🥇 On the Edge of Life / Overcoming the biggest challenge yet - Sredonosa Karst Ridge by @velinov86

"The fact that this is a reserve and very few people come to visit it, makes it divine and pristine. We had to be very careful not to disrupt it in any way. The views are amazing. As Sredonosa is the backbone of Pirin mountain, we only had ridges on both our sides. The ridge in the distance is the famous Cat´s claw that we managed to descend last year. One heck of an experience that ended up with some ankle sprains for me."

🥈 Travel To The Asbestos Mountains In Clear Creek, San Benito County, CA by @rt395

"The mountain range contains a large amount of a mineral called serpentine, the California state rock. Serpentine contains asbestos and is also very poor soil for plant life, so parts of the mountains are barren.While hiking up a canyon we were searching we found an old mercury mine. This ore cart was partially buried in the ravine. A bit further up the canyon was the rock outcrop we were interested in inspecting."

"In the distance I could see a small lighthouse that peeked out from the granite land, I read that the island was known for being a fishing site so the government built some houses that are like a free hotel for fishermen who in fishing season they stay in these rooms to spend the night and be much more comfortable! but if you like extreme things then the island gives you the possibility to rent one of these rooms!"
