Built for the CCCX.

Three merchants by the names of Laurence, Watkins, and Ellerbee, were traveling to the city of Lyme by way of the high road. However, when stopping at a local inn, they were informed that a hostile army had camped on the road ahead. Dismayed by this information they inquired if any other route was to be taken on the way to Lyme. After hearing several different and ridiculous options, and consulting their map, they decided to take the trail through Deadman's Gorge... They later regretted their Ill-Advised Journey.


This is my first entry to the "An Ill Advised Journey" Category.

This build is inspired by many great builders around the community.  It's been a great first year guys! Thanks so much! :grin:  
Have a great day! :classic:

Brilliant as usual.  I always think of avalanche as referring to snow though I guess it can refer to rocks too..

Business as usual - another superb MOC from you. :head_back:  Unique idea, well executed. The unusual tree and your signature water design are my favourites here.

Nice design of the scene with an avalanche, however, my favourite is the tree on the left.
