About The Adventure Book

Soles In The Backcountry started in hopes of making a positive impact in our community. We are always encouraging more people to  get out and see the beauty Alaska has to offer as well as take advantage of the benefits of being outside and staying active.  This challenge promotes and challenges individuals, friends and family to get outdoors and participate in healthy leisure activities. There are three challenges included in SITBC Adventure Book (Target Adventures, Hiking Series and The 6 Peak Challenge) . You can choose to do any or all of them. Each challenge varies in degree of difficulty so choose the one(s) that suit(s) you best!
