USA Travel Stories
Mothers And Daughters In The Same Boat In January of this year my mother perused Explorations in Travel's brochure of vacations for women over 40 and told me that she'd like to go on the multi-generational windjammer weekend. I'm not a sailor and I get seasick. I asked my sister if she'd like to go with our mom instead; no, she gets seasick. How about my niece a junior in... Read more >>>
Tacoma, Washington: Chihuly Glass No longer hidden in the shadow of Seattle and Mt. Rainier, Tacoma is, like Cinderella with her missing slipper, bringing attention to itself with glass. A visit to the city is worthwhile if just to see its new Museum of Glass, opened in 2002. The museum's ultra modern architecture features a roof anchored on one side by a sea of... Read more >>>
Gold... In the ancient language of Sanskrit it was called Jval. Deep in the red clay mine pits of Peru they called it Oro. Mankind has always had a thing for shiny metals... The colors of polished gold, silver and copper are indeed quite beautiful. Imagine yourself gazing into the first hand held mirror of polished gold, thousands of years ago, and... Read more >>>
Hawaii: Molokai Mule Ride: View The Natural Beauty Of Hawaii Without Getting Off Your Ass Eldon "Buzzy" Sproat, the owner of the Molokai Mule Ride, was easy to find with the help of his partner, Roy Horner. Roy described Buzzy, who was standing beside his mule, as "the one with the hat that is not the mule's butt." Sproat bought the operation in 1995, and if ever someone had a business in his genes, it's Buzz. He is a third-generation mule skinner -- his grandfather was a Missouri... Read more >>>
Me, Moab, My Bike, and a Bus I found AdventureBus in the Sunday Travel section of the L.A. Times. I had one week of vacation before school began again and I wanted to exercise my brains out. After viewing online the different trips they offered, ranging from Baja to Alaska, I decided to join the Slickrock Express trip, a tour of the hot mountain biking spots throughout the Southwest. The thought of riding a 40 foot bus out... Read more >>>
California: Ojai Weekend Getaway Located off Highway 101 just 30 miles south of Santa Barbara and 14 miles inland from the ocean, the idyllic Ojai valley has attracted visitors since the Chumash Indians discovered it 8,000 years ago. (The Chumash named it "ojai," or "nest," because of the way the mountains encircle the elongated east-west valley. It's pronounced "Oh,... Read more >>>
Dancing with Caribou under the Midnight Sun A Women's Journey on Alaska's Kongakut River with Equinox Wilderness Expeditions We've been flying over a seemingly endless range of mountains for more than one-and-half hours -- dark, brooding gray and black ridges, and golden peaks streaked with orange, while dark green swards of green spread across the valleys and sinuously twisting ribbons of water shimmer in the sunlight. In and out of... Read more >>>
Washington, D.C. National World War II Memorial Finally, after a 59-year wait, the National World War II Memorial was formally dedicated in Washington, D.C. on May 29, 2004. Symbolic of the 20th century's defining event, it is positioned on the Mall's central axis in a strategic, and scenic, location between the Washington Monument (a symbol of the country's 18th-century founding) and the Lincoln Memorial (a symbol of the 19th-century...
