Givin' a Shout Out for A Couple of Good Sites

Every once in a while I check my Blogger "stats." It's interesting to see what site people were on that hooked them up with my blog. It's fascinating. For example I just discovered a bushcraft site in Portugal that had a link to my blog. Pretty cool!

I wanted to quickly highlight a couple of such sites that I think would be useful/interesting to my readership:
High Sierra Topix. If you're interested in backpacking, fishing, climbing, etc. in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains of California (and who isn't?), then this is a great resource. I've linked to their home page, but be sure to click through to the forums where you can get real time information about conditions on the ground.

Hiking In Finland. Don't be put off by the title! This site is about a whole lot more than just hiking in Finland (not that hiking in Finland is such a bad thing). This is a site with its ear to the ground and its finger on the pulse of what's going on in the outdoors world. It's really an eclectic site and a great read. (and don't worry, it's in English) :)

That's not to say that there aren't other worthy sites out there! From time to time I may highlight the occasional site that I think is worthy of such note.
