Over the Line

By The Dirtbag Diaries   |   Nov 13, 2017 November 13, 2017

“It’s like the Iditarod with a chance of drowning,” says Jake Beatty, one of the organizers of a bizarre, crazy race called the Race to Alaska. The course traces 750 miles of Alaska’s Inside Passage through complicated currents and tides, busy shipping channels and bear-ridden coastlines from… Read More

SUP the Danube

By Adam Colton   |   Nov 8, 2017 November 8, 2017

If you were to ask me what I did on the Danube River during my 21-day solo paddle from Ingolstadt, Germany to Belgrade, Serbia, my answer is simple. I fought crime, outran bad guys in speedboats with machine guns, almost died a few times from river monsters and 20-foot waves… Read More

Atlantic Salmon Net Pens Don’t Belong in Puget Sound

By Kurt Beardslee   |   Nov 2, 2017 November 2, 2017

Amidst all of the commotion, the subtle shift would have been easy to miss.

Painting the Prairie

By Emilie Lee   |   Oct 26, 2017 October 26, 2017

My artistic heroes have always been the turn-of-the-century landscape painters: Frederic Church, Sanford Gifford, Thomas Moran, to name a few. They were rugged outdoorsmen, exploring places like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite on some of the very first European expeditions to those places. They trekked into the mountains with… Read More

The Point is Forever

By Patagonia   |   Oct 23, 2017 October 23, 2017

On the best days—on any day, in fact—the view from the Mirador is about as beautiful as one could ever imagine. Past the stands of cactus in the foreground, you look out to the castle-like ramparts of the Morros, the swirling congregations of seabirds, and the long lines of swell… Read More

Timber to Tideline: Hama Hama Oysters

By Malcolm Johnson   |   Oct 17, 2017 October 17, 2017

“For us, the tide is the boss,” says Adam James of Hama Hama Oysters, a fifth-generation, family-run shellfish farm on Washington’s Puget Sound. “In late August and September, we’ll be out there on the beach harvesting at 3 or 4 a.m., and when the sun finally comes… Read More

What Can Rich Sensory Experiences Teach Children?

By Patagonia   |   Oct 12, 2017 October 12, 2017

Patagonia has offered corporate-sponsored on-site childcare since 1983. The Great Pacific Child Development Center, GPCDC for short, is where infants and children spend their days crawling, running, climbing and exploring, mostly outdoors, while their parents work. We wanted to tell the story of GPCDC, so last year we published … Read More
