The Starting Points for Adventure series gives your outdoor-imagination a kick in the butt, and gets you on the fast-track to adventures. Approximately every week we provide a few pictures and clues of a great location a bit off the beaten path. We challenge you to read carefully, put your thinking cap on, go out into the wild, and find the location. Report back about your findings in the comments below, but please don't give it away for someone who has yet to figure it out. Of course, if you find something even cooler during your travels don't hesitate to challenge us! If you find something really awesome, and think it's worthy of being included in the SPA Trip series send us an email!

“Where do you go if you are Run Out of Ammo?” Down down down! It’s just the law of gravity! Indeed Run Out Ammo is cold and clear even on the hottest summer days. If you’re seeing this view (either with or without snow), you’re probably on your way up; en route to a great day of recreation.

Indeed, the Wild West (Side) isn’t just for schuss guys and gals. What better way to spend a hot summer day than on a ramble up in the clouds? Go git sum! On the way back down though (in the car), look to your left for something like the O.K. Corral. This treasure awaits–don’t forget your bikini (or bathing suit if you’re a dude… FYI: these are links to!!. Don’t worry: it’s Run Out of Ammo (in the same sense that I’m Greg).

    Wow lots of awkwardness in this photo, from Right to Left:

    I look like a cranky 2 year old
    I’m at the starting line at the 200m dash with jazz hands
    Now I’m about to pull some freaky stop and turn around in mid air matrix move to get back to safety and avoid the cold water
    That didn’t work and I got so scared I lost a leg

    In other words I’m a wus who doesn’t like cold water.

      for the record that leg is NOT lost.. it’s just forward. You can see the right foot just poking past your left leg…

      cool. well glad to have you checking in regularly. Thanks for that order too! Just saw that. We’ll be sending it out right away…

      figured you and pinkman were buds since you two posted within a millisecond of each other… glad to have you both aboard as readers/commentators. don’t hesitate to keep us in line with your comments and/or via email. we’re always looking for feedback.

      i don’t actually understand pinkman’s references at all in relation to the location of the spa trip… but maybe that’s cause he’s thinking of a different location than the actual spa trip spot… or i’m an idiot. the latter is without a doubt more likely…
