Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share with you 5 of my favorite outdoor and adventure blogs. These are blogs I discovered last Spring while planning our 30day National Parks Trip, and then when we got home and I wanted to connect with other outdoor lovers.
I've talked about this site a few times before. It was by far the best starting point when I was planning my trip. I kept reading everywhere how difficult the Grand Canyon was to hike and was really intimidated until I read Ash's tips. It was hard...but I felt better going in thanks to her info!
Ash is a former National Parks Service Ranger (umm how cool is that?!) who now blogs and sells her tips and trip itineraries on her own site. She also does group hikes every once in awhile- you have to sign up for her e-mail newsletter if you want to be in the know for that.
WWH is a West Coast based organization for...Women Who Hike. They offer a membership patch and group hikes on the West Coast and are expanding to other cities. I love following their instagram for inspiration and motivation. Their blog is full of great stories of women adventuring- their struggles and triumphs along the trails.
I discovered this site via Pinterest and fell in love with the really useful camping and hiking tips. There's info here on EVERYTHING...from matching your adventure to your brews, choosing the right sleeping bag, staying hydrated to how to do your #1 & #2 in the woods. TONS of information here.
Another Instagram find. She captures the true spirit of outdoor love through her kids. Its everything I imagine my life to be when I become a mom...so I'm reading her blog now to help me prepare. She shares her adventures hiking and camping with little ones. It's honest and genuine- not perfect but that's why I love it.
This is a great site for the hiker who works a full time job...so basically most people. Rachel has great tips on how to balance the two and provides great trail info for Cali hikes. You can still enjoy her site if you aren't in California...she's got lots of prep and gear info too.
