January/February 2014

Welcome to the first issue of 2014! This issue has everything you need to start your year in style. Our authors dig deep to reveal hidden treasures in places you thought you knew, from Mobile to Monterey. For those who love to party, Mobile, Ala., is the place to get an early start on Mardi Gras festivities, with parades, jazz, and great cuisine. Monterey, Calif., is close to the world-renowned Pebble Beach golf courses and home to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but there’s so much more to explore in this jewel by the sea. As a special treat for backcountry fliers, this issue features three airstrips you can fly to even in winter when most other mountain airstrips are snowed in. Camp beside the Snake River at the bottom of Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest canyon, or stay in a comfortable lodge beside the canyon’s premiere airstrip and enjoy great food plus all the hiking, wildlife viewing, fishing, or hunting you can dream of. We’ll also take you to a secret slot canyon deep in Utah’s red rock country that few have ever seen. One of our authors hatched a plan to fly to a nearby airstrip and raft the river down to the slot canyon; we’ll show you how you can recreate that adventure!
