 Article Title :: More Yellowstone Wolves Leak into Idaho
Ed Bangs is coordinator for wolf recovery for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. This is what he said about current wolf populations around and in Yellowstone National Park: I’m eating crow. I never though we’d get that high.I don’t know why Ed Bangs is surprised at the current wolf populations. The ranchers told him that before they turned the first mating pair loose in Yellowstone Park.I’m proud to say that we have more wolves in Idaho than they do in Montana and Wyoming. Eat your heart out Wyoming. Eat your heart out Montana.According to the article in our local rag, we have 512 wolves in Idaho. (That is the size of the RAM you need in your  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Park: Hike With Your Dog Along The Potomac
George Washington was one of the early American speculators who dreamed of the riches an inland American waterway could bring that would float goods from the West to Washington down the Potomac River. A canal that could connect the Potomac River to the Ohio River in Pittsburgh would provide a continuous water link from New Orleans to the Chesapeake Bay.The canal, dubbed the “Great National Project” by President John Quincy Adams, was finally started on July 4, 1828. It would take 22 years to complete - actually construction just stopped since the canal route never made it out of Maryland with only 184.5 of the planned 460 miles dug - and was obsolete before i  (read full article)

 Article Title :: A Backpack With Wheels?
I wouldn't have thought a backpack with wheels would actually work for backpacking, but when I saw the web site for the "Wheelpacker"(TM), I was impressed. You wear a frame that attaches you to a wheeled pack. It can even go over logs and rocks. It started me thinking about what other backpacking innovations are just waiting to be marketed. Here are a few of the things I came up with. Steal these ideas, please.Inflatable Frame BackpackWith frame-less backpacks we often put folded sleeping pads in the pack for cushioning against our backs and some support for the load. Why not just have the part of the pack that rests against the user's back inflate. With the same tech  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Hiking Tips
Here are a few tips that are essential to making a hiking trip successful and rewarding. It is important to remember that hiking is usually done away from civilization, so assistance is not at your disposal. This makes safety and planning an essential part of your hiking trip that should not be overlooked.Mapping out your trip is the first and most important part of planning. This will be the foundation to build your itinerary and your supply list, especially if you are taking a long multi-day hike. It is good to stick to well traveled routes like the Appalachian Trail because they are easy to follow and there are many campsites along the way. When you choose a location to hik  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' Kings Mountain National Military Park: Hike With Your Dog Though The American Revolution
Revolutionary War buffs will certainly want to make the effort to take your dog to Kings Mountain, site of some of the most vicious American vs. American fighting of the war. Here some 600 “backcountry” men who had marched over 200 miles attacked Carolinians loyal to the crown. The Loyalists were under the command of “Bloody” Patrick Ferguson, the only British soldier in the battle.Ferguson chose to defend his position on traditional high ground, a rocky outcropping surrounded by a hardwood forest. The mountain men, however, worked their way up the slopes, fighting from tree to tree on their way to the summit. The high ground in this case worked again  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' The Cumberland Gap National Historic Park: Hike With Your Dog On America's Most Famous Notch
Wandering animals, buffalo and deer, were the first to discover this natural break in the daunting Appalachian Mountains. These migratory mammals blazed the trail that American Indian tribes would later follow. American settlers seemed destined to be bottled up on the East Coast until April 1750 when Dr. Thomas Walker discovered the gap through the mountains.Later, Daniel Boone blazed the Wilderness Road through the Gap in 1775. Over the next 20 years, although no wagons rolled through the pass, more than 200,000 people made the journey west into the wilderness of Kentucky and beyond. The Cumberland Gap was honored as a national Historic Park in 1940 and a new tunne  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' Guilford Courthouse National Military Park: Hike With Your Dog Where The Revolution Turned
With the Revolutionary War stalemated in the North in 1778, the British strategy to win the war shifted to the South. Georgia and South Carolina were completely under British control by 1780. Nathanael Greene, an ironmaster by trade, self-taught in the art of war and George Washington’s hand-picked commander of the Southern Department, was determined to keep North Carolina out of British hands.From his base in Virginia Greene harassed the British as their attack spread northward. Pursued by a frenetic Lord Cornwallis, Greene selected sloping ground near Guilford Courthouse to make his stand. He aligned his superior force of 4,000 men - of which scarcely one in five had e  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' Toadstool Geologic Park: Hike With Your Dog In Nebraska's Badlands
America’s badlands received their ominous name when early settlers found it impossible to safely roll a wagon through the cracked lunar landscape in the Upper Midwest. Our most famous badlands are preserved in national parks in the Dakotas - and off limits to canine hikers.To give your dog a chance to explore these unique lands of sculpted rock, head south from the Dakotas to the lesser-known badlands of the Nebraska panhandle. Here in the Gala National Grasslands you will find dog-freindly Toadstool Geologic Park where the relentless tag-team of water and wind have carved fanciful rock formations into the stark hills.The “toadstools” form when underlying s  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' White Sands National Monument: Hike With Your Dog - World's Biggest Gypsum Sand Dunes
Dogs have long been welcome on the mystical white sands of southern New Mexico. When America’s space age began at White Sands Missile Range with the firing of a Tiny Tim test booster on September 26, 1945, it was important to retrieve small missile parts to analyze success or failure. These searches routinely wasted countless man-hours as ground recovery crews scoured vast expanses of desert for often-buried missile fragments.That ended in 1961 with the introduction of the Missile Dogs: Dingo, a Weimaraner, and Count, a German Shorthair. For up to a year before firing, important components of a missile were sprayed with squalene, a shark-liver oil that the dogs could smel  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Doggin' Gettysburg National Military Park: Hike With Your Dog On America's Most Famous Battlefield
Experienced canine hikers are all too aware of the prohibitions against dogs on national park trails but not so many know about the hidden gems the national park service reserves for dog owners: historical parks and battlefields. Dogs are typically allowed anywhere outside buildings in these places and hikers will often find the same mountain views, verdant forests and refreshing streams familiar in national parks. All with the added bonus of engaging in our shared heritage along these tail-friendly trails.Gettysburg National Military Park, where Civil War Union forces halted a Confederate invasion commanded by Robert E. Lee, in south-central Pennsylvania is America’s most-vi  (read full article)
