Catch Smith Rock State Park Naturalist David Vick One Last Time This Saturday

That's right. Interpretative Naturalist David Vick won't be around Smith Rock much longer doing the Geology and Raptor talks on weekends some of you may have enjoyed, sharing with visitors pieces of his vast personal databank of knowledge of plants, animals, and geology. His last "Raptor Rap," where you can see the park's bald eagles through a powerful spotting scope and learn about all of the other raptor species that call the park home is this Saturday, June 30, David's official retirement date.

Only Glass Separates You From Smith Rock's (and more) Climbing Past

A picture might be worth a thousand words, but an artifact speaks volumes. A new exhibit at the High Desert Museum entitled "Ascent:  Climbing Explored" has so many artifacts from renowned area and regional climbers it's a veritable candy store for climbers, and non-climbers alike. You just can't take any of the candy home with you.

Local company Hydroflask, who launched the first all-insulated bottle line-up into the market, wanted to do more for its customers than talk features. They wanted to share experiences in the form of video in the "Live" section of their website with "Stories that inspire us, to inspire you."
