It's not just you. I really like Instagram, but it can be a double-edged sword, especially with nature photos. "Oh, this looks sweet and easy!!!". And then you go and do because you get hurt from being under prepared. It doesn't always accurately represent the conditioning or other barriers to entry for harder hikes and climbs. There's a recent article on this specific to the 14ers in Colorado. But, as a whole, for what I use it for, it is a great social media platform and tool for finding places to go or possibly even meeting people.
