First word, humbled. First thought, I love our community! It's incredibly emotional witnessing so much good. So many of us preach, here's to now. So many say, life is short. Well in these moments our words fall short when we consider an illness such as ALS. However! As we, a beautiful community filled with a diverse group of planet earth enthusiasts, decide to support one of our own, magic can happen. Please know it doesn't go unnoticed during this busy time. We are all in this together. AND! After only a short 8 hours of swift communal action we are knocking at the door of $27,000 to help our dear friend, father, husband, Chad Kendrick of @treelineoutdoors. This is only the BEGINNING! Please help push the message to help get Chad to California for a crucial treatment. This will help to keep him in all our lives. Humble thank you. #thechadiscalling

We had just set up camp. Chad really needed a fish. I mean he was just about foaming at the mouth. This shot, was just after he caught a gorgeous Cutthroat. It was almost as if he was able to take his first ever breath of air. I just laughed. Later we’d find ourselves in the pitch black surrounded by bears. Stay tuned and please check the link in bio for ways to help him fight ALS. Thank you!

70 million year old dinosaur bones litter the ground. Some have been encapsulated in the hoodoos that surround us. Following a day of exploration and discovery with local paleontologist we were blind sided by this unreal phenomenon. The Aurora Borealis rose on the horizon, illuminating these ancient fossils and showering them with a brilliant green hue. Chad and I, overwhelmed, decided to use the extra light to find our camp then sit and take it all in. An unforgettable evening.

UPDATE: I've created a coupon code ChadKendrick to receive 50% off prints. All proceeds will go towards his fight with ALS. The outreach by this amazing community, friends, and family has been incredible. Thank you! Keep sharing and let’s get this guy to California! Link in bio under: Other ways to help.

Lastly, I'm going to be sharing images of moments I've shared with Chad over the years. Thank you!

PLEASE HELP • Link in bio
My dear friend Chad Kendrick founder of @treelineoutdoors has recently been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known Lou Gehrig's disease. ALS is a devastating disease of the nervous system. More specifically, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, which means that it causes nerve cells to die and the condition gets worse and worse over time.
.
Chad has already lost most of the use of his arms and hands and can feel the disease spreading quickly to his legs and lungs. He needs our IMMEDIATE help!
.
What we need to raise money for is to get Chad to California to see Dr. Steenblock for stem cell therapy in hopes that this can help slow, stop or even reverse the effects of ALS.
.
We are a community of explorers, artists, and adventures. One of our own and a huge part of this community needs our help. From his beautiful wife and son, from his loving family, and from all us friends around the world, thank you for the support! Link in Bio.

PLEASE SHARE - LETS GET THIS! 🙏🏻

Don't fret, the road could always be much worse. The goal? Stay humble and hungry.

Just a peek. Clouds tumbled and rolled for us the whole day. It was time-lapses heaven. Hope everyone is out there enjoying the weekend!

I'm really ready for a getaway. Who's with me? #cabinfever

How rare and beautiful it truly is to exist. Words to literally live by.

Early morning fish sesh with Chad, from @treelineoutdoors. Can't wait to share more of our story and journey. If you follow my @instagram story you'll see I've been editing my life away, but we are about to pull the trigger on our new film. Thanks for all the love and support! #themountainiscalling #StillWildFilm

Evenings in the backcountry. A nice quite trickle of a stream, a glorious fire, and a sip of whiskey. Bliss #StillWildFilm

The striations along the walls of Zion tell an incredible story of change. Time and erosion has shaped and shifted the landscape. It's amazing to just sit and imagine the forces that left us with the beauty that it is today.

Crater Lake haunts me. It's one of my top 5 favorite places I've experienced so far, no joke. What's your fave 5?

From way above. We were flying over the Rockies for a film shoot last year and while hanging out I looked down and was like, how neat is that!

When you can't beat the light, use it. One of my favorite nights of 2016. Shooting the Needles in the Olympic National Park. Euphoria

Anyone have plans for Saturday morning dawn patrol? I think I might get up super early and go find something pretty to stare at.

It's snowing in an already deathly silent place. Add a foot of powder, then what do you hear, your own thoughts. Listen up, now is the time.

My favorite part of an inversion is that moment when you come out of it. To look out at the blanket that's covering the world below is so incredible.

Andy Best (@andy_best)

The silence is ringing. It's during times like these that you can hear your heart beat. It's magnificent.

Andy Best (@andy_best)

I've always tried to slow time down. Wether it was to turn everything off and just stare at the sky. Or to hike deep into the woods, find a beautiful vista, and breathe in the fresh air. These places are inspiration for life. These places are my freedom. #StillWildFilm
