As Portland braces for its second snowfall of the year, we're embracing Beside magazine, a new magazine that celebrates the people who love the wildness of nature. Beside was started by a Canadian canoe and kayak company with the intention of inspiring a community of adventurous outdoor enthusiasts. We love this magazine for its beautiful images and captivating writing about adventures, activism, and the wilderness. They chose to print a physical magazine to encourage disconnecting from devices. Beside is committed to minimizing their global footprint; they only print the magazine on recycled paper.
In the first issue of Beside, we are enamored with Lise Ulrich's article and amazing images on exploring Svalbard, in the Arctic. We also loved the choice to feature John Muir's text on Yosemite from 1901.
This is a perfect gift for the camper, outdoor enthusiast, or aspiring adventure lover in your life. Come by the store to see a copy in person or order it online.
