The Place You Call Home

By Hannah Dewey   |   Feb 22, 2017 February 22, 2017

I never understood the power of love for the place you call home until the sage-sloped trails, sweet-smelling ponderosa forests and rocky rivers my husband and I visit daily were targeted for mineral extraction by a Canadian mining company. These are the places we frequent to re-connect with each other… Read More

The Reef Beneath

By Wayne Lynch   |   May 9, 2018 May 9, 2018

You know, it’s strange, you grow up as a kid in Australia and you see all these photos of the Great Barrier Reef and you hear all about it, and you feel you have some understanding or knowledge about the reef, but until you actually go up there and see… Read More

Nevada’s Darkest Treasure

By Shaaron Netherton   |   Oct 22, 2018 October 22, 2018

The Massacre Rim towers 1,000 feet above Long Valley in the vast reaches of northwestern Nevada. As with most hikes in this part of the world, getting to the top requires picking out an unmarked route, being flexible and overcoming obstacles. Halfway up, after skirting yet another talus field, sharp… Read More

Reflecting on the Future

By Chris Malloy   |   Oct 5, 2016 October 5, 2016

My three kids are young, too young for me to wax politics with. Nothing worse than an 8-year-old reciting slogans they don’t understand. For now, I’m getting them in the hills, letting them feel the cold and the growl in their bellies after a long day out. I’m doing my best… Read More

Our Wool Restart

Alex Megos is driving his aging Volkswagen down the curvy roads that thread the valleys of the Frankenjura. It’s June in rural Bavaria, where rolling green meets broad blue.

A Thirty-Five-Year Voyage Back In Time

By Nick Beck   |   Feb 23, 2018 February 23, 2018

In May 1981, I set out in a home-built Hawaiian sailing canoe from South Point on the island of Hawai‘i to my home on Kaua‘i. It was an adventure that would take me from the southern-most to the northern-most point of the Hawaiian Islands. I named my canoe Holopuni, “to… Read More
