Postcards tagged: The Great Outdoors
GLACIER, Montana – Sit back in one of the rockers in the main lobby and crack open the paper in front of the perennially blazing fireplace, which is the size of a small dance floor.
I love to take the motorcycle to the Keys for a snorkeling trip. We're lucky to have amazing reefs and islands only a hop from Miami.
VAIL, Colorado – After a season of East Coast meteorological woes, one Connecticut family did the smart thing: They went to Vail. And found many reasons to go back.
SABI SANDS GAME RESERVE, South Africa – We followed lion tracks for hours, passing elephants, hippos, and giraffes, until we found our jackpot: two lionesses licking a freshly killed impala.
BURNING MAN, Nevada – As the festival is in full swing, there are no spectators, only participants. Edward Griffith gets in the groove.
96 and looking good! Here's to the lovely people in charge of 84 million acres of beloved American landscapes. Where would US parks be without you guys?
KIAWAH ISLAND, South Carolina – On another perfect day, I order a Palmetto Lager outside on a rocking chair, watching the scattered wisps of clouds and waves roll into shore.
MARS – The rover has landed! Talk about taking the road less traveled.
LONGYEARBYEN, Svalbard – Even when interrupted by the occasional snowmobile, the silence was deeper than any I've experienced.
MARFA, Texas – We went deep into the Chinati Mountains to find abandoned Texas Ranger houses, Native American rock art, and panoramic vistas perched high above the ranch.
