Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. It’s July and if you’re anything like us you can’t wait to hit the trail this weekend, so in honor of getting some facetime with nature, we’re dedicating this whole month to posts about hiking and backpacking! Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
Almonds, raisins, peanuts, chocolate chips, dried cherries, pumpkin seeds, dried chilis, Swedish fish… that might not sound like the tastiest combination when chilling at home (or maybe it does… we don’t judge), but is sure tastes like heaven after a brutal hike. That’s right, GORP, or trail mix, whatever you call it, is definitely one of the best-loved snacks when we hit the trail. We love the stuff all the time, but somehow it tastes better (doesn’t everything when you’re outside?) and we can devour handfuls in a single sitting when we’re out backpacking. In honor of this fabulous concoction, we’ve rounded up a few tasty recipes from our friends over at Backpacker Magazine…
