Happy New Year!

Here’s a fun list of outdoor links for your work avoidance enjoyment…

One of the best longreads of 2012 is this New York Times piece about a fatal avalanche called Snow Fall.

Speaking of deadly mountains…check out this panoramic 3.8 Billion pixel, interactive image of Mount Everest. Look closely to see if you can spot base camp or the Khumba Ice Fall. – http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2012/12/18/photo-mount-everest-in-two-billion-pixels/

Incredible map of where people live in the U.S. It’s much cooler than you think, and it’s placed over Google Maps.

I’d rather be with my family, but some would rather be ice climbing in Patagonia on Christmas Day – http://www.climbing.com/news/christmas-rush-on-cerro-torre/

Score one for environmentalists. Group raises money to buy out Wyoming ranches from Texas Big Oil.
