Celebrating 100 years at very own backyard: Olympic National Park
This year marks the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service. What better way to celebrate 100 years than at our very own backyard: Olympic National Park.
To celebrate, Zach and I teamed up with cinematographers Max Lowe and Tyler Wilkinson-Ray to spend a week road tripping up and down the Pacific Northwest coastline in a few Chevy trucks to explore Columbia’s backyard: Olympic National Park.
It was an opportunity to see the rugged places that have inspired Columbia to make tough gear since their founding in 1938 and be inspired by them ourselves as adventurers and outdoors people.
And we took full advantage of that inspiration: The week was jam-packed with sea kayaking, hiking, snowshoeing, beach bonfires, river restoration, volunteer work, and more scenic vistas than I can describe.
Luckily, Director of Toughness Zach Doleac captured it all on camera. Enjoy, and cheers to 100 more years of National Park adventures for all!
