Sierra Club Winter Tracks

October 21, 2009

Just read through my Sierra Club magazine tonight. I really enjoyed the article written by Peter Frick-Wright called Winter Tracks: Seeking a guilt-free winter break, with snowboard and train ticket. I linked it to share with you, too. He went from Portland, Oregon to Glacier National Park and Whitefish, Montana. It’s quite an exhilarating story!


National Parks of the West

August 19, 2009

The August 2009 Sunset Magazine has a great article by Peter Fish and photographed by Ian Shive on National Parks With Amazing Views: Grand Teton National Park, Yosemite National Park, Channel Islands National Park, Canyonlands National Park and Yellowstone National Park. It has an on-line link to an interactive page with lots of information on Glacier National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Olympic National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, and Zion National Park. Watch the video of Sunset editor-in-chief Katie Tamony interviewing Ken Burns, who is the filmmaker of “National Parks: America’s Best Idea” – PBS will show it on September 27. The other videos are also very good. There are suggestions, photos and a map where you click on the park for even more info on activities, accommodations, campgrounds, and “top wow spots” from Sunset. I found it quite awesome!
