Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Cool Mountain Escapes
This month, for our friends at Great Outdoor Provision Co., we’re blogging about August adventures that can save your summer. The one thing they must have in common? Incentive to beat the heat, be it from on high (preferably from cool climes above 5,000 feet) or in or on the water. So far, we’ve written about five cool Piedmont paddle trips and five cool Piedmont hikes (which involve water).
This week, we’ll be writing about five cool mountain hikes. To get in the spirit, we trot out this reel of clips from last year’s GetHiking! Classic Hikes series. They originate either from on high or in water. We trust they’ll help you through the latest heat wave and whet your appetite for our recommendations later in the week (which you’ll find here.)
