This place has got to be one of the coolest spots I have ever been, can't wait to go back 😍

Went hiking in a dream world and was tempted not to come back! 😍

After camping out under skogafoss we proceeded down the ring road to this DC-3 airplane that crashed nearly 40 years ago during the war. A very surreal moment for me.

Usually my pictures have lots of color, because that's the style I enjoy. But it was so monochromatic on top of the chief that day with only the Canadian gloves standing out. Also if you notice the pain on Annikas face, it was pretty cold up there.

A picture may never do a waterfall justice, the pure force you feel at the base of a fall reminds you how small you really are. πŸ’¦ #tccchallenges #canoncreatorlab @thecreatorclass @alexstrohl

After over a year of talking about it we finally checked this magical place off the bucket list. Though we weren't able to see a golden hour here despite my optimism that dragged us out on a canoe and into a snowstorm, we were able to see this island blanketed in snow, which was very special ❄️

The infamous blue wolf, or fox, or maple leaf... what do you think Peyto Lake looks like? P.S: Winter has arrived in the Rockies.

What happened in Vegas today is a reminder to hug those you love and accept others as who they are. Our world is too divided right now.

26

rorycourt

It's amazing who you meet when you keep an open mind and connect with others on adventures. This was my first time hiking with Ryan and Brandt and it's safe to say we had an epic time. Looking forward to future adventures 🀘🏻

Today we woke to below freezing temps and ice on our tents, all to be rewarded with a sunrise that would defrost our souls and remind us why we endure the elements.

Yellowstone Falls, September 2017

The thermal pools at Yellowstone were some of the most unique things I've ever seen in this world. Earth is the artist and we are the witness 😍

Somewhere in Montana... saw more Moose than people this day.

Traffic jams in Yellowstone... turns out this is actually quite a common occurrence as we got caught in a few during our time there. EDIT: had a brain lapse and put Yosemite by mistake πŸ˜‚

One of my favourite photos from the trip, taken on my trusted plastic 50mm. The scale of the mountains surrounding Emerald Lake is insane. #ilovemycountry

I had long given up on going to Palouse Falls, it was just too far from Vancouver to go see. That was until we pulled off the highway at a rest stop in Eastern Washington on our drive home from Wyoming. For some reason Palouse Falls came back to mind and a quick search helped us discover it was just one hour south. It was certainly worth the detour 😍

I've been doing a ton of experimenting with my photography workflow lately, just having fun trying new methods and changing it up. I thought this photo of Wild Goose Island on Saint Mary Lake was a great candidate for the orange and teal film look. Let me know what your favourite style of editing is!

27

rorycourt

Like many other challenging journeys, the feeling of doubt that I will reach my destination sets in almost immediately after beginning a hike. It's at these times when I try my best to adjust my attitude and find resilience within - the reward that comes with that change is always worth it.

Before last month, I had never even considered going to Yellowstone, it just seemed to far too go to in a short period of time. That's when Casey talked me into it, a trip that would include 7 national parks over 5000 km. This park specifically was the one that changed my opinion on beauty - it no more exclusively meant big mountains. Yellowstone has a beauty that must be experienced; abundant wildlife, massive canyons and culture that exudes conservation and appreciation for these vibrant landscapes. This shot of Yellowstone falls was taken from Artist Point on a smoky evening using my trusted plastic 50mm f1.8.

I will always like sunrise more than sunset, there is something about opening a day with a beautiful view and receiving a rush of inspiration to make the most of it that I love.

12

rorycourt

Still can't get over how steep and large the mountains in Glacier are, photo for scale 😳

rorycourt

We only stopped in Waterton Lakes for one night on our trip because I knew we would need a much longer trip in the future to fully experience its beauty. Super sad to see the fires now ripping apart the park 😒

10

rorycourt

Iceberg lake was on our bucket list but Casey was nervous because Glacier NP has so many bears. We ended up doing the hike because @coastalkells ensured us that the hike was super busy and the likelyhood of us running into a bear was really low... sure enough we encountered a grizzly on the way down, it wanted nothing to do with us and went on its way. Honestly, I was more scared that Casey was going to accidentally spray me with her bear spray because she was so scared πŸ˜‚

Today I started my classes again after an awesome 8 month internship at SAP in Vancouver, spending some time today reflecting on what an awesome experience that was and how lucky I was to explore North America this summer with some awesome people. #whpreflections

I finally understand all the hype around the Going to the Sun Road... Casey and I woke up late this morning and somehow managed to get driving within about 5 minutes when we saw the sun already hitting the mountains. We didn't want to miss the spectacle that nature was about to create.

Sometimes you have to live on the edge of death to feel most alive, like my friend Ryan, who just about gave me a heart attack when he began sliding down the shale rock towards a sheer 1000+ ft cliff. Here he is right after that fall, guy is just insane!

8

rorycourt

This place has been on my bucket list for a long long time but I honestly had no idea how to access this hike or get to some of the viewpoints. I was lucky enough to connect with Ryan who is an epic hiking buddy - we sent a scramble to the top of the East End of Rundle and decided to catch this view on the way down in the very last light of the day, it's amazing how fast the time passes when you spend it outside..

After a cloudy morning the day before, we went back to Moraine Lake for a more sunny sunrise, some clouds blocked the Alpenglow again... but at least we got to see the blue hues of the lake really light up this time. So thankful that these places are accessible to all people πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #thetrailspeaks

22

rorycourt

Today I saw 4 bears and 8 moose.... more on that later. Here's a sunset from Emerald Lake a few days ago ☺️

23

rorycourt

Casey and I drove through the night to arrive at Moraine Lake at 4AM, enough time for a quick two hour nap before sunrise. Unfortunately the sun never came out to say hi but I can confirm Moraine is still more beautiful than ever πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ *would have loved to be the guy in the kayak*

After interning for 8 months with no holidays I decided to hit the road before heading back to school. Unfortunately while leaving Vancouver I got stuck in some heavy rush hour traffic - luckily we found some amazing alpenglow on the Coquihalla Pass and had to pull off in the @jeep to capture it πŸ”₯

This morning's cloudy weather has me remembering a very rainy August morning at Lynn Canyon with @zachbaranowski, I don't think it's actually rained here since then. Spending the summer in Vancouver has completely changed my view on this city, before then all I knew here was the endless rain.

26

rorycourt

Sometimes it's hard to describe the beauty of some places, I think that's why many of us have taken to photography to share these places with others.

Lucky to have a best friend who will drive 8 hours to send an 8 mile hike in the dark with me. Good times are had when you spend them with good people 🀘🏻

"Bud, we need to do this way more often" - the wise words of my good friend @jess_polley. We've been lifelong friends and adventure buddies despite having very different paths in life and only being able to link up adventures maybe once or twice a year. Somehow I see that number going way up in the future πŸ€™πŸ» 🀘🏻 β€’ β€’ On this particular hike we started off from the trailhead after 9PM, 8 miles of hiking in the dark is bearable when you are doing it with your best friend.

I've been pushing the boundaries with my images lately and it's made me wonder, how creative is too creative? This image is actually two images from the same hike, one I took while Alex wasn't standing on the lookout, and the light was nicer, the other is an image with Alex on the lookout as a distinct silhouette. How creative is too creative? Does this change your impression of the image now knowing that it's not one image alone, but two taken minutes apart?

Was so stoked to tryout @trailfoody on my last trip into the backcountry. They send you an assortment of healthy (and surprisingly tasty) snacks to take with you on your trip in a killer stuff sack, making it easy to get at your snacks when you want to chow down on the trail 🀘🏻😍 #sponsored 🍦 β€’ β€’ β€’ #creativexposures #compassoutdoors #pnwdiscovered #greatnorthco #aov10K #roam10K #ExploreEverything #travelstoke #roamtheplanet #StayAndWander #OptOutside #theoutbound #ourcamplife #opentheworld #NeverStopExploring #MyNature #modernoutdoors #wildnernessnation #adventureanywhere #modernvoyage #worldtones #mountainstones #keepitwild #seeyououtthere #letsgosomewhere #campbrandgoods #AnotherBestDay #liveoutdoors

Oftentimes, we focus on the destination without giving any thought to the journey, both literally and figuratively. I've found that some of the best hikes I've ever had were because they were spent with good company that I could share great conversation with on the trail. Of course it's an awesome feeling reaching your desired destination, but don't forget to enjoy the journey there.

Sumeet messaged me the other day saying he had some time off and really wanted to get outside. If you know me at all, you know I'm always chomping at the bit for a new adventure. I told him we could hike on Saturday but that I had to leave for Washington midday and could only do an alpine start, luckily he runs a coffee shop and gets up at 4AM on the daily anyways. I think this shot sums up how the hike went πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ β€’ β€’ Shot on a Canon 6D and the cheap plastic nifty fifty (50mm 1.8) lens. β€’ β€’ #artofvisuals #agameoftones #moodygrams

Been wanting to hike this for so long, finally decided to send it with my roomy the other evening - another epic sunset with no one else around.

A big fear of mine is failing to reach a goal, but to be honest, my biggest fear is not having a goal at all. Lately I've been feeling a bit lost in life, so getting lost outside has been helping me find my own path.

Dove straight into the weekend on Friday - Casey and I had Middle Joffre Lake to ourselves on the hike to Upper Joffre Lake. It pays to hike when the crowds aren't around 🀘🏻 *yes the water was absolutely freezing*

800m above sea level at sunrise. Better than sleeping in at home, that's for damn sure.

There's been a great discussion over on the feed of @moonmountainman on the effects of Social Media on the Environment. In my honest opinion, I think the effect of getting people outside has been great as the land belongs to no one and everyone has the right to enjoy it. However, our next step needs is to educate people about proper backcountry practices to ensure the land can be enjoyed by many generations to come. The disappearance of something as delicate as these wildflowers can have everlasting effects on an ecosystem. #adventureresponsibly

rorycourt

The more time I spend in nature, the more I realize I need it. There is something about being in the backcountry that really makes you appreciate the simple things in life (food, water, shelter, friendship) and forget about the things that don't matter at all.

14

rorycourt

Rant 2: if you see someone having a fire in the backcountry during the ban, first inform them of the ban, and educate them on why it's important they respect the ban (we want to be able to come back and enjoy these forests, and we need to respect the nature that gives us so much). More often than not I see more experienced backcountry goers rip on rookies because they think the rookie is ignorant, that may be the case but more often than not they are actually just unaware. Let's educate each other and connect on outdoor issues, at the end of the day new adventures will continue to come and it's best we educate them so the outdoors can continue to be enjoyed responsibly together. *picture taken in May before the fire ban*

Had some fun with some old images today, this was taken on the first camera I ever owned, a Canon t5i with a kit lens, which I dropped in a lake a week later πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Also, excited to hit up this spot again in a week!

When you see the shadow of the earth begin to cut across the eastern sky, you know you are entering the blue hour, I'm still blown away by this view in the coast mountains...

Late on a Friday night, 2 campers decided they wanted to give yoga a go in front of the beautiful sunset we were witnessing. Our new friend, Madison, who we met on the hike up turned out to be a yoga instructor - within minutes we had begun a blue hour yoga class complete with the ever so fitting "mountain pose". The best part is that no one knew each other before engaging in such a fulfilling group experience. #mountainmoments

Casey's first time hiking up to look over the Howe Sound, it's crazy to think these spots are in our backyard..

#LakeLife pt. 4: living at a boat access only cabin has its complexities, like dealing with the morning fog some days.
