In this week's new video I review the Garmin InReach Mini that I have used extensively for 2 years. This review goes over the message sending capabilities in different areas, the battery life, checking the weather while you're out on trail, and overall how the device is holding up.
Hike of the month:
Watson Falls is a short 1 mile loop hike that takes you through a beautiful lush forest and up to the 3rd tallest waterfall in Oregon! This hike is very easy and perfect for the whole family and even though the waterfall isn't raging this time of year, the fall foliage colors against the dark green trees and moss makes you feel like you are in a fairytale wonderland!
