Goods and inspiration for the journey.

We feature some of our favorite places - hiking in Flagstaff, Arizona waterfall hikes - and our favorite gear: waxed canvas backpacks, canvas and leather duffles, waxed canvas aprons. Our gear reviews include the Topo Designs Klettersack review, Topo Designs Daypack review and more.

Look at a topographic map of the mountainous terrain above Durango and you are certain to see an excess of high altitude lakes.
Many have trails going right to them, but most of these are demanding hikes, especially for the casual hiker. However, those seeking a shorter excursion to a backcountry pool are in luck. Clocking in at 2 miles round-trip and 400 feet of elevation change, the Potato Lake Trail is an easy hike to a beautiful backcountry lake.
Oh, and by the way, if you want to sound like local, call it Spud Lake instead of Potato Lake!
Glacier National Park is a hiker’s paradise, with the beauty and majesty of a view from a high mountain pass being many of the top hiking destinations. Of course, the hikes up to renowned saddles like Swiftcurrent Pass or Pitamakan Pass are long and tough — being a strong hiker is a prerequisite to make it up while having a good time too.
What about folks that want an easy to moderate hike under 3 miles that will achieve a spectacular view of Glacier’s alpine peaks and lakes? Enter: Hidden Lake Pass.
Located a mere 1.5 miles uphill from the Logan Pass Visitor Center, the hike up to Hidden Lake Pass is a popular one. For experienced hikers it will seem crowded, but for the average Glacier visitor, it’s a great foray into the Rocky Mountain permafrost.
