The ability to inspire, that’s the lone criteria for making this list. The voice of the blog can come from a freelance journalist or a team of sponsored adventurers. How did we pick them? Over the years, we've stacked our RSS feeds with more than two dozen company, magazine, and independent adventure blogs. Some inspire us. Some bore us. Some need to post a little more often. The good news? There's a host of new and regional blogs—Highline, Trail’s Edge, The Snaz—developing distinct voices. They didn't make the cut this year. That's because the old dogs have stepped up their games. Here's the best of the best.
