To get you up to speed, Blue Creek is a small, but important tributary of the Klamath River in Northern California. Local nonprofit Western Rivers Conservancy has partnered with the local Yurok Tribe to purchase of 47,000 acres of land surrounding the river to keep it just the way it is: unblemished, pristine, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous. In the final push last month, WRC teamed up with local creative agency Instrument to create a stunning video for its crowdfunding campaign to raise $5 million to purchase the remaining land

Last week, Portland-based photographer Andy Best, who helped shoot the original video, released his own gorgeous compilation of footage. Check it out above. It's definitely worth the two minutes.

And if you missed our earlier coverage of the campaign, fret not. There's still time to donate. Visit savebluecreek.com for more info.
