Geography Lessons Words by Lisa Richardson Photos by Garrett Grove

One Christmas, my brother gifted me a copy of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. I hate those kind of books. He and his girlfriend could both name-drop dozens of the tick-listed destinations, but I was mostly perplexed. What did you do there? Came, saw, conquered—never to look back. Judginess harshed my holiday spirit. It all seemed so trivial. They struck me as hollow victories. Not that I don’t have tick lists, but suggesting there’s a formula is a swindle, a slickly packaged con job promising downloadable GPS directions to happiness. I heard someone insulted once in a way that has stuck with me ever since: “He just doesn’t know his own geography.” So effectively dismissive was that single statement. I thought, I don’t ever want to be thought of in that way. And it’s true. What is it to claim a destination with a selfie if you never stared your own fear in the face? What’s a tick list if you had to line up behind a hundred nameless strangers for your carbon-copy moment? I’d trade knowing the whole world’s geography to at least have a sense of my own. Yet, I stare out my living room window past mountains whose names I don’t know and ridgelines I’ve never climbed, longing to go somewhere else, for places with strange names and stranger light, as if I might find a betterfitting version of myself somewhere out there, instead of here in the town I live in. “You go to these places to dream,” says Leah Evans, “which is strange when you live in the places that are The Dream.” Evans lives in Revelstoke, British Columbia, where she just bought a fixerupper. Revelstoke is the boilerplate ski town. Around the world, skiers and snowboarders fantasize about—even fetishize—Revy. It is mecca for a skier. The kind of place where skis poke out of beds of rusty pickup trucks. The mountains are big and steep and wild, the backcountry terrain is endless, and no luxury hotels contaminate the downtown vibe, with its dark, beer-soaked pubs. And yet, Evans leaves her town regularly for places with less predictable snow and more challenging conditions. Why? “The jaw-dropping moments are so much more common when you travel,” says Evans. “When you’re in completely unfamiliar terrain, everything is onsighting.” Even if conditions are better back home, the full sensory impact is lost when you stay local. Up against unfamiliar geography, terrain and climate,

“I have never felt as far from home as I did while visiting Turkey. 6,500 miles or so from my natural habitat, my senses were flooded with unfamiliarity. On our first day out in a small mountain village named Ayder, we stumbled into a small trailer adorned with Ottoman Empire-era clothing. For a small fee, we were decked out in robes and hats and immortalized in a snapshot from a distant time. When I strapped in, the moment became a beautiful synergy of culture shock and comfort, as I was suddenly back at home, sliding downhill on snow.” —Alex Yoder WADE DUNSTAN
