Best US ski resorts for spring break

Spring Break doesn’t have to be about the beach. Nowhere can you complement the parties and late nights of a proper spring break with outdoor adventure and even a bit of exercise like you can in a ski town. These five skiing and snowboarding areas offer ample opportunity for the whole shebang. You should still bring your swimsuit, though, because the hot tub has your name written all over it. 1.

Desert in Bloom

The vistas here in this land of desert and rock feature deep canyons and striated rock formations. But the most impressive sight is yet to come. At some point next month, the gray floor of the desert will be set ablaze by carpets of wildflowers, in riotous shades of purple, yellow and red. Aficionados maintain that witnessing desert wildflowers is one of the most rewarding experiences in nature. Fall’s dramatic leaf color change is guaranteed to happen every year. Desert wildflowers are far ...

7 Things to do in Grand Canyon

America has always been a grand place for the unearthing of the geological history, owing to the presence of varied terrain. Starting from the Amazon basin to the Yellowstone national park, every single place has proven to be extremely beneficial for the geologists to discover the secrets of Earth. One such place is the area drained by the Colorado River where you can take a Grand Canyon Helicopter tour. Since a long time this place was introduced to the mass, tourists have been flocking this p...

Don’t Miss The Spectacular and Thrilling Sedona Pink Jeep Tours

Savannah sat a little slouched on the seat, one elbow resting on the side of the pink jeep. “Well, if we’ve done it once, we can do it again,” she said with the grace of someone who’s experienced a few things in life. On our Pink Jeep Tour in Sedona, it wasn’t a few mild things. She’d just came down a 45 degree graded rock face called The Devil’s Staircase. “Oh, we’re really not doing this!” she’d squealed as we teetered at the top. Her and Kalyra squealed and giggled as their seats in the back...

Riding The Stunning Verde Canyon Railroad – a Top USA Attraction

I found it strange that no one from our community had recommended the Verde Canyon Railroad as one of the top things to do in Sedona. We had so many other tips that were spot on including dinner at Elote Café, hiking the Devil’s Bridge, the Pink Jeep tour, and all the fantastic vortex hikes. I only knew about the Verde Canyon Railroad experience when I popped into the visitor center to get a Sedona map. I overhead a staff member telling a couple about the train trip and mentioning that it was n...

Week 10: From Grand Canyon to Joshua Tree National Park

There’s something about the quiet repetitiveness of walking. It has an uncanny ability to harden yet soften you at the same time. It hardens your physical body, your stamina and your resolve, yet it opens up a space for you to live more gently. To contemplate and marvel. It’s about simplifying, removing all distractions and disconnecting from things that matter. All that matters is the scrunching of the gravel underneath your feet, the quiet rustle of the breeze, the awe inspiring natural surro...

Ship bows

A new visit to the “Palais Royal” …, but first something about the address of my blog.  I’m back to my original blogspot address. Some bad experience about a “lost blog” (for a couple of days) a few years ago made me consider using a “domain” and I got, via Google, a www-address, which you have to pay for (not much). This has to be renewed on an annual basis. I have paid, but the www-address can’t be reached: "This domain registration expired on 01/31/2019" . I spent a very long mome...

Is CBD legal? CBD oil laws

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is seemingly everywhere. The market boomed in 2018, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The Brightfield Group, a cannabis industry company, estimates that the value of the CBD industry will reach $22 billion by 2022 — and that doesn’t include any products with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Yet there’s still a major issue plaguing CBD use across every state: its legality. To understand if it’s legal or not, you need to first know what...

9 ways Gilbert, AZ will surprise you

L et’s start with a bonus surprise: Gilbert, Arizona, is the most populous town in the US. Not bad for a place you might very well never have heard of.

Gilbert is coming up on its centennial in 2020. Though there are probably 100 to match, here are just nine ways this...

Week 9: Off-Roading Adventures + Stunning Hikes in Sedona

Last week I shared how spending time in the wilderness helps you find yourself. It’s why I feel so happy here in Sedona and really have no itchy feet. We leave tomorrow (Saturday), and my sadness is fleeting knowing that we’ll arrive at the Grand Canyon. From one beauty to another. The wilderness also holds another super power to help you create a bigger future.

The best places to travel in March

March, for many, is the best month of the year. It’s the month when the perpetual freeze of winter moves away, slowly making room for sunshine, flowers, and all that happy stuff you dream about when snow’s literally blocking your front door. It’s also the month that brings us spring break, spring training, and festivals with burning statues, throwing paint, and Aussies jumping in a river. And then there’s that holiday on the 17th where everybody is suddenly Irish and nobody goes back to work ...

From the archives

When I posted those old California camping photos, I mentioned that we pulled a trailer across the country the month before we moved to France in 2003. I remembered that there was a photo of the trailer somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Until now. We hauled a bunch of stuff to Ken's mom's place in Carolina.   I think it was late April or early May. We drove down to southern California to see our friend CHM, then on through Arizona and New Mexico, where this photo was taken. From there we co...

Week 8: Finding Connection and Bliss in Sedona

Out here in the wilderness you have space to find yourself. That is why it’s so hard to leave once you are in it. There’s no frenetic energy weaving in and out of you competing for your attention and space. Mostly, it’s just you and the open spaces. Room to breathe. Room to absorb. Room to just be. “Oh, this is who I am.” My energy is not battling or getting lost amongst the chaos. It’s here sitting gently with me. I can feel myself. I noticed this when I stepped out of the train at Penn Statio...

Jerome ghost town

Misconceptions about Arizonans

Rugged, conservative, elderly, and rural — these are the sorts of adjectives people think of when they think “Arizonan.” These might have been true at one time, but the state is changing so fast that it’s hard to come up with a singular description that would fit the whole population of the state of Arizona. Yet here are 12 things outsiders always seems to get wrong about us. 1. We’re all old. Granted, the state is home to a lot of retirees, but with the three major colleges, improving job...

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...

12 Most Charming Small Towns in Arizona

Previously part of Mexico’s Alto California, the area that became Arizona was ceded to the USA in 1848 after the Mexican-American War.

Week 7: Desert Attacks in Tucson (+ stunning cactus scenery)

“Shh Savannah. Listen to that” She was incessantly talking again and I couldn’t quite make it out. It was a weird mixture of howling and yelping and we’d heard a similar sound earlier in the trail but had no idea what it was. “I think that might be a coyote. How cool is that? Keep an eye out for it Savannah” We kept walking. Craig and Kalyra were no match for my long legs and had fallen behind. Savannah always wanting to be by my side manages to keep up.

Week 6: From Big Bend National Park to Tucson, Arizona

I felt a tinge of sadness leaving the Big Bend region of Texas. It’s not just the good times I’m leaving behind, but that deep connection to isolated wilderness and myself. Unplugging and returning to nature is so important. It’s only when we get to the vastness, where nothing is pulling at or consuming our energy, can we truly find ourselves. I am here. I am real. My breath is worth something. What do I want tit to represent and why? In the wilderness, you realize silence has a sound. In a nor...
