take a hike

our july catalog and its stunning location have really got me longing for a rugged hiking and camping vacation.  all I want to do is take off on a weekend with nothing but a rucksack on my back and explore the great outdoors.  i am a summer person but i am already dreaming about fall because i think that would be the perfect time of year to do this… hearing the crunch of the leaves beneath my feet, brisk morning air that still warms up to the sun, moonlit dips in a lake and drying off by a fire with a big cozy blanket wrapped around me…

here’s what i would bring:

1. vintage patched travels backpack; 2. fp super skinny cord; 3. we the free rugged trench coat; 4. portland lace up boot & cableknit tall sock; 5. motorcuff long sleeve scoop thermal; 6. eternal sunshine shirt; 7. southwest poncho.

Appalachian Trail Sign

i would really love to hike the appalachian trail –maybe not the entire length (from maine to georgia or vice versa) but at least part of it. i had the opportunity to do this once in high school and i always kindof regretted not taking it.

We’re leaving on Sunday for a 7 day hiking/camping trip. We’re camping half the time, and staying in a Yurt in the middle of Colorado backcountry the other nights.

Our favorite place to camp/hike is Colorado. This will be our third Summer in a row to go. The weather is perfect -70’s during the day, and low 40’s at night. It makes for perfect hiking.
Also Colorado is beautiful in the Summer, everything is so green and all the wildflowers are blooming.
