Last week, we hiked through the amazing sights of the Pacific Northwest on an unforgettable trip sponsored by Corning Incorporated, known for their incredible Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4. The glass is found on a number of mobile devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S6, which we used exclusively on our trip.
It’s Corning’s toughest glass cover yet – and we’re testing that toughness as we scale mountains, hike through lava caves and explore other “tough drops” around Oregon and the Pacific Northwest
I took on the adventure with an elite team of travel influencers, including Mariellen Ward of Breathe Dream Go, Teri Johnson of Travelista Teri and JD Andrews of EarthXplorer. We were known as the “Gorilla Glass 4” (we even had jackets).
Our mission was to share the amazing wonders of the Pacific Northwest, and to see if we could capture it all using only a Samsung Galaxy S6 phone. You’ll have to see for yourselves if we did the gorgeous region justice.
We talked so much about “tough drops”, but we never forgot the small things, either
We’ve learned so much on our tough drops adventure with Corning Gorilla Glass. We tested our physical limits on Mount St. Helens and Smith Rock. We scaled gravity-defying heights at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse and the Astoria Column. And we even went deep into the depths of the Devil’s Punch Bowl and the Lava Caves. Since Gorilla Glass 4 performs up to 2x better than competitive glass design in devices dropped from 3 feet high, we wanted to make sure our main focus was on high places, big landscapes, and fabulous feats.
However, that doesn’t mean we ignored the small stuff. In fact, one of the greatest pleasures of traveling with our Samsung Galaxy S6 devices was its incredible ability to capture even the tiniest of objects using its macro function. You would think we were working with professional DSLRs, not phone cameras, the way some of these images turned out.
With this in mind, we’re concluding with a final post similar to the one we started with – a photo journey through some of the incredible sights we’ve encountered throughout our trip. This time, however, our photos chronicle the tiny wonders that we came upon. The ones only the clearest glass can capture. Those are the photos we are sharing with you.
