A few weeks ago, the Internet started humming over the news that Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion—it was a great investment for such a talented tech team, it was a sign of the social media bubble, etc. What happens with Instagram remains to be seen, but for now, it's a great place to go inside the lives of some of the top adventurers in the world. (And to see Outside magazine's latest photos from Everest.)
Kelly Slater shares photos from inside a barrel. Scott Jurek snaps his latest meals and links to the corresponding recipes. Jimmy Chin takes a picture of his latest climb while on a break from the editing cave. Here's our preliminary list of the best adventure athletes on Instagram.
