Mountain Hardwear’s ‘Days You Remember’ series

It is a beautiful — if not super sunny — spring day here in Washington, D.C., and I am stuck inside working on my real job.

Luckily I have some time between tasks to spend some time outside virtually.

Outdoor manufacturer Mountain Hardwear has started posting a new series of videos centered around the “Days You Remember.”

The videos consist of cut together scenes and moments, with each focusing on a topic (Adventure, Horizons, etc.).


Video: Arches and Canyonlands national parks timelapse

Coming home from a quick vacation in the South to visit family, we are living again with snow.

About 6 inches fell overnight. We are done. Done with winter. Done with snow.

Ready for spring, to plant the garden and to spend time outside — in warm weather.

Until then, this video from Roadtrippers will have to do. Enjoy.

Video: A week in the desert

Follow along as the gang from Mammoth Media go on a week-long trip through the deserts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.

I’ve been to the Grand Canyon once, and Wife of Mine and I visited Arches, Zion, Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands just after we got hitched. It is a beautiful part of the country and this video captures it well — and it looks like they had a ton of fun, too.

The North Face hears the mountains calling

The North Face has kick-started a new campaign titled “The Mountains are Calling.”

Here at The Mountains Are Calling blog, we say — excellent!

Simple words serve as both the title and inspiration behind the expeditions, the images and moments that bring our passion for exploration to life. We are excited to share with you this call to return to the mountains that was inspired by everyone who has had a hand in shaping The North Face brand over the last 45 years. Our passion for exploration and the outdoors fueled our thinking and thankfully we’ve never veered away from this inspiration. Never Stop Exploring is as prevalent today as it was when we built our first tent.

Over the next month or so, we’ll be taking a closer look at our “Mountains Our Calling” anthem as well as sharing behind the scenes accounts, insights and perspectives from some of the people that have made all of this possible.

We’ll keep an eye on TNF’s blog and videos as they continue the campaign.
