Holiday Shopping Guide

Do you have some last minute shopping? Here are my recommendations for your last minute shopping.  

Crossley came out with an outstanding new guide this year that lives up to his previous ground-breaking works.  I want one for every region and country of the world.  Check out the Britain & Ireland Guide: http://press.princeton.edu/titles/10102.html

If you're looking for boots for winter or a nice trail boot, look no further than Merrell.  I've been wearing there boots for 10 years now and they never disappoint: http://www.merrell.com/US/en

I bought my first pair of Keens this year and I must say, I am in love.  I was a die-hard Chaco fan for almost a decade but I now my Keens are the go-to trail shoe especially in Colorado where I often cross streams, hike mountains, and dip my feet in the ice cold alpine lakes.  You gotta get a pair and try'em out: http://www.keenfootwear.com/us/en/

After a trip to Panama and Costa Rica, I must say that a nice waterproof bag will give you a safety net with those optics and they fold up to the size of a wallet to store in a pocket or bag for safe keeping until you need them.  I went out each day with my DSLR without any hesitation with my waterproof bag.  I like the Sealine waterproof bags personally:http://www.cascadedesigns.com/sealline

Lowepro Passport Sling will hold your DSLR, your optics, guides, and everything else for a day in the field. http://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Passport-Sling-Camera-Bag/dp/B0039NLS4C/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387308138&sr=8-1&keywords=lowepro+sling+camera+bag

You know you need to keep all those outdoor adventures organized.  Why not do it in a calendar that gives back to a good cause like the Larimer Humane Society's 12 of 12,000 Calendar Project.  Plus, Ms. December is the best bulldog in the world!  http://www.larimerhumane.org/events/12-of-12000
