One of the most popular backcountry hikes in #Zion #NationalPark, The Subway is not to be missed. This unique #slotcanyon was sculpted by the Left Fork of North Creek, and moving water chisels the rock floor, leaving behind shallow potholes. This amazing photo by Tiffany Nguyen (@tiffpenguin) captures the size and scale of The Subway. To explore The Subway, visitors must get permits and it is subjected to daily limits.

NASA released a false-color image of Pluto on Thursday, revealing an unprecedented view of the dwarf planet’s vividly contrasting patches of terrain. The picture is a composite of multiple images taken by the New Horizons spacecraft, captured 280,000 miles away from Pluto in the days before the July 14 flyby. Photograph by @NASA. See more images of Pluto on time.com/science.
Gorgeous Pluto! The dwarf planet has sent a love note back to Earth via our New Horizons spacecraft, which has traveled more than 9 years and 3+ billion miles. This is the last and most detailed image of Pluto sent to Earth before the moment of closest approach, which was at 7:49 a.m. EDT Tuesday - about 7,750 miles above the surface -- roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India - making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth. This stunning image of the dwarf planet was captured from New Horizons at about 4 p.m. EDT on July 13, about 16 hours before the moment of closest approach. The spacecraft was 476,000 miles (766,000 kilometers) from the surface. Images from closest approach are expected to be released on Wednesday, July 15.

Wow, huh? Just...wow. Our third image from @thefella (Conor MacNeill) for this week-end's #lpInstaTakeover. "I spent about 4 days exploring the temples of #Bagan (#Burma), of which there are over 2000. The bigger temples get quite busy during sunset and the one I was standing on, Shwesandaw, was one of the busiest. That said, I got here early and manage to secure the best spot to watch the setting sun." - Conor #lonelyplanet #travel

B.B. King, the larger-than-life guitarist and singer who helped popularize electric blues and brought it to audiences for more than six decades, died Thursday in Las Vegas. He was 89. Into his late eighties, King toured the world year-round as the unrivaled ambassador of the blues. His indelible style — a throaty, throttling vocal howl paired with a ringing single-note vibrato sound played on his electric guitar named Lucille — defined the genre. He won 15 Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. "He is without a doubt the most important artist the blues has ever produced," Eric Clapton wrote in his 2008 biography, "and the most humble and genuine man you would ever wish to meet. In terms of scale or stature, I believe that if Robert Johnson was reincarnated, he is probably B.B. King." For more remembrances of King, visit
Fourteen-year-old @robbiegriffith, who specializes in #parkour and trampolining, at Scotland’s Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. For a story about children in extreme sports, #NYTMag selected 10 young, and exceptionally accomplished, athletes and asked them about their perceptions of fear, greatest accomplishments and brushes with danger within their sports. The British sports photographer Levon Biss photographed the kids in action.
Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / @thephotosociety Karst hills punctuate privately owned fields of rapeseed near #Luoping in China’s Yunnan Province. The rape seed is harvested for cooking oil, the stalks are turned into home insulation, and beehives are brought in to make honey. With very little arable land to feed a large population, almost every scrap of flat fertile soil in China is used to grow something. To see more aerial photos of China go to @geosteinmetz #notadrone
Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / @thephotosociety A hazy sunrise on the Li River downstream from Guilin, China. The river is a major tourist destination in China, famous for a landscape of eroded limestone pinnacles, a geological formation known as karst. This part of the river is roadless, so I had to fly my paramotor carefully as there weren’t many places for an emergency landing. #beingthere #notadrone To see more aerial photographs from China visit @geosteinmetz
