The Via Ferrata in Telluride is just another reason to come visit the Southwest part of Colorado (I think it’s the most gorgeous part of the state.) It’s the most fun you can have scaling a rock wall while safely attached to a cable.
Living in our converted Sprinter van we found our temporary home in the wilderness around Sedona.
Carizzo Plain was an impromptu detour on our way from California to Arizona. This National Monument is located 100 miles north of Los Angeles and had a feeling of being in the middle of nowhere (because it is). We were hoping that we’d be there in time to see the wildflowers.
Where else would you go climbing in the middle of winter in California?
Little known outside climbing community and Oregonians, Smith Rock State Park in Western Oregon had the kind of sceneries that leave you bug-eyed and slack-jawed.
After spending some time in Savannah, I couldn’t come up with a better word to describe the city other than ‘romantic’. In fact, I think Savannah might be one of the most romantic cities I’ve ever set foot in.
Who makes the floats? Who pays for them? What’s the deal with the masks? Those are the questions I’d never asked myself. Having a big aversion to rowdy and drunken crowd, Mardi Gras is not high on the list of things I’d like to do.
I decided to take a 10 hour bus ride to New Orleans, one of the places I’d wanted to visit for a while. Here are the lowlights and highlights of my visit to New Orleans.
Climbing Snake Dike in Yosemite is one of those trips. Those who have been to Yosemite National Park will be familiar with this iconic feature in the park. Many might have even hiked to the top, a grueling 16 mile round trip that rewards you with one of the best views of Yosemite Valley.
I was keen to try out a version of canyoning that doesn’t have ‘God, I’m going to drown’ aspect, and what better place to do that than Zion? Zion’s famous slot canyons is just the place for breaking into canyoning.
When planning the itinerary of this Texas – California roadtrip with the 2 people I met on ThornTree, I made it clear: I don’t really care about the other places, but we have to stop by Antelope Canyon.
I had wanted to do a cross US Southwest roadtrip for a long time but I have been unable to convince any of my friends to go with me. I know this made me sound like I had really lame friends…
