Spring is the season of party shredding and corn snow. Here's to hoping the snow sticks around for a bit longer. Photo: @libbe_ellis

@lesmophoto and @tayhemming arrived five minutes before the visitor center closed to get a permit to hike and camp at @whitesandsnps in New Mexico. They packed the right bags, tent and outdoor clothing, but one thing they underestimated was how cold the sand would get. Rather than bringing two pads like they do when they sleep on the snow, they only had one each. It was frigid! The next morning their tent was covered in frost when they woke up to capture this photo of the sunrise. Photo: @lesmophoto

If you know anything about our Gearhead @jimmyelam, you know that he loves to run. A few weeks ago, he went down to the San Rafael Swell in southern Utah with his new @ospreypacks Duro 6 Hydration Pack and put in 40 miles. Here are some of his first impressions: "I love how light and durable it is - the pack doesn't bounce around or move at all. I use my phone for GPS routes and photos while on runs, so it's nice to have the front zip pocket to put it in. I'd recommend this pack for anyone who plans to be on the trail for 1-8 hours at a time." - link in bio.

Congrats to @ameliacaddy on her first trad lead at the sea cliffs of Tasmania's Freycinet National Park. "It was really infectious to be around such a psyched climber and it was an honor to watch her pass this milestone in her climbing." - Photo: @_mitchsb_

Death Valley was the first stop on our #roadtrip to find those golden moments in the outdoors. We hiked, ran, laughed, ate well, and did flips off the top of sand dunes. More importantly, though, we got to know the people we were traveling with. Meet @mylifeofadventures_rachellynn - Backcountry Customer - link in bio.

When you spend four days on a boat in Indonesia, it feels great to be back on shore, even if it's just long enough to take a little sunset dip. Photo: @wheretowillie

It feels good to be lost in the right direction, in a city, with all your snowboard gear. Backcountry Gearhead @pclaw11 on waiting for his train in Japan in search of powder. #JaPow #BackcountryEmployee

Are you starting to plan a #roadtrip? Here's a tip from Gearhead Ben Rabinowitz (@roughnecknine0): Give yourself enough time to relax. Too often the itinerary is crammed because you want to experience all these different places. Having down time is important, it let's the trip evolve naturally.
