John Borland (Coldclimb)

In short, my name is John Borland, and I am an adventurer. Included in the pages here are photos of the various places I've been and things that I've seen and experienced. Of course seeing such great sights in person is great, but sharing them with others is the icing on the cake, so take a look around and I do hope you thoroughly enjoy the content.

If you would like to purchase a print of a photo of mine, they're all readily available! Or if you'd like to arrange for something not available here, you can reach me at Thanks for visiting!

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." - Phil. 4:13
