Whitefish, Montana is one of my all-time favorite mountain towns. Sunset's August issue gave me a chance to head up there and try to explain why. A few trails, microbrews, and 10 pm-sunsets later, I came up with my idea of the perfect Whitefish day. Also new (and on the Articles page): the camping section of Sunset's travel awards!
Now for something totally different: The Long Way 'Round, by far the most personal and challenging story I've ever written, is out in the May issue of Backpacker. The piece tracks my 3-week journey on Montana's new Sacred Door Trail, an American pilgrimage that aims to bring a healthy dose of spirituality to the backcountry trek. Did it work? It did--and then some.
