Instagram is fantastic. Every time you open the app, you’ll find inspiration, humor, something to think about, and various forms of eye candy. This isn’t a sales pitch for Instagram, but if you don’t have it on your phone (or iPad) already, now’s the time!

Here are a few outdoor accounts you can follow to get you started:

The Outbound @theoutbound

This San Francisco-based adventure website/gear shop provides a wealth of information for great outdoor destinations, including locations, photos, and hikers’ journals. Their Instagram feed is chock-full of beautiful hiking destinations.

Discover Earth @discoverearth

While it’s not strictly an outdoor/adventure-themed account, Discover Earth has some of the most amazing shots of our world that we’ve seen anywhere. At any given moment, these folks will serve up the perfect photo to make you wonder at the beauty of our planet.

The Clymb @theclymb

This Portland gear shop and adventure story site shows us just how to merge beautiful imagery and outdoor advertising into one account. Their photography is so pretty that we don’t even mind the occasional sales nudge. (Man, you should see their marketing emails!)
