Earlier this month Cold Splinters shared Indian Summer, a transitional/seasonal mix I put together for their ongoing Trail Mix series. As I’ve noted here in the past, if you like to get outside, Cold Splinters, helmed by Jeff Thrope, is both an essential and inspiring read. Thrope’s also one of the few people who truly […]
