I had gone hiking in Hawaii several times before. But never on Lanai. This was my first trip. And the Koloiki Ridge Trail would be my first hike on the island. And as much as I wanted to hit as many trails as I could on the trip, I knew I must spread out my […]

A trip planned to Toronto, as I mentioned in my look at travel in 2013, is now off. Instead I’ll spend time in Yellowstone National Park, staying in a cabin near the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Filed under: My Photos Tagged: Hiking, National Park, Travel, Wyoming

I set off from Hulopo’e Beach Park as part of a group to spend the morning hiking Lanai’s Fisherman’s Trail. The hike was lead by Lanai’s park rangers and cultural experts as part of a training opportunity for new employees. I was able to join in as part of my Lanai Visitor Bureau trip, although […]

Hiking in Wyoming’s Sinks Canyons State Park is a great way to break up the long drive to Yellowstone from Denver. By about hour five on the road, I was ready to stretch my legs past getting some gas. So the sign pointing me to the park from Lander could not have come at a […]

Colorado’s Waterton Canyon is the start for hiking the Colorado Trail, the 486-mile-long hike from Denver to Durango. When I set out, I didn’t intend to do nearly that much. Not even close. I only wanted a quick six mile jaunt in and out. At the end of the day, though, I had done about […]

I have a new favorite place in Hawaii. I know I say that a lot. So sue me. While you’re at it, add another great Hawaiian adventure to your bucket list – visiting the historic Kaunolu Village on Lanai’s south side. It’s one of the most picturesque places in Hawaii I’ve ever visited. Hands down. […]

The roads in Yellowstone National Park run in the shape of a figure eight. The two circles together are known as the Grand Loop Road. Separately, they’re at least a day each to explore. I recommend more time to sit back and enjoy the scenery and animals, but if you’re in a rush then two […]

The north loop, which I wrote about last week, certainly has a lot of great things to see in Yellowstone National Park. But if you only have one day, then the south loop is where you want to spend it. If you have two days, which should be the bare minimum to see the park, […]

I’ve lived in Colorado for thirteen years, but not once have I gone hiking at Red Rocks. I’ve done the stairs bunches of times. I’ve even hit the trails at nearby Matthews / Winters Park. But not once have I gone hiking at Red Rocks. Why not? Good question. Probably because of all of the […]

A lot of tourists head to the Kanepu’u Preserve to see Lanai’s Garden of the Gods. The views are stunning. Molokai and Maui are visible across the channel. Whales can also be spotted during the winter season. Without a doubt the garden is a great place. But it’s not the only place to see in […]

There are a lot of things to see in Yellowstone National Park. That’s why I recently wrote about them, when I discussed what to do on both the north and south loop roads in the park. But if you don’t have time to do all that, if you can only spend a short while exploring […]

I started hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park early in the morning with a friend. Our goal was to make Ouzel Falls from the Wild Basin trailhead. That was easily doable, considering it was only three miles away with an easy elevation gain of under 900 feet. We set a much more difficult secondary goal, […]

Hiking in Gooseberry Falls State Park is one of the best things to do in Minnesota. Whether you want a short hike or a long one, the park truly has something for everyone. And I’m surprised, as someone who grew up in Minnesota, it took me this long to visit the place. To be perfectly […]

There are a lot of things to do in Milwaukee. This surprised me, to be quite honest. Never would I have thought there’d be so much to see and do in the city. There was so much to see and do that I didn’t even get to everything I would have liked. While I could […]
