While camping along the wild coast of South Africa, I stumbled upon this boulder. After watching the storm surge against it for awhile, I spotted what looked like a somewhat dry climbing line—a series of salty knobs on the backside that looked worth a shot.
Setting up the camera on an interval timer, I wandered out to explore. Pulling up through the steepest section, I saw a giant wave crash against the rocks to my left.
We found this half-frozen pond in the North Cascades that beckoned to be skimmed. Drew Tabke, the former Freeride World Tour champion booted up, and I threw on my wetsuit and grabbed my underwater camera housing.
I stopped at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah, on my way from Ohio to California. Because there are so many images of this famous landmark—most of which are taken at the same angle—I decided to get a different perspective. I couldn’t believe how dark the sky became at night.
The small town of San Martin de los Andes sits on the shores of Lago Lácar in northern Patagonia. The lake stretches more than 20 miles and is a popular spot for overnight kayaking missions by local Argentines and tourists alike.
To get this shot, I followed one of these expeditions with a drone. In a region famous for wind, it's always nice to be able to fly my drone.
Travel outside of New Zealand and you might not find many folks who have heard of St. Bathans or its stunning Blue Lake. The Southern Hemisphere’s deepest man-made mining hole formed the gold-sluicing days of the late 1800s and was filled with water in the 1930s.
As a location for stand-up paddleboarding, the world’s fastest growing sport, Blue Lake is pretty hard to beat. The waters were glassy still as we circumnavigated the shoreline, paddling beneath the lake’s white clay cliffs. Then it was back to the tiny townships’ reputedly haunted Vulcan Hotel for a restorative ale.
With only ten permanent residents, modern-day St. Bathans is a far cry from the 2,000-person boomtown it was at the height of the gold rush. But this historic village still attracts plenty of visitors looking for a pleasant escape amongst its sleepy buildings, easy walking tracks, and hidden camping spots.
