Beautiful photos and fascinating articles that help you explore the Adirondack Park, New York's stunning six-million-acre wilderness.
Founded in 1969, Adirondack Life has earned numerous national awards for the quality of its photography and design and the depth of its editorial content. The magazine covers New York's six-million-acre Adirondack Park, which offers more wild country than Yellowstone, Yosemite and Glacier National Parks combined.
Within six bimonthly and two special-focus issues, the magazine explores the region's people, places, wildlife, history and public issues, and gives readers insider tips on outdoor recreation, from hiking and canoeing to ice-climbing and backcountry skiing. In late spring, a special issue is devoted entirely to outdoor pursuits; in fall, the "Collectors' Issue" typically features architecture, interior design, gardening and home products reflecting Adirondack style.
Writers such as Bill McKibben, Russell Banks, Joe Connelly, Christine Jerome, Roxanne Robinson, Andrea Barrett and Amy Godine have contributed to the magazine. Their thoughtful essays, historical features and fiction illustrate how people respond to this special place. Nathan Farb, David Muench, Carr Clifton, Nancie Battaglia, Carl Heilman, Mark Bowie, Larry Barns and Ben Stechschulte are just some of the highly regarded photographers who share their work on our pages. In each issue, a mix of images and articles gives great insight into the park, where small towns coexist with wilderness.
