Alpine Drives and Bluebird Skies

Bookmark and Share

When you go into the woods and disconnect from the digital world it can be refreshing for your mind.  You no longer hear the rings and pings of your phone, or the bump and slump of the computer.  However, there is always a moment where you get a song stuck in your head and the best way to get it out is to sing it loud and proud as you trek along.  I find that a great way to get ready for my trips is to listen to some of my favorite, nostalgic songs.  They help hype me up for the adventure while also let me reflect back on times from my past.  Beyond that they help give me some great songs to connect with others as they inevitably get stuck, then sung with a chorus of other fellow adventurers.  Here is a short excerpt of songs from one of my favorite adventure playlists; one I affectionately call “Alpine Drives and Bluebird Skies.”
