(swipe) From the Snow capped 16,000' summit of Puncak Jaya in Indonesia in the Tropics and all the way back to Colorado and in between- enjoy the #worldofwhite ! @drjonkedski wishing you a very white winter and holiday season ahead! #findyourzeal #exploremore #jonsjourneys #throughourlenses #happyholidays
Swipe The views from the top of the world as the sun comes up are something I'll remember forever and a part of life I want to experience again. @drjonkedski here this time from Nepal in the Himalayas- the highest mountains on earth. In 2012 I stood on the summit of Everest. These photos are from that experience- a couple of them showing Everest and other mountains from a distance- while a couple of the shots are from my summit day when I watched the sun come up from the top in dead calm weather. The #worldofwhite from 29,028' is extraordinary and I'm looking forward to returning to Everest in 2018 for #exploremore . #jonsjourneys #findyourzeal #everest #topoftheworld
One of my favorite camps of all time- Camp II at 21,000' on Gasherbrum II in Pakistan. The ridge dropped off thousands of feet on either side, but the views were incredible in this #worldofwhite The Karakoram of Pakistan boasts the highest concentration of peaks above 25,000' on the planet- even more than Nepal! @drjonkedski here for this #zeal takeover showing you this wintry setting which was actually in the middle of July! #jonsjourneys #findyourzeal #visitpakistan #throughourlenses Gasherbrum I at 26,509'/8080m is visible to the left.
Dropping in above 17,000' on Denali in Alaska earlier this year we were rewarded with the Backdrop of Foraker and prime snow conditions after making it to the summit of 20,320' Denali- the highest peak in North America. Among the many places I've been fortunate to ski- #worldofwhite in Alaska is pretty unlimited. @drjonkedski here taking you to a few of my favorite high places all over the globe to share with you my favorite ski and climbing destinations. Enjoy the journey and savor the views along the way and #exploremore !#jonsjourneys #findyourzeal #throughourlenses #Denali
(scroll to see each shot) After the last pink colors on the horizon faded into a deep Colorado bluebird day- I traded my skis for regular boots and headed for a trailhead to see just how much snow was up high in the #worldofwhite . @drjonkedski here taking over @zealoptics IG for some winter explorations. From the summit of 14,196' Yale it was evident that we need a lot more. But the fresh air and incredible views were worth the effort. Scouting some new ski lines that I know I'll be back for! #findyourzeal #jonsjourneys #exploremore #throughourlenses #colorado #bluebird #winteriscoming
I just love the magical hour- @drjonkedski here continuing the #worldofwhite Instagram takeover- I am getting super excited for winter, especially after my alpenglow ski tour from deep in the Sawatch of Colorado this morning. #findyourzeal #magicalhour #exploremore #throughourlenses #winteriscoming Next we'll head to a summit for some more views from the world of white- stay tuned!
#TGIF everyone! @drjonkedski here to help bring on the snow and the winter for this Instagram takeover as we begin a new season of adventure in the world of white. This weekend I'll not only take you on a live adventure to some high places- but I'll show you some of my favorite explorations from all over the world. Follow along and let's enjoy the journey. #findyourzeal #worldofwhite #jonsjourneys #throughourlenses #exploremore
