Andes Mountains

This photo collection comes from a week-long trek through the Andes Mountains to Machu Picchu. From 16,000 feet, these dramatic landscapes produced a feeling of comparative insignificance. The journey across the South American Continental Divide brought us to one of the world's most iconic symbols of adventure.

About

I'mTom Malone

Writer, Teacher, and Photographer

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, I spent time in both a raw, urban environment and in the vast, green rainforests that circle the city. I gained an appreciation for the beauty and intricacies of both settings. As an adult, that drive to explore new places only grows stronger.

I push myself to seek new adventures, meet new people, discover new places, and learn as much as possible. Whether on a road trip in Colorado, or in an Incan ruin in Peru, I find joy and fulfillment in the art of adventure. Through writing and photography, I try to capture how I see the world: optimistic, bright, and full of wonder.

I look forward to connecting and collaborating with fellow adventurers who have a passion for exploration, learning, and creativity. Don't hesitate to connect through the contact form, or across social media. In the meantime, enjoy the adventure!
