Chill Out in a Hot Tub!

There's no better place to relax in the outdoors than a natural hot spring. 

California's Eastern Sierras have a high concentration of geothermal activity, which means lots of natural hot springs to explore! Rock Tub Hot Springs is one of several natural springs in the area and is an amazing place to enjoy a relaxing soak session with scenic mountain views.

Start the Day Off with a Good Meal!

Granola and camping go hand-in-hand and sometimes you don't get one without the other. This recipe has a tarragon twist to add a kick to an already easy-to-make and delicious camp classic.

Dress for Success!

Hiking is one of our favorite outdoor pastimes. Whether you're backpacking for miles through the wilderness or taking a quick stroll through your local park, hikes are a great way to exercise, move your body, and explore nature.

The key to staying comfortable on your next hike is as simple as wearing the right clothes for the job. This post from Barefoot Theory has great tips for how to layer and dress for the job in varying weather conditions.
