A Few Of My Favorite (Hiking) Things

Every year I log hundreds of miles on the trail. Through those miles, some gear rises to the top that I end up absolutely loving. Here are a few of them… There are a lot of sites/bloggers out there who do extensive reviews of products. They’ll list the “Top 10 day packs” and review them, […]

Winter is not for hibernating

I’m often asked if winter is the slow time of year for me. I’m definitely not running around like I am in the spring (product distribution), summer, and fall (hiking).

If you were to ask me which hike is my favorite hike, I probably would tell you the Pitamakan-Dawson Loop. I set out with a group of donors and staff from the Glacier Conservancy to do this loop and the sunny day, fantastic loop, and a boat ride was one for the books. Sinopah Mountain […]

Scenic Point 2017 by Mrs. Hike 734

Jake is currently in Yosemite National Park working on his next Hike 734 project.  If you regularly follow his blogs you might have seen me tagging along behind him on his hiking adventures. I won’t be able to join him in Yosemite until August, but that won’t keep me from hitting the trail. I wrapped […]
