The Backcountry Log is a vintage field guide inspired journal to keep record of your hikes, your bikes, and your camping. There are places to record 25 adventures. The log has extra grid, as well as blank pages, to draw, write, and illustrate your time outdoors. You’ll find in the back pages Identification illustrations for wildflowers, knots, birds, animals, leaves. And also info on trail blazes, what plants to avoid, what’s the difference between a grizzly bear and black bear, plus more. And a step by step guide to how to hang a “bear bag” in the backcountry.
The cover is a soft bound gray fabric with linocut of trees foil printed in matte forest green. The interior pages are tree-free. The inside cover is illustrated with topo maps of Yellowstone National Park and Yosemite National Park. And rulers are inside to measure tracks and other things you find, inches and centimeters. Quotes by Rachel Carson, Edward Abbey, John Muir, and William Wordsworth.
It measures 6.375”x4.375”x.75” to fit perfectly in a daypack. And each has a bright orange headband at the spine. Published by Clarkson Potter.
