I am a big mountain fan so I dream to see these places and more!
Save Place
73700 Bourg-Saint-Maurice, France
The Mont Blanc peak, taken during a 40 minute single cable car tour from the Aiguille du Midi...
Save Place
Mt. Whitney, California, USA
This was the view out of my tent opening as I went to bed early to prepare for my Summit bid on the Mountaineers Trail on Mount Whitney. Without another team in sight, and with Iceberg Lake all to ourselves, this was a great way to end the day.
Save Place
White Mesa, New Mexico 87053, USA
I love mountain biking! I am basically obsessed with the activity, have been racing for half my life, and spend the majority of my disposable income on bike related activities. I would do it every single day if I could and at times I do. There are...
Save Place
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Severely dehydrated, severely under-dressed, severely cold (the sum of these parts means, of course, that I am severely stupid) my travel partner and I dragged our sorry carcasses through the woods and over rocks in the dead of night in search of...
Save Place
Mt Si, Washington 98045, USA
About 45 minutes east of Seattle is the town of North Bend. Looming behind is the forested and craggy Mt. Si (4167 ft/1270 m); generations of hikers in the Puget Sound area have broken in their boots on this mountain. It's steep (an elevation gain...
Save Place
Toubkal, Morocco
Climbing Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in Africa not named Kilimanjaro, is a surprisingly convenient and doable adventure if you're based in Marrakech and looking to see the High Atlas (and burn some calories along the way!). You'll probably...
Save Place
Teton Village, WY 83025, USA
That's Cody Peak, considered out of bounds. And the skiing over there is pretty burly! To get there you must ski though the gates but don't let anyone catch you without backcountry gear. It's dangerous and locals will ball you out if your not...
Save Place
Roys Peak, Otago 9381, New Zealand
The guidebooks say this is a difficult trek but well worth it. After a huffing and puffing trek to the top of Roy’s Peak, I would most certainly like to concur. 11k in approximately 4-5 hours, a decent level of fitness is most needed for this...
Save Place
Old Rag Mountain, Robertson, VA 22743, USA
The spectacular views atop Old Rag Mountain in the Shenandoah National Park are worth the extremely strenuous scramble to the top. But be warned, this hike is quite popular, so it is a much busier trail. The earlier you go, the less likely you are...
Save Place
Mürren, 3825 Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
My best friend came to visit me in Switzerland, and I decided to take her to a place I hadn't visited yet and was at the top of my list: Mürren. Mürren is a tiny town situated above Lauterbrunnen Valley 15 minutes by train from...
Save Place
Peru
Arriving at the gate at 6:30am, I was extremley excited to see and explore this amazing place. I have been planning this trip for over ten years and the moment was finally here! After entering, the entire mountain range and ruins were covered in a...
Save Place
Mount Rainier, Washington 98304, USA
Enumclaw, Washington, is the best kept secret in all of Puget Sound. It is an "AFAR" small town at the foot of Mt. Rainier. 40 mins from Crystal Mountain (the biggest ski resort in the area) and 50 mins to downtown Seattle, it is the best...
