There is nothing quite like exploring Olympic National Park’s backcountry. From Staircase to Seven Lakes Basin, out to Quinault and Shi Shi Beach, the wilds of Olympic offer unrivaled beauty for those lucky enough to backpack out there. Whether you are a fan of the seven most stunning trips into Olympic’s Backcountry, or prefer to find somewhere else to pitch a tent for the night or seven, one thing is for sure- everyone needs to have an Olympic backpacking experience. That is why we are sharing an important press release from Olympic National Park to make sure you get the campsite you desire.
Once January rolls around, we here at the Outdoor Society like to compile a list of the most-visited National Parks around the country. For the author of this post, this day is a holiday, giving me reason to spend hours pouring over stats that few people care about. Every year, aside from a few jumps and dives, not much changes. However, these lists can help you know which parks are popular and which ones are seeing a drop in visitation, giving you more of a chance to find silence and solitude on the trails you love.
This week’s episode is all about the Pacific Crest Trail, and the weather, of course the weather.
Mathias again didn’t get the award for ultra runner of the year and Doug got stared down by a coyote, but aside from that, we’re doing just fine.
Thank you all for coming out to our first ‘Stories of Adventure‘ event at Swantown Inn & Spa. What an incredible night, thank you!
It’s wet on our runs, and cold, and windy, and soon probably snowy. Runners, embrace the harsh weather and enjoy those miles breathing cold air and refresh your mind. Our sport is growing and your trusty podcast creators are diving into some cool stats from a cool survey highlighting some incredible figures.
What a show! Come run with us 100 miles in a week!
We all have scars. Some visible, some hidden, some physical and some emotional, but everyone has at least one. At least, those who have lived, loved, lost, and limped. Some scars eventually fade and are all but forgotten without the perfect light. While we typically hide our scars as best we can, scars are identifying markers, telling stories with their forever changed skin. During the winter of 2019-2020 in Yellowstone National Park, one scar bridged nearly two years of memories between a human and a bison.
