MyLifeOutdoors featured in Backpacker Magazine – Sort of

It has been more then a week since my last post. Mainly because I have been out of town engaging in many hikes and other activities I hope to share with you soon. Until then I wanted to point out something I have been slightly excited about.

Not long ago I was contacted by Backpacker Magazine about a trip report for Guadalupe Peak. They asked me for some information and said they wanted to feature my trip in their June National Parks issue. Of course I was happy to oblige.

The Guadalupe Mountains blurb in Backpacker Magazine

 If you look on page 97 of the June 2011 issue of Backpacker magazine you will see small blurb about Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Neither my name nor is listed in the magazine, only a simple refrence to trip ID 1089414. To look up trip ID 1089414 go to and it will take you to a featured destination that says “Mapped by Steven Smith,” from there you will see a map I created along with pictures from my trip.

My Featured Destination as it appears on

So there you have it. Its not much…but I thought I would share it with you anyway. With a little luck, maybe I can draw some more attention to Texas’ best hikes. until then you can read more about the featured Guadalupe Peak trip by going here.
