The Beauty of Eating Outdoors

with 178 comments

Mediocre wine is excellent if you have a view, coffee is exponentially more delicious when brewed after a night in a tent, and trail mix can compete with the fanciest hors d’oeuvre when you’re in the middle of a hike. It’s simple: food always tastes better outdoors.

I was thinking of this in the process of drinking a mug of wine, overlooking a horizon of red rock formations last week. Dirtbags, sunsets and merlot do go hand in hand after all.

A decade ago, I spent an entire month in the backcountry. I refused to go to sleep before seeing a shooting star.

One week ago, this is where I spent the night. Canyonlands National Park is one of the most striking places on earth, with shocking reds and oranges paired with piercing blue skies. A 60-foot canyon rappel, an epic day of scrambling and bushwacking and gorgeous scenery, all while being 100% unplugged, are all ingredients to an excellent trip. Go get outside!

An unplanned New Year’s resolution (unplanned because it happened organically in the last few weeks) has been to learn how to ski. And what better place for your first turns than Utah? A beautiful day at Snow Basin – after a couple hours of low visibility and icy snow straight in the face – with a gorgeous drive into Salt Lake was an excellent introduction to my first time skiing in Utah. And winter sunsets are always a wonderful thing.
