One of many breathtaking views in the Eagles Nest Wilderness, where we recently spent the weekend hiking and camping.
As the long light of summer lingers late into the evening, we can't help but soak up every moment outside of the workshop exploring the mountains right in our back yard (well, kind of). For this edition of WS in The Wild, we thought it would be fitting to gather a collection of our favorite wilderness 'grams taken by our friends and customers near and far.
We have particularly enjoyed following young British blogger @rebecca_kathryn as she travels across the U.S. with her partner @mags_travels. They took the time to stop by our workshop while passing through Denver, and now she's painting and photographing her way through the National Parks along with her other trusty companion, the Grey Roll-Up
The duo never seems to miss an opportunity to beautifully document their adventures on the road. 
We like that @mags_travels decided to rep our t-shirt for a surely epic bouldering session of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Lest we forget "all of the wood Wednesday" with Ricky Foster (a.k.a. @rickyboooby) and the timeless Log Tote. Ricky is a former WS team member and is currently wreaking havoc in Nashville with his partner in crime @jzmnfyl.

We'd like to leave you with the wise words of Thoreau:

 “We need the tonic of wildness… At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild… We can never have enough of nature.”

Now, get outside -- and share your adventures with us!
