Your First Hiking Adventure: Science-Backed Ways to Conquer Anxiety

Your First Hiking Adventure

By Caitlin Evans

I haven’t always been the outdoorsy type of person. Sure, I had always preferred walking instead of driving, and during the warmer months, my bicycle is my most prized possession, but hiking and camping were something entirely different.

Hiking and Chronic Conditions: Is it Possible to Make it Work?

Hiking and Chronic Conditions

By Caitlin Evans

I wasn’t always hooked on hiking as a form of physical exercise.

At first, my weekend excursions were about spending time with friends. We’d get up relatively early on a Saturday or Sunday morning and head to a nearby national park where we’d cover 5-10 miles, depending on the weather and route. But, it turned out, the more time I spent this way in nature, the more I realized how beneficial it was to my physical and mental health.

And that’s no surprise. After all, read more

I couldn’t believe that this waterfall actually had a fire just behind the waterfall and I just had to see it for myself to believe it!

This waterfall has a small grotto that read more

6 Trekking Pole Uses – of the non-traditional kind.

By Kristi Westberg

I used to feel like trekking poles were a sign of weakness, an extra couple of things to carry, and unnecessary to my kind of hiking. BUT the truth is whenever I came to a river crossing or was faced with a steep set of rocks I would often borrow someone else’s poles for extra support and balance.

Several years of this led me read more
