Our main complaint is the lack of slides. You should be able to get from the top of a steep hike to camp in one go! All kidding aside, we have scoured the internet and found 20 one-star reviews about National Parks...and they are pretty funny, and yes, they're real. Click to read: http://bit.ly/2fEiFjq .

Thanks @hargenshnargen for the entertaining read.

It's that glorious time of year! Outdoor retailers are slashing prices on the outdoor gear you've been eyeballing. So before you head over to the recreation equipment (inc.) store, do some groundwork and read up on the REI Half Dome Plus Tent, a two-plus-person kingdom of a backpacking tent.

I see all the 2018 PCT hikers and I am so envious of their journey and being on the PCT. I suppose my heart’s desire to be back on the PCT will fade, but until then, I’ll live vicariously through them. A big should out to @pctassociation and @lekiusa for the new trekking poles that were gifted to me for raising money for the pcta last year, thanks to many of you! I can’t wait to try them out on my Tour du Mont Blanc adventure next month!

Still one of my favorite places on earth. I’m visiting 6 new countries this year, on 3 big adventures, so be excited for new photos and new blog posts. Yes, I am going to finish the PCT blog, just got busy with life I suppose. .

"Plans change people. Plans change", says our writer, @arthur_mcmahon, after his third attempt to complete a 330-mile stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail though California's Castle Crags National Park to Crater Lake in Oregon. Arthur completed the PCT thru-hike's 2,650 miles a few summers ago, with the exception of the Castle Crag section (#tendonitis is a real problem). Since then he has returned three times, each time being turned from the trail due to unforeseen circumstances. This past summer he made a solo-attempt, but due to the fires and trail closures, Arthur had to end the trip shortly (not after seeing some crazy cougar chases!). But, if we know anything about Arthur, we know he will be back at Castle Crag's for that 100%.... Have you ever re-attempted a hike that you were unable to complete? Tell us about those problematic trails below.... And check out Arthur's story here: http://bit.ly/2wRrOjP .

Backpackers.com is built on three core values.
Core Value #1: We are Stoked | On nature, on campfires, on trail songs. On backflips into alpine lakes and giving the thirsty pup some water. On roasting marshmallows with whittled sticks and gazing at the night sky. We are facilitators of fun, and want to hike alongside you.
Aside from spectacular views, what gets you STOKED when adventuring the great outdoors or conquering concrete jungles? Share below. .

Thank you @camadams for the stoke-fueling original image!

Core Value #2: We are You | From the walk around the park to the cross-country trail, we are the people who seek outside for the sake of outside. Anyone can love and live in the outdoors, and we think everyone should.
We’re here to do it with you. ... *GIVEAWAY* We got a handful of Backpacker stickers that are longing to be forever-embedded on your water-bottle. To win stickers: Tag an adventure buddy and follow @Backpackerscom (for more outdoor-related info!). Unlimited tags! Contest closes 5/24/18. .

Thank you @barchpou for the amazing original image.

Core Value #3: We are Mindful | About keeping our lands pure. About gear that lasts. About disconnecting from the world to reconnect with nature. About the trail, and the beer after the trail. Mindfulness means thinking critically about our experience in the outdoors, from the products we use to our impact on the wild..... Our team all participates in mindfulness in their own ways.... How do YOU practice mindfulness? Tell us in the comments.... .

Our mission is to empower all walks of life to be ambassadors of the outdoors. Our goal is to provide you with straightforward choices when it comes to gear. While gear is not a requirement to explore and enjoy the outdoors, the right gear in the right context goes a long way to being comfortable and safe...What kind of outdoor articles are you interested in reading?

It's #nationaldirtydishesday. What tricks do you guys have for cleaning dishes in the backcountry? We pray that a Dish Fairy will come during the night (quietly, as to not disturb our slumber), and will take care of those extra-dried on sticky "instameals" off of our backcountry utensils. We love insulated bottles that are good for drink and food.
Thanks @arthur_mcmahon for the images (for the full review on the iconic Stanley Classic Vaccuum thermos check out: http://bit.ly/2IV3brv ) .

The idea of a "mother" is different for everyone and we want to celebrate all mothers for the guidance, love, and patience they give in our lives. And knowing when we are up to no good, too 😉 .

#FlashBackFriday to last summer, somewhere on the John Muir Trail, our writer @kaymkieffer trekked 210 miles over the course of three weeks. In fact, Kara is currently doing a mega-walkabout on the #PacificCrestTrail on a mission to protect, promote, and preserve the PCT as an ambassador for @pctassociation . Hike on, Kara! .

Check out my story about Havasu Falls on @backpackerscom (link in bio). It was a transformative experience to hike this trail and to reflect upon it in this post. Please share.
.

@backpackerscom - Havasupai, or Havasu Falls is one of the most picturesque destinations in the American Southwest due to its turquoise waters, soaring waterfalls, and the striking contrast between the harsh desert and this lush oasis.

Havasupai is a dream destination for many, and our gear tester @seabasscan was beyond stoked to descend into the canyon for 20 miles of grueling downhill and uphill backpacking. "I am most alive when I have a pack on my back and dirt under my feet. Havasupai reignited my love for this activity that has become a passion and an obsession, and I am so grateful to this place for restoring my spirit after one of the most challenging times of my life."
