Backcountry: 'The New American Dream'

Processed with VSCOcamLove this article in NY Times Style Magazine that somehow captures exactly how I regard cabin life. I often dream of one day retreating to a beach shanty on the coast of West Marin, or a reclaimed wood barn in the sticks of the Adirondacks. Despite "bigger and better" being the mantra for the American Dream for decades, the article points to a shift in that ideology, suggesting that "smaller" is perhaps "purer and more inspiring" hence the "cabin porn" and "tiny living" movement. Be sure to read the article in addition to feasting your eyes on these gems in quiet places across the globe. Above: a summer retreat in Brekkest√ł, Norway.
