Singing to the Grizzlies
...And getting hooked on the purple mountain majesty of it all.
By William Kittredge

The Parks
Dive shipwrecks at Isle Royale. Sea kayak Acadia. Run with wolves in Yellowstone. Creek-hop the Smokies. We pick 12 of the park system's crown jewels and let you in on the wildest ways to explore their hidden corners.
By Mike Grudowski

The Best of the Rest
Start in Arches, then move on to the B's (Badlands, Big Bend, Biscayne). Forty-three parks later, you'll be at ease in Zion.

Once, they were called pirates, brigands, highwaymen. Today, no matter what name you give them, they're the bane of adventure travel in the world's remote places.

25th ANNIVERSARY FITNESS SPECIAL

Take heart, champ, and get ready to maximize the endurance, strength, flexibility, speed, and power you never knew you had. We call it The Shape of Your Life—and five months from now, we expect you to be in it. By Paul Scott
