The Best Apps for Exploring the Outdoors

Sometimes the best part of getting outside is turning off your smartphone and getting away from technology. But there are definitely times where your iPhone or Android can open up new activities, or put needed information at your fingertips.

I compiled two lists to make the search for the most useful apps easier for you.

10 Best iOS and Android Apps for Exploring the Outdoors and for some local flavor The Best iOS and Android Apps for Getting Outdoors in Vancouver (plus one bonus app).

Check out the lists and let me know if I missed any good ones.

Tales from the Outdoors with Lina Augaitis

Last week I was fortunate to be able to do an interview with the very impressive Lina Augaitis. Lina, a long time fan of the outdoors (triathlon, trail running, rock climbing, mountain biking, ski mountaineering), recently left her job as a teacher and is competing as a pro stand up paddler at races all over the world. With two early WINS so far, things have been going terrific for Lina. Read her story and the interview here: http://www.outdoorvancouver.ca/lina-augaitis-interview-sup/

Until next month!
