The fifth and final installment of the 'Paracosm Travel Diaries,' photographed by Sam LI and starring Jenna Lipps, has made its debut on C-Heads.

Beyond spectacular scenery, the series was imbued with a sense of love, honesty and friendship. Even with a broken foot, Lipps was a good sport throughout the remainder of the trip. Her perseverance and commitment is especially apparent in one photograph, as she crawls on all fours towards the sunset, intent on helping LI capture the perfect shot.

LI recalls the experience by saying, “In retrospect, this trip has brought us closer than ever. [...] I was sure road trips brought people closer but for several parts of the road trip it really put our friendship to the test. [...] But despite all the arguments we’ve had, for me, looking back I noticed each photo I took of her, in each moment, there was this mad love for her."
