This week we ran a contest asking everyone to tell us about their personal summits this past summer. While classic summits such as Rainier, Denali and Mt. Baker represented we also had hiking in New Hampshire, a sunset shot, and climbing in Colorado. Whether physically reaching the summit of a peak or challenging yourself in another way, the outdoors are one of the best places to be able to go outside your comfort zone and achieve in new ways.
Two weekends ago we headed upstate to hike the infamous Devils Path. Two days on one of the toughest trails in the Northeast meant we had to keep our energy and calories up. Luckily, our supply van brought in delicious food and even a camp oven on Saturday night. This was the first time we had brought the BEMCO Backpackers Oven out on the trail so we were excited to test it in natural conditions.
