Hard to definitely pinpoint on a map, the Wave is a gorgeous rock formation near the Arizona and Utah part of the Coyote Buttes, in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. Don't rush off there expecting to just show up and visit, as this...

California, USA
I started to rock climb outside this year. Cathedral Peak in Tuolumne meadows can be climbed in 5 pitches. This is the view from the top.

Bahnhofstrasse 25, 7002 Chur, Switzerland
I didn’t even realize that the Bernina Express scenic train journey was on the UNESCO World Heritage list until I arrived at the small northern Italian town of Tirano to start the trip. There are several different routes from which travelers may...

Brisk winds whipped the chill factor to 11 degrees and below as shifting ice, spastic snowstorms and remote conditions readjusted itineraries daily on the Antarctica expedition. But no one seemed to mind when Mother Nature took the helm. Every...

Gornergrat, 3920 Zermatt, Switzerland
A trip up to the Gornergrat provides the best view of the Matterhorn without ripping a huge hole in your wallet. For less than 10 Francs, we were able to ride the lift up to Gornergrat and see one of the most spectacular views. At the top there is...

El Calafate, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
Years ago while living in Buenos Aires, I decided to take my first trip alone, to the edge of Argentina, down in Patagonia. Running along the Chile-Argentina border, Perito Moreno is one of three Patagonian glaciers that is not retreating. It...

Goudier Island,Wiencke Island, Antarctica
I was mesmerized by the icebergs in Antarctica- each unique like a snowflake. But in addition to beautiful looks, they also had a personality which is what I think drew them to me the most. An iceberg is a large piece of freshwater ice that has...

Sachseln, Switzerland
A deep valley in eastern Switzerland, the Lower Engadine region is a lesser-known alternative to themore developed Upper Engadine (think St. Moritz). Full of remote villages that sit along a gorge carved by the Inn River, the area draws hikers to...

Lille, France
Popped across the border into France over the weekend to hit the Christmas market. This is something that I have been doing every year for at least the past dozen years. Every year they erect a very large ferris wheel and its usually a freezing...
Save Place
Cotopaxi Province, Ecuador
We spent the night up on Cotopaxi (19,300 ft.) and the next morning went for a short walk up the trail. We were greeted by these llamas who blocked our path back down to the lodge! There were friendly enough, but very curious. I would highly...
Save Place
Reykjavík, Iceland
We got to Reykjavik on a rainy night, and the first thing I saw and heard was a lot of people in the street partying and Cher's "Believe" blasting from some club, loud enough to hear it everywhere. I though then that this place was crazy, but then...

Breckenridge, CO 80424, USA
Tucked in against Colorado’s Tenmile Mountain Range in the Arapaho National Forest, Breckenridge was founded during the gold rush of 1859—in fact, the largest gold nugget in the state, weighing more than 13 pounds, was discovered here...

Mt Spokane, Washington 99021, USA
Mt. Spokane is a great place for a winter stroll. The peak can be summited in a couple of hours, just don't forget your snow shoes.

Route des Coudres 200, 1298 Céligny, Switzerland
The forest at Bogis-Bossey, just south of Nyon, is perfect when it snows. The well-manicured forest floor is easy to trudge through, even with a heavy snowfall fresh and deep under your feet. But if it weren't this exact forest, it really wouldn't...

Uetliberg, 8143 Zürich, Switzerland
While visiting Zurich, some friends took me to Üetliberg, which was, quite literally, a winter wonderland. Walking the trails amidst the beautiful icy trees was surreal. It was freezing, but we didn’t mind – the coffee awaiting us at the lodge at...

Lolo Pass, Idaho 83539, USA
I was hesitant about snowshoeing in the beginning. Would it be lame? Would the shoes be awkward? Would I get bored? Turns out...I LOVE this winter activity! It is a great way to get out and PLAY when Montana is covered in the white stuff. My...

Homer Spit, Homer, AK 99603, USA
Viewed from the Spit in Homer, the midwinter sun reflects off the surface of Grewingk Glacier in the Chugach Mountains at the southern tip of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. In summer, anglers inundate this "cosmic hamlet by the sea," but in winter,...

Just as Rome has the Colosseum and Paris the Eiffel Tower, so Switzerland has the Matterhorn. Located above Zermatt, this 48,195-foot wonder attracts hordes of visitors, eager to see the morning sunlight beam off its four faces, ski its...

We were brought into the the back bowl by our guide and had fresh lines cruising through knee deep powder. The sun came out, which is rare around here in winter and I stopped to take a picture of what we had just skied. As a lover of the snow,...

One of the most popular day trips from Reykjavík, this dramatic and scenic rift valley is both the historical site of Iceland’s Viking parliament and a geological wonder in its own right. Among the highlights are the...
