Science and Philosophy

Thinking about thinking is important. How do our minds interface with the world? What can we do to avoid making errors? Does morality exist?   


Without spirit, nothing matters. But if you have free will, it makes all the difference in the world.

Symbology Key:

  • Green: Day hikes, but can be done overnight.
  • Yellow: Typically 2-3 night hikes.
  • Red:  Longer hikes, typically 4+ nights.

  • Blue: Camping combined with something else, typically kayaking.

Note: Significant zooming is required to see all activities. Some trailheads have 5+ hikes, which do not show at default zoom levels.
