*Weekend read* Inside the Mind of Thru-Hiking's Most Devious Con Man - For more than two decades, Jeff Caldwell has lured in hikers, couchsurfers, and other women (and they're almost always women), enthralling them with his tales of adventure. Then he manufactures a personal crises and exploits their sympathy to rip them off. Our writer corresponded with Caldwell while he was still on the run, and came away with an intimate look at the life of a serial scammer who's found his easy marks in the outdoor community.

Nomadic life has been central to traditional Mongolian culture throughout history. Even with development and urbanization in recent years, more than 25 percent of Mongolians are living a nomadic life. They are dependent on their vast, open surroundings for survival. But life has become increasingly difficult due to serious changes in the land. Hundreds of lakes and rivers are disappearing and a majority of the country is at risk of desertification. Photographer Daesung Lee set out to capture this issue by creating backdrops of what the landscape used to look like and how the nomads are interacting with it today. The effect is similar to viewing a museum display. | Gallery @

California’s record snowpack and a late-season melt gave @bennymrr and an 11-person crew of kayakers a rare July opportunity to paddle the Royal Gorge of the American River, a three-day Class V run in the Sierras. On the expedition’s second day, @rushsturges ran the 90-foot Scott’s Drop, a two-stage slide that forms the highest of five waterfalls taller than 40 feet that kayakers face in the gorge. “You could definitely get hurt there,” says Marr. Sturges’s line almost convinced Marr, also a first-rate kayaker, to try the waterfall. “Next time,” he says. Photo: @bennymrr #tbt October issue, 2011 |

Last year, five friends set out from Pokhara, Nepal with mini-paragliders and 1950’s Royal Enfield motorcycles on a ten-day mission to the once forbidden Kingdom of Mustang in Tibet. The group of seasoned athletes and travelers made up of @nicgreece, Jamie and @IsabellaMessenger, and @codytutts and @cherisetuts, didn’t finalize their plans until a week out, which was kind of of the point. They wanted an adventure and a good ol’ figure-it-out style trip. Half the group was relatively new to paragliding—the other half was new to motorcycling. The table was set for some memorable experiences. Photo: @nicgreece/@wingatemotion | Full gallery @

Humans Nature: A new photo book from @lucasfogliaphoto shows all the weird and wonderful ways we connect with wild spaces. In an age when the average American spends 93 percent of their life indoors, Foglia photographed government programs that connect people to nature, neuroscientists measuring how spending time in wild spaces benefits us, and climate scientists measuring how human activity is changing the air. The scientists included in the book are now facing budget cuts and censorship by the Trump administration. |

@coreyrichproductions took this shot of Rikke Ishoy bouldering early one fall morning in California’s Volcanic Highlands area, near Bishop, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. “We were on a monthlong road trip through the West,” says the Lake Tahoe, California–based photographer, 28. “I loved the way the volcanic rock echoed Mount Basin, in the distance— and Rikke put it all into a human scale.” Rich used an 80–200mm lens, exposing 50-speed film at f/4 for 1/500 second. #tbt March issue, 2004 |

"Fish is one of my favorite protein sources when I’m out—they're easy to catch and they don’t have to be gutted and skinned. You can buy the most expensive rod, find the perfect place, choose the perfect time—and yet there's no guarantee that you'll come away successful. This uncertainty mesmerizes me." / Ever since Swiss photographer Bruno Augsburger discovered the Canadian Yukon Territory in 2000, he's made it his goal to spend as much time there as possible. Augsburger will spend weeks alone in the wilderness, relying on bushcraft skills to survive. His book, Out There, is a visual collection of those solo months as he travels through the often untouched Yukon. // A favorite from the archives @

Offshore sailor @deecaffari has an astonishingly badass résumé. She’s sailed around the world five times—twice solo and in each direction, including a 2006 voyage when she became the first woman to do it against the prevailing winds and currents. She is still the only woman to have sailed around the world non-stop three times. Last year, she joined the all-women Team SCA during the 2016/17 Volvo Ocean Race. This month, she returns to the event as the only female skipper, and at the helm of a mixed-gender team, which will start the 46,000-nautical-mile competition on October 22 and won’t finish until June 2018. We hopped on board with Caffari a few weeks before the race to talk training, why Wet Wipes are her most important piece of gear, and what life cooped up on a 65-foot boat for nine months straight is like.

@timflachphoto set up a makeshift studio in Kapama, a private wildlife reserve near Hoedspruit, South Africa, and got up close and personal with this female African elephant. “She got very used to me, so I was able to explore those elements that connected her to me, allowing me to anthropomorphize her,” says Flach, who lives and works in London. With a 110mm lens on his medium-format Hasselblad 203FE, he exposed 160-speed film for 1/1,000 second at f/2.8. #tbt March issue, 2004 |

To travel the Pony Express, riders had to brave apocalyptic storms, raging rivers, snow-choked mountain passes, and some of the most desolate, beautiful country on earth. To honor the sun-dried memory of those foolhardy horsemen, we dispatched @willgrantofthewest and a 16-year-old cowboy prodigy to ride 350 miles in a hurry. / 40th Anniversary Issue // Art: @whereveruwannabe@anitakunz |

On average, the town of Bergen, Norway, gets 242 days of rain a year—not ideal for the host of one of Europe's biggest cycling races (@uci_cycling). But when you consider the mountainous coastal roads, the Bergenseres' passion for cycling, and their outspoken, often brash local patriotism, it starts to seem like the perfect location to hop on a bike and ride.

Tested: Four Wheel Pop-Up Campers’ Woolrich Edition — These mini homes come with amenities like a refrigerator, toilet, sink, stove, dining table, heater, inside and outside shower, solar panels, and a queen size bed. They slide into the back of truck beds or can be attached through a flatbed conversion. They’re called pop-ups because the top third of the camper collapses while you’re traveling to increase aerodynamics and improve vehicle handling, but then pops up once you’re camped to increase headroom.

@jeremykoreski wasn’t expecting great surf when he shot this image of Noah Cohen getting barreled off the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, with a 5,000-foot range in the background.“It’s gorgeous out there, but the waves are usually bunk,” says the photographer, who lives nearby. This time, though, swell, tide, and weather lined up perfectly. “We spent the whole day on the water, which was pretty impressive considering it
was 44 degrees,” says Koreski. #tbt August issue, 2013 |

It took six days for @blakejorgenson to get this shot of mountain biker Darren Berrecloth setting up a cliff jump near the border of Nepal and Tibet in May. To get there, he and Berrecloth traveled by plane, by jeep, by donkey, and on foot, with all their camera gear and a bike. “It was totally exhausting,” says the Whistler, British Columbia, photographer. But it was worth it. “It was like traveling back in time. There’s nothing out there but tea huts, exposed mountains, and great riding.” #tbt August issue, 2013 |

Introducing the Outside Public Lands Forum - We're starting a Facebook group where it's safe to dig deep into politics. This will be the go-to spot for discussions about what these lands mean and how they should be governed. We want you to use the forum for posting links, asking questions, and sharing the stories that are most important to you.
