I would recommend becoming a research geologist. I got my degree in geophysics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010. There was quite a bit of course work and labs that took place outdoors, including overnight trips. During the summer between your junior and senior year, most universities have you take a 6 week camping trip through a good portion of the U.S. before you get a degree in geosciences. After you graduate, you could easily get a very high paying job in the oil and gas industry or go into research, where you are more likely to be able to work outdoors.
