Three-toed Sloth | Photograph by Matthijs Hollanders (@matthijs.hollanders)
“During a late-night hike through the Chocoan lowlands of Ecuador,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Matthijs Hollanders, “we came across a three-toed sloth close to the ground who was willing to pose for some quick photos.”

To celebrate #InternationalSlothDay, here are three facts for you about the three-toed sloth:
• The sloth is world’s slowest animal, so sedentary that algae grows on its furry coat.
• Sloths sleep in trees, and they sleep a lot — some 15 to 20 hours every day.
• The three-toed sloth emits a long, high-pitched call that echoes through the forests as “ahh-eeee” Because of this cry these sloths are sometimes called ais (pronounced “eyes”).

In the lovely but small French Basque town of Sare there was a weekend festival in the fall of 1967. These three men were standing in a doorway listening to a Basque poet. I was standing a bit below them which allowed me to frame them with just some ceiling beams above them but the base of the picture is dark with their coats and it’s their ancient appearing faces that stand out; faces that are seemingly ageless, all three intent upon what the poet is saying to them. Basque is an impossible language so I, of course, had no idea what so ever the poet was saying. But I was completely caught up in these three mens’ faces. And I still am.

Brittney Beadle (@brittneybeadle) does not put off anything for tomorrow. “Do it now,” she advises. “Live in the moment and enjoy your life.” In May 2015, Brittney was diagnosed with metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer, at the age of 18. “I felt I was alone,” Brittney says. “There are some young women in their 20s who I found, but still no one who was “my age” young, with breast cancer.”
By sharing her journey, she hopes to help others in a similar position. “Whenever I have to go through a new treatment that’s really hard — like when I had radiation to my brain — I think, ‘OK. Yes, this sucks. I have to do this. But you know what? I get to live.’” #BreastCancerAwareness


I’ve been quiet on Instagram the last several days because I’ve been very sick. I’m in Salta, Argentina and I came down with a very bad cold when I was in Patagonia. I was caught out in the rain while hiking on a glacier. Toss in the cold temperatures and high winds and viola!……sick.

I’m attending the Adventure Travel World Summit here in Salta and when not at the event, I’ve spent almost all my time in my hotel room sleeping and trying to recover.

End result? Not a lot of activity on Instagram.

I’m feeling much better now, however. Still have a bit of a cough, but other than that, the major symptoms are gone.

I’m here in Salta for 3 more nights and then I head back to US. I’ll be home in Minneapolis for 6 days before I head to Portland, Oregon for another conference. After that I head to London for what I hope will be my last big conference of the year. If you are in Portland or London, let me know if you’d like to meet up.

Nothing like hiking the Swiss alps in the middle of the night and getting lost for 4hrs w/ iPhone flashlights to lead the way and still managing to end up here 5 min before sunrise 🌄 Thanks to my brother @linomeoli for following me on this amazing Swiss adventure, wouldn't have been the same without you fam. Tip: If you plan to hike from Zermatt to Stellisee for sunrise do not follow the google maps🚶🏽directions!!! Prob a bad idea for any hike 😅

Hydra by night. A perfect long weekend getaway. In mid-September, the heat backs off and the water is still warm. A long trek or two gives good coverage of the island. Food is excellent, especially if fish and seafood are your thing and you don't mind feta, local cheeses, and Greek wine. Throw in an afternoon boat ride along the southwestern shore, a few dips in the Gulf of Hydra, some late afternoon strolls and a lie-in or two and you'll have the makings for a perfect shoulder/mid-season break.
