Friday Roundup: Just Another Day at the Office

July 20th, 2012

Nothing beats rising early, crunching along the trail, watching the sky get ligher with every step… and gazing at the stars atop a mountain is pretty fabulous as well. Jody Grigg posted this great shot on our Facebook wall earlier this week with the following caption:

Today’s office location took a little getting too… a wake up call of 1:20am on the trail by 1:40am, 5 miles of hiking with over 3,800ft+ of vertical gain, and after 2hr 45mins I had arrived. Nothing spectacular about the sunrise this morning not a cloud in the sky but watching the stars was pretty amazing from 13,281ft from the summit of Mount Lady Washington. Here’s a self portrait sporting my Osprey Pack Talon 44 about an hour after sunrise with Longs Peak 14,255ft as a backdrop.

Here’s to another day at the office. Happy Friday!

We love this shot from Zarautz, Pais Vasco, Spain that Facebook user Lo Wren posted on our wall this week. Sun, wide open space and wandering on your own two feet. It just doesn’t get much better than that. Happy Friday!

Friday Round Up: Mountainfilm Festival Kicks Off in Telluride, Colorado

May 25th, 2012

Mountainfilm Festival kicked off last night in Telluride, Colorado. Maybe it’s because of the incredible films, or the inspiring people we meet or the strong community we get wrapped up in every year at Mountainfilm Festival, but from the first moment we set foot in Telluride, we find ourselves buzzing from inspiration and looking forward to sharing our stories.

Whether you’re at Mountainfilm or revving up for a weekend at home with friends, cheers to sharing stories and inspiration today and every day.

Happy Friday!

We see a lot of great photos and videos throughout the week. So, we thought it was high time we started rounding up some of our faves each week and highlighting one on Friday to inspire weekend adventures. We call it the Osprey Round Up.

We see a lot of great photos throughout the week. So, we thought it was high time we started rounding up some of our faves each week and highlighting one on Friday to inspire weekend adventures. We call it the Osprey Round Up.

It’s Friday and the sun is shining in Colorado. Our friends up at 5Point Film Festival took a few hours off to raft on the Crystal River near Carbondale with local guides from Elk Mountain Expeditions. “We’re pumped to be stoked,” Sarah Kuck told us. We hope you all are too.

Happy Friday!

Friday Round Up: Spring Snow at Tailgate Alaska

April 13th, 2012

We see a lot of great photos throughout the week. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each week and highlighting one on Friday to inspire weekend adventures. We call it the Osprey Round Up.

Ken Lucas posted this great shot of him tearing it up with his Kode in some fresh, spring powder. He captured the photo at Tailgate Alaska, a winter sport festival at Thompson Pass in Valdez, Alaska.

For those of you who still have it, enjoy that spring snow. Happy Friday!

Friday Round Up: A Family Affair

April 6th, 2012

We see a lot of great photos throughout the week. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each week and highlighting one each Friday on our blog to inspire our weekend adventures. We call it the Osprey Round Up.

Do you remember your first backpacking trip? Whether you were 2 years old or 20, I’m betting it had a lasting impression—it definitely did for us. We believe that the more people, especially children, that we can get outside, the more people we will have protecting our remaining wild places. That’s why we love seeing families out on the trail. And if they happen to be wearing all Osprey Packs, well that’s an added bonus.

Loving this shot from Jason Boblitt on Facebook:

Here’s to hitting the trail with your family and friends this weekend. Happy Friday!
