Halfway up, and two hours in, I caught myself wondering if it was going to be worth it. The storm had left the trail covered in a layer of ice and freshly packed snow making the ascent just a tad bit difficult. But this view? This view was worth it.
If you’re wondering about the descent, let’s just say I was grateful he volunteered to hike down the camera equipment as I spent most of the hike on my butt or back. That ice was VICIOUS. 😂 #AndThereSheGoes

See that dark thin streak, roughly in the centre, going vertically up toward the top? It's called the Black Dyke. 👉 "It formed by the splitting of the solid granodiorite along a vertical fracture, which created a conduit for basalt and andesite magmas, which may have fed volanoes on the surface above the then-buried granitic rock."
These last few months I past in Duncan on Vancouver Island. I've worked in the local Subway and joined a great team. Today was my last day working with them and some people I will always remember. Also my workaway family I'll be leaving in a few days. I could not have wished for more loving people. They took me in like I was part of the family. On my days of they took me on adventures. I had the greatest time with them, they are always welcome in Belgium once I get back 😍 Next week I'm meeting up with my sister in Vancouver and we'll continue this adventure together 😀 See you next time Vancouver Island.
Strength and power of the Atlantic Ocean is truly on display along the coastline of the Faroe Islands. Thousands of years of waves battering against the coastline have formed the most incredible jagged peaks that rise from the ocean.
Polar patience. Don’t be fooled, this young male isn’t resting - he’s figuring out what his next move will be. Polar bears are incredibly intelligent and intuitive animals. This was taken on my first evening with the bears. One I’ll never, ever forget. @churchillwildsafaris [D5, 500mm f/4]
