Timed to coincide with the centennial of the National Park Service, this exhaustive 400-page hiking guide covers our National Parks from Acadia to Zion. In some cases, such as the Grand Canyon, author Ted Alvarez makes an effort to include less-trod trails, such as Powell’s Plateau, a pine-forested beauty above the Colorado River.
Stojo Collapsible Cup
Yeah, disposable coffee cups: Our environmental side tsk-tsks their use, but our lazy/practical side still gladly accepts them. A new 12-ounce collapsible cup called Stojo can assuage our guilt. This BPA-free plastic cup scrunches to fit in your palm and can be easily stored in your carry-on bag, backpack, even your back pocket.
