Prague, Paris, London, Vienna, Amsterdam, Berlin
Basecamper Micah Shanks reflects on his first experience in Europe while spending the semester abroad studying in Prague. 10 countries and 14 cities later, he is ready to get back.
Mt. Hood, Salmon River Trail, Cannon Beach, and Willamette National Forest
There’s something special in Oregon, something nearly indescribable with words. Green trees wander the horizon, balanced by the skyscraping peaks of Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson, while the cold ocean water simultaneously invites adventure and coziness. Basecamper Oliver Ambros spent four months trekking throughout the state, meeting up with friends and strangers along the way for some necessary outdoor time.
Moab, Utah & the Northern Mountains of Colorado
The fall season is slowly coming to a close, so in celebration of the seasonal change I took full advantage of the final rainy days in Moab as well as the last bit of dry sun in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Of course, you can’t deny Old-Man Winter when he undoubtedly makes his presence known in Colorado, so of course the early season powder of Berthoud Pass had to be thoroughly enjoyed as well. Winter is moving in quickly, and I suspect she will be consistent, strong, and respected when she finally arrives in all her glory, like an old friend who has finally come home.
SAhale Glacier, Olympic national park, mt. erie, and the valleys
High mountains, dense forests, and endless trails: Welcome to the beauty and stoke of Washington. Basecamper Oliver Ambros spent four months where passion for the outdoors relies on action and discovery, not talk and show. While these photos do their best to capture the region’s aesthetic, they do no justice to the emotions, ambiences, or personalities involved in the making of each moment.

Bender’s Summer roll
In June, my Mom dug up an old film camera that hadn’t seen attention in years. I popped open the back cover as she told me it was the first camera she and my dad had purchased together. It took a new roll of film no problem, and so began a small summer endeavor into shooting with film across surf, mountains, and those most special to me.
Point Reyes, California
Near the heart of The Bay Area, Basecamper Ryan Smith discovered a quiet land overlooking some of Earth's most natural spectacles. Point Reyes' beauty reveals itself to its beholders on both the sunniest and foggiest of days, giving its explorers two distinct, inspirational experiences.
Trails, San Onofre, California
The Trails called and delivered, with steady August peaks breaking long enough to sit and crack a brew while gazing at the withered cliffs standing in front of you. Sun beamed down, the ocean spoke softly, and us visitors listened. What a great session at Trails, San Onofre, CA.
Just beyond San Louis Obispo lies the sleepy little town of Cayucos. With fast rights on the south side of the pier and a dedicated, yet small crowd of locals, we found ourselves amongst what felt like vintage surfing at its best. After long days on the beach, we came home to our campsite with food and hammocks aplenty.
Tumbledown Mountain, Maine
We came for a hike, and hike we did, selecting Loop Trail, the hardest, steepest, yet most beautiful of the paths available at our finger tips. A direct ascent of the mountain from the front end of the base guided us up waterfalls, around massive tree roots, along the edges of cliffs...
Kings Canyon NP, California
We traded in our boards for backpacks to explore the depths of California's forgotten lands. The South Fork Kings River snaked through the valley, towered over by golden cliffs on either side, with the arms of Montane Forests stretching out in front of us, providing shadowed canopies from the sun.
