Whirlwind trips to the desert the past two weekends have my head reeling and of course lusting for more. A little preview of one of the trips!
Last week REI launched its Forces of Nature campaign last week and released this sweet video discussing women’s equality in climbing and well pretty much life.
As for more women doing amazing things, Kalen Thorien’s 270-mile solo backpacking trip through the Sierra’s made for one amazing film, Out in the Sierra.
The battle for Bears Ears and now Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is heating up and I can’t keep up with all the news. Radiowest’s America’s National Monuments Under Review podcast provides a great history of both monuments and the Antiquities Act and a discussion of where we’re headed.
Speaking of keeping up… How to keep up outdoors, something I personally struggle with and something I believe is more of a confidence issue than an actual speed problem.
