When we reflect on this year, we would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to you, the remarkable community of outdoor enthusiasts that is the heart and soul of Purple Lizard Maps.  

We want to share some holiday reflections and encourage you to continue to do what you so often do: opt outside over the holidays for outdoor adventure!

Thank you for knowing that unplugging is the best way to plug-in

You already know that spending time outdoors is fundamental for human happiness, health and well-being. As our modern lives present constant opportunities for distraction you realize that as we unplug from our screens and plug into the outdoors we are creating a powerful connection for ourselves, our communities and our planet. Your commitment to spending time in our beautiful public lands and enjoying real-world experiences is what makes our work special. Thank you for being a part of that connection and for sharing your love of the outdoors with Purple Lizard.

We really love the diversity of Purple Lizard seekers  

Whether you are an urban escape artist looking for adventure, a backpacker, bikepacker, car camper, overlander, day hiker, mountain biker, rail trail biker, ultra distance runner, double century gravel rider, rock climber, caver, canoer, kayaker, rafter, paddle boarder, modern day Thoreau, forest bather, mushroom hunter, waterfall finder, off-trail explorer or anywhere in between, we are proud to keep making maps to help you  check in to the natural world.

Thanks to you and all our friends for making our explorations fantastic

As we do every year, this year we met so many new folks living and working and playing in the areas we map. We really enjoy meeting local residents and visitors in the amazing communities we map and learning about what makes those places unique and special. We are super grateful for all the kindness and support shown to us as we work on our maps!

Thanks to all of you who have shared your stories about how our Lizard Maps have helped you create new adventures. You continue to inspire us every day.

Thanks for your support and for sharing your love of Lizard Maps.

Purple Lizard is growing, and you, and your love of outdoor adventure, are the reason. Thank you for being with us on this adventure!  

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones.  

Michael, Justine & Dave
