Spent the last four days camping at this fantastic little spot which was only accessible by sea.

Tonight I am spending the evening packing up my camping essentials and tomorrow we hit the road! Watch out Chilliwack lake here we come. (at Waterton Lakes, Alberta, Canada)

THE VALLEY OF JOY // The valley so exceptional that it defines people’s characters. For us it is not a valley, it is The Valley. It is the place of freedom, looseness, inspiration and joy. Combining everything a man needs; pristine steep rivers, shear mountain slopes, rock walls, countless trails, unspoiled nature and good friends. We find it hard not to visit it every weekend. Situated at a sunny side of Alps it possesses a distinct atmosphere that brings people to sane and together.

Cover letters have to be just about the cruellest invention for modest people the world over. I hate having to upsell myself. But the round of applications I’m sending out now means potentially studying bees in Costa Rica, birds in Puerto Rico, or monkeys in Germany, so time to spend a day writing about how awesome I am and hoping my references back me up.

Only one more week in this beautiful place before I head back to the coast. #hiking #Waterton

24-year-old photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled to west Mongolia with the intention of documenting the lives of traditional Kazakh eagle hunters, people who tame eagles for the purpose of hunting smaller animals.

With the traditions typically laying in the hands of the boys and the men, the biggest surprise throughout the journey was Svidensky’s discovery of a young eagle huntress, 13-year-old Ashol Pan, the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter. These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.

I was an angel, someone’s sweet thing
with flowers in my hair
round the corner, flash of silver

Does it still count as backpacking if the backcountry cabin is equipped with mattresses, pillows, and a pantry that puts my own to shame?

Yesterday was epic. Lineham creek trail>Mt Blackiston>Mt Hawkins>Tamarack Trail>Lone Lake. Thank god for a comfy bunk in the warden’s cabin to end the night. #hiking #summer #Waterton
