We received so many great photos for our Girlfriend Getaway Sweepstakes that we had to share some of our favorites. Although there was only one grand prize winner, you’re all winners in our style book.
Thanks to all of our participants for submitting photos this year!
If snow and style are your thing, stay tuned … we’re headed to the Sundance Film Festival next month, where we hope to find plenty of both. You’ll find Sundance stories here in just a few weeks!
To tackle what is often cited as “the toughest hiking trail in the East,” Stephen Regenold (aka The Gear Junkie) relies on his fast and light Timberland LiteTrace boots. Can he and his crew successfully make their way up 6 major peaks, 14,000 feet of elevation and 25 miles of Catskill Mountain’s Devils Path? See for yourself:
You’ll find more Gear Junkie / LiteTrace adventures on the Outdoor tab of our Facebook page and on the Gear Junkie website. To shop for your own pair of hard hike-worthy LiteTrace boots, visit our website.
Whether you overdid it with the mashed potatoes yesterday or just can’t seem to find your holiday cheer, there’s no better solution than a walk in the woods. Before you head out on the trail, take note of these tips from Outside TV and AMC Guide, Nate Shedd:
Now that you’re sufficiently inspired to get outdoors, make sure you’ve got the gear you need. You can shop our full collection of hikers here.
It’s that time of year again, when those of us on Timberland’s US team take pause and share a few days of family, food and (hopefully) fun beyond the office walls. Below, some of the Bootmakers bloggers share what they’re thankful for on this Thanksgiving Eve:
I am thankful for cold weather, warm sweaters and snuggly scarves! I am also thankful for great sledding hills, hot cocoa with marshmallows and my wonderful family who shares in all the fun! – Laura
I’m thankful for the four day weekend that allows me the opportunity to spend quality time outdoors with family and friends. – Margaret
I am thankful to be growing my family. My husband and I are expecting our first child and we couldn’t be more thrilled. To me the holidays have always been about spending time with those I care about most and we are excited to welcome the newest member of the family next year. – Adriana
Holidays with friends and family, the expectation of snow, and the look in my daughter’s eyes when we scream 4-day weekend! – Brian
I’m thankful for a holiday that allows us to take a break from our chaotic, busy routines for a day to reflect on and appreciate not what we want, but what we do have … and I’m REALLY thankful that it’s time to get my skis tuned! – Amanda
I’m grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate how commerce & justice go hand in hand. Timberland is proof that a company can be both profitable and socially and environmentally responsible. It’s not every day that a business realizes, and positively leverages, its resources to create change that can benefit people, profits, and the planet. I feel proud to work here every day. – Beth
