Looking for a way to make next summer unforgettable? How does gaining valuable knowledge, making friends, and giving back to the earth sound? Joining a summer conservation corp is the perfect way to gain amazing experience that you’ll never forget! Here is a quick overview of some top conservation corps around the country.         The Student Conservation Association is a fantastic place to start, and has opportunities for all ages to get involved. They offer Community Crews, Regional Crews, National Crews and Internships. I have personally participated in a National Crew and can honestly say that the friends I made and the knowledge I gained will stay with me forever. My experience began by submitting an application online and I can remember the day the email arrived that I had been selected. I was so excited and could not wait to learn where I would be spending a part of my summer. It felt like forever to find out that the beautiful hills of Blue Ridge National Park, Virginia would be my home for one month. Fast forward 2 months I remember feeling excited but anxious because I was just about to meet the people I would...
“Yesterday we went on a 7.2 mile hike and on the way down the mountain we ran into a little problem. A random hiker’s dog was struck with heat exhaustion with 3 miles left to go and couldn’t make the rest of the hike."

Asheville, NC, July 28, 2016 – Eagles Nest Outfitters, creators of packable camping hammocks and fun outdoor accessories, continues to broaden their offerings with a full line of new products presented at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show. While hammocks and suspension straps are ENO’s go-to products, the team mindfully enhances and expands their product line while staying on top of the hammock game.  “One of our must exciting new products is the Nomad Hammock Stand,” said Lane Nakaji, General Manager. “Its lightweight aluminum design is streamlined and easy to assemble, and makes hammocking an option in locations lacking trees for suspension.  Our goal is to take all of the challenges out of hammocking, making it simple and relaxing no matter where you are, or who you are.” Another addition to the lightweight line is the Helios XL Suspension System.  The Helios XL is designed using Dyneema with a bury splice adjustment system.  It has all of the light and strong aspects of the original Helios Suspension System, but has an addition 5 feet for a total of 13 feet of usable feet.  ENO will also be adding a third chair to their product line.  While the first two chairs offer...
As my summer vacation came to a close and I flew back out to Gunnison, Colorado to begin my sophomore year as a Recreation and Outdoor Education student, I couldn’t resist reminiscing about the wild adventures that my first year of college had brought me. From rock climbing in Indian Creek, Utah, to canyoneering in the North Wash of Utah, to local expeditions of backpacking and backcountry skiing— I had had quite the year. As I made the journey west and moved into my on-campus apartment, my excitement grew about what this year would hold for me. Syllabus week came and went, and my friends and I started brainstorming for our first trip. Nothing big, as none of us were acclimated to the 8,000 ft. elevation yet, but something memorable and something to properly kick off our year at Western State Colorado University. We ultimately settled on a 4.5 mile hike up to Green Lake, located in Crested Butte— just a 35 minute drive from our campus. The night before, I packed my backpack with my sleeping bag, warm layers for the night, random (but essential) foods, and finally, my DoubleNest ENO hammock accompanied by Atlas Straps to ensure a...

Most serious hikers would agree that a good hike should have some distinctive attribute that makes it memorable. A three mile stroll through the woods is fine, but throw in a waterfall or a cliff-side trail and it quickly becomes something much more noteworthy. Nothing fits the bill more than climbing to the top of a volcano. Whether it’s active or dormant, a volcanic hike promises to be anything but ordinary. Here are a few of the best volcano hikes in the world…well, at least the best volcano hikes we have done…OK, the only volcano hikes we have done.   Cerro Chato – La Fortuna, Costa Rica (Dormant) Hiking Cerro Chato provides hikers with the rare opportunity to swim in a volcano (water not magma). We did this hike on our honeymoon last summer and it was easily one of the highlights of the trip. The resorts and travel agencies in the area will recommend doing this hike with a tour guide which costs over $100 per person, but we would recommend taking a taxi to the trail head and climbing without a guide. The entrance fee is only $12. The tour groups that we passed all seemed miserable and...
