The 2015 Life List

Every hiker's life list should include these 9 epic adventures.

Every life list begins with commitment. A decision to pursue the things that matter most in life. A devotion to the quest. When you're just starting out, you can take time to explore gently and find things to stir your passion. Once you tick off the easy stuff, you can take the training wheels off. Push yourself. Get just a little bit scared. And before it's too late, you should find time to splurge on those really big adventures. Remember: completing the ultimate life list should be fun, not easy.
