Home Hill: I’ve climbed and skied this Rocky Mountain 13teener every spring with my brother and friends (pawed included) for roughly three decades. One of our friends sadly passed on this hill so now we continue the tradition in memory, hollering his name Laaathe in celebration of life -- and sorrow for our departed pal. #friendship #brothers #Colorado #wilderness #skiing #dogs #nature

To all the mothers and matriarchs out there, including the largest, Mama Earth, Happy Mother’s Day. Thanks for taking care of us. We can do better.
To my personal mom, thanks for showing me the world of creativity, high energy and empathy you exude daily. Big love.

The dance of blue hour falls over man-made and natural forms, casting a glow on the flow of tourists leaving Monument Valley at the end of the day. Tourism offers economic opportunity to many that live near and amidst landscapes like this, but it can also bring the risk of loving places to death. Tune in to @cbseveningnews tonight 6:30 ET to hear me and @kevinfedarkoauthor talk with @jeffglor about the challenges of conservation and access in our revered landscapes. My film #intothegrandcanyon, is now streaming on Hulu and my book (check profile link) look at this tricky issue. #intothecanyon #betweenriverandrimbook #monumentvalley #longexposure #sonyalpha 📷 by #petemcbride

Rio Grande: My friend @bencmasters recently spent 3 months traveling the US-Mexico border on bikes, horses, and canoes to document the borderlands before further construction of a wall. He just released the film @theriverandthewall which takes us on the journey to see the landscapes carved by the Rio Grande and to meet the people that live there. They interviewed wildlife biologists, border patrol agents, immigrants, landowners, and politicians to show the reality of the border and how a physical wall would affect the wildlife and public lands along the Rio Grande. The film is beautiful, funny, heart-wrenching, informative, and opened my eyes to the beauty and diversity of the region. These are a few photos from their journey. Check out Ben’s film streaming now on iTunes. #theriverandthewall #riogrande #wildlife

Roots of a River: 5 years ago I paddled the Colorado River to the Sea of Cortez. It was a remarkable journey because the river no longer reaches the sea thanks to our network of thirsty straws upstream. But in 2014, a binational agreement released a slug of water, less than 1% of the river’s annual flow, in an effort to restore parts of the Colorado River's delta estuary. Our paddling team rode that pulse and witnessed the river kiss the ocean once again (briefly). Sadly we were last to do so because the river is once again dry. But yesterday, I returned to visit one of the restoration sites where a small base flow of water has turned a section of arid wasteland back into a forest of native vegetation. It gave me hope how resilient nature can be if we give it a hand and let it do its thing. Thanks to the @theredfordcenter for the amazing journey with a remarkable crew of river #stewards #hope #Coloradoriver #raisetheriver
For those in the Bay Area, you can see my film “Into the Canyon” tomorrow at #Doclands in San Rafael at 12 noon which focuses on our public lands and water. #intothecanyon

Of all the days and nights in this place, it is the silence that sticks with me the most. Thanks @bimarianfilms and @teva for the laughter and music while chasing that deep, liquid #silence. To see more check bio link. #grandcanyon #betweenriverandrimbook #intothecanyonfilm #sonyalpha

This mile deep abyss has connected me to strangers, friends and family — from tribes of teachers to gurus of place. In short: it is a remarkably rich community of the canyon.
This weekend I reconnected with many at @5pointfilmfestival and felt touched to see once again how the power of story can inspire us. Thanks @4cornerfilmlogistics @erikweihenmayer @skyler_j_williams @richrudow @justincliffton @theweightofwaterfilm #grandcanyon #nature #aerial 📸 by #petemcbride

Certain places can capture our imagination. For me, a land of volcanoes and history is one: it’s world filled with mystery, magic and challenge, and all woven tightly together. During Semana Santa, the streets turn into tapestries of color and light as processions plod through. I got lost amidst all of it and my mind drifts back.
