Our Thoughts And Perspective
As the nights draw in, it’s time to escape to exotic shores, from adventure travel in the South Pole and East Africa to dreamy beaches in the Indian Ocean
The elevation is starting to take its toll. Carefully planting one foot in front of the other, climbing through snow with my ice axe, I push on to summit California’s highest mountain.
You’ve got several new moves to try in today’s strength workout! From deadlifts to triceps presses, this workout is all about focusing on technique to get the moves right. If this is your first time trying some of these moves, don’t be afraid to take the first round slowly—so you really learn the exercise first. You can also practice the moves without weights first, then add your weight for the second and third rounds. Pick up the pace as your body warms up, and as you get more accustomed to the moves.
And of course, when you do that bonus move at the end—push yourself as much as you can! That move is all about moving quickly and getting breathless. We always suggest doing a quick warm-up first, and finishing with a soothing cool-down, like this one.
Tomorrow is a rest day, so make sure today counts!
Ah, fall! For many Americans, it's the most beautiful time of the year – especially if you live in rural areas populated by trees that, when conditions are right, ripen and burst into gorgeous shades of red, yellow and orange. Fleeting and often subject to a combination of unpredictable weather patterns, autumn's annual show is truly a sight to behold. Soon, dedicated leaf-peepers will be taking to the roads to hunt down and drive (and walk) among one of nature's most curious displays. But with only a limited number of days to choose from, where are the best places to see fall foliage?
First off, start with foliage reports or maps and be sure to gauge exactly where and when you'll want to go; peak foliage times can vary for different locations. Assuming you can schedule your visit to the trees at just the right time, here are several of the best places to see fall foliage around the country. And while you're there, add in some wine tastings, antique shopping and hiking – because soon enough, we'll all be hibernating, just like the trees, as winter comes!
The avalanche of box-fresh sneakers, smart watches, reinvented hoodies, beard oils, and so much more (a suit you can also work out in, anyone?) that comes across our desks every month offers plenty of fresh menswear finds worth shouting out.
Wish Jack Frost would stop nipping at your nose already? Grab a hot cup of cocoa, add some knee-slappers to your Netflix queue, and get ready to enjoy the season without the winter blues.
Our amazing National Forest System includes hundreds of millions of trees, one of the most efficient and readily available carbon sinks on Earth. However, unprecedented wildfires and other natural disasters –exacerbated by climate change, drought and historic forest management practices – have severely affected our National Forests’ ability to store carbon.
