Explore Magazine’s 30th Anniversary Issue

Up here north of the border, Explore (“Canada’s outdoor magazine”) is celebrating 30 years in print. Last weekend I picked up the anniversary issue, a best-of selection of National Magazine Award winners from the last several years, and read it cover to cover—it was packed full of really solid outdoor travel narratives.

I’m not sure how readily available the magazine is outside of Canada, but if you can get your hands on it I’d highly recommend it. Standouts, for me, included “27 Funerals and a Wedding,” “The Story of Bear 99,” “The Boys and the Backcountry,” “Here Be Ogopogo” and “Hammering Away at Eternity.” Unfortunately the stories don’t appear to be available online.

Explore is a brilliant magazine! I really love the iPad digital version of the magazine I’ve bought from Zinio.

This really is a great magazine, but sadly is not really availiable in the US atleast not in Texas. You could always subscribe to it from the website which I would highly recommend.
