January 28. 7.06 AM. Molise - Italy: my Homeland. We were finally arrived: Morrone Delle Rose: 2310 altitude feet. Today however has been very hard: we had departed preparing us for conditions of fresh snow seen the last days of snowfall, but snow had left the place to the ice. It’s been hard, but after 4 hours of scaling the show seen from up there has repaid everything: to west the gulf of Naples was perceived with the waves of the sea burnt of red by the first rays of the twilight with Capri and Ischia that timidly appeared. To east the adriatic sea was clear as the ice that surrounded us.
Had less than 10 minutes to take this when summiting Grand Teton due to incoming weather storms and I wanted to capture the massive change in elevation I’d just traversed and give viewers a sense of scale. I chose to focus on the landscape break versus the sea of continuous mountain top texture facing the other direction while including a human element to bring scale into perspective.
Here’s Jane taking in some of the scenery through the lenses of our optics partner Zeal Optics. These frames are made from a cotton acetate that dissolves if lost in the water or snow for 18 months. It’s companies like Zeal that showcase you don’t have to compromise on quality, style and performance to be environmentally responsible. That’s why Outdoor Junkiez Founder Jane trusts the shades for this quick hike up Exit Glacier just outside of Seward.
We were on our way to the Mount Kujū 久住山 in Japan, it was -8 degree when we start at 8 am, it was windy and misty. All of a sudden, the sky was clear, and the cloud was moving fast. It was one of the best hiking experience. Mount Kujū (1791m) is the highest mountain in Kyushu Island, Japan. It is also one of the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains.

One of the hardest things I’ve ever done was hike three hours in the snow and mud up Rainbow Mountain. Local men and women would speed past me wearing open toe sandals as blood dripped from their feet to guide tourists up the mountain who otherwise couldn’t make it, just to run back down for another rider.
