Recently I visited Kluane National Park. After a few hours of driving and only a hike through the forest, I was in my element—a world of rock and grand vistas. My friend and I were on Sheep Mountain, a very popular trail, and I can see why it is... more

Walk … “You weren’t in any hurry to walk,” my mother said as she showed me a photo of myself at 15 months, happily sitting on a blanket in the yard. But after a late start, there was no stopping me. more

Unless you are one of those people who cannot go anywhere except on a Quad, then your feet are still your primary means of travel. Our feet suffer less and work longer when they are cared for and housed in proper fitting, good quality footwear. more

It was 6:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning in Whitehorse as my friend Nicole pulled into my driveway in her large black pickup truck. I threw my rucksack and snowshoes onto the back seat and we started our venture on the icy, dark Alaska Highway towards... more

I have not made the trip to mainland Alaska yet, but my experience of those oddballs and genuinely interesting characters that live in the tiny village of Skagway truly are one of a kind. Hiking and camping are certainly a great way to get out and... more
