Tip of the day

Understand and protect your sleeping bag's temperature rating! 
Remember, these are low-end, assisted ratings. 

1) You will need an insulated sleeping pad and some clothing layers to keep comfortable down to your bag's temperature rating.

2) Learn how to properly close and cinch your bag around your body to retain heat.

3) Store your bag by hanging it  - not crammed in the stuff sack. This keeps the fill from getting compressed and losing its insulating power.

 


 

Featured Trail

Pawnee Buttes - Colorado

Rating: Easy

An easy one and a half-mile trail is open year round and provides an opportunity to view the Buttes up close. Mountain bikes are not allowed on the trail. The Buttes stand approximately 300 feet above the surrounding prairie. As the rock is crumbling sandstone, climbing on the Buttes is not recommended. Take a hat, sunscreen lotion and water. Temperatures topping one hundred degrees can be encountered in July and August.

Hawks and falcons nest in the rocky cliffs. Please do not disturb them.
