Outdoor Retailer: Goodbye SLC


August 7, 2010

Outdoor Retailer closed its doors yesterday, and now we're out of here! Stay tuned for some final OR coverage next week, but much of the Trailspace crew (namely my family) will be off exploring the mountains of the West for the next few weeks.

Here are a few final pictures from the show:
