We go outside to seek out solitude and the great thing about nature, but additionally to be nearer to our group and ourselves. That was so obvious this month, as a whole lot of REI staff, family and friends members took to the streets across the nation to have a good time their group.
June is LGBT Pleasure Month, and we’re proud to say that we represented #OutsideWithPride at parades in Washington D.C., Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle. Listed here are a few of the highlights.
