The Mountains Are Calling and I Must Go

Costa Mesa, California

Dear Family and Friends:

Here is a video featuring some of my favorite mountain photographs from 20 years of hiking, trekking and climbing.

I hope this video inspires you to go into the mountains soon.

Please watch this video on a large screen television or monitor and in a darkened room.


(all photographs taken by Bill Burke, teammates and, in the case of Burke Khang, a professional photographer)

  1. Great montage of images, Bill. Especially enjoyed the fantastic perspectives of Burke Khang. Wow!
    Due to C-19, I’m doing a lot of solo hiking. Have been atop Baldy 8 times so far, this year. When I slog up the steep Register Trail, legs burning and lungs heaving, I take inspiration from you and can continue upward! k;-)

  2. Great pics and music. I couldn’t help but think of Puchhanga when the Everest south side pics came up. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks Bill for the slide show of your memories. So proud of your accomplishments. I was in the Sierra’s last week with family, Silver Lake to Tuolumne Meadow. God is good and has given all of us such beauty in the outdoors

  4. Beautiful and inspiring Bill. Great job! Can’t express in words how badly I need to go to the mountains for that spiritual experience again. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Totally beautiful photos! I am proud of your worldly adventures, at times I was also feeling the mountain summits with you! Thanks for sharing!!! Congratulations on the Eight Summits!!!Plus… <3
