Adventure Is Calling

Photographer Shane Black had a comfy job, but the dream of traveling across the United States to capture the majestic beauty of America's most beautiful spots had always been in the back of his mind.

One day, Black was joking with his friends about the trip, but the as the idea got more serious, they all committed to leaving their jobs to travel for two months. Black and his friends set off on a 13,000 mile (~20,900 km) journey in a trusty old Dodge Caravan (with no cruise control, no less!) and visited 32 states and 13 national parks.

The result is this breathtaking video clip titled Adventure Is Calling, composed of over 10,000 photographs, that you simply must see in full screen:
