Confirmed. Life on the rock is much better than life under a rock. Spot the climber (@devin__meade) living his best life! ⠀ Stoked for another desert rock climbing trip (this time to Utah) next month ⠀ The sandstone cliffs at Red Rock, thousands of feet high, are made up of the Aztec Sandstone. This formation, almost 200 million years old, is made from lithified* sand dunes that formed in a vast desert that covered a large part of the southwestern US during the Jurassic time ⠀ ⠀ *Lithification is the process of changing unconsolidated sediment into sedimentary rock. The red part that you see is actually rust! Exposure to the elements caused iron minerals to oxidize (rust) resulting in red, orange, and brown-colored rocks ⠀ Not all things that are rusty are bad I guess! . . . . #rock #climbing #USA #trip #redrocks #desert #america #rockclimbing #nevada #lasvegas #OptOutside #BeBoundless #Sonyalpha #instagram #geology #GoProTravel #GoProOfTheDay #natgeoYourShot #natgeo #watchThisInstagood #YourshotPhotographer at Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas

What a beau’thaw’ful day to be alive. Here’s an in-depth look ⠀ Temperature is rising and ice is melting. The smell of the upcoming spring is in the air. May be a bit early for lake paddling here at The Rockies. But there’s just something about ice-filled lakes that has another dimension of beauty of its own. ⠀ . . . . #SUP #paddle #standuppaddle #lake #banff #GreenGreyWhite #AlpineClubofCanada #Live4Snow #OptOutside #BeBoundless #GoPro #GoProTravel #GoProOfTheDay #natgeoYourShot #natgeo #watchThisInstagood #YourshotPhotographer #AllAboutAdventures #YYC at Banff National Park

It was 55 °C that day, did it feel hot? Yes. But was it breezy? Yes. Did we get sand all over our faces and nostrils then it sticks to our sunscreen? Yes. I dune'not where I'm going with this. Just gonna let this one slide... ⠀ Oh wait my point was it was fun. Regardless the element. They say “The happiest people don‘t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything”. Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday! #Grateful . . . . . . . . . #slipandslide #sand #edition #slipeandsand #desert #sand #dunes #Qatar #OptOutside #arabian #hill #middleeast #camelride #camel #dune #doh #instagram #travel #Wanderlust at Arabian Desert

Sea’nchronized em’oceans: Two things were running through my mind when I took this photo. ⠀⠀ 1. Seasickness 2. Fascination ⠀⠀ . It was Day 4 of this trip and we were on our way to Gourdin Island, home to three colonies of different species of penguins. On our way there we encountered a leopard seal, the most ferocious seal in Antarctica, going after a penguin ⠀⠀ After a bit of a chase, the seal finally got its powerful jaws and long teeth on the flightless bird. Biting off the penguin’s feet, making it helpless and unable to escape. The way it eats a penguin is by first biting the head off. Then followed by beating the victim‘s body across the water surface, smashing it several times (in/out of the water) to get its skin peeled off. This process took numerous turns but eventually, the dead bird is left down to its flesh. Basically flipping the penguin inside out down to its meat before starting to devour it. ⠀ May not be your ‘cup of tea’ type of story, especially when it's related to death of a Happy Feet. But this is nature. It's real. It's raw. And truly fortunate to be able to witness this in their wild environment. Even though I had a terrible case of the seasickness from the rocking-Zodiac off the wavy ocean. I couldn’t take my eyes of the scene. ⠀ Worth spewing my guts out in your opinion? 🇦🇶 . . . . 🇦🇶 . . . . . . . . . #zodiac #boat #ride #exploration #iceberg #ice #wildlife #seal #instagram #penguin #Antarctica #Polar #Expedition #Continent7 #OptOutside #wildlife #penguins #GoPro #GoProTravel #GoProOfTheDay #natgeo #natgeoYourShot at Antarctica

....More like Polar VorFLEX 💪🏽 ⠀ John taking the opportunity to soak up the sun as much as possible last weekend where our region was hit with an “Extreme Cold Conditions”. Temperature was hovering close to -40 C but the cloud-free sunny skies made it bare-able. This must have been our Plan D for the day and we were pretty pessimistic about getting any climbing laps in. Safe to say, it turned out to be much better than anticipated.

Wheelie fun day on the snowy trail ⠀ Shout out to Kananaskis Outfitters @KanOutfitters for having these sweet fat bikes ready for us. They’ve got all the gear you need and the best part? They’re located right in the mountain sides for your convenience. ⠀ Action Vs. Reaction Sports? ⠀ Majority of my activities have been an “action”-based type of sports from climbing, lifting and paddle boarding. This winter I have truly tried to step out of my comfort zone to try out more of a reaction-based or “reaction” type of sports such as skiing and snowbiking. I must say I feel that I have more control doing active-based sports because it’s what I’m used to the most and you are in charge to determine the next consecutive steps or moves. In my mind, you don’t have the same amount of control doing reaction-type sports as it require tremendous cognitive processing in order to react fast, given the rapid-changing situations that’s being faced ⠀ I hope that by incorporating more of reaction-based activities will contribute to me being more of a balanced well-rounded athlete. Training the mind is important to process visual information more quickly, read body movements more effectively and maintain focus for longer periods of time. With enhanced visual processing abilities, one may be able to react more quickly in crucial situations and maximize their physical potential......besides all these points, what’s more important is that it’s so much FUN to go down the hill on ski/snow bike etc 😊. The only regret I have is not starting sooner! | 📷@lmigrino for the rad snap 👌🏽 . . . . #winter #biking #fatbiking #snow #riding #trail #sports #bike #OptOutside #BeBoundless #GoPro #GoProTravel #GoProOfTheDay #natgeoYourShot #natgeo #watchThisInstagood #YourshotPhotographer #AllAboutAdventures #YYC at Kananaskis Country

Oh yeah, life bow's on... ⠀ Can’t wait to go back on a kayak-portage camping trip to this very spot again. This lake is the longest lake in the Canadian Rockies at 22.5km and also the second largest glacier-fed lake in the world. ⠀ When I think one of my favourite outdoor experiences, it brings me back to a memory of this place (hoping for a much better weather this time round).

Take me down to the parad’ice city where the grass is...snow-covered and the views are pretty ⠀ Oh why won’t you please take me home 🎵 ⠀ Currently taking a brief hiatus from ice climbing to focus on the other winter activities. But as the great Arnold would say “I’ll be back!” . . . . . . . #iceclimbing #mountains #adventure #climbing #GreenGreyWhite #AlpineClubofCanada #travel #wanderlust #climbing #OptOutside #BeBoundless #yyc #winter #nature #season #icicle #winter #fun at Rocky Mountains

Larch'er than life ⠀ These cold-climate larch trees only grows in the northern parts of N America, Europe and Asia. The needled-conifers-deciduous trees are lush green in the spring and summer, but in autumn it turns golden yellow and drop to the ground. The reason for this is that they are saving nutrients to use later, as temperatures cool and days grow shorter. The chemical machinery in the needles that photosynthesize (or creates sugars from CO2, H2O and sunlight) start to break down and those chemicals (mostly nitrogen) are stored elsewhere in the tree...that was my homework this week to look it up 😅 ⠀ Fascinating. How something that only lasts for about a couple of weeks in 365 days can be so beautiful. Perhaps life does what it does to us to emphasize one thing. That no matter how beautiful, every probability curve needs to have an end. For the purpose of something 'larcher' than life. . . . . . . #larch #tree #sun #GreenGreyWhite #AlpineClubofCanada #OptOutside #BeBoundless #GoPro #GoProTravel #GoProOfTheDay #natgeoYourShot #natgeo #watchThisInstagood #YourshotPhotographer #AllAboutAdventures #YYC at Nárnia

Your honour, we plead “Gili-T”. For having too much fun ⠀ Reminicing sunset in the island of Gili Trawangan (Gili T). Gili T is part of the 3 Gili Archipelago Islands in the province of West Nusa Tenggara. Automobiles and motorised vehicles are prohibited on the islands by local ordinance, so the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or the horse-drawn carriages |📷@mclachlancat1 . . . . . #sunset #beach #ocean #water #beboundless #Gili #GiliTrawangan #GiliT #Lombok #province #island #Indonesia #Asia #Islands #SouthEastAsia #SEA #tropical #summer #beach #jungle #rainforest #TheBaliBible at Gili Trawangan

Strand’ed on a deserted ice’land ⠀ I haven’t heard the term Polar Vortex until I moved to Canada. Granted, I’ve been living in very close proximity to the equator for the majority of my life. Basically, for those who’s not familiar it is an area of low pressure surrounding both of the Earth’s poles that keeps the cold air trapped in the North ⠀ With a temperature range that can solidify Vodka, I hope everyone is getting the cuddles and warmth they deserve | 📷@gaofiore . . . . . . . . . #WHPResolutions2019 #polarvortex #glacier #alpine #iceclimbing #mountains #ice #weekend #activities #adventure #climbing #WorldHealthAthlete #GreenGreyWhite #AlpineClubofCanada #travel #wanderlust #climb #OptOutside #BeBoundless #yyc #winter #nature #season #icicle #winter #fun at Polar Vortex
