Trip Recaps

Sometimes I think we forget why we call it a Wilderness. The land is wild. In some of the more frequented wilderness’ in america the land can seem tame. This is not the case with the Capitan Wilderness of the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico. This small little wilderness situated just north of Ruidoso NM has almost been forgotten if not abandoned by the forest service. Which makes this wilderness quite a bit more wild than others I have

This is one of several posts contributed by my wife. We hope for this to become a regular segment on MyLifeOutdoors. A valuable resource to women (and their husbands) who love the outdoors (or who, at least, wish to love the outdoors). This is My Wife Outdoors. Several months ago I was visiting Monahans Sandhills State Park when I picked up A Texas State Parks State Park Guide. I had rode with some friends to the park and on the way

Have you ever found a blog you really love only to discover its dead or inactive? I used to hate that! For many of my readers, you have probably begun to wonder the same thing about MyLifeOutdoors. Looking over the blog, my last post was back at the end of november.

An amazing view is made that much more amazing

Our goal was to hit Johnson’s lake, swing down to Stewart Lake, and finish it off with the Grand Finale: Lake Katharine and 13,600 foot Santa Fe Baldy.Johnsons Lake - Pecos Wilderness, NMPecos WildernessWe made the eight hour drive from Midland to Pecos NM, on Sunday July

What is the hardest hike you have ever attempted? Mine was a little 2 mile day hike that I thought I would knock out in a couple of hours. Some friends and I were on the Island of St. Lucia doing some mission work. We had arranged for a friend to take us up Gros Piton early one morning.Gros Piton from the World Heritage MonumentGros Piton and its little sister Petit Ption are Caribbean land marks.

My family and I were deep in the backcountry on a remote forest service road when my tire light came on. We had been driving on some pretty rugged terrain and I knew my tires were taking a beating. I jumped out to check the tire, sure enough, a flat. No big deal, I thought. I’ll just throw on the spare. I told my wife what had happened, and that it might be a while, so her and the girls

What makes a great campsite? Location, solitude, view? I have spent the night at a few amazing campsites. The greatness of each site seems proportional to how difficult it is to reach. Point Sublime on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park is no different. Point Sublime at SunsetMy family and I headed out to the Grand Canyon on Memorial Day weekend for my oldest daughters birthday. We knew the weekend would bring in the crowds, and we have
