The backpacking accessory you've clearly been overlooking: a llama! - Thank you @walk0nthewildside for making our day with this awesome pic and making us want to immediately go on a backpacking trip with these adorable ungulates (correction - they're actually camelids!) 💪🏼✨

Congratulations to Abby and Seth, the @packingitout team, for making it to Washington and completing your mission! - 5,000 miles by bike and more than 2,000 pounds of trash cleaned up - this is truly a feat worth celebrating. Thank you for inspiring us all to do our part and look at things a little bit differently!

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” –Albert Einstein - - Big thanks to @jasonhummel for the stellar capture and camp inspiration⛺️✨

"When I hike I don't listen to music. Just silence and the sound the grass and snow crunching under my boots and myself breathing the cold air." - @koreefilms puts it perfectly (with this image and words). We couldn't agree more, there is something magical about heading outdoors and having that moment all to yourself.
