The Hiking, Climbing, and Camping Issue

 A Letter From The Editor

I’ve been intimidated by the idea of rock climbing since the 1990’s when I first saw an image of a rock climber, balanced on a dangerous precipice. I thought rock climbing was out of reach for regular people like me—it seemed to require vast amounts of expert knowledge and equipment. So I was pleased to read articles from our contributors that cover climbing topics for beginners, including what to wear and how to tie ropes. This issue of Happy Living explores climbing, hiking, and camping as traditional activities to be enjoyed together, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned outdoorsman. There are tips for every stage of your trip, from packing to setting-up camp to purifying your drinking water.
