  4. Mya Llure on April 30, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Best hiking The Southwest video ever!!! Great mix of friends!!! Can’t wait for your next video!

  5. Es H on April 30, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    Great channel guys! We rented some ugly neoprene boots, but it was worth it.

  6. Julie Moran on April 30, 2020 at 3:20 pm

    Third and last favorite quote … "… enjoyed a great night in this hubristic, lascivious city … (land of the thesaurus!). Just kidding guys, really, really, really love these!!!

  7. Austin L on April 30, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    Been watching this stuff for over a year.

    Bored? Turn on some AA to pass the time. You won’t regret it.

    It’s almost like yous guys bring the viewer along for the ride. And God knows I need to de-stress, even if I can’t get out in it myself.

    Edit: also, thanks for upgrading to 4k cam’s it really makes it all the more immersive!

  8. cocogomez1987 on April 30, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    And from cloudcroft New Mexico you hike the tops of mountains covered in pine and broadleaf forests and from the trails u can see down below into the desert valleys. And you can just make out white sands in the distance. It’s almost trans dimensional being in forest staring into giant crystal dunes

  9. cocogomez1987 on April 30, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    So bummed you guys didn’t hike white sands !!!! You were so close !!!!!!!

    Second Favorite Quote … (re: all natural, organic, butane free campfire), "You guys are a bunch of Philistines! You can’t appreciate the art of the wood."

  11. Pilgrim Carolee on April 30, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    Thomas! Please leave the naming of plants, mushrooms etc to Andrew. PLEASE!!!

  12. George MP on April 30, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    Loved the video and Southwest looks great! Who knew Sandstone could be so colorful!

    Count me out of Angel’s Landing, though. With my luck I would fall from the highest point even with those chains to hold onto. Just a big nope, but I’d love to walk in that canyon and see Horseshoe Bend someday. So different from the Midwest.

  13. docvideo93 on April 30, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    Zion looks super chill! When I visited, it was hot and crowded. I hated every minute in being there. When did you visit?

  14. Bridgette B on April 30, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    I first discovered your channel after watching a 40 mile solo hike that Robbie did that was recommended to me on my page and have binge watching you guys since. Such amazing content and informative too. I’ve learned and become more interested in fun-gi and native plant identification. Just wanted to say I’m a fan!

  15. JoePesty on April 30, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    if I’m stuck in a Zombie Apocalypse I want to be with Andrew, he can make a fire and knows which plants to eat.

  16. Moe Younas on April 30, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    @adventurearchives – i love the fact that you guys take the whole kitchen with you 😂

    I’m waiting for the day when one of you take out your oven to bake a cake 😂

  17. Clearway Media on April 30, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Absolutely love watching these videos. What camera do you guys prefer quality wise out of the GH5 and A7sii? Very interested to know as the quality of the footage looks amazing but not sure what cameras used for the certain shots haha!

  18. Jose Payano on April 30, 2020 at 3:30 pm

    Hey what’s the name of the restaurant you guys ate in ( 44:37)?

  19. SushiLeader on April 30, 2020 at 3:31 pm

    25:34 is the definition of sweaty palms…

  20. Ron Kills Warrior on April 30, 2020 at 3:31 pm

    You guys have to come to South Dakota, and tour the Black Hills and the Badlands! Also visit the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) people!

  21. Luis Sebastian on April 30, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    This is the third video I watch from you guys and from the time I watched the first video I thought of suggesting Angels Landing but never posted the comment. Glad you guys made it to one of Utah’s jewels. Love your channel and glad you guys pay tribute to such amazing national monuments. Keep up the good work 😁

  22. Thepagemaster 1 on April 30, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    I always skipped the end credit. But after watching these I realized I missed out on a lot! Keep it up guy’s 💪

  23. Kristina on April 30, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    I had to look away during the Angels Landing hike. Hell no!!! Y’all are so brave.

  24. Vickie Ballard on April 30, 2020 at 3:43 pm

  25. doreen Booth on April 30, 2020 at 3:44 pm

  26. Zak Rivers on April 30, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    Great musical tribute to Ennio Morricone! I enjoy you guys so much!

  27. MacLancasterMusic on April 30, 2020 at 3:47 pm

    Just found your channel, and I love it!!! So thankful this TV quality content is on YouTube. I seriously cannot believe you guys only have 68K subscribers… you guys will blow up!

  28. Landon Whitsitt on April 30, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    32:16 This is why we love you guys.

    I would’ve expected the water in the river to be refreshing but I guess I’d never know

  31. Daniel on April 30, 2020 at 3:51 pm

    Im getting ready to do an overnight backpacking trip next weekend so I have been binge watching your episodes! Love this stuff man. Im new to the channel but loving it.

  32. Natacha Terton on April 30, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    Hi guys, thanks for sharing your experience, I was wondering, what time of the year was it? I have never been to the US but this route is definetly an area I would love to visit and wander around. I do relate tho to some of the feelings you’re expressing from my hicking in europe. Keep cool !

  33. William Beck on April 30, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    What a great series of episodes….a refreshing detour from your backpacking videos.

    Andrew tasting food: takes a bite…..chews…..nods head…..says "good."

  34. Ryan Murray on April 30, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    Hey guys, I was curious as to any checkpoints to travel down Rt. 89 on the outskirts of the Navajo Reservation. Also curious as to the parking situation at Horseshoe Bend?

  35. Moonbeam on April 30, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    27:58 What’s the matter? The CIA got you pushing too many pencils?

  36. S A on April 30, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    Don’t even feel quarantined or locked down in a way with all the great movie length videos you guys put out.

  37. JustAMessenger on April 30, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Ya that’s just what a city needs, people pretending to make meth

  38. pokewafl on April 30, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    The absolute lack of people on the Angel’s Landing rock scramble is astounding. I went last year and had to turn around 2/3 of the way there because there were so many people crowding the chains it was getting dangerous.

  39. MTBWay on April 30, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    my butt clinched at 25:31 …LOL

  40. Roxy Pinson on April 30, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    Tacos de buche and tripa are authentic mexican tacos, also mole. We make mole from scratch and the sweet taste is from chocolate.

  41. kent barker on April 30, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    hey man. love the vids. i’ve seen all of them. if i wasnt such a broke d%ck be a patron. altho i cant believe you made a trip like this and pretty much bypassed the rockies. maybe it was a time or financial constraint,but man i lived in the rockies and it so awesome. anyway,good stuff

  42. Aj M on April 30, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    I’m a lifelong albuquerque resident and you seriously saw the touristy bullshit here. Come back and see real albuquerque. There are some amazing spots not in old town.

  43. l catalla on April 30, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Great video! Have you guys thought about hiking the Yosemite all the way to the top.

  44. Melissa Poole on April 30, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    I knew Edward Abbey’s son, Joshua Abbey, who lives in Vegas. Hiked with him many times. Knowledgeable man about all these areas. Also binge watching this weekend!

  45. Carter Wale on April 30, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    Go to Glacier National Park

  46. Explore More of the Journey on April 30, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    What’s up guys! I just completed my Angels Landing film! I really enjoyed your take on it! Unfortunately, I did not get to experience The Narrows. Check out my short here:
