Photo by: @taylormichaelburk and concluding the @duvine journey across the Dolomites, @bowenjr. Adventure can mean a lot of different things. Small or large, crazy or mellow depending what you seek. But for us, cycling across Italy meant experiencing the landscape with our lungs on steep climbs, adrenaline on descents, and sore legs that reiterated each night how far we've come. The unique smells of fresh forests, rivers, lumber mills, bakeries, and coffee shops. Food that varied by region, community, and elevation. By the time we made it to Trieste we were looking at ourselves and the world with fresh new perspectives.
Photo @andy_best // In a few days I'll be revisiting this gorgeous country. It'll be a mission to go deeper than just the surface. To see and hear more from locals on how our wild places aren't as wild as we'd like them anymore. To do that we'll be going into uncharted territory, telling stories of ancient history while covering vast distances of the remote landscape. My local guides will be sharing their world through their lens. See, I believe Iceland is the perfect case study for how our world is changing and why it's more important than ever that we wake up and cherish these special places. #leaveabettertrace
On our recent recent humanitarian-mountaineering expedition to Peru, with my daughter @lilliana_libecki, we learned about the three rules/greeting of the Incas, particularly from Machu Pichu/Sacred Valley history: 1) Don't steal - Ama sua. 2) Don't lie - Ama llulla. 3) Don't be lazy - Ama quella. If we all lived by these three rules our would be a better place. Here is a moment after our humanitarian work in the village of Pashpa, on our way to Ishinca Valley and the Cordillera Blanca, Peru...a local woman gathering a fresh snack for her cows...we were enchanted by the chilly breeze and rustling ripe wheat in the last light of the day. #joyineering#whyrationpassion
Photo by @max.lowe // First snow is flying in The Rockies and fall is on our doorstep, but I can't help but think back to those dog days of summer. @forestwoodward taking the plunge only a few short weeks back while backpacking in The Wind Rivers.

Two climbers making their way across a seemingly endless sea of rock and snow. Deep in the backcountry of the Alaska Range. •
There's long been a debate about whether or not you should have human form in your 'landscape photos' . But, for me, in places this big and vast, I personally love the scale that these small climbers bring to the image. @sanctityofspace
Photo:@andy_mann // @ethan_pringle commits to the crossing. Another unseen obstacle along the coast of Southeast Greenland. Bring not much of a jumper myself (landing is more my weakness) I chose to roll up the pants and take the icy cold traverse around.

Photo @ChrisBurkard We rely on the ocean power sometimes to produce glimpses of nature’s rawest moments. Hurricane Marie brought the largest hurricane-related surf to the coast of California in decades. During rare occasions like this surf will hit locations where you’ll never see a wave break. The ocean’s current and waves from a big swell will produce sandbanks in certains spots kicking out new peaks. We were able to shoot this spot at sunrise and for the fisherman, the worst thing is seeing perfect waves on your way to work.
Photo @andy_best // It's all about the personal journey, the thrills, and positive connection we gain from the wild. It's more than incredible to experience these wonderful places we call 'our' parks, 'our' home, or 'our' land. Never forget to give back in any way possible. #leaveabettertrace
Photo: @mikelibecki 🏻 Another part of our magnificent global family...a quite handsome walrus in the 192-island archipelago, Franz Josef Land, Russia...while on the way to find and climb the northernmost big-walls on the planet at 81 degrees north...bowing down to Mother Earth once again... #joyineering#whyrationpassion
Photos by: @taylormichaelburk // @bowenjr with an update from the bike // The @duvine journey across Italy hits day 4 as our bodies, although exhausted, start to adjust to the constant grind. Yesterday we rode east over the Stelvio Pass, an 80+ switchback road remnant of the Austrian Empire and famous to pro cycling races. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today we're riding three more passes: Costalunga, Pordoi, and Falzarego. Another huge 10k+ of vert. gain while enroute to Cortina. #werenotproswejustlovetobike

Photo @fred_pompermayer One of the most remarkable wave in Tahiti, called Teahupoo. This is @manoa_drollet on the biggest swell of the year on November 2007.
Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto // Remembering those days when chasing the absurd worked out better than you could ever imagine. Athlete @gavinmcclurg flying into no man's land in the Sierra Mountain range.
Video by @celinserbo // Some aerial views of the Fall colors around Aspen, Co from 2016. It happens quickly and the peak is so brief but what a show.
: @krystlejwright // Fleeting light as a storm brews over the Tarkine wilderness in Tasmania.
Photo @max.lowe // Our camp on the lapping edge of Ross Lake in the Wind Rivers was just one part to the mind blowingly awesome 4 days we spent chasing the dark star that appeared across the US this last June 21st. Check out my profile to see more photos and stories from our adventure chasing the totality.
No chairlifts, roads, or other souls for miles. You can see why the wild of Alaska's Denali National Park is a playground for those with penchant for adventure. @sanctityofspace
Video by @bertiegregory.
Killing time by filming bubbles on a scuba diving safety stop can often yield weird and interesting shots! Spot my camera's reflection in the biggest bubble. Follow @Bertiegregory for more underwater adventures!
Photo by: @taylormichaelburk // For the next few days, resident Nat Geo cartographer, @bowenjr, is riding ~400 miles across some of the greatest routes the Dolomites in Northern Italy has to offer. After all is said and done they'll have rode two times the height of Mt. Everest. Challenge accepted and the newly acquainted @duvine crew couldn't be more excited. Follow along for the journey and enjoy the ride.
Day 01, en route up the Passo Gavia from Tirano to Bormio.
Oh Mother Earth, it's an honor and privilege to be one of your children and experience your magic, power and beauty! Midnight in August embraced from a remote paradise of Eastern Greenland... #joyineering#whyrationpassion
: @krystlejwright // The blue hour is by far my favourite time of day to shoot as the slightest hint of light stays in the atmosphere and adds subtle highlights to textures like the Salt Flats in Utah.
Photo @andy_best // It's the hurry up and wait game that I love about fishing. The excitement of getting to where you're going, then the heart pounding anticipation of the looming catch.
Photo- @andy_bardon /// We're back in the monsoonal flow in the western mountains. Snow is forecasted for the peaks, and the seasonal transition and inevitable change continues. Colder temps, crisp autumn leaves, and frosty mornings are arriving. I for one welcome the change. Bring it. /// World Cup alpine ski racer @resistiegler embracing the change in her own backyard.
