It is the Fourth of July weekend. I am at a pristine lake somewhere in Colorado. Above me are the sheer walls of the mountains forming a deep cirque. The lingering summer snow is on the cliffs above and reflecting the morning light. The scent of pine is strong. The birds are calling out their morning songs. I sip my coffee and quietly contemplate the beauty around me. There is no one here. A holiday weekend and I have this gem all to myself. How could that be? It is because I went off the beaten path and followed no path at all. I went off-trail…

Paul Magnanti shows us what it’s like to leave the beaten path, with some great insight (And amazing photos) along the way. Read the full article below in Issue 17:
