They say the best camera is the one you have with you, and as smartphone cameras have improved we find ourselves regularly leaving our DSLR at home and taking hiking photos with our iPhone. Here are fifteen of the tricks and tips that have helped us capture our adventures with our iPhone.
The CloudLine team spends a good portion of everyday in the shipping department, packing up our premiummerino wool hiking socks and shipping them out to happy hikers. To pass the time while we work, we like to listen to a few favorite outdoor themed podcasts. These podcasts also often keep us entertained as we make the drive from Seattle to Olympic National park, the North Cascades, or weekend adventures down to Oregon. Each of these podcasts inspire us with ideas for new adventures, stories that capture our imaginations, and provide tips for backpacking, hiking, and more.
Even the most dedicated adventurers sometimes need a little inspiration to get outside. With that in mind, we've gathered five of our favorite outdoor quotes to inspire you to make time for adventure. These are the quotes we aspire to live by. Quotes we recite when we are stuck at work and wish we were hiking. So get inspired, pull on your favorite pair ofhiking socks and hit the trail!
I tend to paint the mountains I'm most familiar with, the Teton Range in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Of all the mountains I've traveled to see, they are, in my opinion, the most beautiful. To climb them, they are unforgiving. To look at, they are majestic. And to paint, they challenging. No matter how many times I go into the mountains, there is always a new trail... the same way I paint them... there is always a new way.
One of our favorite outdoor adventure podcasts is MTNmeister with Ben Schenck. Each week, Ben interviews an extraordinary individual in the worlds of Thru-hiking, climbing, and beyond. Anew episode is out today and we highly recommend giving it a listen!
Popcorn is one of the easiest snacks to make when backpacking and hiking. If you have a backpacking stove and a pot, the only ingredients you need are popcorn, oil, and salt.
