These mountains formed over hundreds of millions of years as two tectonic plates collided and pushed the earth upward. Glaciers then continued to shape the rugged peaks and deep valleys. This process has created some of the most iconic landscapes in North America, like Jasper National Park, pictured here. I also recently learned that Northern Canada is one of the few places on earth where something else extremely rare has formed. In the earth's mantle, deep beneath the surface, over billions of years and under an immense amount of pressure, the hardest natural material known to man is created—diamonds! Over time, these precious gems have been brought to the surface in magma from volcanic eruptions, forming Kimberlite pipes where diamonds are found. Today, these diamonds are mined in sustainable ways that you might not expect: mining companies use efficient methods that recycle water, protect 3x the land used for mining, and pay workers on average 5x the living wage in their countries. Now more than ever it’s important to understand where our resources come from and how we can help protect these places for future generations to come. @realisadiamond

Glacier National Park

Expectations vs Reality. With countless waterfalls, peaks, animals, wildflowers, vistas, etc this place can feel like a dream! But it can also feel like Disneyland with most parking lots filling up by 9 am, traffic on the roads and trails, long lines for the bathroom, extremely hard to get campsites and backcountry permits, etc. This is the reality of a lot of National Parks and beautiful places around the world these days, just plan ahead and have realistic expectations!

Glacier National Park

Considered The Crown Jewel of the Continent— Glacier National Park, Montana.

Glacier National Park

I spent the last few days in Glacier National Park with @lexielimitless. Being with someone who has literally traveled to every country in the world, it was cool to show her some places she hadn’t seen right here in the USA. Lots of inspiring conversations, some good laughs and plenty more adventures to come!

Glacier National Park

The sketchy 2,000 ft (600m) drop on both sides was a little more intimidating knowing I would have to navigate it back in the dark. After scrambling down these cliffs I would still have a few hours of hiking through grizzly bear territory on a small mountaineering trail that was hard to follow even during the day. I’m not sure which part scared me more haha. What would scare you more? Solo adventures in Glacier National Park.

Moab, Utah

An image from Moab, Utah with @ridecake and @goalzero. To celebrated their 10 year anniversary, Goal Zero decided to do a road trip through the Western US connecting with all kinds of awesome people and doing some pretty incredible things. As an ambassador and advocate for over 6 years I was super excited to meet up with the crew in one of my favorite places and ride these electric dirt bikes through the desert. Head over to see the “Ode To The Road” video series from their trip. More content from this adventure coming soon! Image details- Camera- @nikonusa Z7 14mm 25 second exposure f/2.8 ISO 6400

Northern Canada

The landscape in Northern Alberta, Canada is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen. From my first time seeing the northern lights and attending the annual Dark Sky Festival to this incredible canoe trip, I always leave with a new sense of wonder and appreciation for this magical place. As it turns out, Canada is one of the countries in which the diamond mining industry has had a positive impact on land and water conservation. Leading diamond producers protect 3x more land than they use for mining, and recycle 83% of the water used during the process. That means landscapes similar to the one above will be around and untouched for generations to come. Huge thanks to @realisadiamond for reaching out and inspiring me to become a little more educated on such a large and important topic.

Kelly Slater Wave Co. Surf Ranch

Right after backpacking in Yosemite, I had the chance to visit the world-renowned Kelly Slater Surf Ranch and luckily my friends at @hippytree came out to document my day. This wave is actually quite challenging to surf and there is an immense amount of pressure when it’s your turn and all eyes are on you anxiously waiting for the next wave. But what a dream come true to surf perfect waves all day and to be part of something that has revolutionized the sport of surfing forever. 🙌🏼🙏🏼 @hippytree

Torrey Pines Gliderport

Yesterday’s view while riding the ocean breeze up and down the coast for hours. It’s been super fun playing with new cameras and new perspectives. 🙃 Location: San Diego, CA with Scripps Pier in the distance.

The Moon

50 years ago today, we landed on the moon for the first time! When I look up, it still blows my mind that we were able to accomplish this, let alone with computers less powerful than the device you are currently holding in your hand. But since then (1969), the human population has more than doubled. And sadly, the wildlife population has declined by 60%. Those facts are incredibly scary! …What will the next 50 years look like? Every one of us has the power to make a difference, let's continue to dream big and aim for the stars! Video- shot with my iPhone looking through a telescope🔭. Photo- Zoom in to see the rocket emoji I placed where Apollo 11 landed 🚀. These were shot 2 nights ago while hanging out with my good friends @gibsonpics and @cosmonaut_lauer here in San Diego.
