Woof! I go absolutely crazy for woofers I see (and are allowed to pet!) on the trails! 🐺🧡Last weekend I bagged a local peak in my neck of the woods and saw a lot of great examples of responsible dog ownership including pups being leashed, plenty of water breaks and rest stops in the shade, and the use of booties to help protect those precious paws against the sharp and hot shale!
If you’re looking to take your fur baby along on your next backpacking trip, but don’t know where to begin in terms of planning and allocating the appropriate resources for them head on over to the Galavanting blog! We have an article: Avoiding A Ruff Time: Prepping Your Pup For Their First Hiking or Backpacking Trip that will cover off on all of those bases for you. Happy hiking! Feat. galavanter @yuniquekat .
Your pup deserves a place in this community. Don’t forget to tag @gogalavanting and use #GoGalavanting when you share your adventures! 🌸

State parks are rad, y’all. What’s a park you’ve visited in your state that‘s wowed you? 😯💥
Goblin Valley State Park in Utah is formed by a seasonal wash and contains thousands of mushroom-shaped pinnacles or hoodoos a few feet high someone obviously thought resembled goblins. The formations have large orange-brown boulders of hard rock atop weaker sandy layers which have eroded more quickly, as a result of millions of years of the combined effects of wind and rain. The park is easy to explore, by walking along one of three maintained paths, or just hiking off-trail over the level ground between the formations. Feat. galavanter @jesika_rose

NEW Galavanting guest blog by @she_colorsnature “I am still learning about how we got to this point in time. How did we get to this place where even black people are convincing other black people they don’t belong in the outdoors? I am definitely not that girl. I will give you ten reasons why you can, buy you a pair of thrifty sneakers and offer to carpool on my way to the trail head before you are given the chance to say ‘no thank you’.”
When I stumbled across Chelsea’s profile a few months back I was immediately inspired by her adventures as a mother of two and in the outdoor space. Her forthcomingness and hunger to connect with the outdoor community is refreshing and her piece on why we need to make space for POC in nature is poignant and uplifting. Do you have 10 minutes? Good. Invest it in some brain food and listen to what she has to say.

Galavanter @wendy.wanders “One of my favorite side effects of van life is freedom from the burden of furniture ownership. I used to waste my time thinking about what kind of headboard I should own. Now I’m so glad I don’t have one. It would have blocked this sunrise last weekend, during which we watched the pink light creep down the mountain peaks, while surrounded by deer who were placidly shocked when we woke up and started moving inside the van.” 🚐
There are over 4 million miles of road winding through the United States alone. What’s the longest road trip you’ve ever taken? What did you see along the way? Your best memory from the trip?
