Coping with COVID-19

Listen to Bob and psychologist NORA CIELO discuss mental health effects of COVID-19 restrictions on outdoor activity! Good tips for recognizing if you are feeling blue and ideas for alternate joy.

Life Lived Outdoors

Just stumbled across this great hiking podcast. While I live in Idaho, I learn so much practical information from hiking safety, using trail gear and apps, trail land management and even how to save money on a rental car. (Saved $300 bucks on a rental in Anchorage!) Appreciate all the effort that goes into making a podcast relevant and informative.
