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 incentive, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways. Here are this week’s editors’ picks of people finding some serious #travelstoke.
1. Breeze Turner, Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

4. Christin Healey, North Cascades National Park, Washington.
The night before this photo was taken, we were all strangers who happened to meet at an old fire lookout high in the Northern Cascades. By morning, we were sharing coffee, puffy coats, stories & all the snacks. I’m always so amazed with the way the mountains bring people together in the very best ways #optoutside #theoutbound #wildernessculture
5. Antoine Truchet, The Karangahake Gorge, New Zealand.
6. Jerald Saw, Lake Pukaki, New Zealand.
| 04/05/16 | 2100 | I’m home, after 3 weeks of traveling through New Zealand with 3 friends. It was a trip that seemed crazily impossible when we first planned for it earlier in the year due to budget constrains and what nots. But I knew this was what I wanted, so I worked hard and took every opportunity that was given to me. It wasn’t easy but I knew the rainbow at the end was gonna be worth it and it certainly was. It feels great to be back, but I can see myself leaving again real soon. I guess I just can’t keep my feet on the ground haha. With this grad trip, I can proudly say that I’m done with polytechnic. It was insanely tiring and tumultuous, but I’ll definitely miss it. My motto for myself this year is — “Don’t just say you want it. Make it happen.”
7. Brayden Hall, Haiku Stairs aka Stairway To Heaven, Hawaii.
Sometimes you finally make it to a spot that you have heard of from others, seen in photos, and dreamed of going for a long time and all you can do when you get there is go “waaaaaaaaaaow”. I call these the ‘WOW Moments.’ Get out there this weekend and do something that makes you go, “waaaaaaaaowowowoww!” #WowSoHard #waaaaaaoooow
8. Nick Cooper, Jervis Bay, Australia.
9. Tommy Kirkpatrick, Red Bluff, California.
10. Kamarin Lee, El Nido, Palawan island, Philippines.
Missing these waters like crazy today. Swimming with these guys gave me a new perspective on life! Catapult yourself to your dreams! — YOU WILL GET THROUGH. — Never be downed by the idea that your dream is too far, that your work is too much, or that your passions are overwhelming. There will be people who simply cannot wrap their heads around the idea of ambition beyond making ends meet. – Your work ethic is not a sign of pretentiousness. Your lack of it is not a sign of laziness. People will hate, question, despise, or argue what you’re about, no matter what you’re about. – We’re all after different things and no matter what it might be, people will be adverse to it. – Don’t let ’em stop you.
11. Alex Noble, East Camino Cielo, Santa Barbara.
