TRIP REPORT | Ogden Boulder Field - So, we forgot to follow up in the podcast on our quick trip up to the boulder field last night. Here's the written version: Below is a pick of Chase on the Tooth. Really, Chase is testing the stretchy-ness factor of Boulder Denim jeans for an upcoming blog so the actual bouldering wasn't much. But, we did walk through the boulder field and get on a rock for a few. Temps at 4:45pm were perfect. The trail is a mix between mud and ice, so use caution on the approach. All lower boulder field rocks are accessible with no snow build-up and little mud. Boulder on!

So what do you do in August? Well, you drink beer, play bird trivia, and get to know the Snarlin' Yarns. Brandi Bosworth with the Ogden Nature Center sat down with us this week to provide insight into the 3rd Annual Birds & Brews happening August 24th.
Ahhh, it's that time of year again, Summer OR, the greatest party in the outdoor industry. I mean, the highbrow gathering of outdoor industry professionals clinking Stanley shot glasses of fine whiskey lemonade over conversations of comparitive cuben fiber products, recent epics, and athlete sightings. It's a fast and frazzling 4 days of wicked awesome gear, friends, and beer. All the beer. And, yes, sometimes whiskey. But, mostly beer.
It took us 2 weeks to get this one right, but then we nailed it! From down by the Ogden River to the top of Powder Mountain, we spent time with full-time van-lifer, Jake Nelson, in The Vansion, discussing the realities of van life, how to build out your own van, and van hacks.
