Test driving the Mt. Light McKenzie

What calls on us to get out, get away, get beyond our day to day? What is it we are hoping to discover there, in the way far out? We don’t know. And that’s why we keep going, why we keep packing more work into the week so we can skip town on Friday and find a way into the woods or the desert or to the ocean. Because we know that whatever it is that’s out there, it’s part of what fills us up and keeps us going.

We’ve never been shy about our love of the Pacific Northwest landscape. To honor that love, and make sure we do it justice in our ongoing explorations, we’ve partnered again with Danner to design a special make up of the Mountain Light silhouette -- one that’s suited to the rugged topography of the place we call home. To test drive this new boot, we took some cameras and some packs to five distinct, east-of-the-Cascades locations: Fort Rock, Steens Mountain, South Sister, Mt. Jefferson and the Painted Hills. We hope you like the results.

Hand crafted in the USA to Danner’s exacting standards, this latest offering in our ongoing relationship with a company we admire is built to handle whatever you throw at it.
