All illustrations by Stuart Holmes Atlanta has always been a city of transplants. In a metro population of six million, about fourteen percent of residents were born in other countries (compared with New Orleans’s seven percent or Nashville’s eight percent). But if the international presence here is sizable, it’s also scattered. You won’t find a Chinatown or Greektown or Little This or That, at least not in the urban core (Gwinnett County does have the nickname Seoul of the South). The most famous strip of immigrant-owned businesses, Buford Highway, is not a singular ethnic enclave but a melting pot. That’s...

Does this saddle have a seat belt? This is the first question to cross my mind once I’ve hoisted myself astride a strawberry roan named Mae at Aspen Canyon Ranch in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Suddenly I’m perched 6 feet off the ground with 1,200 pounds of horsepower between my legs, and all I’ve got to hang onto is a saddlehorn and a flimsy pair of reins.

Building on its fun and functional ethos, Cotopaxi beefs up its best-selling product

Posted by admin on

The Allpa Travel Pack earns big points for clever design, clean aesthetic, and a surprising number of handy — and hidden — features. I have one piece of gear I’d bring, on every outing: a plush, cozy, warm — and frankly cool — fleece onesie. And while it’s great at any campsite, it has one noticeable drawback: It’s big and heavy.
