Caucasus Mountains

Photos by Mihai Barbu

Mihai rode his 2WD Gear Up with his favorite co-pilots to explore the Caucasus Mountains, Black Sea beaches and some of the world's most breathtaking back roads.

The trip started, like most, with a few hours of highway. Their sidecar was packed camping gear, spare tire, 2 passengers and his son's toy sword; after all, you never know what you might encounter.

Soon Mihai and his co-pilots arrived in Ushguli, Georgia.  Ushguli is Europe's highest village sitting at 7,190ft. It's home to just over 200 residents who brave 6 months of snow a year.

The adventure continued as they quickly discovered some amazing mountain roads just outside the village.

These mountains are rarely visited by tourists, making the trip free of lines and kiosks.  It's just the ride and pristine views.

The roads winding through the Caucasus range can be difficult to navigate but luckily they're in relatively decent shape.

Day 1 in the books!  Time for a well deserved night under the stars.
