    Take a load off in these four must-chill Hammocking Spots

    The Value of Wilderness

    The global pandemic, infuriating racial injustice, and a polarized presidential election made 2020 one of the most trying and stressful years for all of us. It was by far the hardest year I have ever gone through, as I was dealing with a number of other difficult situations on top of everything else.
  • Tiny Home : Off the Grid Living

    Tiny Home : Off the Grid Living

    Van life was getting tight with the two of us in my old dodge caravan. Fitted out with a plywood bed in the back tall enough to shove bins of gear and skis under the bed. The kayaks lived on the roof, while the wet and really stinky gear was stored in a roof box.

    How Nature Heals the Mind and Body

    In this modern world in which where we live, many of us city-dwellers can say we are deprived of the healing powers of the outdoors. Office jobs run 9 to 5, and from 5 until bedtime, we find ourselves binging Netflix, staring at our phones, or working overtime. Screen time has taken the place of green time, and the norm seems to be as though we are rushing through life as quickly as possible.

    Completing the Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup

    The Wasatch Ultimate Ridge Linkup is a route that circumnavigates Little Cottonwood Canyon, an iconic playground of mountains, valleys, ridges, lakes and ski resorts that sits just above our home town of Salt Lake City Utah.
