Here’s a front row seat.

They’ve set up remote-control cam­eras to cap­ture one of North America’s great­est wildlife spec­ta­cles. Each year, up to 100 griz­zlies gather at Brooks Falls to feast on Sock­eye Salmon. Keep the feed open all day. It takes patience or luck to watch one nab a leap­ing salmon.

MSR Quick Solo: One Pot to Rule Them All

180 South Tents – A Clymb Exclusive

Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

7 Influential Naturalists You Need to Know

One of them was drink­ing bud­dies with nov­el­ist John Steinbeck.

Everyone’s heard of Muir, Dar­win, Cousteau, and Audubon. They’re rightly famous for rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing our under­stand­ing of the nat­ural world and bring­ing it into our daily lives. But here are some other nat­u­ral­ists who are also impor­tant, but their achieve­ments are much more obscure. Alexan­der Von Hum­boldt The Hum­boldt Pen­guin, the Pacific’s Hum­boldt Cur­rent, and a region of California’s north coast are named after him, but we still sell this 1800s-era Pruss­ian noble­man short. He sailed with a Span­ish expe­di­tion to south and
