Yosemite’s Glacier Point and Sentinel Dome
California’s Yosemite National Park is truly one of the most breathtaking places on Earth. Glacier Point, on the Yosemite Valley’s south rim, was at the top of our list of places to explore during our month-long stay at Park of the Sierras, a beautiful Escapees co-op park in the Sierra foothills.

Touring Denali’s Wilderness on the Kantishna Experience (VIDEO)

Glacier Point Wilderness Safari (VIDEO)
The first “big excursion” of our 2017 Alaska trip was a guided journey by boat, on foot and by canoe to the Davidson Glacier, a few miles south of Haines. Cheryl found this tour online, and as soon as we
Hike to Smuggler’s Cove in Skagway, AK
Skagway, once a Klondike gold-rush boomtown, today thrives mainly on tourism. We’d been here twice before on Alaskan cruises, so we’d done many of the day excursions in the area. After spending all day yesterday exploring the downtown Klondike Gold
