Here in Seattle we take our outdoor activities seriously. Sometimes too seriously. Whether we're climbing, kayaking, hiking, skiing, or just talking about doing these things, our mountain sports inspire motivation, achievement, and even competition. Gravity Always Wins is a lighter look at the activities we love and the people who pursue them. It's healthy to laugh at yourself. 2014 brings the 10th anniversary of the publication of the first issue. The people and events may be dated, but the underlying themes are just as true today as they were in 2004. Who knows, maybe there will be a second issue this year.
