Sights Unseen: 1993

What dominates the Alaskan landscape? Denali, the tallest mountain in North America? Or is it the fearsome grizzly bears? Neither, says the author in this entertaining, cheeky essay about a backpacking trip he took in which both Denali and the bears proved elusive long enough for him to learn why people really travel to the wilderness: for the stories they hear, and the stories they'll tell later.
