The Upper Missisquoi and Trout Rivers are Vermont’s first rivers to be added to the prestigious National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. On June 6, 2015, community members and partner groups will celebrate this recent designation with a dedication ceremony at The Abbey in Enosburg followed by a 6-mile group paddle along the Missisquoi River from Richford to East Berkshire. These events are free and the public is welcome to attend. For five years, a community-led process identified characteristics of the Upper Missisquoi and Trout Rivers that made it eligible for protected status. In 2009, the Vermont Wild & Scenic Study Committee formed to work through the qualifications for designation which included a detailed study and collaboration between the towns that share the watershed. In December 2014, congress officially recognized the two rivers as ‘Wild & Scenic’. The ceremony will take place 11:00am–2:00 pm with speakers, live music and free food. More than 25 exhibitors will be on hand to shar......

We’re drifting in our sea kayaks toward the imposing face of the glacier, when a sharp crack splits the silence. The seven of us watch, speechless, as a block of ice bigger than a three-bedroom house slides off the glacier and vanishes beneath the inky black water. A large swell rolls toward us. Alaska promised drama. Grandeur. Beauty. Tranquility. Thrills. This kayaking trip to the inlets and glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park was delivering all of those things, sometimes a little too close for comfort. In all the years that I’d explored wilderness by foot, skis and boat, Alaska—the “last frontier” as state license plates proudly proclaim—had eluded me. But suddenly this bucket-list trip felt urgent. The reason is simple: the Alaska we know today will not be the same in 50 years. Alaska is on the front line of climate change, with the titanic forces of sky, water, and earth colliding in dramatic fashion. Everything about Alaska is larger than life. The 49th state is twice the size of Texas ......

Much of the relief aid that has managed to reach Nepal\'s remote villages affected by the quakes has come from local, grassroots efforts; oftentimes fueled by nothing more than a Facebook page and a PayPal account. Nepal’s outdoor industry, including its paddling community, has been on the front lines of this guerrilla relief effort, sending supplies out with their guides in rafts, jeeps, and even dirt bikes to access areas no one else can get to The post Nepal Outfitters Become First Responders After Earthquakes appeared first on Canoe & Kayak Magazine....

Big Agnes Double Z 22.6oz. 72x20x4. 15f R4.5 ($110, bigagnes.com) When matched with a Big Agnes sleeping bag we found the Double Z to have fantastic sleepability. At one pound, six ounces it was the second heaviest pad in the test, but considering the four inches of comfort as well as the warmth of its insulation, it’s surprisingly light. This is the only pad tested that will handle well below freezing temperatures. It’s also one of the largest it packed form, but still small enough to fit into any kayak. It has vertical baffles resulting in a slight bouncy pool toy feel, but not as dramatic as the Exped Synmat 7 UL. Because of the considerable taper towards the feet it doesn’t pair well with bags like the Nemo Nocturne. The Double Z has our favorite valve system, a main free flowing valve for inflation/deflation and a second one way valve inside for topping off. Despite specifications saying only 72″ the Double Z is actually 77″ long, making it the best for tall people. Caveat: ......

BY JIM BAIRD Once across Attikamagen Lake, we began traveling up a series of small connecting creeks, sometimes portaging along winter road blazes. When the creeks started traveling with us, we knew we’d crossed the height of land into Labrador, and were in the headwater lakes of the Du Pas, an ancillary tributary of the George River. The country is low lying and boggy. Good camp sites are at a minimum. One advantage: the soft, wet ground has few protruding rocks, allowing us to drag on a couple portages. For this, we had to rig makeshift harnesses for ourselves. We had to rig makeshift harnesses, and the bowline was the perfect knot. Knowing a few good knots can be a big help when you’re in the bush, and for canoeists, the bowline is the perfect knot to use in attaching your painter and stern lines, especially when dragging. You’ll be hard pressed to un-tie a granny knot after a few hundred meters of hard pulling have tightened it. Luckily, Will’s an expert with the Bowline. Follow these steps and yo......
