Way back in February of 2016, me and a couple of close friends had elaborately planned a week-long backpacking trip to the Canadian Rockies for late September.
So getting outside and camping for the first time can be expensive if you buy all of your own gear. But that doesn't have to be the case.
It’s been almost a year since I left college in Chattanooga TN for a small Georgia town nicknamed “Dis-gusta” (Augusta, GA).
This was my second backpacking trip in Yosemite, with one of my favorite ladies, Meredith, to one of my favorite parks and most breathtaking landscape that one could dream up.
I'll be honest, I don't really know what to say here. I'm sitting in a Starbucks between Mt. Rushmore and Badlands Natl. Park, in a place called Rapid City.
It was just over a year ago when I took my first trip to the Canadian Rockies. I planned a trip for the end of summer and instantly fell in love with the landscape.
When we moved to Vancouver Island about a month ago it was still summer. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of sunshine we were getting and the number of days that were "shorts weather".
For the 8 years I've lived in Colorado, I've been most enthralled by the short but incredible fall foliage season in the high country.
In Idaho, taking the road less traveled is a wonderful way to explore the state.
It was 4:30 on a Sunday morning. My alarm had just woken me up for a full day of adventure.
There's no better way to get to know the wilderness in Oregon than spending a few days exploring the backcountry.

The idea of camping during the week while I was working came from…….well…..why not? The idea of camping in seven different spots in seven consecutive days around Golden came from….well….
Camping in the snow adds a mountain of challenges and fun, to what would normally be a routine camping trip. Obviously the colder and more serious the winter weather, the more gear you have to pack.
When fall makes its much-anticipated appearance in North Georgia, in-the-know leaf peepers head to one spot: Brasstown Bald near Blairsville.
Soooo, Half Dome. You’ve heard of it. You’ve probably seen pictures.
Kolmanskop was a once bustling diamond town built on the fringe of the vast and never-ending Namib desert & Skeleton Coast of Namibia, what remains is a stunning, unique & temporal photographic world.
I have been to New England a couple of times but never during Fall. I was blown away by the beauty of the landscapes at this time of the year.
The trip started late August back home in Kirkland, Washington. Our last backpacking trip before we all left for school again in the fall.
