Our Annual Ode to the Great Outdoors


Welcome to The Independent’s annual ode to the great outdoors. With the sun swinging higher and summer rounding the bend, now is the time to cast away the dead weight of indoor living and throw yourself into the blues and greens that so fabulously color our coastline and countryside. But before you head out, or after you crawl back home exhausted, read here about a 53-foot wave-rider and Carrizo Plain explorer. Happy trails.
