Shark Diving has been one of those things that will probably be on my top 10 favorite things done forever. One thing about me, I can be fearless. I crave adventure and all that comes with it!
Being down in the water surrounded by sharks, is magical, to watch and see their beauty. I've been into sharks my entire life, but when I visited the North Shore of Oahu and headed out early one morning to swim with these magnificent creatures, I can't help but love them more. This is one of those things, I hope to get to do again in the future. Want to learn more, see more pictures or the details of my diving trip? Visit this page HERE.
HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK
This is one of those things, that gives an entire new meaning to wanting to get up before the crack of dawn. Depending on the time of year, when visiting Maui, you may have to get up at 3am to make the drive up to the top. Yes, it's Hawaii, but it will be freezing, in fact sometimes it even snows up here. Yes, it DOES snow in Hawaii, did you know that?
But it's worth the early hour and the freezing temps, because when the sun starts lighting up the clouds and they appear as if they are being lit on fire one after one. Its a vision of beauty I seriously will never forget! More pictures and details can be found HERE.
MT. MCKINLEY (DENALI) AND GLACIAL LANDING
This one, is probably my favorite adventure EVER!!! There is no way I can tell you or show you pictures to do it justice. Taking a plane and flying low in and around the magnificent peaks of this part of Alaska, will literally take your breath away, it is amazing! The glaciers, the sights and then landing the plane up above 12,000 feet on a glacier that is itself moving and changing each day.
The term, it is so quiet it is loud, is really only experienced in a place like this where it's just you and nothing else living for miles and miles around. You can view more pictures and the details of the trip HERE.
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK
Love to hike like me? This is one hike that I recommend for the morning hours, as the sun and mountain setting when you arrive is just picturesque. Montana has some beautiful country and Glacier National Park is really a hikers paradise. One tip, the earlier your out hiking in a National Park, the greater your chances of getting to see wildlife! Want to see more pictures and info on this hike, you can find them HERE.
This beautiful gem, is such a short drive from San Francisco not to far from the famous Golden Gate Bridge itself, yet a lot of visitors don't even realize it is there. I can't help but just be in awe of the size of these giant Sequoia beauties! See more details and pictures HERE.
GO SKY DIVING
You could probably guess, but yes this is also going to go down as one of my all time favorites! This is one of those things, that if you are an adventure seeker and thrill lover like myself you just have to do this at least once in your life.
Free falling for over a minute playing around flying through the sky, so beautiful and such a thrill. If you want to read more and see more pictures visit HERE.
KENAI FJORDS NATIONAL PARK
Most of this National Park can only be seen or possible to get by by boat. I was amazed at how green and lush a lot of the islands in this area were. At one point we had to cut the engine on the boat, as over 60 wild Orca wales were swimming and jumping and playing all around us.
With a microphone dropped into the water, we just sat in silence watched them play and listened to their songs. A few hours later, we were surrounded by nearly 40 humpback whales, lost count of how many sea lions and other wildlife we saw. Eventually we made our way up into the coastal glacial areas. We were the first boat that spring to break into the ice in the turquoise icy waters. Eventually right up to a glacier where I was able to witness glacial calving chunks the size of houses cracked and roared through us like thunder as they broke off. And those were just a few things witnessed on this nearly 11 hour day of touring the seas and park. More pictures and info HERE.
UTAH'S WASATCH MOUNTAINS
Utah is another one of those states that is a hikers paradise. There are so many places to go and see that not only can one like myself never get bored. We have some gorgeous mountains, especially for those who like to climb. This is one of the local favorites, hiking up to Blanche Lake. More pictures and info HERE.
SWIM WITH STINGRAYS
Although I am a mountain girl, I do love the ocean and the wildlife in it. This is one of those adventures I took, and at the time had no idea that it was not exactly safe to try and catch a stingray and let it take me for a ride. (Not even kidding:) I had a great time though, and it's probably better I didn't know that they have barbs that can shoot through you. Yes, I was naive enough to think that it just stung you if the tail touches you:) Wiser now, but I would do it again, you can read more HERE.
DEAD HORSE POINT UTAH
Utah is a beautiful state, and I am not just saying that because I live here. We really do have one of the more diversely scenic states there is. Dead Horse Point is probably one of the most photographed vista's, but if you get a chance to stop by and visit yourself, you will not be disappointed! More pictures and details HERE.
WHITE WATER RAFTING - COLORADO RIVER
Love a thrill? Love adventure? Love scenery and fun? If you haven't guessed, I sure as heck do! White water river rafting down the Colorado River has all of it and then some. If you've been river rafting before, I hate to say it but rafting out west is an experience that you really can't get in other parts of the country. Take a group, hire an experienced guide and go for the ride of your life. More pictures and details HERE.
ARCHES NATIONAL PARK
Arches National Park is seriously one of the more incredible parks to see in America. Delicate Arch is one of my favorite hikes to take when I visit, I have probably done this one a few dozen times. If your a runner, you can even take a run up to the Arch, and get a killer hill trail workout in! See more pictures and hike details HERE.
And these are just a very small few of the fabulous places you can see on this blog!
