Enter to win!

From hiking dog jealousy to estimating the calorie-to-weight ratio of entire grocery stores, outdoor adventurers have unique experiences all around. 

Here are just a few to make you laugh, paired with watercolor interpretations of outdoorsy absurdity. 

 

1. When you pull on your favorite hiking pants and wrappers pour out from the pockets. 

 

 

2. When you take leave no trace principles everywhere you go... and maybe a little too far.

 

 

3. When your finances are getting tight and you "don't know why."

 

 

4. When a friend keeps saying they want to hike with you... and this happens. 

 

*Ten miles and three days later:*

 

 

 

5. When someone asks, "What is your obsession with wool?"

 

 

6. When you are constantly considering how much money you could save by moving into your tent. 

 

 

7. When you begin packing everything like a backpack... even purses and grocery bags. 

 

Regardless of having to restrain ourselves in city parks, outdoor lovers have challenging, growing, and beautiful experiences to share (If only all those stickers could fit on our water bottles...).

Wilderness Connects Everyone
Wilderness Connects Everyone

by Erin Gautier April 28, 2019

In the past, hiking and being outdoors with people of other backgrounds, cultures, languages, and countries has been an incredible experience. It is not all relative to how much nature is valued in that context, or to how exciting the activity is. It is not solely about the pictures taken and ways that our own pride can be lifted by showing off the tall mountain we climbed or the exotic animals we saw. While I enjoy these things as much as anyone, they do not alone account for the extraordinary connection and leveling effect of nature on all people.

Why and How to Journal Your Hikes
Why and How to Journal Your Hikes

by Erin Gautier April 18, 2019

The most compelling reason to trail journal is the wholeness it creates. While you might tend to hike for fitness or to clear your mind, taking a few moments to set intention and focus helps connect your physical experience and mental/emotional state with your surroundings. Suddenly, you notice details that you would have passed by before. You find yourself tuned in to the natural world around you, and can move forward with a clear mind.
