I got to thinking about hiking and camping when this study about resetting your body clock was in the news.
We’re pretty tied to our phones, computer screens, and TVs these days. Hiking is a great way to take a real break from the constant presence of artificial light and eye strain.
Here’s a look at four hiking blogs to inspire your next adventure.
Aussie hiker Cam “Swami” Honan was named “the most traveled hiker on earth” by Backpacker Magazine. As of 2016, he’s hiked more than 57,000 miles (91,733 km) in some 56 countries and six continents.

Michael Lanza is a hiker, backpacker, and climber, as well as a writer and outdoor photographer. He’s hiked most of the major national parks throughout the United States, and internationally.

A voice for American hikers, American Hiking Society promotes and protects foot trails that connect people with nature. They are committed to the preservation of hiking trails, as well as providing funding to plan and build trails.
I recommend reading Endless Opportunities to Get Outside on the First Weekend of June, Summer of Service, and 10 Best Hikes in Ohio.
