Tough Sledding in Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park was the one that got away. I’ve been to Denver some 10 times and done several road trips around Colorado but I never went. It’s only 90-minutes from Denver but it’s a good 45 minutes off the main highway down a state road. So it wasn’t convenient. However, I finally made […]

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is Impressive

Theodore Roosevelt National Park was a complete mystery to me. First, it’s located in Western North Dakota so it takes some effort to get there. Second, I didn’t know much about the Teddy Roosevelt relationship beforehand. Nor did I know that the Badlands extended up that far but looks different than at Badlands National Park […]

My Experience in Wind Cave National Park

Wind Cave National Park was a park I wasn’t very interested in visiting. I have been inside many caves around the world. In fact, I’d say I’ve been in many of the best caves in the world like the Postojna Caves. Plus, I’ve been in Carlsbad Caverns, Mammoth Caves and Great Basin National Parks; which […]

My Visit to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine

The coolest thing about visiting every National Park in America is you actually get to visit every National Park in America! This is different than trying to visit every state because often times you’d just go to a popular city or even drive through on a bigger road trip. Many National Parks are in somewhat […]

Congaree National Park is Whatever

Congaree National Park was the 39th US National Park that I’ve visited. While it wasn’t my least favorite; that award goes to Hot Spring in Arkansas followed by Cuyahoga Valley in Ohio; it was down on the list for sure. Congaree National Park is whatever. It was basically a big swamp. If you’re really into […]

Day Trip to Dry Tortugas National Park

Dry Tortugas National Park is not only one of the most remote National Parks in America but it may be the coolest. Dry Tortugas National Park is located at the far west end of the Florida Keys and is about 70 miles from Key West. It’s one of the most dramatic parks I’ve visited. Much […]

Driving to Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park is probably the most isolated US National Park in the contiguous 48 States-certainly that I’ve been to. Big Bend National Park takes some effort to get to any way you slice it. There’s no airport nearby that is easily accessible and it’s a good 4-hour drive from El Paso or Midland-Odessa, […]

The Pueblo Bonito Golf and Spa Resorts in Los Cabos, Mexico

I’ve been all over Mexico and seen a lot of places but Cabo San Lucas is my favorite part of Mexico. The Baja Peninsula is beautiful once you get south of Tijuana and Cabo is basically Scottsdale meet Malibu. I have been to Cabo many times and have some good friends that actually own enormous […]

Weekend in Miami

Any weekend in Miami is a good weekend as far as I am concerned. Miami is a city I’ve been to countless times. In fact it was the first city outside of the northeast I ever visited when my college roommate and I drove down to Miami for Spring Break 1997. I swore I would […]
