We believe good things come from people spending time outside. We strive to provide inspiration and supporting information on incredible adventures to make it easy for you to get outdoors and explore new places. We understand that life is busy, but we strongly encourage you to make time for outdoor recreation on a weekly, if not daily, basis. We've put together a list of 52 geological features and adventure themes to keep you inspired all year.

Kick off a year of adventure and join us in our #52AdventureChallenge 

Each Monday we'll post a blog related to the theme of the week that will include a bit of educational information and a plethora of adventures that would fulfill that week's theme. As the year goes on, the blogs will all be linked below. Don't worry if you didn't start the challenge in January, just pick up anywhere and make it a year of adventure.
