Weekend Sherpa Podcast: Take it Outside.

NEW EPISODE: Great National Parks and Trying to Save One from Politics: In celebration of National Park Week, Weekend Sherpa co-founders Brad Day and Holly Kulak discuss eight great national park adventures they shared via this week's email newsletter in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Then they have a conversation with podcast guest Daniel Dietrich, the filmmaker behind "Tule Elk: The Killing of a Native Species." It's a discussion about a controversial decision to kill Tule Elk in Point Reyes National Seashore to make more room for cattle ranchers to let their cows graze more land. This is a highly charged topic, with politics and money shrouding the controversy. Find out ways to help save the Tule Elk living in the park.

    San Francisco's Middle Earth

    No need to travel to New Zealand to visit Middle Earth. San Francisco’s Mount Sutro Open Space is practically Hobbiton—a hidden “shire” in the middle of the city. Okay, maybe not quite as magical, but still an incredible place to take a hike in city limits.
