At Pathloom, we're extremely proud of the exclusive content we bring to our community each and every week. We've written comprehensive guides, told our stories from the trails, given some tips & tricks based on our outdoors experience - all with the goal of keeping you, our readers, informed and entertained - and doing our part to make the Great Outdoors more accessible for everyone!


While we're certainly proud of our written content here, (and our videos on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok!), we'd like to introduce a new monthly series highlighting the INCREDIBLE work our photographers put in to give you amazing views of some of the most beautiful areas of the country. To that effect, we present our first edition of Photography Spotlight - the best photos from the past month of Pathloom blogs!

"Across America, there were a total of 237 million visitors to National Parks during 2020. This was a decrease of 28% from the previous year, likely due to pandemic-related closures and restrictions by local governments in the areas surrounding our parks."

"True Van Life isn't something you can show on social media, it is sweaty and freezing; terrifying and exciting; inspiring and devastating. It will show you the inner workings of your psyche as you face challenge after challenge."

"Too much empty floor space inside your tent will make it hard to warm up the interior space. Bring your backpack and other gear inside (avoid sharp items that could rip your tent, like crampons and axes), and place everything around you on the floor of your tent to act as insulation against the cold ground."

"Keep in mind that the ground steals heat from your body, even more so in the winter months, so you will need to invest in a high quality sleeping pad. Your best bet is to use two pads to keep you warm on snowy ground - a foam pad next to the ground, and an inflatable pad on top to maximize your insulation from the cold below."

"The best way to see the Park is by kayaking or canoeing the famous Cedar Creek. In the heart of the flood plain water levels can vary by up to 10 feet, making it very important to check the water level before setting out for a creek-bound adventure."
