Lake Tahoe Officials Are Banning Bear Selfies…

Lake Tahoe tourists have been putting themselves in danger in order to take “selfies” with wild bears, promoting park officials in South Lake Tahoe to ban the act. “We’ve had mobs of people that are actually rushing toward the bears trying to get a ‘selfie’ photo,” Lisa Herron, spokesperson for the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, told the Reno Gazette-Journal. “It is presenting a safety issue. We are afraid someone is going to get attacked.” 

Get it together folks. If you want to take selfies with wildlife try a zoo or maybe your pet cat. Stick to gramming pictures of airplane wings, the time you tried to make a recipe from a Bobby Flay cookbook, and shitty sunsets. No word yet if the park officials will move to ban the controversial but less dangerous "duck face" selfie. 

Who cares? Let the social media obsessed idiots do it. It will thin out the herd and the bears will be able to bulk up for winter. Why would anyone waste effort on trying to protect jackasses like these?

A single drop of blood fell to the snow, making a hollow plop. Halfway up hiking a backcountry run, Dina Mishev stared down at the lone drop of red on white. More blood pooled to the point of her nose. Dina watched as another drop fell, joining the first one on the snow. The blood stared back at her, a reminder of all the reasons why she couldn’t let herself stop climbing. Fresh from her second round of chemo a few days prior, Mishev was actively ignoring the pain, nausea and exhaustion

Basecamp: Reinventing the Classic Austrian Mountain Hut

It’s 5 a.m. and stepping out of bed onto the cold wooden floor of the hut seems like the worst idea ever. I suck it up and crawl out from beneath the covers and put on my down slippers to head downstairs. The whole building is dark and quiet, save for the creaking floorboards beneath my feet and the sound of the wind outside. The early morning rituals of living at the Karl Ludwig Haus are the most important of the day. Especially later in the year, when temperatures plummet and the snow
