letter from the editor

‘IM PRETTY sure I told my wife she was overreacting right before I clipped the side mirror of a parked car. This was moments after I’d made a turn into oncoming traffic. Nope, I wasn’t drunk; I was in South Africa. Inflated by my usual behind-the-wheel overconfidence and the excitement of driving Chapman’s Peak Drive—one of the most beautiful stretches of road I’ve ever seen—I made all of the usual bonehead moves an American can when following left-hand traffic laws. Even though I got an earful from the entire family, it only added to the excitement of life on the road in an unfamiliar country.Driving in the U.S. has a lot to offer, but when you go where the signs are different, the rules of the road are different, and…

field notes

FeedbackMENTAL NOTEIn “Ready for Takeoff” (April 2019), Zachary Levi made great points about how mental illness gets wrongly stigmatized, especially compared with other medical issues. Now that he has a big platform after starring in Shazam!, I’d encourage him to advocate to anyone who’ll listen, including politicians, to help change laws so that more people have access to mental-health facilities and physicians. Not enough people in his position are brave enough to push for these changes, unfortunately.THAPROTEKTOR VIA INSTAGRAMCLIMATE CALLOUTKudos on Adam Bluestein's story “Final Warning,” about writer turned climate-change activist Bill McKibben. That said, I couldn’t help but notice multiple stories elsewhere in the issue that drooled over fossil-fuel-spewing motorsports, including dirt-bike racing and NASCAR. A bit of a mixed message, no?BART SCRIVENER LADERA HEIGHTS, CAThe Quasi-Official SurveyMJ readers…

along for the glide

DISPATCHES FROM A WI LD WORLDTHE VALLEY OF the Gods, in southeastern Utah, epitomizes wild country. With no established trails, campgrounds, or facilities, the 35-square-mile expanse receives far fewer visitors than does nearby Monument Valley, making it a prime spot for rugged backcountry hiking. But perhaps the best way to explore it is not on foot but from above, as Shane Denherder, an Army helicopter pilot turned paraglider, can attest. A powered glider “gives you the ultimate freedom to explore,” he says—though not without the occasional hiccup. On a recent outing, Denherder ran out of fuel as he approached his rendezvous point with photographer Chris Burkard. This would’ve been catastrophic in a different kind of aircraft, no doubt. But with the paraglider, Denherder safely descended some 2,000 feet, and even…

the great buffalo revival

DILAPIDATED GRAIN elevators and concrete silos soar a dozen stories above the Buffalo River, seemingly close enough to touch from my kayak. It’s an incongruous sight with the serenity of the flat river so close at hand. The buildings once stored untold tons of grain for transport to major East Coast cities. These days, however, the maritime traffic in downtown Buffalo is mostly recreational vessels like our trio of kayaks, as well as motorboats, standup paddleboards, and even floating tiki bars—which look one mai tai away from tipping over.As we paddle north, a nostalgic aroma drifts across the water—Lucky Charms. Tour guide Jason Mendola, a native of South Buffalo and co-owner of Elevator Alley Kayak, points out the source of the sugary scent: the General Mills factory, one of only…

escape to middle-earth

NEW ZEALAND’S Ahuriri Valley, two and half hours from Queenstown, is sliced through by one of the best fly-fishing rivers on the planet. But up until recently, its accommodations were, well, lacking. No more. Today it’s home to one of the sleekest new lodges in the country, the Lindis, a five-room hideaway on the edge of the Ahuriri River. Driving up to it is like arriving at the lip of the Grand Canyon: It’s not there, not there, not there…and then suddenly it’s there, the rolling hillside revealing itself not to be a hill at all but a timber-covered roof floating above a steel and glass inn. Inside, the sprawling suites have uninterrupted views of the river and the Southern Alps beyond. A central lounge and bar splits the building…
