Backpacker Magazine – September 2012

September 2012 Table of Contents


>> FEATURES
Easy Epics
Fantastic views, hiking to match, total solitude without reservations. . . and it all starts where you park the car. That’s right, drive-up campsites a backpacker will love. And don’t forget the creature comforts. Kitchen sink? Please. Bring the table and cooler, too. From the Grand Canyon’s North Rim to a Florida swimming hole, you’ll find it all at one of these spots. By Jim Gorman

Going, Going...Gone?
For decades, hikers have journeyed to Isle Royale National Park for a life-list experience: see the island’s iconic wolves. The predators established themselves here when a pair crossed an ice bridge from Canada in the 1940s, and the population grew to 50. But only nine remain, and biologists fear the Isle Royale wolf will soon be extinct. Gustave Axelson goes in search of the last pack.

The Long Way Home
Fourteen years ago, Karl Bushby made a vow: He would walk from the tip of South America back to his native England. Since then, he’s crossed Central America’s guerilla-ridden Darien Gap, traversed an ice bridge across the Bering Strait, and hiked some 17,000 miles. He’s also left behind his family, and recently, seen his expedition grind to a halt. It’s time to ask: When is a hike too far? By Bill Donahue

Canyonlands Adventure Guide
Discover the towering sandstone wonders, hidden slot-canyon scenery, and deafening quiet of this desert park. Our scouts give step-by-step details for the best weeklong, weekend, and day hikes. By MacKenzie Ryan and Kim Phillips

Heroes
When Margaret Fuller first hiked into Idaho’s rugged Sawtooth Range in 1957, there were no guidebooks to lead the way. So she grabbed her kids and a notebook, and wrote the first one. She’s since penned seven more guides, and now—at 77—still hikes hundreds of miles a year.
