by Katie Scott Aiton Dec 15, 2015

EACH WEEK WE CHOOSE OUR favorite images from readers, fans, and travelers, who tag their photos with #travelstoke and post them on our Instagram account. These pictures provide a daily dose of inspiration, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways.

Here are this week’s editors’ picks of people finding some serious #travelstoke.

1. Stunning aerial view of Morro Bay Estuary & South Bay Blvd in California by @luketyreephotography.

“Racing Extinction” – Airing tonight on the Discovery Channel at 9pm EST and predicted to be the most-watched documentary in history. #RacingExtinction covers the very real possibility that in 100 years, 50% of all species could be gone. The camera takes you #undercover, with women bringing hidden cameras into sushi restaurants that sell contraband meat, and #underwater to witness a diver’s incredible rescue of a 30 ft. Manta Ray – it opens your eyes to the fact that the wildlife trade is second only to the drug market in the world. • Visit our Facebook page to watch the trailer or tune in tonight at 9/8c for the full film. And when it inevitably inspires you to help protect the Earth and its animals, email us at and ask about our wildlife conservation opportunities all around the world. #DiscoveryChannel #ProtectOurEarth #Startwith1thing #BestDocumentary #AmazingAnimals #BeautifulMatters #MyEpicRoad #TransformativeTravel #TravelWell #TravelStoke #TLPicks
