If you find yourself on Stone Mountain in Atlanta, GA, don’t say that you’re hiking. It’s called “doing the mountain,” and that slight nuance means everything to Kenya and Michelle Jackson-Saulters, founders of the Outdoor Journal Tour and the We Hike to Heal movement.
It is one of the most exhilarating sports on earth, a physically demanding rollercoaster ride that can be wonderfully exhausting but unquestionably thrilling.

We celebrate athletes like Michael Phelps for their biological gifts that allow them to be the strongest, the fastest, the best at what they do.

We've got a big announcement, and we wanted you to hear it from us first. We appreciate all of your support over the past few years, and we look forward to what the future holds.
