We are constantly thrilled by the gems appearing in our new @NatGeoAdventure feed. This week’s #followfriday highlights include Renan Ozturk (@Renan_Ozturk), whose films Meru and Down to Nothing won awards last weekend at Telluride Mountainfilm, and Ben Moon (@ben_moon), who also screened two films (Denali, Rabbit Island). We also wanted to share a special shout out to Tim Kemple (@timkemple), whose “Nepal, I Love You” Himalaya short films screened throughout the festival, and his willing adventurer Kate Bishop (@kbish80) for the photo from their snowy traverse of the via ferrata just outside of Telluride.
📷@timkemple • • The Telluride, Colorado via ferrata traverses the skyline above town and across the road from the famous Bridal Veil Falls. It’s exposure and views are one of a kind. • • Using a series of metal steps anchored to the wall for your hands and feet, and a steel cable for protection this line across the valley sky has become very popular with those who have the gumption. Lucky for us, passing snow flurries kept the crowds at bay and we had the whole ‘climb’ to ourselves. @kbish80 #mfilm15
Video by @renan_ozturk–——————————————-Much of the tribe is gathered here @mountainfilm festival to share the spark of adventure….past, present and future. The memory of @deanpotter has been ever-present, his art timeless. Here he walks the Yosemite Falls high-line, drawing a line with his movement across the dramatic landscape. It’s hard to understand his risks, but those of us who knew him loved him for his unwavering passion. Miss you my friend. @jimmy_chin @jimhurst A video posted by National Geographic Adventure (@natgeoadventure) on

I have always been fascinated by the underwater perspective of human interaction with the ocean. #underwater #thetorpedopeople #bodysurfing Honored to be diving in with the talented and adventurous group of contributors of the @natgeoadventure feed!
