Our latest issue of FORUM
Journey to the Heart of Florida
Trek through the wilds of Florida—1,000 miles from the Everglades to the Okefenokee Swamp. For 100 days, walk, kayak, or ride the occasional horse through dense forests, prairies, rivers, lakes, and swamps. See wildlife, bear and panther tracks, and lots of two-legged characters along the way—from cowboys to commandoes. Join photojournalist Carlton Ward on this adventure and change the way you see Florida. That, and much more, in this issue.
