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.
I started thinking of all the things I can get for $25 in Sri Lanka. 3 days’ accommodation. 25 lunches. A tuk tuk load of Tambili coconuts. $25 is a lot of money in Sri Lanka.
I’m convinced that Los Picos is a gem of Spain that any self-professed outdoor lovers should not miss.
I’ve been back for about a week and I still can’t stop blabbing about Los Picos and the Cares Gorge. It’s surprising how little known this national park is in the States, even among my hiker friends.
Even if you’re only remotely into hiking, the Cares Gorge (and Los Picos) is truly spectacular and is worth a trip if you ever find yourself in Northern Spain.
Learn from our mistakes. Here’s what NOT to do when backpacking in Denali National Park. We couchsurfed and camped our way from Juneau to Denali National Park and saw some of the most beautiful sceneries we’d ever seen.
If you’re looking for one moderate hike to do in Glacier NP, I don’t think you can go wrong with Grinnell Glacier Overlook from the Highline Trail.
The hike up Parker Ridge in the Canadian Rockies is one of our favorite day hikes in the area. A favorite because it offers so much for so little time.

I went hiking in the cloudforest of La Selva Negra and came face to face with its treetop inhabitants.
For a drive-through glacier, you know – the type of glacier where you can simply drive to, park, and gawk at, Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau was still impressive.
So when our Couchsurfing host told us about Mendenhall glacier hike – we jumped at the chance.
