The promise of any sort of adventure can be a magic tonic to any rather dull and ordinary day.
National Geographic knows a few things about adventure, and this website brings together fascinating photographs, essays, itineraries, and other items that will be most useful to the casual or extreme adventurer.
Visitors can look over the "Beyond the Edge" blog, which features everything from meditations on skiing the Jackson Hole backcountry to a video tour of the Powder Highway in British Columbia.
Users shouldn't miss some of the "best of" lists here, which include "World's Best Ski Towns" and "Word's Best Surf Towns." A list that will give cause for inspiration (and perhaps debate) is the "Ultimate Adventure Bucket List," which includes activities like hiking up to Machu Picchu and a trek around Java's volcanoes.
