Fall is awesome. Pacific Northwest is beautiful. Pacific Northwest in autumn is awesomely beautiful. Epic.
Minimal, stark, wide open landscapes dotted with numerous waterfalls, craters, and rivers. A beautiful place unlike any other place else on Earth. The coziness of small European towns intermingled with the natural beauty to rival that of the American West.
I flew WOW just two days before the airline suddenly went out of business. Spare the fact that they don’t give out plain water free of charge, I don’t have anything bad to say about the airline itself. In fact, I was quite pleased with their new planes and the purple colors of everything from seats, to lights and carpeting. But despite what most media articles say, WOW’s demise will be a very good thing for Iceland in the long run.
Winter is my favorite hiking season.
No roots, no rocks, no mud - just a clean, sparkling, magical path through the winter wonderland.
Natalie and I opened our winter hiking season on Mount Cardigan a couple weeks ago, but we decided to have a more proper entry with a winter ascent up Mount Starr King and Waumbek.
At the center of the fight for public lands, lies the most stark, and arguably the most beautiful landscape in the continental United States - Utah.
Many think of the desert as wasteland - a place of death, nothingness. That is far from the truth - sure, there may be few trees, few lakes, and seemingly little wildlife in the desert. But when we look closer, we find that the desert is teeming with life, diversity, beauty.
Outdoor adventures are my favorite, but it’s nice to wander around a beautiful city like Montréal once in a while, especially when special events are taking place.
Every autumn, Montréal hosts “Jardins de lumière” or “Gardens of Light”. For two months, September through the end of October, part of the Montréal botanical garden becomes illuminated with lanterns and various Chinese mythology characters. The show is amazingly beautiful.
