BOOZE CRUISE Loved the out-of-the-way-bar story [“A Cocktail Bar on Every Corner,” by St. John Frizell, June 2018]. We live in a great time, when traveling to small-town America no longer means margarita mix from a gun and Bud Light. All that was missing was a map and more places! To your list I’d add the Rose in Jackson Hole, WY (they make an awesome drink with beer, Irish whiskey, and eggs), and Leon’s Full Service in Decatur, GA (get the Shellback, made with aquavit and tomatillo shrub, of all things). I’ve heard good talk about Continental Fire Co. bar, but I’ve never even been near Houghton, MN. Just be sure to pace yourself before you get on the road to the next one. KYLE RESSLAR PORTLAND, ME BAD IDEA JEANS I was amused…

letter from the editor

ALMOST EXACTLY one year ago, I achieved grilling nirvana. It had been a goal of mine to tackle a whole hog, and I was hosting a family reunion and had to feed a small army. So I enlisted my brother-in-law Jamie (a frequent barbecue co-conspirator), and we went into full prep mode, calling local farmers to procure our pig (30 pounds), researching rubs and brines, and planning the method (low and slow on a Traeger smoker). It’s the kind of all-day cooking project that we love (plenty of time to drink beer). But here’s the shocking truth about our whole-hog adventure: It was actually pretty easy. Plus, nothing beats the drama of bringing the beast to the table, and it’s ridiculously delicious, of course—with leftovers for days. Topping that this summer…

get to the point

JOHN PRICE was willing to wait. On an August afternoon, as two of his friends, Nathaniel Boucher and Cory Chikie, ascended the Grand Sentinel spire—one of the Canadian Rockies’ premier sport-climbing destinations, in Banff National Park—Price, an Australian-born photographer and climber, hiked to a mountainous spot more than a mile away. He remained there for four hours as his friends scaled the needlelike 330-foot tower. Though Price himself had made the climb and snapped photos earlier that day, “I’d dreamed of shooting it from afar with a long, 400mm lens,” he says. He’d hoped to capture the scale of the feature and the panoramic alpine vista. “The whole route is superexposed, and you’ve got these beautiful, 360-degree views of the mountains,” he says. When the climbers reached the final section,…

swimming upstream

At 8 a.m., Lewis Pugh finally pulls up in his Ford Bantam, a miniature pickup that looks like the love child of an actual pickup and a Matchbox toy. Pugh, who is 6'1" and built like, well, a truck (albeit an older model at this stage), looks like he’s had to stuff himself in, and it’s possibly too much trouble to get out. I’ve been waiting for him for about an hour at a beach in Simon’s Town, South Africa, a whitewashed village near Cape Town. Pugh is the world’s preeminent cold-water and long-distance swimmer and an endurance athlete who has set or broken dozens of records, and he’s been training in these waters for his next big expedition, the details of which is the secret he has lured me…

the biggest swims

2006: THE THAMES During a severe drought, Pugh swims the 217-mile length of the river over 21 days, stopping to visit Prime Minister Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street. 2007: THE MALDIVES Pugh swims the 87-mile width of the archipelago to call attention to the risks that climate change and subsequent rising seas pose to low-lying islands. 2007: THE ARCTIC Declaring an intention to “shock the world,” Pugh becomes the first to complete a swim across the North Pole. The water temperature: 29 degrees. 2010: EVEREST To highlight the peril to the world’s glaciers, Pugh treks to Lake Pumori, an alpine lake created entirely by recent glacial melt—at an altitude of 17,000 feet. 2015: ANTARCTICA Pugh completes the world’s southern-most swim at the Bay of Whales. He called it the “most terrifying place I’ve ever swum.”…

float your boat

THE FAMILY FLOAT CATARACT CANYON, UTAH A family of first-time paddlers expects certain things: breathtaking scenery, ancient ruins, comfy campgrounds, thrilling (as opposed to, say, terrifying) rapids. Utah’s Cataract Canyon checks all those boxes, and outfitter OARS offers four- and six-daytrips through the canyon. The first half of the 98-mile journey is a chill-inducing mellow float that snakes through Canyonlands National Park’s Island in the Sky district, surrounded by 2,000-foothigh red sandstone cliffs, with stops along the way to explore cliff dwellings, petroglyphs, and Puebloan granaries. Then at about mile 50, just as your kids are getting restless and annoying, the Colorado and Green rivers converge, and things begin to change: The canyon walls narrow, and the water gets higher and faster. In the distance, the rush of churning whitewater, a hint…
