I remember when I started to train handstands at the @bamacademy in austin Tx, with now @junglemovement movement leaders @mattjpk4l and @ninja_josh_grant, I couldn't hardly balance for even a few seconds. I never really told anyone at the time, but showing up for acrobatics lessons, I was nervous to even step on the floor when I knew handstands were the movement of choice. It seemed like everyone picked it up quicker and having very experienced gymnasts in the class as well made me feel even less desiring to try. But I made it a commitment to myself that I would become confident at handstands. This is two years later. And though I don't always have the straightest form, I'm still working on that, I'm proud of the confidence I've gained. Huge shoutout to @everchanginghorizon and @handsomerobinson for the inspiration for this specific shot. And thanks to my awesome bud @neilbennett3 for the photo! Never give up on your dreams folks

The Hraunfossar area looked especially vibrant in fall, with its orange and red bushes clinging to the lava beds and accentuating the blue waters flowing out from them. Visiting this area would be hard to fit in as we were already tight on time, but when we arrived to an abundance of fall color still lingering I knew we had to check these falls out. On our second day while en route from the Snæfellsnes Peninsula to Akureyi, we made the side trip and it was totally worth it. Thankfully we had an off road capable car, which is always a plus in Iceland, as we got to take a nice shortcut on some pristine dirt roads to save us a ton of time. @sixticeland
It's so true that if a year was tucked inside of a clock, Autumn 🍂 would definitely be the magic hour. The beauty never seems to stay for very long •

Making eye contact with a mama Grizzly is an intense experience. The night before this encounter, as we were hiking, we noticed baby Grizzly footprints which put us on high alert, especially because we were 15 miles into the backcountry and we were camping in this area overnight. It's hard to describe the moment a Grizzly comes into view and looks directly at you. Time seems to stop and you become fully present in that moment. Luckily there was a steep cliff between us and the bears which allowed us to hang out for a bit and take photos from about 80 yards away. The mama would occasionally glance up at us just to see what we were doing but never appeared too concerned. This was one of the most impactful wildlife experiences of my life and now I'm hooked. I can't wait to travel and have more Grizzly encounters. They're absolutely incredible to watch!
