In 2015, while visiting Yellowstone with a group of friends, Aidan Weltner had an idea not uncommon to high school boys: “I started taking pictures of my friends mooning the camera.”
This is how the Instagram account Get Your Ass Into Nature (GYAIN) was born: as a joke. But it’s not a joke anymore. It’s a self-described “movement.” The account has garnered over 100,000 followers, spawned countless like-minded accounts, and told over 1,000 stories.
Each post shows a different person, fully nude or partially, but there are always three things: a butt, a beautiful scene, and a story told by the poster in the description.
