Share Your Hang Ups: Hammock Creativity In Alberta

Matt C. of Alberta, Canada writes:
“To say that I love my Trek Light hammock would be an understatement.  It has revolutionized how I camp.  I recently moved from northern Ontario to Alberta and I was distraught to find that there are not many trees here and fewer of them are large enough to support me in a hammock.  I have not been here very long and I have already camped with my hammock in both Banff and Jasper (which were AWESOME!) ,  but I like to "hang" more often than every few weeks.  Here are a few pics of me improvising near where I work.
I love your gear, this hammock got me back into backpacking!”

Thanks for sharing your great story and photos with us Matt - that’s definitely one of the most unique hammock spots we’ve seen yet!

Nothing makes us happier than to hear that a Trek Light Hammock has revolutionized the way someone camps and actually sparked a passion for backpacking.   True hammock heroes know that you don’t need two trees to enjoy your hammock, you just need a will to relax and some good old hammock creativity.
