Apostle Islands Visitor Guide

There are a lot of amazingly beautiful landscapes in the Great Lakes region of the United States, but not many are as beautiful as the Apostle Islands in Northern Wisconsin.  In addition to being well known for its beautiful rock cliff coastline and amazing sea caves, the Apostle Islands are also known for being one of the best places in America to go kayaking.  In fact, it is such a prolific kayaking destination that it attracts some of the best kayakers in the country, if not the world, each year.

Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls Visitor Guide

The Great Lakes region doesn’t get the notoriety for beauty that the American West or the Atlantic and Pacific coastal regions do, but there are some incredibly beautiful areas in the Great Lakes region.

A few of my absolute favorite areas in the Great Lakes region are Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls State Parks in Minnesota.  Both state parks are located near the coast of Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, and both state parks are absolutely gorgeous.  Even better, they are both in very close proximity to one another, so it is very easy to see them both in one trip.

Yellowstone and Grand Teton Visitor Guide

I have been to exactly half of the 46 National Parks in the continental United States, with plans to visit the remainder of the parks here and outside the 48 continental states.  And I have plans to write about each and every one of those parks so that I can share with you my experiences and any tips I might have collected along the way.
