outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: When I visited the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park I was in awe. The colors were surreal, but I knew that something this “Grand” could only be appreciated from above. I called a local pilot and flew overtop. It's this perspective that really sticks with you. Patterns, colors, and shapes come alive that you could never see from the ground. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 9h

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: The set of a thousand western films and the Marlboro Man himself. Monument valley will forever be etched in our minds as a classic piece of Americana. But when a local cowboy offers to take you on a tour of the valley you can guarantee you are going to see things you'd never find in any John Wayne movie. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 11h

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: Zion's slot canyons run deep into the heart of Utah and there is more to find then just dinosaur playgrounds and ancient logs. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 14h

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: Tunnel view in Yosemite is like an addiction. You cannot help but stop and stare. Even those who call the valley home still find time to watch over this marvel of a landscape. It's as if the quotes of John Muir and the pictures of Ansel Adams intersected in one place to create a indescribable feeling of wanderlust. Nowadays you are more likely to see selfie sticks and tour bus’s littering the parking lot but this view will still pull at your heart strings. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 1d

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: The Oregon coast has always intrigued me. Maybe it's from countless reruns of the movie Goonies as a kid, but I have always loved how quickly you can go from getting lost in a rainforest or on a steep coastal cliff, to ending up with miles and miles of open beach. There is nothing quite like the Oregon. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 2d

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: Washington provides two peaks over 14,000 feet and a dozen over 9,000. This was taken in the Cascade range right off of the PCT at sunset on a trip to climb the Golden Horn. Few mountain ranges in America offer this much diversity for climbing, skiing, and hiking right off the road. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 2d

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: It is always tough to get out of a sleeping bag when it's below freezing but this morning was more than worth it. As we packed up camp, we saw two deer swim from across the lake to Spirit Island. We decided to follow suit and as the kayaks hit the water we realized just how perfect of a morning it was. Mirror reflections laid out before us as we paddled forward. I can’t recall another place on earth that feels like Maligne Lake in Jasper, Canada. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 2d

outsidemagazine @chrisburkard: Joshua Tree National Park, California. The intersection of climbers, hippies, yuppies, and family caravans in a place that has more history steeped in Native American culture and climbing culture than almost any other national park. The beauty of Joshua Tree? There is a lack of water and stores, so what you bring in is what you got. And that's just how we like it. @chrisburkard | OutsideOnline.com 3d

outsidemagazine If you don’t follow photographer @chrisburkard, you should. And if you’re not planning on taking a road trip this year, we think this series of photos will change your mind. Over the next few days, @chrisburkard will highlight some of his favorite spots and inspire us to pack the bags and hit the road! Photo: "No road trip is complete without a couple of wrong turns. This photo is from Iceland a few years back on a surf trip the south east coast of the island. It’s pretty special to know that every dirt road leads somewhere epic, whether to the coast or to the peak of a mountain you honestly can’t go wrong, as long as you have 4-wheel drive." | OutsideOnline.com 3d

outsidemagazine Tofino-bred photographer @jeremykoreski set out to become a surf photographer, but his passion for nature has always brought him home to British Columbia. The untouched sections of forest, orca whales, salmon runs, and curling waves inspired his latest project, This is Nowhere, a collection of photographs in which Koreski reminds us that beauty exists in places we can’t easily see or access, and that it’s worth saving. Koreski has turned to Kickstarter (he already got it) for some help funding his book, which will be designed and printed in British Columbia. @jeremykoreski shares a few of his all-time favorite images and a preview of the book live on the site now. | OutsideOnline.com 4d

outsidemagazine The North and South Islands of New Zealand may as well be different countries, according to Wanaka photographer @camillarutherford_photography. Her backyard on the South Island is filled with massive peaks and lakes where you can see straight to the bottom. The North Island, by comparison, is dense, packed with jungle and volcanoes. Rutherford admittedly hasn’t spent much time exploring the North Island, so with the help of Tourism New Zealand and Classic Campers, she put together a trip to camp, explore, and ride the best trails the island has to offer. With two 1970’s VW camper vans filled with supplies and pro mountain bike riders, @camillarutherford_photography set out for two weeks of shredding and shooting the world’s most beautiful playground. | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 5d

outsidemagazine @sarahirenemurphy and @sdpnt did it. The duo left their desk jobs—Murphy as a textiles designer at Martha Stewart, and duPont as an interface designer at the agency R/GA—and hit the road. After a year on the move, they started the travel blog Miles & Miles, where they create stories on topics like adventure and fashion for such clients as American Express, Gap, and Condé Nast Traveler. More often than not, the pair is traveling off the grid in their trusted Toyota Tacoma, which they’ve outfitted with a sleeping platform, running water, propane stove, and auxiliary batteries. Murphy and duPont love looking for inspiration in how others take shelter in their respective landscapes. In doing so, they’ve stumbled on some of the world’s coolest structures, like this one in Newfoundland. Photo: @sdpnt | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 1w

outsidemagazine Most adventure photographers have an enviable travel schedule, and San Francisco–based @emilypolar is no exception. Enamored by India, having circled its borders on previous trips, Polar dedicated half of 2014 to the country, which she thinks of as “the grad school of travel.” A road trip from California to British Columbia, another through New Mexico and Colorado, and a few weeks in Sri Lanka (pictured here) and Bali topped off a year that would make anyone jealous. | Full gallery @ OutsideOnline.com 2w

outsidemagazine In July, 2014, conservationists and adventurers @firstcast, @travisrummel, and @gordonklco dropped into a mountainous fortress of old growth rainforest at the source of the Unuk River in British Columbia. Ten days and 100 miles later they floated into Burroughs Bay in Misty Fjords National Monument in Alaska having completed a first source to sea descent. The expedition was undertaken as part of production for the short film, Xboundary, which discusses the region’s transboundary rivers in light of an open-pit mining boom at their British Columbia headwaters. Downstream in Alaska, these rivers are the foundation of billion-dollar salmon and tourism industries, and residents are concerned over pollution risks posed to their economy and culture.
