Fourth-coming Adventures!

BBQs, fireworks, and parades might get all the 4th of July glory, but we think getting outdoors on an adventure with your friends or family is just as patriotic. Here are some ideas to wave your adventure flag!

1) Who Wants Seconds?

America is full of second chances. And that’s a very good thing when it comes to Redwood Regional Park in Oakland. Here majestic redwoods have been given a second chance after the originals were logged long ago…

2) Land of the Lakes

Dozens of high alpine lakes, spiky granite peaks, hiking trails galore… The Lakes Basin (about 90 minutes northwest of Tahoe) is a sublime Sierra basecamp with a laid back vibe. Take a weekend to explore this high-country wonderland…

3) Let’s Have a Little Funston

7) Do the 2017 Weekend Sherpa Adventure Challenge!

The Weekend Sherpa Adventure Challenge is back for its sixth year! Don’t let the name intimidate you: it’s free and easy to participate. Just get outdoors over the next few months and take a photo of yourself in action! And we’re excited to be teaming up with Line 39—their wines are the perfect partner to weekend adventures…
