Photo by @michaelgeorge | Torres del Paine is the rare park where humans are the outsiders in a vast, legitimate wilderness. Though it occupies 930 square miles, the park receives only 2,000 visitors per day in peak season. Here we travel over “Lago Pehoé,” translated as “Hidden Lake.” The color is caused by glacial “flour” or rock dust suspended in the water. In the distance you can see Macizo Paine, a group of mountains that look like broken teeth. #torresdelpaine #patagonia #chile

Photo by Carlton Ward Jr @carltonward | During summer shipping season, ranchers across Florida ride out in the predawn darkness to gather their herds. During the week in July that I spent with the Seminole tribe at their Big Cypress Reservation, the cattle from each morning’s first pasture had already reached the pens well before sunrise. That’s when the real work begins. Some calves are sold to market, some are held back to replenish the herds, others are kept to raise as show calves by students in the 4-H club. Here Seminole ranch foremen Andre Jumper and Bobby Yates sort and part cattle. Jumper, once a linebacker for the FSU Seminoles, said that sorting cattle through the hopper (the funnel before the chute) felt like football practice. Bringing cattle to the pens is also the time to get head counts. Ranchers check numbers against the previous count to know how many calves have been lost, in some cases to coyotes, bears, and panthers. There can be tension with wildlife, but without ranches in Florida there would not be enough habitat to support wide-ranging animals like the endangered Florida panther. We as conservationists need to support policies that allow panthers to be assets to ranchers, not just potential liabilities. In rapidly developing Florida, panthers and ranchers are both endangered species. Investing in the land conservation needed to keep the Florida Wildlife Corridor intact is the best hope for preserving ranches and the continued recovery of the panther. See rare photos of Florida panthers @carltonward. #pathofthepanther @fl_wildcorridor @natgeoimagecollection #seminole #ranch #floridawild #keepflwild

“Soya sauce (or tương) is a traditional Vietnamese sauce,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Thạch Phạm Ngọc. “It is made from fermented beans and then incubated in Earthenware jars and dried in the sun.”

Inspired by the @natgeochannel series Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted—airing tonight at 10/9c—@natgeoyourshot invited you to take us on a culinary expedition by sharing your best photos and stories at www.natgeoyourshot.com. As National Geographic’s global photo community, together we will illustrate @gordongram’s belief that food is the gateway to culture around the world.

“I couldn’t do that!” — a common response to images of imposing mountain ranges from the treks we’ve done (like the Huayhuash trek pictured here). The implication is that serious mountaineering chops, youth — or both — are somehow the secret.⁠.⁠

Not so. Outside of some preparation, the real secret in most cases is perseverance. One foot in front of the other, slow and steady up and over each mountain pass day after day. In fact, one guy in our group was 74-years-old and had both knees replaced just a couple years prior to the walk. He inspired us as he ascended each and every pass. Not only was his perseverance notable, his gratitude was also. The childlike wonder he expressed in response to all that he encountered along the trail was infectious. ⁠.⁠

For us, the best antidote or answer to dispel the myths and doubts regarding what we can and cannot carry ourselves to do: the everyday people we encounter on our travels.⁠.⁠

While the 10-day Huayhuash trek is physically challenging and takes you to some high altitudes (5,050 m/16,570 feet at the highest point), there’s nothing technical about it.⁠ Our Huayhuash Trekking Guide (link in bio) explains it all..⁠
