Photo by @chrisburkard Winter in Yosemite represents a stark contrast from the usual summertime humming of the valley. It essentially turns into a ghost town of granite and snow, but there are few places I would rather be in the winter. It presents seemingly endless opportunities to ski tour and explore the towering cliffs with a completely fresh perspective. @kcdeane


Photo by @coryrichards // Mountaineer Adrian Ballinger seen here acclimatizing in the foreground of Ama Dablam. Many that have witnessed her beauty trekking to Mt. Everest basecamp find her to be the most exquisite peak ever seen. #followme @coryrichards as I post unseen footage from this 2016 expedition leading up to my next attempt on Everest: a new route, with out supplemental oxygen nor Sherpa support, in a single push. #adventure #climbing #everest #mountains #mountaineering at Himalayas

Photo by @fred_pompermayer Winter also a time to go outside and explore. You can find a peace in this winter wonderland at Yosemite National Park, California and also adventure without too many people around. #yosemitenationalpark

Photo by @donaldmiralle // Paragliding in front of a golden sunset at one of my favorite stretches coastlines in the Golden state of California. Although I’ve traveled the world taking photos for the last 25 years, being born and raised native Californian, I’ve lived my entire 45 years here and there is no other place I would want to call home. #tbt #throwback #sunset #california #ca at Black's Beach

Photo by @coryrichards // It’s sometimes hard to grasp the enormity of Everest, especially in the world of mobile technology. Two mountaineers (the specks in the upper right of the frame) help give scale to the view before them. #follow @coryrichards for more #everest #adventure as he posts raw footage from previous expeditions. #summitstories #mountains #cold #climbing #mountaineering at Himalaya
