Backcountry hikers don’t have to settle for dehydrated rations and instant coffee with the likes of the new “Wilderness Ranger Cookbook”. Employees from the Bureau of Land Managements, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service and Fish and Wildlife Service contributed recipes and photographs to the cookbook published by the Society for Wilderness Stewardship in observance of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Imagine how good a Red Lentil Curry and Creamed Coconut would taste on the trail…
The world’s highest commercial abseil awaits you in Tasmania!
Adventure seekers will relish the opportunity to abseil 140m (460ft) down the side of Gordon Dam. The dam stands on the edge of the state’s South West wilderness and is higher than the infamous Sydney Harbour Bridge.
If the 140m drop seems daunting, abseilers can test the water with a 30m or 50m descent beforehand. As the dam is a concave abseilers spend much of the time dangling in the air rather than touching the wall.
