A New Visual Lexicon~ Traversing ancient animal paths, timeworn trails from First Nations tribes, and old rutted wagon roads from bygone pioneer routes, we fly across difficult and dangerous terrain searching for rare views of sumptuous, primitive hinterlands. This radically different exploration of our ancient world delivers exhilarating and genuinely awe-inspiring visions of places scarcely experienced from this perspective!
The way we see the world determines the words we use to describe what it means to each of us personally. We seek to expand our Visual Lexicon, by adding a new perspective that extends how we experience wilderness, how we talk about wilderness.
No longer limited to only ground-based or high-airliner views, we offer another way to appreciate the unbounded magnificence and beauty of Mother Earth from this special zone.
These extraordinary wildlands testify to the powerful beauty of nature. Yet they are endangered by civilizations encroachment and never-ending thirst for natural resources, we need new words to help inspire love for this amazing world, and to protect it we need Wilderness Awareness.
~This Special Zone~ Most folks view Earth from either down on the ground or very high up in jet airliners. Both views are restricted by physical limitations such as line-of-sight with ground-based views and limited fine-detail when looking down from airliners 35,000 feet above.
There is a special zone that exists only a few hundred to a few thousand feet above the ground. Here, we find spectacular pristine wilderness simply breathtaking to behold.
Where ancient lands cast a luminous glow with astonishing and sometimes bewildering results that inspirationally “Move the Soul”, invoking a sense of oneness with the planet.
These ancestral visions reach back through time. Just knowing such places still exist and thrive brings feelings of hope and immense joy.
