Couch Surfing USA: Three People, Two Dogs and One Futon


Three friends, two dogs, one futon: the perfect formula for a summer road trip. Reddit user thezim0090 recently shared this collection of photos from three of his friends, who decided to document a cross-country road trip by capturing lighthearted portraits of themselves seated with their two dogs on their van’s futon in the middle of amazing landscapes.

Starting in Vermont, the group made their way to places like Alaska and California over the course of four months. At each location, the friends set up a camera and tripod, piled onto the worn futon with their dogs, and struck casual poses in front of stunning mountains, lakes, fields, and canyons. Sharp-eyed viewers will notice that in each photo, whether the travel buddies are in Big Sur or near the Gulkana River, one of the three friends is looking away from the camera, adding a fun sense of action and continuity to their road trip mementos.

Highline Festival in Monte Piana: Hammocks Miles above Ground


Doesn’t taking a nap in a hammock outdoors sound lovely? Perhaps not when you’re hanging in the air, thousands of feet above ground, between two mountains in the Italian Alps! Which is exactly what these adventurous folks did during the International Highline Meeting in Monte Piana, Italy.

For this stunt a special highline set up was rigged which could carry the weight of all the people on the line at the same time. In total there were 22 in 16 hammocks on the main line. The line was around 50m above the ground and 50m in distance. The whole action lasted around 2 hours and the people involved were highline athletes attending on the festival. The action took place at around 2200 – 2400 m.a.s.l. and most of the people stayed up on the mountain during the whole festival for a whole week. (Photos by Sebastian Wahlhuetter Photography)
