The Palisades Range in the Eastern Sierra gives backcountry outdoorsmen/women the opportunity for some incredible sporting activities including skiing, hiking, and mountaineering. From the town of Big Pine, a hiking trail will take you straight to the Palisade Glacier - the largest glacier in the Sierra.
Big Pine, California is the gateway to some incredible sights in the Eastern Sierra. A drive up Glacier Lodge Road from town leads you to a trailhead that follows along Big Pine Creek. Follow the North Fork trail to Second Lake (13.5mi roundtrip) to be wowed with this view.

Our plan to climb Clouds Rest Peak changed drastically after I sprained my ankle in the backcountry. We luckily found this beautiful campsite and I spent the day resting / icing my ankle in frozen lakes 😳😂

"Mountain biking where nobody ever has via arctic sailing boat has it's challenges. Making sure you have a backup every step of the way doesn't have to." What gear would you bring on a remote sailing trip to Iceland?

#RoamMoment - Line of the winter! Throwback to @travisrice crushing while filming @depthperceptionfilm in the British Columbia backcountry with @cmh_heli last winter. Travis says, “Named this face Hydro Dojo as it was a place of study, and the type of mountain face filled with potentials…⠀
Dōjō is a Japanese term which literally means "place of the way”. Initially, dōjōs were adjunct to temples and were formal training place for any of the Japanese arts ending in "-dō", from the Chinese Tao, meaning "way" or "path”. Example-Judo. A proper Japanese martial arts dōjō is considered special and is well cared for by its users… Well cared by for its users…" Awesome, Travis!⠀

The view from Anacapa Island (pictured here) is often "the" shot most people think of when it comes to Channel Islands National Park. That being said, Santa Cruz is the most highly visited island of the bunch. Being isolated for thousands of years has provided all of the islands with their lack of development and urban infrastructure. You'll want to bring everything and anything you'll need when visiting these islands as there are no food stores, gear rentals, or water.

Channel Islands National Park boasts a fantastic range of activities including camping, hiking, scuba diving, spearfishing, and kayaking. Guided and solo kayaking tours through the sea caves are the most popular activity the park has to offer.

Channel Islands National Park encompasses 5 islands off the coast of Southern California. Santa Cruz is the largest island, followed by Santa Fosa, San Miguel, Anacapa, and Santa Barbara. Only around 30,000 visitors each year actually step foot on an island while the majority of visitors opt for viewing the islands from the water.
It may not look like much but these giant rock formations are the result of roughly 20 million years of erosion by the rough Southern ocean and blasting winds relentlessly carving out this sacred landscape 🙌🏼 PC: @temp.le

"The success of our Himalayan trip hinged on the team's ability to discover (for ourselves) as much terrain as possible - while creating and sharing those stories on-the-go. That meant slimming our kit down to the bare essentials, because when you're climbing at 19,000', every ounce matters. GNARBOX fulfilled all of our needs - enabling us to leave the laptops behind and thrive while creating in one of the most rugged environments on earth." - @ chrisbrinleejr

#RoamMoment - One of the most glorious moments I’ve ever experienced could only be accompanied by violins. A short excerpt from our trip to the Finger of God, Brazil. Thanks to an incredible @balancecommunity team for this experience and @rafazubi for this walk!⠀
>> Video and caption by @handsomerobinson. The Finger of God is a peak named after its resemblance to a hand pointing a finger up to the sky, standing at just under 1700m (5500ft) tall. It is also an unnerving yet stunning environment to set up a 323m long slack line. Music by Dario Marianelli.

Overlooking the epic rays of the sun above the Elk Mountains from Highlands Bowl. This spot provides a lesser-photographed view of Maroon Bells while offering some of the most intense skiing in the state of Colorado.

According to The Denver Post, Maroon Bells received over a whopping 320,000 visitors in the summer of 2017. The iconic mountains are situated above Maroon Lake which was once a glacier during the Ice Age.

The Maroon Bells in Colorado are a series of two peaks in the Elk Mountains that are frequently photographed sitting above Maroon Lake. The peaks are known as Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak, both reaching over 14,000ft in elevation.

Soaked and stoked 💦
It seems like most of my favorite waterfalls always involve jumping a fence to get to. That continued to hold true at Belmore Falls as there wasn't a true designated path going from the top to the bottom of these falls, so we had to get a little creative to find a way down! Just adds to the fun! 🙌🏼

"A PCT sunset from the Goat Rocks Wilderness in Washington. Wonder what this place looks like in the winter.."

Chasing sunrise has become a slight addiction, driven by the knowledge that magic will always happen. All we ever have to do is simply show up.

215 foot great fall in the woods is the highest single drop waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains.

This video took a lot of people by surprise. After 40 days of rock climbing this fall in remote Greenland, @ethan_pringle finally realized a lifelong dream...to sail off a giant iceberg on an inflatable piece pizza (of course). Surprisingly it didn't take too much heckling to get him up there either! What a great way to end a long and brutal expedition. When @ladzinski cut this short piece and posted it first to the @natgeo feed, I was like, “Dude, you can’t post this there, they are going to kill us!” Turns out even the most respected media source in the world has a sense of humor. They wanted more! Tag a buddy who doesn't have the guts to try this! ⠀⠀
>> This #bestofroam video took instagram by storm! Cheers to @andy_mann@ladzinski with @mikelibecki@connor_seybert for dreaming up this fun! @dell@mountainhardwear

Reflections captured at Bonneville Salt Flats, the remnants of a lake from the Ice Age. Lake Bonneville covered Utah and parts of Idaho and Nevada around 2million years ago.
