Congrats to my brother @ahealthyguy for completing the #blackcanyon100k today in 10:59 minutes. Chances are this man was running when you got up this morning and finished about the time you were sitting down to dinner. Cheers to you brother.

Here is a peek at my film, “In the Shadows of Lions,” which is out on 2/27 via @matadornetwork. ⠀ In the intro, there are aerial shots with zebras and a giraffe running. These were captured from a hot air balloon on a telephoto lens, as I do not drone wildlife. The balloons don’t drop to find animals, so the only time you’re close to the ground is at the beginning or end of a flight, which is when I got most of my shots. The balloons quickly rise to 1,000 feet on regular flight paths, so it can legitimately be argued that they don’t disturb animals in parks/reserves any more than a bush plane or safari truck. ⠀ I watched the first rains bring the ungulates back to the Serengeti, and massive herds of zebras and wildebeest galloped around during our game drives. I saw a lioness with cubs, and on my last day, a leopard in a tree. Our guide stuck to the roads, but many others broke the law to get shots of the big cat. There were about FORTY Land Cruisers crowding the leopard and chasing it off road, with some guests yelling at their guides to get closer. While off road laws vary, you are not supposed to harass animals (or drive recklessly and destroy the habitat of other creatures). For viewings, the general rule is 1-2 vehicles per leopard, and 2-4 per lion. ⠀ The animals ARE habituated to cars, and IF the rules are being followed, it doesn’t affect their ability to hunt, sleep or care for their young. Most don’t even give rattling SUVs on the roads a second glance. However, this all changes when humans get too close. If you’re chasing down animals and subsequently endangering their lives for likes and ultimately, for financial gain via Instagram, that makes you an especially soulless human. If people call you out and you delete comments and keep the post up, which is what we all saw a few days ago, that’s even more disgusting. I am not opposed to droning wildlife for conservation purposes (herding or filming for a legit org/publication), but it must be done in an expert manner. Much of what’s on IG does not qualify, as the drone pilots know nothing about animal behavior or the environment. Know better, and DO BETTER — or get off this app.

Flash back to the chill times we had near the river. Long logging roads, that feeling when you’re filling up the last tank of gas you need before getting to where you’re going, and the quiet moments listening to the river pass you by.

One of New Zealand’s “Club Fields”, Temple Basin, is run by volunteers belonging to the associated ski club. While there is a lift to the top for your “beer and gear”, skiers are forced to hike the grueling ascent to the ski field. They then stay at the ski field in club housing until the beer runs out and then ski/hike back down to reality. Temple Basin Ski Field 🎿 Arthur’s Pass National Park

Part 1 of our Mexican mountaineering adventure to Iztaccíhuatl. Drove from Mexico City to the Izta-Popo Zoquiapan National Park and camped one night in the Paseo de Cortez ~11,000’ parking lot and the second at the La Joya Trailhead ~13,000’. Both locations are heavily trafficked by humans and coyotes alike and a great flat spots to camp before the climb. . . . #trailreport #trailbeta #ihaveaheadcold #exploremexico #rawmexico #valcano #weareactivevolcanos #takeahike #mountaineering #neverstopexploring #hgmexico #adventuretime #mountains #wanderlust #liveyouradventure #choosemountains #Izta #popo #popocatepetl #iztaccíhuatl #wearethewild #getoutstayout #bpmag #optoutside #rei1440project #seeyououtthere #ourwild   #allgoodneverbetter #traillife #highlife 📹: @mountainliar

They looked at me as if I had gone soft with age. Like I had lost my spunk or lost my wits. I will admit nonetheless I had quietened down, I started speaking less and thinking more. When I spoke it was with a purpose. I became humbled by the fact I had nothing to prove and in doing so I became suppressed, somewhat guarded. I had already learned to be patient, to observe, to feel, to be alive in a moment of mundane scrutiny and routines. But now I had learned to let actions speak louder than words, to not hold expectations for others. I learned to rely on myself and to trust my intuitions. I learned to be confident and to find happiness in myself. I did change but I didn’t go soft. This change was as internal as it was external, as bitter as it was sweet, I had become cold...... #getoutside #ibecame #optoutside #wearethewild #mythoughts #wordporn #getoutstayout #diamondbrandoutdoors #ncoutdoors #ncoutdoor_inc #winter #backpacking #change #growth

The Way... In Aztec mythology, Iztaccíhuatl was a princess who fell in love with one of her father's warriors, Popocatépetl. The emperor sent Popocatépetl to war, promising him Iztaccíhuatl as his wife when he returned. Iztaccíhuatl was falsely told that Popocatépetl had died in battle, and believing the news, she died of grief. When Popo returned to find his love dead, he took her body to a spot outside Tenochtitlan and kneeled by her grave. The gods covered them with snow and changed them into mountains. Iztaccíhuatl's mountain is called "White Woman". The route along this amazing volcano starts at the feet and follows her sleeping body. After ascending the knees (crux of the trail), you will traverse the legs to the belly and run up against this beautiful fin to get yet another glacier crossing. Izta has a few false summits: knees, belly, chest and head with craters and glaciers to cross along the way to the summit, her breast 😉. More pics and video of the adventure up soon. #exploremexico #rawmexico #valcano #weareactivevolcanos #takeahike #mountaineering #neverstopexploring #hgmexico #adventuretime #mountains #wanderlust #liveyouradventure #choosemountains #Izta #popo #popocatepetl #iztaccíhuatl #wearethewild #getoutstayout #bpmag #optoutside #rei1440project #seeyououtthere #ourwild   #allgoodneverbetter #traillife #highlife 📷: @ingagamst

do love rollercoasters? 🎢 me too. i lived close to an amusement park growing up and wanted to go every chance i got. 😍 they can be SO MUCH FUN! 🤩 butttt not all rollercoasters are fun 😅 especially when we experience them in our lives. 🙈 for many years i was on one of these myself, with my health. 😳 i would be good about it for a bit (maybe like 2 months) and then something would happen, life got too stressful and "busy" to keep it up, so i fell off. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and when i fell off-- i fell off harrrddd 🤦🏻‍♀️ i mean like pizza every other night with pints of ice cream in between. all junk, all the time. maybe i'd go for a hike once a week or something but other than that i was a couch potato. 🛋 eventually i'd find myself a few pounds heavier, and feeling like shit, so i'd start up the health rollercoaster again. but like clockwork, when life got crazy, i fell off again. 😅 i lived in this horrible cycle for over a decade. 🙈 until i found something better 🙏🏼 not another rollercoaster to ride, but an actual sustainable guide and the support i need to keep my health on track--no matter how crazy life gets. 🤩 this guide i speak of has helped me TREMENDOUSLY, but tbh becoming apart of a COMMUNITY of people bettering themselves has helped me more than anything else i've ever tried. 🥰 if you've been struggling to stay on track with your goals--community may be the thing you're missing. you don't have to live life on a rollercoaster of health. i promise there's a better way. and i'd love to share it with you. 🤗 if you've been AMAZING at staying on track to meet your goals... what has helped you? 👇🏼 • • #plantpowered #hippie #freespirit #hippielife #goodvibes #liveadventurously #longhairdontcare #optoutside #whatveganslooklike #womenwithmuscle #wildernessbabes #outdoorwomen #radgirlslife #sheexplores #mountaingirls #choosemountains #sheadventures #alpinebabes #wearethewild #nomakeup #coloradogirl #wellnessjourney

Posting ~*aesthetic*~ photos that I know no one else will be interested in, just cause I think it’s pretty 😂. Also there are 100% werewolves in this forest, it’s not even a hypothesis.

Mesa Verde National Park - this week’s national park feature 8/60. . One of Colorado’s four national parks, Mesa Verde has some of the best-preserved Ancestral Puebloan archaeological sites in the US. . ICONS: The park protects over 600 cliff dwellings, and Cliff Palace is the largest and most popular dwelling in the park. Long House is a village that once supported 150 people in the 1200s. Balcony House is a 45-room dwelling that visitors can enter by climbing a 32-foot ladder and crawling through a 12-foot tunnel on ranger-led tours. . THINGS TO DO: Learning about the heritage of the Ancestral Pueblo people that lived here for over 700 years is essential. With over 52,000 acres and 5,000 archeological sites, there is a lot of history to experience. Mesa Verde is open year-round, but some services are closed during the winter. There are also some great hiking trails in the park, including Petroglyph Point, Point Lookout, Soda Canyon, and Spruce Canyon — just be sure to stay on the trail! Note that Spruce Tree House is currently closed, but you can also visit the Mesa Verde Visitor and Research Center and drive the Mesa Top Loop Road for some beautiful views. . HISTORY: The Ancestral Pueblo people lived in the Four Corners region and began living in the area about 1,400 years ago. They built stone communities beneath canyon walls, but in the late 1200s left their homes and moved away relatively quickly. Mexican-Spanish missionaries visited the plateau region, but not the ancient stone villages, in 1776. Finally, a family of cattle ranchers received permission from the Ute tribe to bring their cattle into the plateaus in the 1880s, and the Ute tribe shared the location of the cliff dwellings with them. President Theodore Roosevelt established it as a park in 1906, and it became the largest archaeological preserve in the US. The creation of the park was not without conflict with local tribes home to the area. Today, there are 26 associated tribes that have a relationship with Mesa Verde National Park. .
