1. Why Jungmaven Wants Everyone in Hemp by 2020

    Rob Jungmann’s company, Jungmaven, is not your ordinary T-shirt brand. His mission goes much deeper than outfitting the general public in Made in the USA products. Rob, an environmentalist and a leader in the hemp movement since the early ’90s, wants everyone in hemp by 2020. Rob and I live in the same neighborhood in eastern Los Angeles, and instead of bumping into each other while running around the lake, buying cookies at the local grocery store, or listening to a Sunday afternoon country music concert, we made real plans to sit down and talk about the benefits of a very controversial plant. … Read More

  3. The Rhythm of Adventure with the Ninja Suit

    The rhythm of adventure knows no bounds. It inspires a fluid motion from one environment to the next and encourages us to fulfill our need to stay active, to keep moving. It’s a 2:00 a.m. wake-up call to hit the trail for your first splitboarding trip. It’s wading upstream in search of new waters to fish. It’s racing a setting sun while bouldering in the high desert. And sometimes it’s as simple as a blissed-out parking lot session after surfing with friends. The trick to transcending from one adventure to the next? Well, the Ninja Suit by independently owned brand Airblaster knows a thing or two about that.  … Read More

  4. It’s Not Beef, It’s Conservation: The Nexus of Rangelands, Ranching and Conservation in the 21st Century

    Rangelands comprise 53% of the American West. We often speed through these landscapes on road trips at 80 mph and associate them with ranchers, cowboys and vast herds of Angus, Beefmaster, Charolais or Hereford cattle. But in fact, this high desert sea of grass and sagebrush supports an entire native ecosystem: plumes of songbirds, tides of pollinators, and migrating raptors, elk, desert bighorn, mule deer, sage grouse, sandhill cranes, pronghorn and indigenous bison. These landscapes are some of the most vital and misunderstood patches of Earth we have in America.  … Read More

  7. Basket Art House: A Creative Studio for Environmental Non-Profits

    As many in our nation hold their breath as the new administration takes office and awaits the possible ramifications for our environment, it’s comforting to know that there are a variety of grassroots and established non-profit organizations on the ground working to protect the Earth. What’s important now is to focus our energy on supporting those organizations and their work in any way we can, and Geoff Holstad, Apparel Graphic Designer at Patagonia and Director of the roaming creative residency Cabin-Time–see RANGE Magazine Issue Five for more information–has launched a new non-profit venture called Basket Art House to do exactly that. … Read More

  8. Backpacking in Oregon #18

    A beach scene on a sleeping pad, sand still in her shoes from the trip before.

    We sit & lay on opposite sides of winter drinking rose from a space bag.

    Back in the city, a neglected fern dies on the windowsill.

    The empire still feels like a punch to the stomach.

    Who will carry me back home after this hike? … Read More
