Photo by @ChrisBurkard @the.rabbits.foot taking to the air in the south of Nicaragua. While nowadays most of my trips involve sub freezing temperatures and remote locations, I would be lying if I didn’t say I look back fondly at these warm water trips. It’s pretty hard to beat surfing for hours in nothing but boardshorts.

It is remarkable that creatures like this can survive at this depth underground and in total darkness. Unfortunately, during the flood pulse a week later that suddenly plummeted into these chambers, the vile was lost and all of this gallery completely filled up with water and was totally submerged.

Video by @coreyrichproductions | A few years ago, I got a really unique opportunity to shoot 360-degree vertical “street views" of three of Yosemite’s best climbers climbing on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. That would be Lynn Hill (@_linacolina_), Tommy Caldwell (@tommycaldwell) and Alex Honnold (@alexhonnold) — all living legends who have done incredible things, to put it mildly, on El Capitan. Lynn did the first free ascent of the Nose (as well as first in a day free ascent), Tommy has free-climbed more El Cap routes than anyone else, including the Dawn Wall (the hardest one), and Alex became the first person to free solo El Cap in 2017, which is still hard to believe. Here, Alex Honnold is fully in his element, airing it out on one of the upper pitches of the Nose. This project was covered by @andrewbisharat for @natgeo when it came out (search for the full story at NationalGeographic.com). @brettlowell @joshlowell @mortimer_peter
Photo by @TimLaman // #sponsored by @bayerofficial // Researcher Cheryl Knott climbs a rope into the rain forest canopy in Borneo during a study of the unusual growth habits of the strangler fig tree, whose roots can be seen wrapping around its host in this shot. The rain forest canopy teams with plant and animal life and offers endless opportunities for adventurous scientists to explore. But access isn’t easy. First an arrow is fired launching a fishing line over a high branch 45 meters above the ground, and then a climbing rope is pulled up, which must be climbed with a harness and ascenders to gain access to this little-visited realm. // The challenges of the future are being worked on right now.

Photo by @pedromcbride (Pete McBride) // #sponsored by @bayerofficial // Years ago I traveled the entire 1500-mile length of the Colorado River. When I reached the delta, I was amazed to discover the river runs dry – forcing us to shoulder our boats the last 90 miles. The mighty Colorado River, that lifeline that carved the Grand Canyon and supports 40 million people, no longer reaches the sea. The science behind rivers and deltas repeatedly shows how these natural arteries support a wide spectrum of species from fish to birds, creating a web of biodiversity that sustains the food we eat -- and ultimately us. // The challenges of the future are being worked on right now.

Photo by @mikeylikesrocks (Mikey Schaefer) // #sponsored by @bayerofficial // The sheer northwest face of Half Dome sits on a pedestal, towering above Yosemite Valley and the Sierra Nevada. Its steep granite seemingly defies the laws of physics. Jimmy Chin tested the classical principles of the Gravitational Potential Energy equation, which states that an object’s energy is directly proportional to its height (Energy = mass * gravity * height). While dangling off Half Dome’s diving board, 2,000 feet above Yosemite Valley, Jimmy Chin (@jimmy_chin) found that increased height does lead to increased energy! // The challenges of the future are being worked on right now.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // Home Sweet Home! At -2100m (-6890ft) underground, the team’s lowest camp inside Veryovkina [cave] looks like this. After years of experience, the Russian explorers have devised a great system of staying warm and dry by cooking meals and boiling water on gas stoves inside the tent. The heat dries out all wet fleece clothing, whilst the outer suits hang on clotheslines outside (pictured). A week later, during the flood pulse that suddenly plummeted into these chambers, all of this gallery completely filled up with water and was totally submerged. The last of the Russian explorers had to quickly swim over this tent in order to evacuate the chamber as it rapidly filled up with water.
