🥇 Salavat Rock, Bashkiria, Russia · 26 pics by @alexanderfluke

It turns out that not so long ago this place received its official name — the Salavat Rock. This is a brand-new name, so, you will not find any mention of it in the web space (I did not find it). Perhaps my post will be the first article on the Internet about the rock of Salavat.Who is Salavat?Salavat Yulaev is a national hero of Bashkiria and many places and attractions in the Republic named after him. The Salavat Rock is located in the region of Bashkiria called the Salavatsky District. Salavat Yulaev was born in this region almost two hundred and fifty years ago. You can read more about his short but bright life here.

🥈 New Zealand Adventure - Milford Sound by @tomatom

They're called "Kea" are basically large parrots with mainly olive-green feathers Awesome to look at. They seemed very friendly at first, letting everyone get a nice picture and coming up rather close.But then... They started eating someone's car and biting the ariel!. One hopped in the back and started going through a woman's bag! I couldn't help but laugh (as it wasn't happening to me)"He's going for your keys" I warned trying not to laugh.I wouldn't class these as a pest though, just very clever cheeky devils! Not like the sand-flies! You don't know what's annoying until you've been bitten by a swarm of those little pests! Think mosquito bites that itch more and last twice as long. Oh, they're smaller too so harder to kill.

🥉 My California - Going Back to Cloud Canyon by @derekrichardson

Earlier in the year I had gone out to Cloud Canyon via a different route, but due to heavy rainstorms I wasn't able to climb any peaks out there. So I was determined to get back out there and climb 'em! From Woolverton I climbed up to the trail junction at Panther gap. I dropped my gear there and made the quick side trip up to Panther peak... which was totally worth it! I sat on the peak for a bit and enjoyed the views. Then I dropped back down to the gap, picked up my gear, and continued up the trail. I ran into a backcountry ranger and talked to him about my plans for this trip. He warned me about icy snow patches on the north side of Lion Lake pass.
