Kirk Irwin

We're inching closer to the season, Wilderness.

Hello, Wilderness!

I know all of us here at HW have been saying that the season is getting closer and closer for a while now, but that fact is getting more valid by the day.

I managed to finally find a little bit of Wild news this time around, so sit back, relax, and enjoy perusing today's links!

Let's walk.
