Photo by @max.lowe | Sacred to the culture of tribes of the Northwest, the Potlatch is so much more than a sacred celebration. A way by which community is strengthened, relationships within the tribe are sured, and young people are brought into adulthood, these events are a cornerstone in the bedrock of how the First Nations People of the PNW have founded their societies for as long as memory serves
Photo by @kiliiiyuyan | A young Grizzly Bear chows on a sockeye salmon in Bristol Bay, Alaska. At this point in the fall, bears have stocked up on their winter reserves by eating as much fish as possible during the summer runs. Follow me, @kiliiiyuyan, for more from Alaska and beyond. #alaska#bear#bristolbay
Photo by @acacia.johnson | Cows graze on a mountainside near Grindelwald, Switzerland. This spectacularly scenic town, a gateway to some of Switzerland's most iconic mountains, is home to bountiful hiking and skiing opportunities. On a quiet September morning, there were few other hikers on the trail, and the music of cow bells filled the autumn air. Follow me at @acacia.johnson for more adventures in the mountains and on the sea. #switzerland#grindelwald#swissalps
Photo by @jimmychin | Morning commute on the staggering formation of Ulvetanna with @conrad_anker. Climbing with Conrad will never get old...and apparently neither will he. Ulvetanna, Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. #tnfantarctica17 For more mountain adventures around the world, follow @jimmychin.
Photo by @taylorglenn | The Middle Teton is framed by the walls of the Stetner Couloir. This image was made late in the afternoon while descending the Grand Teton in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. The color of light at this time of day is exquisite, blue hues of the shadows contrasting with the warm sun light. Nothing quite like winter in the mountains. Follow @taylorglenn for more from #Wyoming and beyond. #winter#grandtetonnationalpark
Photo by @renan_ozturk | Travel for me is often about the stripping away of creature comforts and immersing in a landscape or culture. @taylorfreesolo pictured here putting in the work required daily during our stay at our friend Eric Johnson's backcountry cabin. Eric uprooted his city life the last few years to fully commit to being the first year round resident in the valley high above Ouray CO in 100 years since the mining boom. If only we could all live such simple and efficient lives. ~ Check out @renan_ozturk for more form the fringes of the travel life

Photo by @paoloverzone | The Taubanesentralen, part of the former mining facilities in Longyearbyen Svalbard, Norway. The coal mining industry on Svalbard developed during the early 20th century. While working in Svalbard I was impressed by the beauty of this installations with the colors changing depending on the light. @thephotosociety #svalbard #norway #climatechange #arctic #longyearbyen #coal Follow @paoloverzone for more photos and stories
Photo by @max.lowe | Mt Yotei, one of the many massive volcanoes dotting the island of Hokkaido Japan captivates with is immense presence in the landscape as high clouds move in a blur across is steaming summit. Volcanos like no other construct on earth give me a sense of our scale in the grand scheme of the planet, these mouths to the core of our molten orb that is planet earth, revealed in natural ardor brings perspective to just how small we are in the scheme of geological time and place.
