Every year, as the snow melts in the Greater Yellowstone and the rivers swell, Outlaw celebrates the release of its two high-gloss publications in quick succession.
The summer edition of Mountain Outlaw magazine arrives in Big Sky on Friday, June 2, to be swiftly distributed to newsstands and businesses throughout the region. Our third annual Explore Yellowstone guide landed just in time for Memorial Day weekend, and both publications are en route to thousands of subscribers across the country.
Explore Yellowstone gives us the opportunity to share with you our favorite stories and images from the world’s first national park, and always rekindles our marvel for the protected lands right on our doorstep.
You’ll find an insider’s guide to day trips off the beaten path in the Old Faithful, Canyon and Yellowstone Lake regions of the park; a feature story on conservation efforts to provide safe passage for the region’s pronghorn population; a history of automobiles in Yellowstone that begins with the stagecoach era of visitation; activities and games to keep the kiddos busy, and much more.
The gateway town business directory found in the back of the book is reason enough to pick up a copy of Explore Yellowstone—the next time you’re traveling the region by wheel, you’ll find it a handy guide to experiencing the communities that circle the park.
The 14th edition of Mountain Outlaw magazine may be the most visually stunning to date, and features stories inspired by the Greater Yellowstone and beyond. Todd Wilkinson profiles Max Baucus, Montana’s longest-serving U.S. senator and the former ambassador to China. The Treasure State lawmaker gave the author his unique insight on the partisan schism eroding Washington’s ability to govern its citizens.
Also in the pages of Mountain Outlaw, you’ll find a comprehensive guide to the region’s summer music festivals, humor provided by kids and adults alike, and stories about the transformative power of rivers. Readers will also be taken south to the tropics of Central America, along the route of one of the hemisphere’s great winged migrations, and around the West with a filmmaker who’s dedicated his life’s work to protecting the last wild places.
Wyoming writer Claire Cella explores the growing influx of Chinese tourists visiting Yellowstone National Park, and how gateway communities like Jackson, Wyoming, and West Yellowstone are adapting to the burgeoning economy they bring with them.
Pick up a copy of each publication this season and discover how we’re influenced by the life, land and culture of the Yellowstone region, and beyond.
