Now that's a wild cat: The incredible pictures of Burma the feline adventurer who spent two years scaling America's most iconic peaks (and became a social media star along the way)
This blogger had trouble choosing which photos to post first, they are all so good.

This feline has gone places most humans can only dream of.
Instagram-famous, Burma the cat, has spent two and a half years scaling some of America's most iconic peaks alongside owner Stephen Simmons and dog companion, Puppi.
The two-year-old cat has racked up a huge 26,000 followers on social media during his adventures through snow, wind and rain.

Stephen Simmons, 49, who lives in Oregon, USA, revealed Burma has been interested in mountaineering since a very young age. He adopted eight-week-old Burma from a homeless woman during the winter months of 2013.
He carried the cat on a short walk into the forest before setting him - where surprisingly, the moggy appeared extremely comfortable. Since then, the pair - along with Puppi - have documented their travels from peaks in California and Oregon to across the East Coast. Burma has even paid a visit to Central Park.

Shortly after the launch of '@burmaadverturecat' Stephen began hastagging 'adventurecat' - a trend which soon caught on and saw thousands clicking follow to join the trio on their journeys.
Stephen said: 'It was my way of life and that's all I had to offer him. 'Running and climbing mountains had become an escape and something I needed, something that was good for me.
'Burma doesn't seem to know the difference between the top of 14,000ft steep summit spire and a more common place, like a simple trail through the forest.'

He added: 'Initially Burma's 'adventurecat' hashtag was unique to him and our lifestyle, and it's my belief that's where the title Adventure Cat started.
'Back then, if I clicked the hashtag, Burma's pictures were the only cat pictures that came up - with the occasional rare exception.
'Then it started catching on in the next year with other cats being referred to as adventure cats.'

This month, a website is set to be launched dedicated purely to Adventure Cats, offering information on leash and harness training and outdoor safety tips for cat owners.
Adventurecats.org say that they have already spoken to owners from the likes of Sweden, Russia, Australia and across North America.
Laura Moss, editor and co-founder of AdventureCats.org, said: 'I think there have always been people who take their cats on walks or hikes, but now it's just become more well-known because of social media, especially with photo-sharing sites and apps like Instagram.

'While outdoor excursions are great ways to exercise your cat or to address behavioural issues caused by boredom, I think one of the most positive things that can come out of Adventure Cats is busting stereotypes about cats and their owners.
'Often, cats are thought of as lazy and aloof - seeing cat owners engage with their animals in the great outdoors is a wonderful way to change people's minds about what it means to be a cat owner.
'I've interviewed people who take their cats on all kinds of adventures from camping in Canada to rock climbing in Colorado and surfing in Hawaii.'

So much to see, so much to learn.
Courage and determination
And a typical feline curiosity too.
