A few days ago, @janinepatitucci and I spent the night up high in the Alps, all alone at the base of the Jungfrau. As we were getting ready to leave the next morning, there was a massive explosion as an enormous serac on the glacier above peeled off. The cascading blocks of ice and rubble roared down and obliterated the tracks of a group of Ibex that had just crossed in the snowfield below. We watched stunned at the power. Even where we sat, golfball sized cubes of ancient glacial ice made it to us. Beauty, chaos, beauty, the cycle we live in.

Last week I posted another shot of this exact route, but shot much tighter. Which do you prefer? Seeing the landscape here? Or the impact of a tighter shot?

Time for something different. I almost don’t want to post this as a square because the full panorama format is much stronger. But this is probably my personal favorite image that we have. Shot in India, 2008.

Summer has made a triumphant return to Switzerland. My local, car free, secret stash. Grindelwald.

Splitter cracks, gold granite, big mountains. These are a few of our favorite things… @outdoorresearch

A Hindu trident in front of the sacred Machhupuchhre, from Annapurna’s Basecamp. We woke to this every morning for nearly 5 weeks last year while on a climbing expedition with Ueli Steck.

It’s day 4 of nonstop rain here in the Swiss Alps. Visitors always marvel at how green it is all summer. I guess we’re in the greening up period…. It’s going to be seriously green when this thing finally rolls out.
