This issue pays tribute to nature’s healing influence. Paul Sveum’s piece illustrates the point beautifully, recommending that we unplug from our high-tech nonsense and actually sit and listen to nature instead of treating it like a glorified treadmill. To really demonstrate the curative power of the mountains, we’ve got a feature on summiting Granite Peak in the wake of a breakup. Believe me: the higher you get, the smaller your problems will seem. So sit back, enjoy our summer issue, and then head into the woods to enjoy nature. Reconnect. You’ll find what you’re looking for.
