Freebie: Happy New Year Desktop Wallpaper

January Desktop Wallpaper
January Desktop Wallpaper (download below)


To start off the celebration of a New Year, I am offering a January calendar to download to your computer or mobile device. I find that just looking at beautiful scenery every day whether on a computer or outdoors promotes mental health and gives that gentle reminder to get out enjoy life.

Each month this year I will be posting a new calendar to download. Enjoy and feel free to share!

January 2014
This months photo was taken last winter looking from the summit ridge to Mt. Baden-Powell in Angeles National Forest. It was an icy, cold and clear day. You can read about it HERE.


  1. Rockin’. I finally finished my “JMT 2013 Movie” and was reflecting on the new year and how much of that JMT experience was helped by you and the many other bloggers that helped my learning curve. Literally every aspect of my hike had your stamp on it: gear, tech, food, blogging – thank you very much! I would be honored if you would take a look at the Movie if you have time.

    Best of luck in Scotland and all of 2014. If you fly to London on United from LAX, come to the cockpit, it would be great to meet you.

    • Loved your video and journal. Beware Readers: If you watch this video you just might find yourself quickly planning your next backpack trip.

      Great that you were able to use some of my info with success. Thank you for the feedback. We are booking flights today to Scotland. Now that would be cool if we could meet! Hope you are planning something fun in 2014.

  2. It’s funny seeing a snow-covered mt in January – we’ve been swimming everyday for the last few weeks as Auckland (NZ) goes through summer!

  3. Thank you Rockin’ for the gift of the wallpaper. It looks great on the computer, and the calendar comes in handy too. I’ll change it every month until I hit the trail in April. It will give me inspiration!

    • Super! Glad to hear you are hitting the PCT again. This summer I am hoping to finish the trail hiking through Oregon and Washington. It is so fun just thinking and planning. Good luck on your upcoming adventure.

      • Yeah, this will be my last shot at a thru hike. You will love Oregon and Washington! And good luck to you also. I thing the planning and thinking about the trail is almost the best part of long distance hiking…. Until I get out into the beauty of the wilderness.

  4. Thanks so much! It looks beautiful on my screen!!

    • Hello Melissa,
      Glad you are enjoying the scenery. I am really liking the Wallpaper on my lock screen of my phone. The at-a-glance calendar is very handy. Happy New Year!
