Feeling inspired and alive after a day exploring the High Atlas mountains around Toubkal. During each visit here in Morocco we learn more about the rich artisan traditions and fall more in love with the beautiful textures and designs, as well as the history and people behind them.
Staying with the water theme… time-lapse video of the National Geographic Sea Bird descending The Dalles Dam on the Washington and Oregon border. This lock and dam system is one of more than 60 dams in the Columbia River watershed in the United States and Canada. The mighty Columbia River is a lifeline for the Pacific Northwest for power, transportation and most importantly….water.

I flew into Quito, Ecuador at 11:30 PM local time. Alone and a couple thousand miles from everything and everyone I knew, genuinely terrified of what I had gotten myself into. Everything-every mountain, every valley, every building and tree, was blanketed in a gold haze. I was awake late that night in a loneliness I had never felt, realizing that the decision I made was going to change everything that came after it.
Gibbons will always be one of my favourite primates to watch. Its like they plan there path 50 feet ahead, moving through the canopy with grace and speed. Taken in Danum Valley with #natgeoadventures#borneo#natgeoexpeditions

Such an amazing individual! It makes me very happy to see wild orangutans that do not associate people and danger. The orangutans that live around Borneo Rainforest Lodge have lived for a long time without exposure to poaching. This is Son, one of the dominant males that lives in the forest near the lodge. #natgeoadventures#borneo#natgeoexpeditions

A complex mix of factors have left his kind hanging on the very edge of extinction. A handful of passionate ecologists, scientists, and animal lovers are currently fighting an uphill battle to give them a little more time here. #borneo#natgeoexpeditions#savetherainforest#rhino
