Top of the Alps! Yesterday in the early hours of the morning we summited Mont Blanc via the ‘Trois Monts Route’ and descended it via the ‘Goûter Route’. Amazing day in harder than normal conditions - a little vertical ice to gain a crevasse, 70 meters of 55 degree ice, a fair bit of exposure and steep terrain, and a lot of descent! 22km, 1772m gain, 2994m loss.
Is it possible to run towards something for a reason other than running away from something else? I’d like to believe so. I’d like to believe that it’s okay to have a good life and still run towards a greater one. I’d like to believe that the reason for setting things in motion doesn’t always have to be “because I’m not happy.” I’d like to believe that we’re allowed to fight for the kind of life we want, and not be judged because of the kind of life we already have. Because it’s okay to change. It’s okay to run. (Photo by @jack_andy18)

Magical days spent in the fjords of New Zealand, AKA Milford Sound 🌊
New Zealand quickly became one of my favourite places I’ve ever visited and I’m already itching to go back and explore this extremely diverse country!

For years climbing was the center of my life. It was how I spent my time, what influenced my travel plans and who made up my community.
For a while there I focused on climbing “hard”. It’s how I measured my “success” over everything else. It’s been about two years now since I’ve had any consistency in my climbing. I admit it’s daunting to even consider getting on some routes as my ego will be tested.
There are a few climbs that stand out in memory. But the best parts are usually just being in the mountains or deserts with good folks. Those shared moments between people who happen to all enjoy playing on rocks.
Here’s to another day of remembering it’s okay to do something just because it’s fun.

After miles of backpacking, summits, and sore feet, you really start to take inventory on your gear you take. There’s a couple things we don’t go without and that’s our packable Movi trucker hat as well as @peakrefuel - the best tasting backcountry meals and Utah-grown as well!

Thought my weekend was going to be centered around a backpacking trip. Now it’s probably going to look a lot more like this. But, to be honest, I’m quite ok with that. 📷: @lexishutters
The last two long runs I’ve done, I’ve gotten the same comment from different men: “wow, so strong!”
Now, the thing is, I’m an average runner/climber at best, but the comments were 💯 genuine - not in any way did I feel uncomfortable. In fact, it was the ultimate compliment. The first time, it was halfway through a 100km race, and that small comment got me through the rest of the race. I replayed it over and over, a little smile breaking through, almost believing it. The second time, was just an average run, but I wasn’t feeling like running any more hills, and the stranger’s comment completely changed my mindset for the better.
What ran through my mind both times though, was how something so small can make such a difference in someone’s day. Instead of commenting on my body, my face, or any other external thing, both of these strangers chose to compliment my strength, and that meant so very much.
So next time you compliment a stranger, consider their character, their drive, their grit, their kindness towards others - it means so much more than appearances.
Mt. Sneffels, San Juan Mountains 🏔 .
The Story: Located in Auyuittuq National Park, on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada ... the peak is named after Asgard, the realm of the gods in Norse mythology. This twin peaked mountain with two flat-topped, cylindrical, rock towers does not disappoint. (📸 @alpineedge)
It doesn't have a sound
But you must have heard it
Not with your ears
Or the three tiny bones inside
That you learned about once upon a time
But with your heart
You can't explain why you came
Except that you felt like you needed to
Hush, say the mountains
And you can feel it
A summoning that you couldn't quite place your finger on
Just a knowing that you were in the right place
An impulse, a nudge
And so you go, not really knowing why
Until you hear music
Which isn't really about the music anymore
Because it's about all the million steps
That brought you to this exact moment
And to this exact place
Of knowing that this music
Is for you. ❤️ Anastasia & Rose
One of many small oases to be discovered deep in Grand Canyon. Mostly I recently learned that oases is the plural form of oasis and felt like passing that info on.
Chilling in Ha Long Bay. 😎🇻🇳⛴ will surely come back there one day 🌍
Over the past few years I have had this constant feeling in summer that time is flying and I am not getting out enough. Having such a brief period to get up high and having to work and raise a family, I have a lot of self-imposed pressure to do it all. This summer I tried to take a step back and more or less just go with the flow. Not worry if I have to work a ton (which I have), or if I don’t get in as many peaks as I had on my list. It has been really nice not worrying about how everything works out and just taking life one weekend and adventure at a time. Somehow it feels that in doing so we have gotten out more than ever, despite weird weather and work and day to day necessary chores. My house is still never clean and I still rarely cook for my family but hey, we get a lot more time in the mountains because of it ✨👌🏻
I feel like my audience has changed so dramatically in the last year, and most of you only know me from my pics, so I thought I’d introduce myself on a more personal level and invite you to do the same! I’m all about using social media to be more social. •
My full name’s David Miles Rule, but if I lived in Canada, I’d be David Kilometers Rule•
I was born at a very young age, but now I’m 22. I’m hoping to be 23 by next year. •
I’m from Pinedale, Wyoming, which is a small mountain town just south of Jackson Hole. It’s insanely gorgeous here and an absolute paradise for photography. •
I’m 6’3” and the first thing people usually say when meeting me is “wow, you’re way taller than your face looks in your profile pic”. Umm....thanks? •
I finished a degree in Physiology & Neuroscience from the University of Wyoming, but I left my medical career behind to travel the world and pursue photo/video because life is short. It’s been the best decision of my life and I have no regrets. •
I’m an avid distance runner and swimmer. I’ve run multiple marathons, competed in triathlon during college, and I hold the record for a 9 mile swim across a lake in Wyoming. My next goal is to swim the English Channel and run a 100 mile ultra marathon. •
I can ride a 5’ tall unicycle, juggle fire, and do both at the same time. It’s a completely pointless skill, but I love clowning around regardless. •
I’ve been to 15 foreign countries, and my favorite so far has been Croatia, mostly because of my unhealthy obsession with swimming and cliff jumping. •
I have absolutely no sense of direction and get lost very easily. Ask anyone I’ve traveled with. I’m pretty sure I get lost at the grocery store half the time. •
Now I want to hear something about you! Leave a little bio or weird fact about yourself and I’ll reply to every single one. 😁
My wish for all of you is to visit Montana in a year of beargrass bloom. It only happens every few years and when it does, it is just simply magical ✨
Out of all the places I have been during my travels, Peru DEFINITELY makes it into one of my top five favourite countries ever.
The unique landscapes, amazing people, delicious food and of course... THE ALPACAS!... Just keep making me come back for more 🦙

I often laugh to myself about how little I actually wear “normal clothes”. These days I’m either at the yoga studio, on an outside adventure, or working from home so there’s literally no need for anything but athletic apparel. While the first year or so of daily stretchy or sweat pant freedom was pretty great, eventually I started to miss looking somewhat put together.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t see myself getting all dolled up on a regular basis but I’ve been loving finding outdoor gear that is functional and sturdy but also looks good. Lately I’ve been really loving all the things from @stiomountain . Everything I own of theirs (like this fleece and hat) is adventure ready but is also something I would totally wear around town or out to dinner.
@stiomountain is born and bred in the mountain town of Jackson Hole, WY so they’ve totally got the mountain look dialed and they’ve quickly become a staple of mine this summer. Have you heard of Stio? #lettheoutsidein#stiopartner (photo by @photograferg)
