What an adventure! Flooded trails, itchweed, sandy beaches, tree camping, rope swings, lots of climbing, and great friends! It has been about 4 years since I first started tree camping and for the first time in my life I found friends (or they found me) to join me on a legitimate adventure into the tree canopy.
I tried my hardest to shorten the video for you guys with low attention spans (like me!) but there was just too much enjoyable footage!
Devon is a fellow portaledge designer / person-who-thinks-outside-of-the-box. When he stumbled upon my website he realized we only lived about 15 minutes away from each other (what are the odds!?) so we met over lunch and began planning our first adventure together! Kori is a good climbing friend of his and so the three of us went in search for the perfect night camping in the trees!

Oooh, and here is a little exert from Kori!
“I’ve enjoyed the outdoors my entire life, loved camping as a kid, always into adventures and I’ve been recently really into rock climbing however it is difficult to find places to outdoor climb. Tree camping and climbing trees in general is such a great way to extend a hobby I already really enjoy. The view was amazing and it was incredible to be rocking gently above the river and listening to it trickle by in the dead of the night. It was even more incredible to be above the ground when we heard the two coyotes howl in what seemed like the very near vicinity! The experience is not only one I never want to forget but one I hope to replicate again in the near future and was only heightened by the fun and lively companionship!”
…I hope you have been inspired to get outside and go climbing!
