Why You Should Be Investing in Adventure


Tiffany Young

​To those who have the will to stay young...

This may sound like a no brainer to all you adventure folks

But throughout the course of life, your agenda will change. Planned or unplanned, you won't always know the next step. The only thing we can do is stay eager because adventure isn't always a thing, but often a time.

There is so much we want to see, so many things we want to embrace, and so many dreams that seem so far and sometimes impossible to achieve... but impossible depends on your will to invest. It's time to devote yourself to the adventure and I promise you won't regret it because maybe one day....

You'll want to have the mountains in your backyard.

Maybe one day, you'll want to live the magical (and filthy) life of a summertime festival-goers.

Maybe one day, you'll want to surround yourself with trees taller than you have ever seen.

Or maybe one day, you'll live in a city where natural beauty isn't too hard to find.

We have a lot of "maybe's" to fulfill in life and we most likely don't know what they all are yet. But one day, you'll have the urge to do something crazy. Something so outside of your comfort zone, you'll need to invest in your all for that adventure. Even if you think you've done it all, something new will always come around.

When you stay mindful of the places you go and find your will to explore, an adventure will always be on your side.

Please respect the places you find on The Outbound.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures. Be aware of local regulations and don't damage these amazing places for the sake of a photograph.

Climbing in 18-Degree Weather to Shoot the Sunrise

Vantage, Washington

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

6 Reasons Why You Should Use a Telephoto Lens for Landscape Photography

When most people start out taking landscape photos, they think they need to get a wide angle lens in order to capture the whole landscape. When I bought my first DSLR, I was one of those people.
