Experiencing the outdoors…through technology?

Experiencing the outdoors…through technology? | Camping UK | Scoop.it

The integration of technology into our outdoor experience has been increasing steadily over the past few years. Whether it’s the GPS unit you carry to track your hikes, QR codes on trail markers, or even a hiker’s loud cell phone conversation on a Saturday morning, it’s hard to deny the impact it has had on our experiences in nature. A recent article, “Digitizing the Outdoors: Can Gaming be the Gateway to Nature?,” on the National Wildlife Federation’s blog got me thinking about all this.

Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp

Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp | Camping UK | Scoop.it
Located in Patagonia in Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp’s unique dome structures strive to keep the nomadic spirit of the area’s ancient inhabitants alive. The Kawesqar people built their huts from found materials, and today EcoCamp’s geodesic domes have a similar structure; however, these luxurious huts come with panoramic windows, thick insulation and low-emission wood stoves. The resort gets all its energy from natural and renewable resources, and it has partnered with CarbonFree to offset all its carbon emissions.

 

This is from one of my all time favorite sites - Mother Nature Network - Their mission to “Improve Your World.” …wow that locale and the rustic contemporary inspiring domes surrounded by majestic...

The Market Stick: Glen Finglas... The Mell Circuit

The Market Stick: Glen Finglas... The Mell Circuit | Camping UK | Scoop.it

I had forgotten how much I love the smell of Bracken, to some that may seem like an odd thing, but if like me you spent a lot of time as a kid playing along river banks covered in Bracken and Gorse and walking on hills covered in the plant, then you will understand. Needless to say, there was a lot of Bracken growing at the sides of the path leading up and away from the car park at the start of the Glen Finglas walks. I say walks as there are a few way-marked paths that snake up and around the wooded hill side that looks down over the road to Brig O Turk.
